goldie's maiden voyage
   june 27, 2003


To jet-set us back and forth to our summer house in the Catskills, Andy went out an bought a '75 Dodge Dart who's previous owner called "Goldie"...

Intermission: Tribe Called Quest Lyrics

Dialed Ali up to see what was going down
Told him I pick him up so we could drive around
Took the Dodge Dart, a '74
My mother left a yard but I needed one more
Shaheed had me covered with a hundred greenbacks
So we left Brooklyn and we made big tracks
drove down the Belt, got on the Conduit
Came to a toll, we paid and went through it
Had no destination, we was on a quest



We got no further than 3 miles, maybe two exits on the BQE...


... before we had to pull over because there was smoke coming from the hood...


... Gage was the bravest, popping the hood...


... as we watched all the antifreeze leak out...


... Kelly Ko was calm and composed, chilling in the backseat...


... while Gage rolled underneath to check things out..

... trying to figure out what to do ...


... leave the car?...


... wait for a tow truck?...


... push it to a gas station?...


... Andy called AAA. "Three hours for a tow truck? Fuck that"...


... let's push it...


... word.


... good times.
