Now that the Belle is no longer working we have no need of two vehicles, and this is where the bitter comes into play. Gus is my beloved pick-em up truck. This is the best and most versatile vehicle I have ever owned. I love Gus, but Gus has a manual transmission. My bride refuses to have anything to do with a manual transmission.
After careful thought and consideration I have arrived at a clear cut decision: I love my bride more than I love Gus, so Gus must go.
As of 7/26/2014, Gus is gone. I am in mourning.
