Tindol Ford

Your up and ready to go buy a car. Not just any car, this car is the one you have always wanted. You want something sporty and slick. It doesn't really matter to anyone what kind of car you buy, so your retired and not listening to you wife, are the kids and you getting something the "Old Man" likes! You slap your hat on and head out the door.

Getting up early and going by yourself was the plan, this way no one could stop you from buying the dreamy red sport car you have always dreamed about. This time you will be the one to make the final decision! 

As a new car buyer you want to find a Friendly Atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. You would love to go to a place where people genuinely care.  It wouldn't hurt to maybe see a familiar face or two, from the neighborhood or church or maybe a employee you have bought a car from before. It's makes one feel good to work with someone you know or have worked with before.

You drive the slick, shiny new red car in the garage and your bursting with pride! You can't wait till the kids come over later to check what the "Old Man" bought, but first you know the first person you have to show it to is your wife. She walks out the to the garage, smiles up at you and tells you made a great decision and that she loves the shiny red color. 

You plop down in your favorite comfy chair and your happy with yourself. You had a good day and made a great decision, then you hear your son come in, "Dad I love the new car, but its just like the last family car, but it's a different color. You shrug, sometimes you just have to stick with something that last!

Ideas for cupcakes and Goodies to make with kids at Easter!

Making Easter Baskets!

Have your kids make easter baskets this year out of Ice Cream buckets! This is a fun project for kids from 3 years old and up, of course as long as an adult is near by, since they will be using scissors and they may need a little help with the hole puncher and also you may want to keep an eye on the glue stick, it does look a bit like chapped stick or candy so tasting it may cross their minds, but remember they are making the basket with little or no help from Mom or Dad.

Materials Needed: 

Cleaned out ice cream bucket, plastic easter eggs, scissors, colors, copy paper, glue stick and a hole puncher to make holes on the side and construction paper in different colors, let the kids cut the paper out and use a glue stick to stick the paper to the bucket. They can also draw and color on white paper and cut this out to glue to the basket, anything will do, but let their creative minds decide how they want to decorate it. Think about it, it doesn't really matter what it looks like, as long as they make it, they will be proud and plus you will love it when you find it a few years down the road once they have left the "nest" and start their own families! What a memory!


 For the handle, punch a hole on each side and insert handle then tie a knot. You can use rope, ribbon or felt wire craft for the handle. Now all you need to do is fill up with plastic eggs and your ready for the best Easter Egg hunt ever!

Here is an idea I found on the internet: Ice Cream Bucket Easter Basket

Sport Durst Automotive Group is the place to go on a Saturday!!

It was finally the right time, the time to go out and buy your new car. Yes, you still had few months of school left but the old 'Ma" car had broken down, she had taken the last trip on that 45 minute drive to school.

Of course, when you venture out for your first adult new car deal, you have an idea what you want but, of course, it doesn't always fit the budget in your pocket book!

You got up early that Saturday morning and the first thing Dad asked,  "Are you ready to buy a new car?"  Excited, you glance at him with a smile and tell him I sure am!

Many hours later and several car dealerships, you are about to give up and Dad suggest, "Lets stop for lunch, it will make you feel better". Funny how eating lunch with a man who you see everyday, most of the time you fuss with, sometimes you talk to, but most of the time it's like your simply passing each other in the night so to speak, but that day you really enjoyed lunch, for the first time in awhile you shared what was going on in your life and so did he and it felt good. You could tell the way lunch was going, that today was 
what makes memories and this was a good one.

Then you mentioned a place you haven't gone to today and Dad nods and said, "You could have told me earlier about this place!
