Happy New Years

Waldorf Ford would like to thank all of you for the support that made 2012 an amazing year.  As we look forward to 2013, the much talked about, New Years Resolution, comes to mind, but what exactly can we be resolute to do… or not do in the year 2013.

One suggestion was to be less superstitious about the number 13, 2012 had 3 Friday the 13th,  all 13 weeks apart and we didn’t have any bad luck. It was all just sentimental superstition.

A thought came to mind. What if, the New Years Resolutions were as much superstitious as Friday the 13th, and maybe as sentimental a traditions as can be? In this spirit, Waldorf Ford has gathered some of the more comic New Years Resolution we could find.

10. I will think of a password other than “password.”

9. I will check my work e-mail account at least once this year

8. Start a blog about how I would write more often if I had something important to write.

7. I will never again show up drunk at a custody hearing.

6. I will cancel at least a few of the 9 or 10 e-mail accounts I currently have.

5. Read a serious book with artistic merit like Twilight.

4. I will not ring the stewardess button on airplanes just to get her phone number.

3. I will stop saying,”Ooh, that feels nice” when the TSA  agent frisk me at airports.

2. I will not fall for the trap of making a new years resolution and forgetting in a week, instead I will make 52 resolutions that I can forget after a week,

1. I will think of 10 actually funny new years resolutions and post them here next year.

.. Thank you for reading all the way to the end. you may just have the resolve to finish an actual new years resolution. Maybe you will finish that independent film you said you would? Waldorf Ford wishes you luck.

The problem with New Year Resolutions is the way people make them, take getting fit for example, this is not something you can just say, “I will eat healthy and get fit” If Waldorf Ford blog readers wanted to get fit, they would spend time doing research on how to get fit.  It is so much more than “Eating healthy and getting fit”. This is the sentimental part of the resolutions. The line becomes an incantation. “I will do this” and we expect it to magically happen.   Its a little bit silly, but in such as way to better ourselves and that at least we at Waldorf Ford can enjoy.

Miracle at 30 Ford Street

Twas the Friday before Christmas

All through the dealership

Every customer was smiling

Even those with facial paralysis

The showroom was stocked with cars from here, there

At Waldorf Ford, we want you to know that we care…

Happy Friday and happy holidays to the friends of  Waldorf Ford.  Today we are in the holiday Spirit, as we prepare for Secret Santa and the last weekend of shopping before Christmas. Despite the title, we are actually located on Crain Highway, but miracles happen here too.

Today, December 21st is the Winter Solstice. the shortest day of the year, from here forward the days will become longer and the earth’s tilt will begin to change, sending us into the summer months. A reason to celebrate for sure if you are anything like me and enjoy warmer weather.

Earth bathes through 24 hours of sunshine on December 22, 2007 in celebration of the winter solstice.

Years ago celebrations in winter would occur as a way for people to celebrate making it  through the harshest and coldest months nature could throw at them. As  society changed from agrarian to industrial, and then post-industrial and digital, the reason to celebrate has changed from surviving the winter, to the simple but equally important joy of being with family and friends.

We hope you all have amazing holidays, stop by and tell us about them,

Waldorf Ford will close at at 3.pm.  Christmas Eve, and will not be open on Christmas or New Years Day. We apologize for any discomfort this may create, but we need to hurry up and get to bed before Santa comes to give us that new Ford Fusion we have been wanting.

Thank you and happy holidays.
