To Buzzy or not to Buzzy...

Regular perusers (both of you) will recall my bus, Buzzy and that he had a slight problem last Monday - well, I just got a call from the mechanic.

Clutch kaput but also gearbox kaput... buggeration...

New clutch is going to cost around 400€; second-hand gearbox around 500€ plus labour.. ouch!

The question I have to put to myself though is: "is it worth it?"

Buzzy, as I have mentioned, is 18 already - so from that point of view the answer is "no".

But, as I have also mentioned, he is a member of the family too - so does that mean a "yes"?

Did I complain down below that I was being called an old softie?

What to do, what to do...?
