We had planned to keep our beloved 1997 station wagon. Then something happened. On the way home from picking up a small, new SUV, its air conditioning stopped. Its temperature soared and the needle on its temperature gauge flew past "H. " The towing company took it to our trusted, longtime mechanics, Tony and Steve, who said repairs would cost about $3,000. As much as we loved that little white wagon, we could not indulge in that repair after we had just bought a new car. On April 23, we bid the wagon adieu.

Just last week, I climbed out on a limb to announce that "Homeland" was officially out of the woods and back on the safe side of the proverbial shark. Then this week happened. By the end of episode nine, I felt like Dana crying in her motel room: “Just promise me I'll never have to see you again…” Episode nine finally gave viewers the moment that this entire season has been building toward: the reunion of Carrie and Brody. And I have to admit that pretty-much everything about this episode was terrible.

WEDNESDAY morning, at 9: 32, a big event in my life took place. The odometer on our 1993 station wagon hit 100,000 miles. It happened on the Beltway, on the inner loop, as I passed the Charles Street exit. One minute the digits on the odometer read 99,999. A short distance later they read 100,000. It was thrilling. I felt both a sense of accomplishment -- the car and I had survived the last seven years together -- and a sense of renewal. All those zeros signaled a clean slate on the road ahead.

Tooling around the Beltway last Saturday, I had the strange sensation of being fashionable. I was driving a station wagon, the vehicle type that trend spotters say is making a comeback. At auto shows from Detroit to the one in Baltimore this weekend, wagons from BMW, Audi, Volvo, Subaru, Saab, Mercedes-Benz, Dodge and Chrysler have been drawing crowds. Automotive writers at Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Road & Track have recently penned pieces that proclaim, in the words of a Road & Track scribe, that "high-powered horsepower wagons are back and badder than ever."

One of the first pick-ups postal clerk Edwin Shriver had on the inaugural day of Carroll County's Rural Free Delivery service was a greased pig. It was Dec. 20, 1899, and the beginning of the nation's first countywide free rural postal delivery service. "I'm sure he [the customer] did it as a joke," Shriver said in a newspaper interview afterward. "But I slapped a 42-cent stamp on its rump and delivered it. That pig squealed the whole way." The original mail wagon was invented and designed by Shriver, who is called the father of Rural Free Delivery.

One of the most popular topics for legislators today is restricting gun ownership in some form or fashion ("Guns: Old issue, new hurdles," Feb. 10). They have labeled some firearms as "assault" weapons and likened them to those used by the military. I spent 23 years in the U. S. Marine Corps, and I have never heard the term assault weapon used there. The fact is, the word "assault" is not an adjective. Second, only people who don't understand firearms believe that a gun purchased from a local firearms dealer has the same capability as those used by our military or police.

James B. Cooper, a lifelong arabber turned stable manager and wagon builder, died April 1 of lung cancer at his West Baltimore home. He was 76. "He is a wonderful and colorful character and is among the last of the arraber wagon builders and restorers," said Elaine Eff, veteran state folklorist, who is co-director of the Maryland State Arts Council's Maryland Traditions. "Mr. Cooper lived and loved the streets of Baltimore. He would show up unannounced at the Arts Council — his eyes sparkling, an impish smile — just to tell us that he had discovered a lumber supplier on Pulaski Highway plastered with historic arraber photographs," said Dr. Eff, who is also folklorist-in-residence at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

A fiery, late-night accident in Lutherville left a man dead after his Volvo station wagon left the road at high speed, crashed and burst into flames, Baltimore County police said Friday. The car was registered to a 45-year-old Phoenix man, but police were awaiting a positive identification of his remains from dental records that were being provided to the medical examiner's office in Baltimore. Lt. Robert McCullough, a spokesman for the Baltimore County police, said the 2007 Volvo XC70 was traveling rapidly northward on Dulaney Valley Road after midnight when it "failed to negotiate a curve" near Pot Spring Road and struck three boulders, a road sign and then a tree.
