Still can remember being on the lot when dad and mom bought this car, a darker chocolate brown.
It was as if it was chosen just for me, so thankful they included me on the jaunt. Actually, it’s the only family car I can recall driving in.
Dad never would let on, nor would I hear the word “can’t afford” and truly, I never ever felt “denied”. This would come later, much later when he died from cancer.
Dad taught me how to drive and Glenn, my HS sweetheart, sealed the deal. He took so much time teaching me and can still remember; “It’s like toothpaste, you have to squeeze the brakes”. Funny, and it was my husband who taught me how to shift a standard!
One needs to save gas you know, the reason one shifts, not necessarily the only way to be transported. Now motorcycles are a great way to get around. Ever drive a motorcycle? This is something you learn solo. It was probably the most exciting licensed learning, that and the helicopter. These were bucket list adventures even before seeing the movie in 2007.
Funny, today I own an economical Prius…sounds like a golf cart!! LOL
nevertheless, still legal and can drive anything if I have to. Just, my desires are different
Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.
