The first car I ever drove was a 1973 AMC Gremlin. It was a snowy Missouri day and my friend Doug and I were out cruising around. We were way back on a dirt road, snowy and icy when he decided to let me drive.
He said, “don’t use the brakes, you’ll skid if you use the brakes”.
So. I started driving, got going to a pretty good speed, then took my foot off the gas to slow down for a curve. Since it was a dirt road, the turn was really banked. As per instruction, I didn’t use the brakes
Well, I hit that curve pretty fast, and didn’t make the turn. I ended up airborne and landed in this snow filled cornfield. You could see where all four tires left the ground in the snow.
It didn’t hurt the car, because aeronautical race car driving is in my genes. We reversed out and headed on our way. Doug driving.
And that was the first time I ever drove a car. Another thing I remember, worth mentioning, is the first time I drove solo, after I got my license. But that was uneventful.
HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!!!
It was a very nice weekend. And it seemed pretty long too. Friday we went to the Island Air party.There were private jets you could go aboard. This one only costs 12 million!
I got a close up view of the helicopter that’s always hovering over our house.
There were boats and cars too, I posted the above picture on Instagram and Facebook, and got several comments that I should buy my wife that car, but we can’t even afford socks that match, so I guess we’ll have to wait.Saturday we went to the “soft opening” of the George Town Yacht Club. Really nice.
And SUnday, we relaxed and went to a Super Bowl Party in the evening. Baltimore Ravens won and it was a good game. It was outside though, and now I think I’m getting a cold. NO!
That’s all for NFL Football this year, and that’s all for my post today! Have a good week!
The Wife got her new car yesterday, quite nice spaceship car. Below are two pics.
WordPress was giving me some major problems this morning. I’m not getting into it.
Yesterday, I thought today was Friday. Today it still feels like Friday.
