I'm old & now I'm in danger....


Tonight I went on the first drive with Patrick behind the wheel.... He is fifteen and the proud owner of a new learners permit...

We drove up the road to Hopson's and back a few times so he could get used to handling the car. He did good. He is used to driving the Kawasaki mule, which is a bit more difficult to handle than a car, so he should do fine.


As you can see he has had a few mishaps with the mule... but under threat of death he has done well since then.

The passing of time is doing exactly as my father told me it would. "When you are a kid it stands still and you can't wait for things that never seem to get there... As you get older it perks up and takes off, leaving you wondering what in the hell happened."

It seems like it was just yesterday that I was getting my license, afraid of everything and nervous about what was coming around the next curve. Now I'm much older and afraid of everything...

Scary, I know. I sure scared my parents when I got mine as I was the first, and I'm sure I'll be just as scared when that day comes for me.

Just me... said...

You worried your parents, they worried their parents and so on and so on and so on..
Cycle of life babe.. Cycle of life.. :):)
