Ahem... You drove a 'vette in high school!?!? Is that when Ms. Chuck fell for you?
Woodchuck said…
No, even with a vette she would not have talked too me in High School. As a point the vette would have just made it worse. I was all about cars, football, and cheerleaders. Well, she would have looked at that as "three strikes, your out" type of thing.
WickedHamster said…
Hmmmm... She didn't end up duct-taped to a flagpole at one point, did she???
Woodchuck said…
I didn't know Ms Chuck then, however she would have been a prime candidate.
WickedHamster said…
Great to see you like your new title!

With this post we give away our ages. :)

I drove a 1982 Datsun 210 Sport until I went babysitting one night and returned to find a Cadillac in our driveway. My Dad had sold my car to use the money to put down a payment towards a new Cadillac for himself.

And I'm not even mentioning what I drove to HS now! Oh, wait! It was public transportation!

1965 Ford F-100 pick-up truck (in the mid 1970's.) It was quite hideous, faded to pink, three speed manual, the smallest 6 cylander that Ford made. It was followed by a series of Oldsmobiles, a VW Rabbit Diesel, LeCar, a couple of Toypta Corrolas, a Civic, a Mazda wagon, three Accords (all new and all bought within a four year period of time,) a Saturn, and soon to be followed by a ?????? (I think a Cadillac that is part of an estate, several years old with only 11,000 miles on it)

Favorite car, probably WH's little tyrant mobile.

Awww! He says the sweetest things about my cute little Imperial Hamster Coach!

Hey Meritt,
Just for the record, I was not...NOT 16 in 1953. I was asked to leave High School...ok, graduated in 1982. Which was prior to Ms. Woodchuck matriculation
Me said…
(woodchuck says that QUITE LOUDLY so to be sure I hear....)

Imperial Hamster Coach? Bah ha ha.

A cute little red Mercedes coupe, just right for little hamster paws.

Dude, those are all so much cooler than my Chevy Cavalier that I drove to high school.

It was blue and sounded like a tin can when you slammed...I mean shut the door.

Come to think of it, I don't mean to be telling horror stories here, but one time I had a friend who had a woodchuck living under the hood of his car...I can't remember if the little guy was OK, but I think he did get injured somehow.

I really need to lay off the hard mind is growing feeble.

I got the bus to school.

I got my first car (used, from my brother) when I was in my early 30's. It got stolen from outside our flat soon after. I got my second car (used, from Someone's brother) a few years later. We crashed it soon after.

We hire cars now.

On the road again.

Since taking a new position this spring, I have enjoyed the lack of travel that came with the change flow of life. However, all good things seem short lived as I must now start traveling again on a somewhat regular basis's. The travel will be one to two nights a week during the summer months and then I can go back to less travel come the winter months when sales slow down and customers don't want to see me as much. And due to the lack of a computer to travel with, up loading pictures will come at less regular intervals for present time. And just for the record...I flipp'in snowed on me Wednesday....Snow in June. I have pictures to prove it. Stay tuned.

On the topic of kids

And we are obviously buying less and conscious of all our choices - escaping the consumerism of elaborate do-it-yourself decor and prepared cuisine, the soccer mom mystique, and the bored, lazy, 'gimme' kids. Sometimes a quote comes along that really fits the way you think and live. This is one of those quotes, and the best part is that it comes from my DW. When you spoil you kids with love and a learning environment, no problem. I do believe that some parents do really take care of their kids and teach them to be strong non-whining adults that work to support themselves and intern teach the next generation to do the same. Then there is the rest of the parents that are raising whining think that they deserve everything but don't want to work for it spoiled brats that will complain about the government full time, but are the first ones there with their hands out and still think the should get more.... assbites! Then again some people complain about the way we raise our k
