Something Happened Today.

video
It's a big deal something too. Colby Brett aced his Driver's Permit Test and is now able to drive, with a capable adult in the passenger seat of course. He took his first 'big road drive' in the BRV. What better way to christen the lad then the pleasure of cruising in our family wagon.. Joke. He will remember the feel of driving the van for a long time. I still remember driving in my dad's big white van when I first got my own permit. My sweet mah sat in the passenger seat and patiently instructed me, but oh I so wanted to learn to drive her fire red jeep with the hard top, but no.. My parents sold it before giving me the chance ;(. It's okay, I've moved on to bigger, better, brighter things.. things like a van with a kicking diesel engine and let's not forget the suburban with the after market kick side something or other!! Ah, the pleasure of living large.. Oops, I'm sorry this post is about Colby. Enjoy the little clip. We are so proud of him!

jj, I was a wee bit scared as he drove us around town. A bit herky jerky behind the wheel.

Congrats Colby !!

Christie, your usual superb memory hit a snag. Don't you remember me taking you in the jeep to Spring Hill's parking lot teaching you to drive a standard transmission??
I remember drinked iced tea and wearing it while you worked on your clutch footwork !!!

CLR said...

Daddy, I'm so sorry for forgetting about my driving in the jeep. I honestly don't remember driving it, but I DO remember learning to drive a stick and I DO remember something about cold iced tea not landing in your mouth but your lap! :) I love you and thank you for patiently enduring the iced tea incident. If I remember correctly, you were laughing. XO
