I'm Driving! :D

I retouched this in GIMP.
The AWESOME FACE - appropriately expressing my feelings.
The story behind the top pic is this - YEARS (like, lots o' years) ago, Grandma R said, "Oh man Nick, you're getting old fast! Someday - someday, you're going to walk over to me and wave the keys and your permit and say, 'Grandma, wanna go for a ride?'!" (This was before they moved to TN) So I had to send her this pic. Well, they're coming up in November and I'm sure I'll take Grandma for a ride. :D

A note to all my readers: No, I'm not upset with you or the interwebs - I've just been busy. I am replying to your comments even now. Keep 'em coming! :D

      I did forget one minor detail.
      The hedgehog incident occurred right next to a garden centre that used to be called Hedgehogs. Now it's called Hedgehog because there's only one left.

    Oh dear... both you and Theron? It seems that neither side of the Atlantic is safe any more!

    Well, at least not for hedgehogs. And I'm sort of a hedgehog, but that's rather a long story.

    Maybe I should just move to Antarctica. That ought to be safe from all these learner drivers.

    1. I want to because I want a truck like that, but we don't have a vehicle with standard. :'( Mom doesn't like manual transmissions, so...
      Unless I get a truck with manual / standard then I guess not. I guess that's the long way around to say "hopefully, YES!!" :D
