And some people don’t even have a clue what you’re talking about. 😳

There is a fine line between pushing it fast enough to have enough momentum to catch the engine versus pushing it so fast down the hill that you are unable to make the jump in, and the car ends up in the creek without you 😏

Or so I’ve been told....


It’s even more fun when you are wearing a dress and heels 👠! 🤣😱

 

The car never got away from me, but there were times when I had a hard time finding a hill to park on so I could push the car down it when it was time to go back home. Fortunately, my home driveway had a small hill, but I did have to dodge the house where the dining room bowed out into the driveway, and yes, the dining room was on the driver’s  side. I may have scraped the car door on the dining room wall a couple of times.....

Beetles were easy to push start

I was chatting with a German Army Colonel, and we were discussing how Americans love their guns and Germans love their speed.  He told me a little story:

 

A German was cruising at a very high rate of speed down the Autobahn when he lost control of his Porsche and wrapped it around a tree.  When paramedics arrived on the scene, he was standing next to the wreck saying:  "Oh my Porsche, Oh my Porsche, Oh my Porsche."  The paramedic walked up to him and said:  "Hey buddy, I wouldn't be worried about your Porsche -- can't you see you severed your left arm."  The German then started saying:  "Oh my Rolex, Oh my Rolex, Oh my Rolex."

It wasn’t a Beetle, but you were close. It was a VW Dasher. It was a good car until my ex tried to drive it through a flooded underpass. That didn’t go so well, and the car was never quite the same after that. In spite of all of the Dasher’s lingering problems, I got rid of the ex and kept the car..

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHOM TO MARRY?
 
(1) You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
-- Alan, age 10
 
(2) No person really decides before they grow up whom they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
-- Kristen, age 10
 
WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
 
(1) Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
-- Camille, age 10
 
(2) No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
-- Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age)
 
HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
 
(1) You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
-- Derrick, age 8
 
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
 
(1) Both don't want any more kids.
-- Lori, age 8
 
WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
 
(1) Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
-- Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure)
 
(2) On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
-- Martin, age 10
 
WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
 
(1) I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.
-- Craig, age 9
 
WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
 
(1) When they're rich.
-- Pam, age 7
 
(2) The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
- - Curt, age 7
 
(3 ) The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
- Howard, age 8
 
IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
 
(1 ) I don't know which is better, but I'll tell you one thing. I'm never going to have sex with my wife. I don't want to be all grossed out.
-- Theodore, age 8
 
(2 ) It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
-- Anita, age 9 (bless you child)
 
HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
 
(1 ) There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
-- Kelvin, age 8
 
 
And the #1 Favourite is........
 
HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
 
(1 ) Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.
-- Ricky, age 10

The problem with quotes from the Internet, is that you can never truly verify their authenticity.

-Abraham Lincoln

I follow Lincoln’s twitter feed. It took awhile, but I finally found where he posted this on February 23, 1865. 😳
