Update on my Pa. He has got himself a new set of wheels! Yeah. I know you all know he had a cool car and all, but I am talkin' 'bout a motorised scooter! This is much safer for him and gives him independance that I think he thought he would not ever see again. He got a reconditioned one off of this guy that.. reconditions motorised scooters. The guy had two of them, so Pa reports to me. One was caught up in the floods at Rochester and had to be fully re-coed, and the other one was involved in a car accident (*shudders at that thought right there!). He purchased the former one. He requested the guy paint racing stripes on the sides and he wants my Uncle to buy him a fox tail to fly above him to alert any pedestrians.. oh, and when I last spoke to him on the phone he said " Listen Carolyn.. listen". So, I was listening and I hear this toot toot.. pip pip sound.. I say "Oh cool Pa.. now people will know you are coming up behind them on the footpath". He says, " Nope, that's pissy! It's a sheila's horn, I want one that makes a louder sound". I laughed my arse off at that!
