Happy Mother's Day!/Updated List 5/5/10

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's out there! I'm a Mom of three beautiful girls! One in collage, one in high school and one in junior high. When you put it like that, I feel old!

I have to give you an update on Harold! After to many months of fighting bureaucracy, Harold is now legal! He is registered and has a title. Dan's been driving around the neighborhood practicing his shifting skills. This is no normal shifting automobile. Most cars have a syncromesh transmission, but not this baby! I actually tried driving Harold this weekend, but never made it out of 1st gear!

The day we got the paperwork making it legal, we took it a cruise-in about 1 1/2 miles from the house. Harold ran like a champ! One of our friends follow us home since it was after dark and Dan's never driven it after dark. He said we were going about 30 mph. The owner's manual says you should drive the car at around 15 mph and not speed by taking it up to 30-35 mph.

The next night we were a little more ambitious and took Harold to the first car show of the year at one of our favorite car shows. This was about 3 miles from the house. Harold took 2nd place!

Just put up a new list yesterday. After the story in the local newspaper last month, we've gotten some really good tapes in from folks who have just dropped them off or we've purchased. We've also got a few sales going on so stop by and take a look -

Have a wonderful weekend!
