“Is it broken?”

While at home this weekend, Bridget and I went for a ride in my Dad’s hot rod. About halfway back to the house I tried to shift into fourth gear. I ended up being in neutral so I put it back into third. That’s when this happened. Luckily I did make it into third gear and was able to get the car home. The gear shift broke below the floor right at the junction in the gearbox. Dad wasn’t impressed. Luckily, he said he will most likely get a new stainless steel one made. I was just mortified. I’m happy that my dad is an understanding guy. It was only 10 lashes with the bamboo rod this time. 10 years ago it would’ve been 30.

    I would have totally blamed that on Neil! It would be such a believable story. Glad you didn’t get killed for it though.

    Dad instant messaged me yesterday and said that he had fixed it already. Apparently John Morningstar made him a new (stronger) gearshift and dad was able to replace it already. Sheesh.

    In the future, please come visit me when you come to Saxton, and please bring your hedge clippers to remove the patch of hair growing from the right side of Tracey’s husband’s skull. By the way, we are going to visit Brad and Melissa over Memorial Day weekend— Do you want me to have Brad draw up any blue-prints of pre-historic midget colonies while I am there?
