22 May 2009,
Well, the youngest Dub just got her Driver's Permit this week. She took 10 hours of classroom instructions this last week and Wednesday morning, my first day off I took her down to the DMV and she took her written test. Now one of the reasons we moved out to the "country" was because I wanted back roads my little girl could practice on. So when we had a straight run to go to and plenty of daylight and no traffic we let her practice driving. Up till Wednesday morning, she was always reluctant. Kiss that goodbye, I can't get her out of the driver's seat. Hee hee, wait till she gets her license, then I'll just send her to the store and I can stay home.
The entire family will have 3 days off this weekend and we have chosen to paint the outside of the house and the shed. If you were wondering what you could do this weekend, just give me a shout and I'll give you directions. If we get enough people, we can start digging post holes for the pipe fence.
With this being Memorial Day weekend, a local contest was offered to veterans for landscape work. Mrs Dub decided to enter me and had to write an essay. She told me last night she posted it on her blog.
Well, not much else to report at the moment, be safe and have a great day.

Better you, than me to teach her! Remember, I'm the "aggressive" driver and your the "laid back" one. I'm the very one that will say "honey, don't worry about driving the speed limit, if some jerk is tailgaiting you, just let him go around you" . . . and in the same breath I say "what the heck is this idiot in front of me doing -- get the @#$% out of the way!" All the while, MissDub is giving me this really strange look like I just contradicted myself. Whatever! I can just see it now, I will be flying through town one day and a car will pull out in front of me - I'll yell a few choice words and then realize it's my daughter (oops!) Guess I need to get some anger management classes started.

We haven't made any moves here for Amanda to get her license; maybe once she turns 17 this summer I'll give it some thought!

Happy Memorial Day weekend to you and yours. May it be a good one!

Remembering you this Memorial Day!!!
Thanks for your service and thanks to Mrs. Dub for all she went through keeping things going so you didn't have to worry about the "home-front."
Now, you'll really face combat behind the wheel with a teen! Yikes!
