It's true! I'm good looking again!
Today, I washed the SL (a subtle reminder that it needs a paint job) and took it out on errands for the first time...2009.

People were looking at me and smiling and pointing and some young boys yelled at me to beep the horn!
Beep! Beep!
It was fantastic!

I am really glad that people want to live up there because we are really over-run with those who don't. I just can't imagine why people do like it. I know many say they can't take the heat, but you learn to adapt. But having your nose freeze to go get the mail is abit much for me. besides sweating is very good for you...............In the south you can live better poor than in the north with money,, Really !!!

Hey, a bit farther south you can sleep naked under the palm trees and live on coconuts.
Each to his own.

My middle daughter is being subtly picked on by some "cool" girls at school.
She's out going, cute and an honour student. Everyone loves Nobster.
Soooo.....Nobette decided that she would pick Nobster up in the Benz today, just to, well, whatever that's supposed to accomplish.
It went well, apparently.
But the vision of Nobette driving the Benz was breath taking.
The car was meant for her.
Even though she called me from the school yard to ask where the reverse gear was.
No....it's not like the VW.

You are a man with nerves of steel...

I have never let my wife drive the SL. Of course she hasn't asked. :argue:

We are partners.
We are, where we are, in life, because of us. (That's US...not United States)
It's my car.
But half hers.
Apparently, only the half that goes forward.
