Finally it rained–a gentle rain most of the morning and for a little while into the afternoon. Yay! How nice that was. I hope it happies up my yard.
The automobile affectionately known as Little White has come back to live at our house! Little White was sold to us by good friends from CCC for a generously nominal cost years ago and was a true blessing to us at that time. After several years usage, we had a little financial windfall and purchased my current car, “Puffy” (short for puffy sleeves, as in Matthew’s gift of a frivolous puffy-sleeved dress to Anne Shirley) . We passed Little White along to another family at church who could put it to good use as an available vehicle for the young drivers coming up in their family.
And now it is back, a perfect car for our last young’un. Still serviceable and 170,000 miles young. (Meanwhile “Puffy” has been something of a lemon, but it’s hard for me to admit that.)
The young man in question is delighted to suddenly have his first car! He drove it to baseball practice over in Mayfield, which turned out to have been canceled–but he didn’t seem to mind that–and then drove over to his friend Jason’s house who also lives quite a ways away–to play catch for awhile. These steps to growing up are so exciting!
