Default Officially dangerous!

OK, my Keith is now officially dangerous - he got his driving learners permit.

So we'll begin the learning to drive process - on the RIGHT side!

Keep tuned for the divorce announcement.....

If he's never driven on the left it makes no difference - at least I didn't feel like it did!

And note to self - avoid Tracy's hood this weekend!

lol now you don't wanna come out and visit us and take a nice relaxing DRIVE for some fish and chips or something?

He's driven some on the left, unfortunately. Just enough to pick up the wrong stuff he says.

When did you have to learn to drive before they gave you a licence here? I guess that's just an Illinois thing...

Oh crap! I'm going to be Chicago in a couple of weeks I'd better watch out...

Nah, I'm not the outdoor sort, I'm afraid!

We did have about 12 deer in our back yard the other week - just after the snow melted. Would have been an easy target through the kitchen window

Luckily I can walk to Kohls.
I'm thinking twice about whether to drive out to Long Grove now - although the lure of the Flakes is probably going to win!
I might just have to come out to CL for my fish and chips now that Flatlanders has wiped them off the menu.

Long Grove is ok - really a tourist thingy. We have flakes out in CL by the way - Keith says World Market he thinks, plus there's this little Irish deli in Barrington that has a bunch of UK foods. I actually think they might have more selection than the Long Grove stores, so I don't quite remember.

PM me if you'd like to come out for the Fish & Chips - we'd be happy to go out to dinner if you'd like (and shopping's fine too ).
