I taught 2 on a stick shift. It’s not something you do if you have a bad heart. 🙂
I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!
How kind–thank you! I am a humor writer–four books so far, one in the works. Fan page, blog, and twitter account are required by my publisher, and I’m not keeping up with that as well as I should. Try one of my books as a download, Amazon, or at your favorite bookseller! Happy reading!
