A broken car & a test drive

Sign in to follow this  


So, my driving school had a almost three week long brake and the day I was supposed to have my first lesson after that break my instructor called and said that the car is broken. Well, so on Monday I will have my next lesson, a week later than planned. 

We are now nearing the end of it I guess. There are two exam dates in September, but I don't think we will be able to pick on of them due to the week lost due the broken car. And also I want to go on in the same, slower, way like I did so far. Never change what works. So maybe in October. 

I have time, also because I have no car. The market for small automatic cars is pretty small right now. Apparently they are very sought after. Current planned car is a Honda Jazz/Fit. We want to do a test drive in one this weekend. The car dealer said that it is not clear if they have a car available so we'll see if that works out. Because they have no problems in selling their cars, they seem not to car too much about test drives and all of that. If the CVT is good and the traffic sign recognition works I think the choice for the Jazz is made. If not we will have to look maybe into the Mazda 2. Or my original choice of a VW Polo. I do like the Japanese cars more because they have better stuff in them.

      Tommy and Kaylea Washburn are expecting a baby in mid August.

      Ken's comment on the Hungarian tax story. I wonder if he and Lori will debate this later lol. I saw that Lori liked comments from people who wished that incentive existed in the US. 



      Ken Alexander That would certainly get couples to have more babies, although I can't agree with no income tax just for having a hundred special blessings of a large family.

      There must be a lot of really fat Remnant dogs.

      I honestly imagine a bunch of RF dogs like small breed yappie little things with giant white bows stuck on their head and a hug belly that drags on the ground.

      Very interesting. How can you tell it's a maternity top? I thought Rachel was pregnant back in November (turns out she was) because the shirt she was wearing on the plane to Georgia had a front pleat. Are there any other indications to look out for?

      Also from that photo, Martha is so tall! Campbell's face also looks a little fuller than usual. Time will tell.

      Campbell posted on V-day some stories wearing a black sweater and she seemed to have a noticeable bump. I'm a little blind so maybe l'm wrong... Anyone else saw it?

      My American expat group on facebook has a post at least once every six months of someone asking "where can I have my son circumcised, I cannot believe the NHS won't pay for it and the hospital won't let me just pay for it".

      For real? That's hilarious. Why would NHS pay for it? I'll go ask the NHS to pay for my boob job or my ear piercing.
