Lose One, Gain One

When we lose one blessing, another is often, most unexpectedly, given in its place.

From the time I was 16 and drove a 1948 Chevy pickup with a deluxe cab, that was geared down for towing and had the most delightful wrap-around windows, I have always owned a clutch. Always. I am a type A control freak that needed the control of a clutch. Now I am much older, 51 if you can believe blogger (I think they must have miscalculated). This baby is an automatic. Losing my clutch is the most recent battle that MS has won. I am turning this loss into a gain, who needs a little red sports car when you can drive a big, beautiful, black beast?

I finished the reading mitts, I just need to get a good picture. I have started 5 year old socks, but left them in Penny's car after an appointment last Friday. I have one remaining UFO besides the socks.....I could be free to start a new project soon....soon....

Thanks for stopping by. Take care and God bless.

Congratulatons on the big beautiful black beast! I imagine it will take some getting used to with an automatic since you're so used to driving a stick. Your type A personality will relax in comfort now while sitting in start/stop traffic.

NIce!!! I too love a clutch. Learned to drive on one. Miss it sometimes. Our mini van has what I call the wanna be shift. Non clutch shifting. So not the same.

Enjoy that Jeep!!

Congratulations on your new truck! I also loved driving a car with a clutch and miss it. I have a Rav4 now which I like, but it is an automatic (boooo!) Enjoy!
