Ozcarz Can Do it All

Yesterday Wallene got caught up at the pool during a thunderstorm.  She was a able to go inside the General Store to wait it out, but that took quite a while.

When the thunder finally let up Wallene texted me that she was going to ride her bike home. Problem was it was still raining and I could sense that perhaps the thunder hadn't quite stopped.

She knew since I didn't have the van that I was unable to pick her up, but as I am wont to do I didn't really want her biking the two miles back home in the rain.

I met her half way from home and told her we would leave her bike in the neighborhood gazebo and Daddy could get it when he came home.

Then I thought better of it.

I would like to think no one would steal her bike, but we live in such a sparsely populated neighborhood inside a resort community I wasn't too sure about the vacationers maybe thinking it was a free bike to "borrow".

So I popped the hatch, laid down the seats as best I could, put a towel over the bumper and. . .

Now Ozcarz thinks he is all bad azz. 
And also that he is now a cargo van. ::grinning::

Wallene didn't want me to lift the bike in there, but I told her better me than her if my new car was going to get scratched I would have to do it.

Don't ask me how I did it, but I love my daughter [and my car] too much to let anything happen to them. [Yes, I love Wallene a whole lot more. But you have to admit, Ozcarz is kinda cute.]

Since it was raining again this morning [Surprised? me too. natch.] Steven left me the van.

Wallene can put her own bike in Murphy.

Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday. Only one more day until the weekend! Woohoo!

See ya' on the flipside Tadpoles. xo Janine

Hey, lifting a bike into a vehicle is something I would have a difficult time doing when I'm at my best. You done good, kid.

Ozcarz: the little engine that could. Kinda like the driver.

But seriously? It's hard to be badazz in that shade of green. At least not without wearing torn purple pants.

Good job! I've squeezed bikes into some small spaces - but not that small! And usually, I'd have to remove the front wheel to do it.

Talk about a Can-Do attitude. When it comes to your family, you're like Wonder Woman. I reckon Oscar is your invisible airplane. Only he's visible. And a car. Take care, kiddo. 12:34
