and welcome to a funtabulous Road Trip ….

…and here is the story of da furst ride of the mama….

Somewhen in da crazy 80’s a miracle happened: the mama got her drivers licence…. and as that day really happened, the mama bugged and begged her dad to park his car next to da office where an insane guy actually handed out the pink sheet what could make all dreams of a teenager true.  The mama invited all her freaky friends for da maiden voyage in her daddy’s car and the ride was full with giggling teens who couldn’t wait to seal their fate with the mama behind the wheel. Sadly the nature and the plate tectonics were against her and therefore there was a hill between da drivers licence office and the road to nowhere freedom. the mama tried it 87 times to start the darned ride uphill but she always stalled the engine…. and after some hours the guys of that office came out to see what torturer is on the way to send an engine to da pink cadillac ranch… they all laughed and shaked with their heads and the mama got a head as red as a tomato… like her passengers who laughed gleeful at the poor girl who couldn’t move a car….  and there was no mice hole to hide for the poor mama in distress…

Fortunately a bus driver had mercy and he shooed the mama from the drivers seat and brought the car with the giggling freight to the top of that hill….the passengers of the mama swore a howly oath NOT to share that story and that meant  the story made it through the ears of all town-mates faster than a f*rt in da wind……and after being the jackass of da whole town and still not able to start uphill  the mama bought a 20 year old  audi 100 from da local firefighters…with automatic…

… what also oiled the streets automatically because the oil pan had more holes than the mama has shoes… and because the mama was not the owner of an oil well and because it  stinks to clean the streats with sand and a broomstick and also to have this stuff on board all the time, the mama swallowed the bitter pill, brought the 300-buck greaser to da car-wreckers and took lessons in gear boxing at her daddy… we skip da details but we can say that her dad got not only  his first gray hairs during that lessons, he became even a badl headed eagle… and  the curses of the mama would not even have room in  The Thickest Book Of The Universe what has a weight of 220 kilos…. and btw: it is a book about traffic safety education… how due, huh?  Butt the mama  learnt to start a car in all pawsitions without making the balk rings to ricochets… and till today the mama sticks with the stick… and she never ever would touch a slushbox… not even in a meow-serati…

…sooo I will cool my glowing paws now with some ice cream and a Meow-garita  and I wish you all a

    Gosh that was so exciting! Happy Birthday to Madi ,xx Speedy

  2. WOW… that’s quite a driving tail – I mean TALE – with a lot of excitement! Some things just don’t change do they…..even to this day your Mama still has a lot of “adventures” in that elephant skate of yours. I think Madi will love your story !

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. My mom had troubles getting up those hills in a Standard too, Phenny! Thank doG for automatic transmission!

  4. OhMyGOSH! I knew this was going to be good when it was the first ride of your Mama! I think your Mama and I should have stuck to horses! It was still a classy ride, I mean it WAS an Audi!

    I was blessed with a father who believed all his children should learn to drive with standard transmission cars, and my first three cars were all standard transmission cars. Of course, the fun of all that shifting wore out along with my knees, and the next five cars have been automatic transmission cars.

    My current one, a VW Golf Sportwagen, has paddle shifters on the steering wheel if you want to make lots of engine racket and watch your gas tank empty before your eyes by putting it in “sport” mode…. I just leave it in the auto mode and get enough pleasure knowing I will get up to 45 mpg/ 19.1 km/l (if the math was done right) by being a responsible citizen. Too bad I didn’t have this arrangement when I was young and stupid!

    In the UK we only had gear-change options when I was learning – automatics only came here in the 80s and they were ‘exotic’ cars with very many quidsters attached to them. The very first time I drove an automatic was in Australia (1991) when I hired a car from the city recycl’em charlatan… driving that was like driving a tank and I kept trying to change gear. Not a grand idea in an auto in heavy Sydney traffic. The brake doesn’t make a good clutch. Then that thing started to smoke – you had oil, I had fumes. Not just any fumes. Fumes that came INSIDE the cabin. So had to drive with all the windows down for the whole three days and even then I am sure I turned a peculiar shade of green… Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

    You mom always cracks us up!

  9. Brian says:

    That was a terrific story Phenny! Happy Birthday to sweet Madi from all of us!

  10. Phenny, Gail and I opened this post with some trepidation, and I think you will understand why…
    Toodle pip!

    My male peep loves sticks. The last time my female peep drove one of his vehicles, the wheels made a SQUAAAAAAWK worthy of a parrot and there was more smoke than a drug den. Since the top was down, they almost died with no oxygen. A policeman saw this, stopped them and told the male peep to drive the rest of the 500 meters/yards home.

  12. Charles Huss says:

    That is a great story. I’m sure your Mama was very eased that you shared it. 🙂

  13. The Gang at LLB says:

    Oh Phenny, our Mama is the same way with the shifts with sticks and stalled soooo many times on hills….she also refuses to drive one ever again! Such a great story for Madi’s Sweet 16 birthday!

  14. My first car was a stick. I learned on my mother’s automatic. I picked it up at the dealership and had to go up a hill to get home in pouring rain. I got stuck at a red light and cried and cried until it hopped through like a bucking horse. I learned fast! Now there is something very exhilarating about driving a stick skate.

  15. Jan K says:

    That is quite the story and I had a similar experience one of the first times I drove a stick. Lucky for me I didn’t have a car full of giggling girls, but I was by myself. I never really liked the stick, even though I drove one for years….now I drive nothing but automatics (without leaky oil pans, thankfully!!).

  16. MOL…what a story, Phenny, Madi will love it 😀 Granny’s third car was a Renault 4 with a stick in the dashboard and every time that she had to switch, she had the feeling that it was a gambling machine…ka-ching… Pawkisses for a Wonderful Day 🙂 ❤

  17. Too funny. I think I gave my examiner whiplash going through one gear after another. and because I took the driver test in a VW, he deducted points for freezing on a cold day.

  18. OMC Phenny!! Your Mama’s story was HILARIOUS! That had to be a manual transmission wasn’t it? You probably wonder why I am here, well I am here because I blogged about my driver’s story for Madi (and Dakota didn’t) so hoping you will visit my Mom’s post! Love, Cody

  19. Amy says:

    Mom laughed so hard, especially the part about the bus driver stopping to help da Mama. Well, at least when she learns something, she “sticks” with it! BOL!~Lucy

  20. Princess Leah says:

    Hehe, Da Penny, I was sooo excited waiting to read your tory, you peeps always had such wonderful adventures!
    Loves and licky kisses

  21. My mommy had to learn on both stick and automatic during driver ed at her high school. She prefers the stick and hates driving the automatic she has now. She says driving a stick shift keeps you more alert and aware of the road plus it’s just more fun! Great story. Yes, hills are hard to learn at first. But once you get it down it’s a great feeling of accomplishment. Luvz, Patzy

  22. The OP Pack says:

    BOL – great story, Phenny. Mom says it reminds her of when she was a very little girl and sat in the back seat while her poor Mom would try to get the car up the hill with a standard shift. They went backwards all the time:) So the Momster decided she would always drive an automatic transmission. No shifting and clutch for her.

    Happy Birthday to Madi!!!

  23. Idaho PugRanch says:

    Mom’s bug was a stick shift and for many years that was all she would drive. Then one time she had a rental car that was automatic and she decided that was kinda nice. So now she has automatic

  24. Memories of Eric and Flynn says:

    That was a funny story! In the UK stick shifts are more common than automatic. I have only driven an automatic once and it was a nightmare.

    • I’m with you… I’m the one who killed an automatic car because I tried to shift while driving… the car guy said he never saw such a thing before… I took it as a compliment ;O)))

  25. M. K. Clinton says:

    This brought back memories of me breaking into a sweat in our old VW Beetle anytime I had to stop at a red light on the slightest incline. I mastered to standard stick eventually but enjoy my automatic without sweating. BOL! BOL!

  26. 15andmeowing says:

    That was quite the ordeal, sorry I chuckled 🙂

  27. Ma learned on a stick too! The second time she drove it, she tried to start in second gear! (she thought she was in first…heheheee), and Gpa wouldn’t tell her what she was doing wrong…well, the joke was on him…she DID get it to start in second gear! BOL! Anyhu, she prefers a stick, butts she has an auto now…misses a stick fursure!
    Ruby ♥
    pees: your Moms has the bestest stories! BOL

  28. Your mom always has a funny story to tell. Our mom was lucky enough to learn to drive on an automatic but did learn to drive a stick shift when she met our dad.

  29. Happy belated birthday to madi

  30. Wow, that brought back some memories of the driving lessons from a friend of the petcretary…after she had her license in an automatic car, she wanted to learn that stick method…and after stalls and grumblings from the drivers behind her who would give her a push with their own bumpers to get her started…and lots of red faces and some bad words and likely ulcers in the friend’s belly, she did master it. And drove a stick for many years. But now the van she has only comes auto…no stick allowed. Oh well, she needed the room…it moves furniture to and from apartments of the unfurbros quite well…
    And then unfurbro-the-elder got himself a car with a stick…and he only got about 10 min of lessons from the dealer! BOL! Even after about 6 years it is sometimes still a rough going to get it from gear zero to fourth…Hmmm…

    It was fun traveling all around to help Madi have a great 16th Birthday! Whoo-hoo!
