Daddy’s Red Wheels

Sara remembers:  “When I was in about the 10th grade, daddy bought a nice car, it was bigger than any car we ever had before.  It was a Buick, I think.  It was black and looked nice, so I thought “now we finally have a ride to school.”  After all, we had to walk about 2 miles to Messick.

BUT ..low and behold, he painted the wheel spokes RED.  I was so upset that I told daddy I could not ride in that car because all my friends would laugh.  All the rest of the kids seemed OK with it.  But not me!  I took off walking, and as daddy passed me he would smile, honk and wave. That was daddy!  He just enjoyed his car… and I walked!

Another thing happened with the car and daddy: Geneva had been riding with daddy and noticed a run in her hose,not panty hose, the old hose. (What’s up with nylons and Geneva?  Ha!  See previous post:  The Wedding Nylons)  So she pulled them down and threw them out the window.  Dad looked out and saw one was wrapped around the wheel, and they laughed all the way home. I would have been absolutely devastated, totally embarraced and definately NOT laughing!”

Old Skool Roadster Guess Nathan wasn’t the only person that liked red wheels…
