Our local driver's ed school was set up by a man whose teen-age daughter had been killed in a car accident.

It was quite professional--the instructors were college-aged and could connect with the kids quite well, I thought, and the class, in addition to the usual lectures and on-street driving, had a course (set up differently each day) with all kinds of narrow twisty turns, parallel parking, sudden light changes and pedestrians (fake) who would pop out at you suddenly. On the last day, the kid took his parent around the course alone to show what he had learned.

We waited our turn as we watched each student maneuver the course at a careful, slow, safe pace--a lot of them hit a traffic cone or two, but they all acquitted themselves well, I thought. When our turn came, my son took me around at full race-car (I probably exaggerate--slightly--here) speed, and I had to hang on the grab bar** above the window as he swerved around each obstacle and skidded his way around the curves.

When we were done, the business owner came over to the driver's side window, leaned his head in, raised an eye-brow and said, "Well, what did you think?" All I could do was kinda nod my head (a bit weakly). Oddly enough, my son doesn't really like to drive much, and manages to get me behind the steering wheel if we go somewhere together.

**I looked up the name of that bar on Quora. Suggested names were "the Chicken Handle", the "Mom Over-exaggerating Bar", the "Jesus! Handle", or the "Oh **** Bar" (the "Oh Sh*t Bar"---DT starred the full version of that word out; I didn't). Yup.
Pretty hilarious story-reminds me of teaching two of my three stepdaughters to drive. The middle one was easy--we went out into one of the big empty parking lots early in the morning (Marina Del Rey, California) and she learned on my 1969 VW bug--stick shift was obligatory since both of the family cars were stick. After a couple of weeks she was pretty competent so when she turned 15.5 we went and got her a learners permit and started driving streets in the early hours of the morning when there wasn't a ton of traffic. By that fall when her older sister (who had been living in Seattle with their mother) joined us it turned out she didn't have a drivers license--although she had taken the Washington State drivers course required of kids in order to get a license there.

Why didn't she get a license? Just as easy to take buses or catch rides with friends. We pointed out that was Seattle and this was Los Angeles. But she tried it her way for one semester and by that time she was sick of 2+ hours one way commutes to school and wanted a license. Her father opted to see if she was competent--well, basically No and Hell No!--he came in after 2 weeks of working with her in my VW--"Your turn..." he said.

I spent weeks in the big parking lot--cringing and yelling " Let up on the gas and put the clutch in when you are trying to change gears!!!" Eventually she reached a point where her father took over again and finally pronounced her ready to take the test.

She did and to our amazement, actually passed on the first try--but it was years before she really drove as if she knew how. She crumpled a back fender on the VW because she didn't notice a protective post in front of a entrance to a grocery store. And ultimately forgot to take the keys out of if when she was running late to class one morning and the car was no longer in the parking place when she tried to leave--VW's had a reputation of being the most stolen vehicle in Los Angeles county--makes it even easier if the driver leaves the keys for the thief.

For the record--her younger sister applied for a license the week she turned 16 and passed--managed to drive either car without wrinkling fenders or leaving keys in the ignition.

But I had nightmares about Anne's driving for years after spending all those weeks in the parking lots with her...

You were really close on the "mucking out"--it's usually called mucking out stalls though--not barns.

Out of three teenagers that I had for most of their teens only one of them was capable of setting an alarm and getting up on her own--the oldest and youngest were beyond belief when it came to sleeping through alarms and multiple announcements of how late it was getting. And as for weeding anything--it wasn't even safe to have them pull weeds that grew between the bricks on a patio or the ones that in the expansion joints of the cement driveway--and they didn't even have to identify what was a weed in those two places--anything growing in them was automatically a weed.

But they all provided their own brand of entertainment--like the dogs and cats who were also a lot of work but kept life interesting.

I guess it depends on whether you're talking horses or cattle, though I guess with cows you're usually using heavy equipment there's no way you'd let the kids behind the wheel of.

Ma?

You up?

Can you google that for me?
Denny,

It was Cheryl Gates (the breeder of Ch Soquel's Distant Thunder) and I can't remember what her screen name was here, who had a donkey--actually I think she had more than one and replaced them as they passed on.

And many years ago a friend of mine got a donkey to keep her horse company. If you have adequet pasture you would not generally need to feed a donkey. I don't know of anyone who owned a donkey who grained them. Hay if the winter or late summer pasture didn't have enough grass to maintain a donkey but they'll graze on stuff that horses won't touch.

And are easier keepers--but then almost anything is an easier keeper than a horse.

Might be some good Tips here, for someone....


Chief negotiators PapaBear & BabyBear took only 1.5 hours, to buy his Lexus RX350 3.5 years ago // Dad played bad cop & son played good cop (for the most part), while our energy fueled each other, for a NET Discount of 13.3% MRSP (on a brand new SUV).
- going into the buy, Dad even hand picked the young salesman out
- and threw the 4 SQ Method, out the window // controlling the whole process
- Larry was on a natural rush, for 48 hours straight...making it a Fun & Buyer Controlled process, start to finish
Ha - needed you guys for our negotiation! Actually we did pretty good My wife is a good negotiator!

Happy Birthday Kelly! Sounds like good vittles tonight!!!!

Thk's everyone for Kelly best wishes, today !!
For Breakfast - big baby Tunna & Vet kibble (Royal Canine 20% Low protein).
For Supper - fried hamburger with assorted veggies & shredded cheddar cheese.

Negotiations - I mastered the skill, and flipped my first '48 Dodge Fargo Van, in Grade12.
A 6 day quick sale (on front lawn, of family farm), I made enough profit to pay for 1 semester of free College.
I quickly became a "master" of the buy or sell process, as I learned to buy smart and enjoyed the complexity of the haggle process.

Two hugely successful salesmen thought they were best in field, and became Beau's close friends.
- so we would exchange stories, for fun / soon I was training them, and they just shake their heads...what I did over the decades, selling for top $$
- and Andrew has heard all the Dad old stories, over his life...and they rubbed off on him
- BabyBear is out of my league now, selling to Fortune 500 company's and the like
- but he also has the natural gift to craft a sale, is poised & thinks quick on his feet

modm - hang on that good Mrs. of yours...she will $ave you much.

She crumpled a back fender on the VW because she didn't notice a protective post in front of a entrance to a grocery store. And ultimately forgot to take the keys out of if when she was running late to class one morning and the car was no longer in the parking place when she tried to leave--VW's had a reputation of being the most stolen vehicle in Los Angeles county--makes it even easier if the driver leaves the keys for the thief.

For the record--her younger sister applied for a license the week she turned 16 and passed--managed to drive either car without wrinkling fenders or leaving keys in the ignition.

But I had nightmares about Anne's driving for years after spending all those weeks in the parking lots with her...

Great recap & fun read ABTLH ^^

MrsBeau and Larry would take motorcycle drive-ed for fun, back in the late 1970's.
- $75 over 4 Saturday mornings, and brand new Honda 100 & 125 cc bikes included
- it was a blast and wife quickly learned to use a hand clutch

Fast forward 6 months - Beau had sheet metal rust repaired a 1974 Datsun B210 & painted whole car, in farm garage.
- so take Nancy around the block, and on 2nd trip she was understanding the clutch & floor gear shift, real good...only 5 minutes, behind the wheel
- a day later, she had the manual trans car mastered

Son Andrew was a fast driver and slow to brake...so first 2 days, Dad was getting a sore throat, yelling at him.
- eventually he did what I asked of him, so dad would shut the hell up

Larry grew up on a farm with tractors, go-cart & Ski-Doos.
- when I turned 16, I passed my written exam
- 1 week later, Beau aced his drivers test

Might be some good Tips here, for someone....

How Car Dealerships Rip You Off (The Truth)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gtmij_uNuE

In this video I explain exactly how car dealerships rip you off. A lot of car dealerships implement the four square method, which is just a simple way to make you think that you're getting a deal.

Car dealerships are a very sophisticated network of stores that know how to separate you from your money. Not all dealerships rip you off, but the ones that use the four square method do.

Don't get ripped off on your next car purchase and watch this video until the end.

4 SQUARE - Dealer$hip Method
- Price << out the door price, is the only quadrant to Focus on
[went with the 3.9% Lexus financing // beats the banks & credit unions, car loans]
- Trade In << Part to Skip, sell used auto privately...for $5,000 more
- Down Payment << not necessary, with a good credit rating
- Monthly Payment (60-72-84 months) << anything a 4 year term, is buying beyond ones means

None of the dealerships I dealt with used the 4 square method....they used the all-the-numbers-mixed-up-in-a-single-column-so-I-couldn't-tell-what-was-going-on method. Equally effective.

Marko, I agree with everything you say here- I spent a year at a dealership and saw this too. However, I studied Advertising in my business degree and learned this process is all about EMOTION. If you go to buy a car and you are emotionally invested, all these tricks from the dealer will work on you. My #1 rule in buying cars is to be ready to WALK no matter what they do. EMOTIONS= EASY SALE

===========================

Chief negotiators PapaBear & BabyBear took only 1.5 hours, to buy his Lexus RX350 3.5 years ago // Dad played bad cop & son played good cop (for the most part), while our energy fueled each other, for a NET Discount of 13.3% MRSP (on a brand new SUV).
- going into the buy, Dad even hand picked the young salesman out
- and threw the 4 SQ Method, out the window // controlling the whole process
- Larry was on a natural rush, for 48 hours straight...making it a Fun & Buyer Controlled process, start to finish

Very Nice Post, Beau!

My company does not play that way, except for some rogue retail stores. We especially don't work that way in the department I work in. We do more online sales. Can't sell a warranty to Hyundai buyers, for example. We are selling them sometimes at 10,000 miles.

People who believe in warranties buy them, I am one of them.

People who insist on relying on the manufacturer warranty, might or might not be disappointed.

It's a crap shoot with me.

I am not going to push anyone to buy a warranty.

I would rather make a 40 or 50 dollar sale on the financing. I love to beat credit unions, just to prove a point!

I have warranty training coming up, with the actual warranty company. I'm going to send him that video, just so he knows what we in the Corporate office is fighting.

I quickly became a "master" of the buy or sell process, as I learned to buy smart and enjoyed the complexity of the haggle process.

Two hugely successful salesmen thought they were best in field, and became Beau's close friends.
- so we would exchange stories, for fun / soon I was training them, and they just shake their heads...what I did over the decades, selling for top $$
- and Andrew has heard all the Dad old stories, over his life...and they rubbed off on him
- BabyBear is out of my league now, selling to Fortune 500 company's and the like
- but he also has the natural gift to craft a sale, is poised & thinks quick on his feet

modm - hang on that good Mrs. of yours...she will $ave you much.



Thks MEL - I just LOVE Harold-Dog/Dog...2Funny !!



Kelly paw boo-boo is slowly improving, by the day.
Thks for the birthday wish .

LDi - My word document on RubyRed screwed up on last 2 pages / few photos & text, over-lapping...something you can fix ?
- import error, I could not fix
Sounds like a great Birthday dinner!

Plan to keep her! She just had a birthday herself yesterday. I had a floral arrangement sent to an engagement she was participating in. The delivery was perfect. All the other ladies were wishing her Happy Birthday!!! So she was somewhat the center of attention - as I was hoping for

Thats great LDi - I opened up a few extra emails to import the RubyRed Word document & everytime, last 2 pages got messed up.
- happened to Mrs67 at word before, so I didn't know how to fix it

Kelly had her homemade meat-veggy stew & vet kibble...she follows mom in the spare room, when the cup of kibble is being dished out & follows her back into the kitchen, for num-nums...a routine & exciting time, for her.
- and 2 half's of a Liver Snap, as an after Dinner mint
- to top her breakfast meal off

Today Beau picking out color of steel siding, to finish garage build...commercial sectional doors, installed last week...now on the finishing "home stretch".
- dad has an awesome homemade wrap, for Lunch / on a whole wheat Tortillas
- and Kel will get last bite or 2

SP, I have had a couple of donkeys!
I used to have a small herd of goats that i kept for my enjoyment and to keep a pasture clean. It worked out great for a period of time until things started to develop around my property. Coyotes!!!!! I got my first donkey as a companion to the goats but he developed some hatred toward the females and found him a home with one of the Horse Farms as companion for a horse.

The last one was not mine but rented out a pasture to a girl who pretty much abandoned him. He stayed on the property for a few years and was cared for by some locals until they found a rescue to take him. He was a large ,old guy with several health issues.

I liked the donkeys very much , they were both great guard animals for the property especially at night and would wail at anything or anyone , to some this would be annoying but i do not sleep on the property. I don't miss any of the animals since i was developing a bit of anxiety of coming to work in the morning and finding a dead one.
I just bush hog the pasture a few times a year now and some times allow a political sign.

Boy, you are right about that--I was definitely thinking horses--cattle barns of any sort aren't the kind of thing you clean up with a fork or a shovel. And dairy barns--which usually get "mucked" out twice a day (after milking) even with that are a giant mess. Makes horses seem neat.
