Is P. Sandberg a Dr.?
My dream car!
The Peel P50!
‘The Peel range of 3-wheelers first appeared in 1962 at the London Motor Show. At just 53 inches long and 39 inches wide the Peel 50 is currently the smallest 3-wheeler ever produced. With a top speed of 38mph and powered by a 49cc DKW engine it was designed purely as a single seat town car to carry one adult and a shopping bag. The Peel 50 had no reverse gear, but at just 132lb it was light enough to park manually using the handle provided at the rear of the vehicle.’
Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any for sale, except that even if I find one supposedly they sell for about $15-30K. Dang.
It has started. Jen and Jon got their own cottage, away from ours. It started with great-grandpa Leo buying the green cottage and great-uncle Gary’s dad buying the cottage down the road. Eventually great-grandpa got the white cottage next door as well, and he started staying there and grandpa and his kids started staying in the green cottage. Great-grandpa died, and grandma took over the white cottage, and dad’s generation split between the two but shared ownership of the green cottage. Now aunt Jen and uncle Jon got their own cottage a drive down the road. We all could not fit in the two, it had to happen eventually. When I was younger and I thought of the way the two cottages were passed down, I wondered what would happen when Kristyn and I grew up. Who of my generation would get them? Since Kristyn and I are the cousins that frequent the cottage the most, I figured we would. But now that they need to be torn down and rebuilt as one, Jon and Jen feel a need to have their own, moving part of the family further away.
In the same way, Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving will not always be with mum’s side of the family or dad’s, it will be my side of the family or my wife’s, or, if I do not marry, my side of the family or whoever else has it.
These are things I wish could stay the same. I always want Christmas Eve to be with mum’s side of the family, and Christmas with dad’s. And I want to alternate sides on Thanksgiving and Easter. I always want everyone at our two cottages next door to each other, with great uncle Gary and auntie Yvonne down the road and their family sharing their house and the cottage across the road, and Kara sharing her cottage with her brother farther down the road. It has always been this way, because there was no ‘always’ before I came around. I do not want to get married and have my own family. I do not want Kristyn to get married and start having holidays at Eric’s side of the family. I do not want to grow up. I just want to whine about wanting things changing. Whining is just about all I do, is it not.
