The papers were a PERFECT fit -- love them! The photo of course rocks - -but the story is HILARIOUS. and you wonder where the kids get their ideas LOL!! :)
Bahahahaha! Your story CRACKS ME UP...love how you told it using "said" as though "alledgely it didn't happen" like in a court case...you mom was cool. Not sure if my mom would have been so clever.
What a fantastic story. You page is just wonderful. Isn't it amazing the number of dumb things we did as kids and lived to tell about it! Makes me wonder what my kids did! LOL
Oh and yes, these gas tank CC papers couldn't be any more terrific for this story!
This is just a delightful story Lynn. I can't believe all you went through to get the car home. Your mom really handled the situation perfectly! I remember my mom "protecting" me from my dad's fury sometimes too. Great page girl, and cute photo too!
too funny story and cute page

this week's challenge was to do a lo about your mom shaking her head over something you did. bwahahahaha! so many to choose from really. so since this is about my first car cosmo's joy ride is flippin perfect. along w/a prima & qk dragonfly (seems to be a staple lately). journaling: This is my first car. Now, parents should KNOW that when your offspring gets their first car, they should NOT tell said offspring NOT to drive their car - especially if its the first day said car is in their possession. So with that in mind, after said parents left to DO something, I hopped in my new car to go over to my best pal Leta’s house to show off said car. Well on the way home, my new car stopped dead. And no matter what, wouldn’t start. There were NO CELL phones in this day. *gasp* I know. So I had the flashers on debating whether to walk to the gas station; when a young couple with a baby stopped to help. Explained my predicament, TOLD them parents had NO IDEA. But they didn’t have what they needed to tow me home. And they wouldn’t leave me alone. So LORD HELP ME, I hopped into the car with them and they drove what seemed to be MILES to get the tools they needed. So I’m now not only edgy because I NEED to beat the parents home, but I have no clue where I’m going and OMG! what this a good idea getting in the car. They towed me home, where my anxious brother was waiting and helped push the car up the drive and get it in the original position (which wasn’t quite there). What a blessing they were. SOoooo brother and I are awaiting the parents arrival on pins and needles because a. my NEW car doesn’t start and b. my new car won’t start. So mom comes in and we practically attack her (without trying to unduly attract dad’s attention (he just wasn’t the cool one lmao and was SOOOO clueless about a lot of stuff) to tell mom my sad story. So she said she KNEW something was up, keep MUM about it (HA!) and to wait until morning. So the next morning mom cleverly tells dad they NEED to go to the store and why don’t THEY test drive my car to make sure it good to go. So they hop in, turn the key and *gasp* nothing happens. They check all the gauges and they’re looking good. They call the dealer and the dude comes out w/some gas. Seems my gas gauge wasn’t working properly and I was out of gas. Dang. So simple. EVERY new car from then on ALWAYS had a full tank just in case (but I digress). Back to mom, SHE WAS AND HAS been always like that. No matter what we had going on and what plots we were doing. Mom was always there.
