Contributing To The Delinquency Of A “Minor”

Even though not too much has been going on here while we’re awaiting medical appointments in South Carolina, every once in a while something surfaces that’s a little fun.

My Dad stopped by again on his way back from Florida, enroute to his home in New Jersey.  Seems he was tired of driving around in an “old man’s” convertible and wanted something more appropriate for his age (91).

So he talked me into visiting the local Mazda Dealer.  After a few rounds of negotiations and a test drive, we came home with this:

A 2013 Mazda Miata hard top convertible sports car.  

He’s happy as a clam with his new ride and only a little disappointed that the weather is not cooperating, he likes to drive topless!

It’s quite amazing to see your father going through his teenage years all over again.  Sometimes I think I’m the grown up and he’s the kid.  ;c)

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Good for him. At 91 you deserve to spoil yourself and get what you really want.

  6. So funny you would post this. My Dad is 88 and he went out and bought himself a new Kia Optimia with ALL the BELLS and WHISTLES. I feel the same way you do. I say good for my Dad and good for yours too. I hope I can be doing the same when I get to be their ages. Curt
