Slice 19 March 20, 2012 Convertible

Have you ever owned a convertible?  I wasn't so sure I wanted one.  My husband had always dreamed of owning one.  After his mother passed away, he decided he would get one.  I know his mom would get a chuckle out of seeing him with "his" car.  He says it's ours, but it is his.  He lets me drive it, but he truly cares for the car, treats it with the utmost respect and doesn't let anything happen to it. 

Well, now that we have had a convertible for about 14 years, I am in love with it too.  I wish we had had one when I was 25!  I think my biggest problem in the beginning was worrying about my hair!  I was concerned that it would get messed up, or I wouldn't look good enough, etc.

Now, I don't care! :)  I love the wind blowing through my hair, the breeze, the open sky, being able to see the stars at night when we drive down the road in the country.  It is so relaxing.  What a thrill it is to take people for a ride who have never been in a convertible with the top down!

One year, my husband and I made it a goal to take some of the older people in our church a ride and take them to DQ for an ice cream cone or sundae.  They loved it!  How amazing a small thing like a convertible ride can brighten your spirits after a long day! The picture is of our first convertible and both of our children drove it away after they were married.  It was special!

Again, this weather is so unbelievable that we have had the top down in March multiple times. We have chosen to enjoy this time and the weather in many wonderful ways.  How have you enjoyed it?  Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Slicing! :)
