so i’m sending back the heely’s, sadly. and looking into adapting my car with hand controls. the word is that insurance companies don’t like left-foot accelerators, as they make cars more accident prone. i think i read that they are only dangerous for the non-disabled driver, meaning the driver for whom the adaptation is installed is fine, but another driver in the same car can get into trouble. anyway, i am having trouble finding such a thing, even tho it would solve the problem perfectly. it seems hand controls are easier to find and self-install. i found a portable model that i could move from car to car. i’m investigating the licensing and insurance angles.
the “new” subaru we bought for the kids – a 1990 legacy (same color, but no snazzy stripe)
is in the shop, stalling and chugging. we’re hoping it’s only because there was some schmutz in the gas can we filled it from (driving it home from the guy we bought it from it ran out of gas and i used a can i had in the garage that had been sitting there for a long while, and probably had some sediment or water in it.) anyway, we hope to have it back on friday. what a pain.
gearing up for father’s day. what do i want? obviously one thing i can’t have (see if you can guess what) and a lot of little items (see my amazon wish list), but what i really enjoy is just doing things with the whole family. my son now has sundays off from his many jobs, so maybe it will happen this year.
