Twiddling Thumbs and Passing The Time of Day

That's my day today, waiting for parcel collections, waiting for parcel deliveries, waiting to collect Sue who has had to go I thought I'd do a bit of revision on How To Drive a Motor Car.



I've read all about how to hold the steering wheel, how to steer, how to start the car, how to stop the car. I can't seem to buy a suitable red flag though on Amazon, so I'm a bit stuck.
Anyway, here's the family in a suitable vehicle.

I suspect I've been watching too much Outlander and may have slipped back in time a few years. Back to normal tomorrow. Hopefully Turlough, hopefully, as the Doctor used to say.

'How to drive a motor car.' I had one edition of this book, handed down from my father. It had a similar but slightly different cover from yours. I remember some advice in it about driving on a slippery road. It said something about putting your nearside wheels in the gutter to take advantage of the grit there!. Also the wonderful expression 'beware the dreaded sideslip'.(Which I always did, especially in my VW Beetle on wet roundabouts.)
Years ago I sent the book to the Haynes Motor Museum in Somerset for their library because I was so impressed with the collection of cars.
Picture, dad, my brother Peter and me, about 1948. Probably West Wittering.
