What a Gem!

Those twin cousins of mine are a hoot!

Look what they bought to drive around town!

A electric car to drive around town
too cute for words.
Why it even has a fan to keep you cool.
It is street accessible and goes up to 35 miles an hour.

I think we might drive it in the EIU homecoming parade to advertise for the 
Charleston Riot Anniversary

it evens has a back to haul things and they went to Rural King and bought 
the trunk to hold groceries.

It is so fun to ride in and everyone stares.
Are the staring at the twins or the car?
We are going to use it at the Riot Anniversary to move our speakers and VIP's
around from event to event right now.
How do you think President Lincoln is going to look in it?

Here is our Abraham Lincoln and Dennis Hanks by the way


The twins are off for a trip to Scotland and Ireland 
and me?
Saturday I am head to Springfield to meet with the 
Illinois State Historical Society and
Illinois Genealogical Society

Then on to Charleston for some riot work and pick up our tee shirts etc.

On the back they say
"I had a riot in Charleston IL"


Lastly I want to thank all my friends who have said prayers for my cousins 
Bob and Judy
I am so grateful to you.....
They are progressing although be it slow.
They are trying to raise money to fly them back to Colorado on a 
medical flight.
But yesterday Judy finally got to see Bob and he was stroking her hand with 
his thumb........true love is so sweet.

HI Ann! Oh, that little vehicle is adorable! I've never seen anything like it. Love that it has a little back place to poke stuff in. Those twins must be a hoot and I'd love to meet them. Oh, you'll have a good Lincoln! He looks like him. Thanks for popping in to see me and have a good productive trip.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Cute, cute, cute car! Please accept my apology for not commenting on your cousins, I read it and just didn't take the time to comment. I find myself doing a lot of that lately. So glad things are looking up for them. Have fun, sounds like you will be busy.

That car is cuter than cute, and I like the storage area in the back, kind of like a truck. I hope your cousins are doing well.

I will continue to pray for your aunt and uncle, Ann. What a fun little vehicle and they must have a ball tooling around in that thing! xo Diana

Your cousins must be all kinds of fun and they sure do know how to travel...cute car and trip to Scotland! Good to hear your cousin couple are improving. I imagine getting home will make a big difference. I loved your cousin comment on my August Ancestor Anecdote post. You are so right...Genealogy does GIVE us such pleasure. Have a great weekend!

Golf carts are a common sight about town where I live. Fun!

What a fun cart that would be to drive around in!
We all have golf carts around here to scoot around in.
The "riot" sounds like a fun event!
