Nice catch, Ginnie! I see they're driving a John Deer - a little mid west nostalgia for you?! smile
Ginnie Hart: It thrilled me to no end,Elizabeth! smile

i love those cute little trucks! have seen them here a few times, but the steering wheel is on the wrong side smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they're adorable, Elaine...these little trucks...but on what side is YOUR steering wheel there in Canada? The boy is the one driving here...and the steering wheel is on the same side here as in America??!!
you made something very special with your treatment of this scene Ginnie...
grandpa teaching his grandson how to drive....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. I loved this on the big screen because I saw so many more details. How fun to see the difference in the generations!

Peter might be right, Ginnie, but I think grandpa is enjoying having someone drive him about.

It looks like a small farm utility vehicle, and my no require registration/licence if it is slow.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure G'pa is in his element and totally enjoying the fact that he doesn't have to worry about a thing, Ray. Absolutely. But it was fun to come up with a story...especially since my grandson is now learning to drive in Atlanta!

I think Granddad looks a bit grim, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It even looks like Grandson is taking his ill Granddad out for a spin to cheer him up?!

I love that little 'John Dear'. The weather was great, even some sun, I wonder why the Granddad looks so grumpy, maybe he wanted to drive.....
I love the treatment.
Ginnie Hart: I love the different vehicles I see over here which are brand new to me, MLMA. I do wonder about G'pa here, though. I have come up with my own story, of course.... smile

Out with grand dad from the look of things Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Or the other way around, Chris...it's hard to tell who's with whom. smile

a wonderfully treated photograph! I recognise that we are nt in UK. I wish you a fine week!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. NOT in the UK or in America, for that matter. smile
It can't be more on the side than it is now Ginnie! I quite like your treatment.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Richard. He was taught well. smile Thank you.
The passenger does not seem to be enjoying the ride Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Don't you wonder what that story is, Bill!
I thought at first that you had reversed the image and put them on the wrong side of the road Ginnie, then I remembered that I will have to drive on the wrong side when I venture onto the continent this summer.
Ginnie Hart: PAY ATTENTION, Chad. That is exactly why we do NOT want to drive while in your country!!!
Looks like a fun vehicle to drive, but the old (mature ) guy appears to lack confidence in the driver
Ginnie Hart: It does bring a smile (and big question mark) to the face, Martin, for sure. smile
excellente compo et traitement!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
The young fellow has his eye on you. Don't worry.
Ginnie Hart: That's why he was so far over on his side of the road, for sure, Mary! smile
that looks lovely smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Joshi.

Oh, this reminds me of driving on the narrow lanes in the polder. To pass oncoming traffic was quite scary, especially when they were trucks or buses. If you did manage to leave the road surface, you would be stuck in winter mud. Look how this guy is right on the verge.
Ginnie Hart: And it was because of US that he was way over on his side of the road, Louis. You know the polder well!

Hopefully nipper will keep to his side of the road with his Johm Deere vehicle. MHopefully pop will be looking out to ensure nipper avoids you.
Ginnie Hart: It was quite amusing, Alan, after all was said and done. smile
Very interesting treatment, Ginnie - you'll have to tell us how you did it!
Ginnie Hart: Interesting treatment? Hmmmm. Maybe we all need our secrets, Tom, Right?? smile
very apt, for me personally, Ginnie. this morning my colleague driving to work drifted over to the left hand side of the road and had to be reminded to come to the right side, pun intended.
Ginnie Hart: Oh my, Ayush. Talk about a scary moment!
One day we will get to see grandson N taking nan G out for a ride too!
Ginnie Hart: HA! This might be sooner than you think, LC. In fact, it never occurred to me that it might happen in October when we see him next in Atlanta. He's working on his learner's permit as we speak. smile
Nothing runs like a Deere. Very cool processing.
Ginnie Hart: Now, John, Deere!!!!! smile Gotta love seeing them everywhere, Michael. Thanks.

OOOH makes me feel like summer! I think its the warm tones. I wonder how fast you can go in one of those tongue
Ginnie Hart: It was pretty nippy that day but gloriously sunny, Emily. More like an autumn day in early December. Good question about how fast this would go. Hmmmm.
love the processing! Cute little JD vehicle!
