Well it finally happened

My wife and I were coming home from dinner with friends last night and we get a call from our oldest son. He works at an outdoor ice rink and he was building and cutting the ice last night and asked if I wanted a ride on the Zamboni. I've wanted a ride on a Zamboni since I could remember. We got there and he just finished a cut and was waiting for it to freeze up. Then we went out to flood it so he could keep building the ice up. He made the first pass around the edges with me as a passenger. Then he stops the dang thing and lets me drive the rest of the flood! Whooo hooo! Another thing off my bucket list!

Kind of like the first time you let him drive the car. Only the other way around.
