~ A Ride ~

I did it!  I decided to take a ride today.  My driveway was pretty clear of ice and snow and my car was clean so I didn't have to brush or scrape.  I took my time going down my steps and heading up the hill to my car.  It started like a charm, but I really didn't doubt it.  My son has been running while he is here.  Out and about all by myself.  ::sigh:: it was wonderful.
So off I went to get some shots.  I had seen a few things I wanted for the name challenge.  So off I went.  I will post that challenge later.
I then drove down my cousin's street.  It had been awhile and I remember they had a built a big red barn.  Well big and red are so true, can you say Christmas card next year?
Great day....... then it started to snow.
