Liberation Day ….

The Peacemobile arrived yesterday morning, fully charged. Range of 15 miles on one charge. Four speeds and a tiny, tinny horn.  All I have to do is sit in it, turn it on, choose the speed, hold the joystick, and glide on.

So yesterday afternoon I ‘drove’ for half a mile to see an old friend from my Saudi days who was visiting his sister, whose husband David I got to know a few months before he died of MND.

June 1, Liberation Day.  I’ll always need a chaperone to keep me out of trouble, but it was really good to be in charge of the transport.  Must get a louder horn though ……..

Here’s the first trip, on day one:
