Happy Aunts’ and Uncles’ Day!

Let’s celebrate this interesting and innovative article today from the Toronto Star. I encourage the Star to do the same story about uncles. So, a Professional Uncle No Kids would be a PUNK. Punk music can be rather good.

My Volkswagen Golf is the idea of my eldest niece! When she was three years old, she asked me why I did not have a car? So, shortly after, I was heading out with my sister, my eldest niece, my baby niece at the time (they actually still are very young), and we had seen the Smurfs 2 movie. I tried a Mazda first. I found it too shaky. I found the 2011 Volkswagen that I have to be smooth. I leased it first for four years and my father helped me to buy out the lease when the lease was over. I got the personalized license plates about four years ago. I have a child’s seat in the back for my youngest niece for when she is in the car. No, it’s not diesel! Britain has actually started banning diesel vehicles as of today, just as an aside.
