    Mother takes the wheel

    My 91-year-old mom, taking the Tundra Buggy back to the dock after a day in search of wildlife along the shores of Hudson's Bay east of Churchill.

    It looks like your mom is in good health if she is out doing fun stuff like that at her age.

    This puts a smile on my face seeing such pure joy on her face. For 91 your mom looks like she is doing very well.

    Looks like your mom sure had some fun. I hope the polar bears survived!

    All joking aside, you managed the interior and exterior light quite nicely.

    Janice your mum is amazing, and I have to say, seems to have the best office to work in - I really envy her!

    Fantastic!

    90+ folk are so Photogenic.

    You asked for C&C . . . consider better for you to get on that box thing and nail Mum Half Profile, rather than Full Profile ... after all if Mum is ONLY 91 . . . you must be younger!

    Re: Mother takes the wheel

    Thanks, all. She is a remarkable woman, and her positive attitude wins her friends wherever she goes. Point taken about the profile, William, but I didn't want to get between her and the real driver, in case he had to come to her aid. She doesn't do this for real, Trev; driving those buggies takes considerable skill, as they follow rocky old military roads that are not maintained and replacement parts are hard to come by. This was one of the very few flat spots that my mom and the teenager in our group got to try their hand.

    AH!

    More of the back story.
    What a hoot!
    I expect that your Mother was as enthusiastic as "the teenager" to have her go at the wheel.
    Priceless moment.
    Treasure it.
