A Limo for Grandma and Grandpa
I’ve been a busy bird lately, living the highlife while driving around in a stretch limousine. My family rented it to celebrate Grandma and Grandpa’s 60th wedding anniversary.
We took Grandma and Grandpa to visit wineries in the Niagara Escarpment. Because us kids couldn’t sip wine, we got to have sodas, cheese and chocolates. There were also many gardens to explore…one even had a toad pond!
I must say, my favourite part was the limousine. Once upon a time, only rich and famous people like movie stars got to drive in this type of car. Now people can rent them for special occasions. There’s nothing like arriving in a limo if you want to make a big entrance.
A limousine is usually a stretched sedan or saloon car. Ten people fit into the one we rented. Limos usually have a partition between the passengers and the chauffer (driver).
Our family doesn’t usually drive in limos, but for Grandma and Grandpa's 60th, we wanted to do something really special. And it was.
