The crocuses were out.
My son and I were heading back from Algonquin.
We were on McHenry Avenue when I saw a sign that said, “CAR WASH.”
Since the car was covered with winter grime,
My son protested.
He said his DS was running out of power.
I just had to ask the 10-year old.
I am still capable of learning.
He didn’t want to get out of the car.
It didn’t take a lot of encouragement to get the young man doing most of the work to squirt the hose on my son’s face.
He likes that even when he is in the house and I’m watering flowers.
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church was the location of the car wash, but it wasn’t the youth group holding it. The church’s youth leader suggested holding the car wash on a Sunday in the future, when cars would be plentiful.
