The Amphibious Vehicle:
Speaking of amphibians, one of the neat things about the net for me has been that I discovered that there are two more Daniel Duttons, both in the U.K., both with brilliant & delightfully dry senses of humor, and both of whom were so kind as to write and propose solidarity in our shared name. I had to concede to be called Daniel2, in concession to the obvious juvenility of one of my dear others, but I delight in both of them. We're just a clic now, but we're hoping to grow into a movement.
The other Daniel (see how confusing it can be?) recently sent me this fascinating tidbit.
I'm not usually attracted to automobiles, but I'll have to admit I want one of these. And I have a great childhood memory of something similar - A friend of my oldest brother Bobby took us for a ride in his new convertable when I was maybe 7 or 8. We drove down to Lake Cumberland, not unusual in itself as a destination, but when, without a word of warning, he drove down a boat ramp and into the lake, I was freaked, astounded, boggled, and thrilled, in that order. We putted around the lake for a turn can drove back out. I don't think that car, whatever model it was, was quite as cool as this one! (and I like yellow too.)
