They were thrilled to announce that a golf cart was being made for them and would be here by the time the weather warmed up and they could drive it around. After that....they forgot about it. Until YESTERDAY!
Finally! This guy was waiting for them in the garage when we got home from school and work. We got the call Friday that it was coming into town, but we were still at work an hour away. A friend of ours who had a cart on the same shipment offered to meet the driver and assist with the delivery. The delivery truck was too big to go down our street, so he parked the truck at a nearby shopping center and drove the cart to our house! They even parked it in the garage and charged it for us! By the time we got home Friday night, it was ready for a test drive! Things we quickly learned about the golf cart:
1.) The 'back up beep' is loud enough to inform the whole town that you intend to back up
2.) When trying to turn left, while your neighbor (who most likely does not speak English) is driving in the other lane, if you hit the horn instead of the blinker he'll think you are beeping at him and will stop. (Does anyone know how to say 'My bad' in Russian?)
3.) The blinker is too close to the horn. (see #2)
These ladies could not wait to take it for a spin.
In fact, one (and we won't call any names) didn't want to leave it to come inspect the progress on the new house...so we had to bribe her with other forms of transportation.
There was a steady buzz all day with trucks bringing loads and loads of dirt to fill in the foundation.
The next step will be for Block Guy to block up the hole where the tractors were going in and out and Electrician and Plumber to work their magic before the slab is poured.
