I had my first lesson in driving a NON-AUTOMATIC car today. We went to a nearby neighborhood that has a road that runs a "loop". I managed to get from a stop to first to second and back to a stop in neutral without stalling or grinding the gears. My backseat audience was patient and quiet. Noah's only comment was that I was a "funny driver." I suppose that is better than a "bad driver." You gotta love being in a place in life where you have to learn to speak and drive all over again!
