How My Parents Kept Me Humble When I Was In Junior High

The Honda Moped 
 (whatever that means)

Mine was YELLOW.

Same WHITE baskets.

Same ORANGE flag.

Maxed out at 40 mph...but my parents said I couldn't go faster than 25 mph.

I was the epitome of coolness...or not. 

If only I had gotten a RED Honda Scooter like the popular kids...
then I would have been cool...or still not.

Thanks for taking that walk down memory lane with me.
And thank goodness for growing up!

What was your sweet ride as a kid?

Hold UP! You had a moped?? I don't care what color it was or how fast you could go...that is awesome!!

My first ride was a brown, 2-door, manual, '79ish chevette. I'd kill it at every stop sign so I just drove around town reeeaaaallly slowly without ever stopping. Easy to do in a town with no stop LIGHTS.

I'm sorry you only had a yellow one - we could choose from orange and lime green - at least the colors were cool. I'm pretty sure I don't remember the flag - but maybe I'm blocking it out!! The horn was pretty sweet though! Nothing like garage saling on a moped!! I'm also pretty sure it helped to be 9 years older than you - it was possibly 1/100th cooler to ride a moped at that time!! HA HA!!!

Hey Londa,

I am trying to find your homemade yogurt recipe post. I scanned through old posts and looked through the recipe section but couldn't find it. Could you point me in the right direction?

Thanks - Christen

My parents bought me a golf cart when I was 8 or 9 and I drove it all over our backyard. :)

I was always jealous of the kids with mopeds.

Girl, you crack me up. So the humility had nothing to do with purple outhouses? Just wondering. hehe...
