A friend and I were out driving his dad's car one day while his parents were out of town (No licenses, only learners permits). We had stopped on the old Stone Quarry Mill Bridge

And needless to say we might have been smoking a little something. But anyway when it came time to go his car wouldn't start... Talk about 2 kids scared outta their wits! Fortunately a good guy happened along and gave us a jump, without asking any questions! We couldn't get home fast enough!!

Hope young Mr. Henderson had his learners permit!

Not a great start in learning how to drive!
