Pink Saturday - Jenna's Driving!

Beverly at how sweet the sound hosts Pink Saturday. Stop by her place to see the many other pink items people are sharing.









My granddaughter, Jenna, telephoned and asked me to take her to practice her driving. She's fifteen years old and has her Learner's Permit. I asked her to wear something pink so that I could take a Pink Saturday picture. She struck a pose in her pretty pink shirt.

Notice the pretty pink pearls? That's a vintage necklace from my jewelry box. Jenna borrowed them from me several years ago. I told her she could borrow them as long as she wanted, but truthfully, I never thought she'd want them this long! Don't they look pretty around her neck? It pleases me that she like some of the same things I like.

Although she's only been out practicing her driving five other times, Jenna is already a good driver. She keeps both hands on the wheel and makes excellent turns. She drove smoothly and hardly jerked at all.

At the end of our time together, Jenna said that she loves to drive and was still raring to go, but I was stick-a-fork-in-me-I'm-done! I hope she telephones me for another driving practice time together.



Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday, Sally. My mother is a wonderful treasure, and I am so blessed to have her in my life.

And, you are so blessed to have your very own "pink" granddaughter. Ugh! My grandson is only nine, so we have a while until driving practice begins. Whew!

bj said...

Oh, Sally girl, this is a priceless PINK posting. She is such a beautiful girl and I loved seeing her drive in her pink shirt and your pink pearls. What I loved the very, VERY most is that she wanted to spend time with her Grandmother !!! I love that! How blessed we are to have these precious grandkids around. I thank the Good Lord every day for mine.
Happy, happy day,
bj

She reminds me of my daughter who is 14, wears lots of pink and black together, and never lets me forget for even one day that soon when she is 15, I will need to start taking her out to drive. LOL I hope it will be more fun than scary!

Good Morning Sally
That is sooo sweet that she called to ask you to go driving with her. That must have made your day. It would have made mine and nice that she live close enough too. She is darling...very pretty and love her long hair. What a special time. I hope she calls you up another time too. *s*.

Have a lovely rest of the day. Thank you for sharing your pink and the pearls ARE pretty. They must remind her of you...

She's a beauty! Maybe she likes the jewelry because wearing it makes her feel closer to you?
The blog addy in the comment you left me comes up as invalid. Just thought you would want to know. The one posted on How Sweet the Sound is ok.

Neabear said...

Even the car looks somewhat pink in the picture. It takes a brave person to ride with someone learning to drive. My mom was that brave person. Not only with us, but with neighbor kids too and my kids. I did ride with my kids when they were learning to drive. I think that is where I got some of my gray hairs. Ha! Happy Pink Saturday.

Suzie Button said...

How nice that you got to be part of this milestone with your grand daughter! I love too that she likes your jewelry. My 20 year old daughter wears my jewelry all the time too! Happy Pink Saturday! Suzie

Patricia said...

Oh, what a lovely post and lovely pink pearls. She looks adorable in the pink shirt. My Grandaughter of twelve enjoys watching black & white movies with me - I was surprised. Happy Pink Saturday.

What a pretty pink granddaughter you have! And so grown up looking...she would love that I said that, lol. I love those pink pearls too and don't blame her for wanting to borrow them!

I'm still mommy to a teen, but imagine that it's great fun having grandchildren in their teens!

How wonderful your grand-daughter wants to spend time with you. The pink pearls are fabulous. Have a happy pink day. :)

g said...

Wow, she looks great! Very confident! What a milestone. What a lovely and mature daughter you have.

I remember when my son was learning to drive - I let him drive with me to his school each morning, and then I took the car the rest of the way to work. It was a nice time to be together, mom and kid.

happy pink saturday, sal!

daisy said...

Oh, how fun to take her driving. She's so pretty, Sal. Must take after you... :)

I laughed out loud at your stick-a-fork-in-me-I'm-done comment. That is so funny. Thanks for the smile today.

Brown-Eyes said...

Greetings from Finland to you Sally and your grandchildren specially to this beautiful,pink young lady !
Our children can get their driving licenses in that year, when they will be 18 years old.
I have three children, but I or their dad did not teach any of them to drive.Here it is very rare, that parents or grandparents are giving them driving lessons.
Thank you for your visit "my place",welcome again !

Sal with the beautiful Smile! Happy Pink Saturday! I have enjoyed seeing your pink expression. I love how you chose to use it as part of a story instead of just displaying items from around the house like I did. Very creative. Jenna has a pretty smile like you. Have a wonderful evening. I look forward to what you have next. hugs, Ellen

Hi Sally
Thanks for visiting my blog today. It's wonderful to make new blog friends.

Take care

Hi Sally,
Your granddaughter is beautiful, must get it from her grandmother!! She'll get the hang of driving. It's like riding a bike, once you learn you don't forget. Well, most of the time anyway. Take Care!!!

Justine said...

Hey Sally girl. Funny that you just came to visit me, and once you left I put up a new post. So come back!

Jenna is so pretty and obviously a funky girl. How many different colors does she have in her hair? I think I've counted 4. LOL

Justine :o )

Dawn said...

Well look at her all pretty in pink. I'm glad she had you to take her out to practice. I couldn't go out with Britt when she was learning. It made me too nervous!

Happy Pink Saturday.

Jeanne said...

Sally, Your granddaughter is so pretty in pink. I love her expression with the keys. I am not sure I would be a good instructor for my granddaughters driving lessons. They are not old enough to drive yet. But soon. sigh. I will be a wreck when they are.

Hugs...Jeanne
