The bringer of pain...

If you didn't already know, there's a new addition to our family, a new VW Bug. Not only is it fun to drive, but I bet you remember when you were a kid and played that wonderful travel game "Slug Bug".

This is a new sadistic pleasure of mine. Any time I drive past a group on the road, especially if it includes young kids, I just have to check the rear view mirror after driving by. Yesterday I caught a dad nailing both his little boys on the shoulder and I could see him yelling "SLUG BUG!!!" Now that's just plain fun...

I used to play that game with my Son, although this was before the new bugs were out. Our variation: Bug was one slug, VW Square backs, Vans and Round backs were two slugs and the ultimate; the Thing was 4 slugs. Needless to say, our road trips were very painful. Jeff D.
