Getting tanked

To get to Stonehenge from Andover, you have to take a bus that goes through the military base housing area. We saw helicopters and such all around, then while waiting at Amesbury for the bus to Stonehenge, we saw tanks driving down the street in one direction, and trucks carrying tanks in the other.

It reminded Mummy of the canoe livery in Ann Arbor - you can rent a canoe, paddle from one stop to the other, then they drive them back upriver. So we assumed, naturally, that we were witnessing tank rental. I thought it would be a good idea for us, as American tourists frightened by left-side driving. We could drive on any side we wanted, because we would be a tank!

On a related note, my dad's college housemate thought he drove a tank. He put a gun rack in his car and thought that made it a tank and therefore impervious to traffic laws. He also stole things from the other housemates and sold them. I hope he's well-medicated now, as he's a well-known Ann Arbor lawyer and also a member of the City Council or School Board or something.
