To try and answer your questions 


Why anybody would give a kid a whistle, maybe only to annoy somebody else.


Thanks for the post. I really enjoyed it.

The Best thing about Grand kids is that you can get them such things and send them home to mom & dad to avenge yourself for putting up with the parent as a kid!! :smilewink:

Thanks George.  I am sure you all enjoyed it.  

I remember when I saw the 1976 Weinermobile.  No whistles that I remember.

I didn't know the wiennermobile was still around!  That is pretty neat the history of the Wiennermobile and the different styles.  


Glad you and the grand-kids had a good time Grand.  When they get older they will be at a reunion or something talking to each other and one will remember going to see the Wiennermobile and make a comment about it.


To think paying all that $$$ to send your kid to college, especially and Ivy league school, then the end up driving the Wiennermobile!  Although 44K isn't bad to start off with and for just driving around the country, and as Grand said it does get their foot in the door.  


Thanks for Sharing with us Grand and a nice bonding time with your grand kids.  I bet George appreciated the whistle!  :rolling:
