I Remember…

Miss Daisy

Driving Miss Daisy. Was it a song, TV show or movie?

Shame on me. I can’t remember!

Since I’m not allowed to drive, I feel like Miss Daisy when I have someone drive me around.

There’s an old saying, “You don’t miss the water until the well goes dry.”

When you can no longer drive – for whatever reason – you really miss it.

Driving is a privilege. One not to take lightly. Licenses can be revoked for a variety of reasons – reckless driving or under the influence.

Many medications carry warnings about safety when driving. Please adhere to these warnings. Be safe.

When a teenager reaches the age of 16, they can’t wait to be on the road. Often, it’s peddle to the metal.

Please slow down.

With advancing years, most folks tend to drive extremely slow, which can also be a problem. It is best to find a safe speed, close to the speed limit.

I heard a “driving” joke years ago.

A woman was driving on the Interstate at a very slow speed. She heard a siren and saw flashing lights.

She pulled off the road and a police officer stepped up and asked her if she knew why he stopped her. Before she could answer or be informed of the reason, her young son in the back seat piped up and said, “I know. I know. She was the only one you could catch.”

I miss being able to drive.

I told my eye doctor that I could drive – if everyone else stayed off the road.

I told him I could see the white lines and the yellow lines.

Bless him, he got all shook up. He thought I had been driving, and was relieved to find out that I had not.

Then I got to thinking, “What would I do on a dirt road.”

I discussed this with a friend and was told to drive between the ditches.

Dr. Dilley had an aunt who drove in her advanced years. Everyone knew to get out of the way when they saw her coming – even if you were walking on the sidewalk!
