Miss Daisy\r\n\r\nDriving Miss Daisy. Was it a song, TV show or movie?\r\n\r\nShame on me. I can\u2019t remember!\r\n\r\nSince I\u2019m not allowed to drive, I feel like Miss Daisy when I have someone drive me around.\r\n\r\nThere\u2019s an old saying, \u201cYou don\u2019t miss the water until the well goes dry.\u201d\r\n\r\nWhen you can no longer drive \u2013 for whatever reason \u2013 you really miss it.\r\n\r\nDriving is a privilege. One not to take lightly. Licenses can be revoked for a variety of reasons \u2013 reckless driving or under the influence.\r\n\r\nMany medications carry warnings about safety when driving. Please adhere to these warnings. Be safe.\r\n\r\nWhen a teenager reaches the age of 16, they can\u2019t wait to be on the road. Often, it\u2019s peddle to the metal.\r\n\r\nPlease slow down.\r\n\r\nWith 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.\r\n\r\nI heard a \u201cdriving\u201d joke years ago.\r\n\r\nA woman was driving on the Interstate at a very slow speed. She heard a siren and saw flashing lights. \r\n\r\nShe 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, \u201cI know. I know. She was the only one you could catch.\u201d\r\n\r\nI miss being able to drive.\r\n\r\nI told my eye doctor that I could drive \u2013 if everyone else stayed off the road.\r\n\r\nI told him I could see the white lines and the yellow lines.\r\n\r\nBless him, he got all shook up. He thought I had been driving, and was relieved to find out that I had not.\r\n\r\nThen I got to thinking, \u201cWhat would I do on a dirt road.\u201d \r\n\r\nI discussed this with a friend and was told to drive between the ditches.\r\n\r\nDr. Dilley had an aunt who drove in her advanced years. Everyone knew to get out of the way when they saw her coming \u2013 even if you were walking on the sidewalk!
