Texting and Driving!


I was rear-ended on my way home from work a couple of weeks ago. Was the driver texting? Maybe, maybe not, but it has made me more aware of folks driving around me. Last night I looked in my rearview mirror and saw a huge SUV. It was packed full of kids, probably a school run, and the responsible adult behind the wheel wasn’t even looking at at the road. He was texting. Almost ran into the back of me at the stop lights. Pulled along side me and continued to text. He had a precious cargo of young children. Why put them at risk? How can we teach kids not to text when they see their parents do it all of the time? The lights changed to green and he didn’t even notice. His phone was much more important.


Chchch Changes


My driver’s license photo is ten years old because I renewed on-line five years ago! Today, I had to go to the DMV. A ten-year old photo just doesn’t cut it.  The eye test, it was pretty easy…and then I had to answer the questions…Changes

Weight? UGH – probably 10 pounds heavier than ten years ago, but 1 pound a year isn’t bad is it?

“I have your hair color down as red” she said and her eyes rested on my short grey hair, “I guess I’d better change that too”
