when you use to have none” A old t. v. jingle that made me what to learn to
drive. The commercial show a car with 2 steering wheels, sorta like those
sweeper trucks you see in cites and home construction sites.. My 2 youngest
daughter just spoke to me recently about taking driving lessons soon.
I believed that it was a blessing to me cause I never attended a driving school
or took any type of lessons and taught driver’s education while serving in the
military to those who never drove.. Yesterday a truck driver was telling my
boss how he always wanted to drive a big truck since he was about 5 years old
You know what? It put a smile on y face as I too knew when I was the same age
that I wanted to drive a truck.. Before all of the distractions we have now, bluetooth
gps, and cell phones, you only had the radio to worry about.Something about
having your seat adjusted and vehicle cleaned inside and out your senses came alive.
As I come up upon anoter birthday, maybe I will take the van to the car wash and go
get some ice cream and just enjoy a short trip to no place in particular. As for advise
to my daughters, there will be not much only painting a picture with words to describe
my past cross country trips and driving in certain states and foreign countries.
I cherish those moments and share them with other(I still love reading”real maps).
May everyone who reads this be greatly encouraged and “Greyhound” is still ok also.
