My son and I are on the way to the grocery store and my phone dings. I ignore it. It dings again. Then my phone rings. Normally, I have Bluetooth enabled in my car, but it is off right now, so I don't answer the phone. My son asks me why I don't answer the phone and my answer is, "Because I'm driving and people can wait."…

I would like to issue an overdue apology to my five roommates in college: I'm sorry I wouldn't answer the phone. Back in the pre-cell phone days (you know, when dinosaurs roamed the earth), a call would come into the dorm room phone, and I wouldn't move to answer it.…Continue

I'd like to issue a long-overdue apology to each of the five roommates I had in college: I'm sorry that I did not answer the phone when it was ringing. I knew that it drove you crazy, but I was absorbed in something else/didn't feel like talking to anyone, and thus, did not answer the phone.
One of the many reasons we moved was to shorten our commute time. So, although I find myself driving less miles, I find that I am in the car for the same amount of time as I used to be (or sometimes for longer). Every morning and evening, I sit in traffic and look at the other cars around me: I see angry, frustrated drivers who are endangering everyone around them by not using turn signals when merging; I see sleepy drivers who are…Continue

We all know by now that stupid situations are drawn to me like white on rice. I honestly don't seek them out. They just somehow always find me. And this probably explains why my 2012 SUV accidentally found its way into an antique auto show over this past weekend. Only me, right??!…Continue

Many of us probably remember the joy of having our very first car. Getting our driver’s license was a good feeling of control, the freedom of being behind the wheel without supervision was as exciting as it was scary!
It is a very exciting and scary time for your teen as well and you really need to consider what type of car you want them driving while they are so inexperienced. The additional expense of a new car probably doesn’t sound like a great idea right now so I wouldn’t advise…Continue

Once upon a time in a faraway land
Came 4 funny Dutch farmers with a little time on their hands
They all agreed to go for coffee at ole Joe’s shop
They all left their four houses; drove down the road, then came to a stop.
They came from the four corners of their country farms,
From the north, south, east and west,
All heading to Joe’s not causing any harm.
But when they met each other on that old country road
They knew they were in a…Continue

We live in the country, quite a few miles outside of the Kansas City suburbs. I drive into “town” four or five times a week to buy groceries, to go shopping, or to go to the gym. My drive is mainly spent on country…Continue

My daughter and her friends think I have road rage. I don’t have road rage; it’s just that I frequently disagree with how others handle themselves on the road.

Thirty-two years ago, I became a licensed driver, one of many pubescent teenagers let loose on the highways and byways of our great nation. In Illinois in 1979, driver’s education was still offered in school and every student was required to take the class. For the first quarter of my sophomore year, I sat in a classroom filled with students whose 16th birthdays were quickly approaching.

On Monday, I attended a funeral. My stepmother’s mother passed away and I wanted to support her in her loss. The funeral was in Memphis, MO, 230 miles from my home. That translates into a four-hour drive one-way, give or take 30 minute, depending on how heavy my foot is. I decided to drive up for the funeral and drive home all in one day.

The children have been out of school one day - yes, one day - and I can already feel my sanity slipping away. I'll miss it.
My daughter is already using the time off to ask a few questions, like: When can she get her own computer? Why is her brother being so annoying? Why can't she have a kitten? Or a puppy? And what does Santa have to do with Jesus, and what is the significance of a Christmas tree?
My son doesn't have any questions. He's an entertainer! Ta da!!! So…Continue
