Driving lesson #1

Slow down when turning corners.

This was my car.  I was out practicing driving with my dad and brother Karl.  My dad told me to “Turn here”…and I did, at 30 mph.  As a result I high centered the 1978 Mercury Zepher on the bush next to the driveway and I blew out a new tire too.  My dad yelled at me to slow down as I was taking the corner…he didn’t tell me to do it before I turned.  He got out of the car looked at it and told my brother and I to stay there so he could walk home  and get another vehicle.

When he came back he had my mom with him and she had a camera and I have never live this one down.  Now, even my kids tell this story of when I went around the corner too fast.

My mom and I were talking about it one day and she told me that my dad laughed all the way home.

Andrew will be driving soon,  I am not looking forward to turning him loose on the roads here.  He thinks he knows everything there is to know about driving…think I might blow this picture up and frame it for him.
