Exiting the relationship

I inserted this title because of the freeze frame on the You Tube video 🙂 So my friend calls and says she wants to get out of this relationship she’s been in for the last seven months. First of all, why are you calling me? This sounds like a “Sex in the City” dialogue. Should…

Anticipating the actions of others

Anticipating the actions of others, wow! I have to say when this one came down the pipe my first thought was all the ex-girlfriends and the bad relationships I have had. Could I tie this in with driving, sure…I mean driving and bad relationship go hand in hand. Think about it, you have a relationship…

The Fog

I was driving down a lonely highway in the middle of the Louisiana Bayou, somewhere between Morrow and Opelousas.  Ghost fog would blanket with a haunting surprise that no headlights could warn.  You couldn’t see the front of the hood with this thick, evil fog.  I’ve seen horror movies that start out this way.  After…

Signs, signs everywhere there’s signs

OK, this one’s for my counter culture, artists, renegades and rouges.  It’s in our basic nature to defy authority and signs that warns us of danger.  You know the Scorpion and the Frog?  “… It’s our character!”  We will never change.  Everything from cigarette warning labels to speed limit signs, we give the one finger…

Who is the worst driver

  Ahhh, to be young again, driving with the wind in your hair and not a care in the world, except who you will ask out for prom.  I remember the first time I drove by myself without my parents or that stringent driving instructor.  I felt like Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie Titanic, “I’m…

Driver’s Karma

The traffic light, the device that regulates our driving lives.  It decides whether or not we are late or on time to our destination.  But some would dare to have a shameless disregard to our social order.  Renegades of the road, who speed up when they see a yellow light and tear through the intersection…

America’s next pandemic Road Rage

A recent survey reveals when it’s comes to road rage, New York City is truly the big apple!  Dallas/Fort Worth follows closely behind for the number two position.   The rest of the list of shame includes; Detroit, Atlanta and Minneapolis/St. Paul. Mankind has advanced so rapidly in just the past one hundred years.  We have…

Getting on the freeway

Just the other day I was on the freeway on ramp, when this guy in front of me is doing 30mph on the entrance ramp!  How in the (Insert the name of a warm place here) does this jerk think he is going to merge on the freeway at that speed?  The speed limit is…

Booze and dope don’t be a dope

Now I will admit, I don’t drink often but when I do, Jack Daniels is my poison.   Some people like to mix their J.D. with Coca Cola, others like to mix it with Xanax.  You won’t give a damn about nothing! Mixing drugs with alcohol is a deadly combination; you might as well play Russian…

Don’t leave home without a Cell phone

It seems like now days everyone has a cell phone, it’s almost a necessity.  With GPS, web service and even watching T.V. who could live without it.  Having a cell phone with you when you drive is also the best thing to take incase you need emergency help.  But checking your e-mails, texting your boo…
