Aren't We Fortunate To Be Seniors !

Saturday, July 07, 2012

A friend of mine was sitting on a lawn, sunning and reading, when he was startled by a fairly late model car crashing through a hedge and coming to rest on his lawn.

He helped the elderly driver out and sat her on a lawn chair.

“My goodness” he exclaimed, “you are quite old to be driving!”

“Yes” she replied, ” I am old enough that I don't need a license.”

“The last time I went to my doctor, he examined me and asked if I had a driver's license.” I told him "yes" and handed it to him.

He took scissors out of a drawer, cut the license into pieces and threw them in the wastebasket.” “You won’t be needing this anymore,” he said.

So I thanked him and left.

    Though this is funny to read, it does have a sad element also. Even though I still drive, I am not driving at night due to the car lights distorting my vision. I am hoping I have more years to enjoy driving though. emoticon
