If wishes were "real" outside of my head, I’d wish for a driver to drive me where I want to go. I love beautiful vehicles, old & new; Cars, SUVs, motorcycles, trucks and motor homes, yeah, all the luxury ones. But I don’t want to pay, clean or maintain them. I just want to drive or rather ride! I love the view from a moving vehicle where speeds can be adjusted to my visual capability. That’s why a driver would be the perfect gift for me.
Well, I don’t foresee having the capital to obtain the driver or the right vehicles in the near future, so I resign myself to the one vehicle I have and the one driver I have. Me! Getting ready to drive starts with my short check list, I say to myself, “Self, are you ready to drive…1,2,3"
#1 Routine expert maintenance completed. Husband’s job (alignment, oil change, hoses, battery). Check!
#2 Grab accessories needed to drive and be safe: GPS, speakerphone, emergency bag, goodie bag. Check!
#3 Know before you go. Gas level, windows clean, oil & tire pressure, fuse location. Check!
Now all I need is a destination and I’m ready to roll!
