Thought it high time to start the next discussion.

What do you think?

As for myself, I learned from one of 'the' best.

Wanna a ride? Have some fun with it.

A few days ago, I ran over the edge of a curb as I was turning a corner, lol. Guess that means I should be eligible for a senior driving test? I never run a curb, although I was driving a truck at the time, but still no excuses for that, lol. Otherwise, I'm a good driver, keep within the speed limits, break for lights and stop signs, etc., etc. I had driver training in high school but when it came to taking the test, I didn't have a car because my brother had just smashed up our dad's car. Dad was so angry he refused to let his kids ever go near his car again. About 3 years later I got married, took the test and passed. In a way, I'm kind of glad I didn't have a car in high school. I don't know if I would have been as responsible then. Sometimes things happen for a reason. Who knows, maybe it was for the best.

Now you've got me wondering Marissa. Come on now Marissa, come clean. Inquiring minds want to know, lol. Well, I have another one to share; I'm not very good at backing into the driveway and I came close to swerving into a fence. My husband can't understand why. Must be my peripheral vision I tell him, but then he retorts back to me "Use the mirrors, use the mirrors!" I do, but I still have to occasionally open the door to see exactly where I'm at. There were a few scratches to the side where I was too close to the shrubs, lol. I'm getting better at backing in though, but there's still room for improvement, ha!

Inconsistent.

I've whacked some shots off the tee that were just absolutely fun to watch fly off down the fairway. The Pro's would be jealous.

But way too much, the slices and hooks send the ball all over the place.

It's so bad that when I call for a tee time, they issue safety helmets to all the other golfers who will be on the same golf course with me for insurance liability reasons.

My driving is still good, the women I drive all seem to enjoy my abilities and technique.

My driving is fast and aggressive. I've been rear-ended & side-swiped but never been the cause of an accident.

I realized immediately the title is all wrong. Teehee

What I really hoped to discuss (critique) what the driving (auto) abilities of others.

Often times I wonder how many people, who've had their drivers license for a time, would even be able to pass the driving test again now.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm an awesome driver!

Those people I see in my rear view mirror flipping their cars to avoid me suck.

But I must not gloat... Not every civilian can afford to commute with an M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank (with Type R stickers)...

And thus ends the Powerball winner fantasy...

For now, I'll just go with the flow of traffic.

I can drive anything.
From an 18 wheeler to the giant rock trucks in the mining industry.
I've had my license since I turned 16.
Only one speeding ticket in my life.

Never had an accident or got a ticket. I'm not as sharp as I used to be and my old eye's are not so good anymore. I don't think I would keep that safety record. So the last time to renew I let it lapse and got an ID card instead.
