Just a Warning


Blog Posted:1/4/2014 10:12:00 AM
With the holidays upon us, I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.
 
Some people have been known to drive home carefully after a "social session" out with friends.  Well, two days ago, I was out for a holiday gathering and had several cocktails followed by some nice red wine.  Although feeling somewhat jolly, as they say, I still had enough common sense to know that I might be just a bit over the legal limit for driving.  That's when I did something that I've never done before; I took a cab home.
 
Sure enough, on the way home, there was a police road block, but since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.
 
This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage, I don't know what to do with it.

    LOL I'm proud of YOU! One time last summer I was behind a slow car GRUMBLING [I get a bit of road rage:(] and I thought God is trying to slow you DOWN! So I didn't pass the person [I was considering it even though it was a no passing zone] when sure enough around the next bend was a police car parked with the radar gun out! It's not that God works in such mysterious ways it's just WE too often don't listen!
