Stray Thoughts 2.0
 
http://www.therossshow.com/images/smilies/poof.gif went the original "Stray Thoughts" thread. Time for a new one.

Just got my delivery of coffee today. Six, one-pound bags. :w00t2: Hope I got enough to get me through the holidays.

I really don't think you need more coffee...

Shrek asked when I was going to stop buying cookbooks. I think he's insane.

What if I am not ready for Christmas this year. I mean the holiday specifically, tis NOT the season for me this year. Very ambivalent about the whole thing.

I've had Christmas's like that before, back when I was in the middle of a divorce, or a family member's death, or whatever. Seeing everyone happy and celebrating was the last thing I wanted to be a part of. Depending upon your beliefs, it's just another day on the calendar...hope I don't get flamed for saying that. :-)

Nah. Everyone is entitled to an off day(s) every so often. I have had quite a few this past year. I have no ambition to do anything. :angel:

Some years I get off to a slow start but I always catch the spirit just in time! :ermm::ohmy::lol:

Our newly divorced (and at the same time surprised when his now ex wife left him) neighbor was putting up Christmas lights when we went for our walk tonight. Bless him. He got the house. Multicolored, but pretty.

Stray Thought...

How do you know when it's time to no longer drive any motorized vehicles?

Where we live, here in the middle of the desert, we see many, many older snow-birds on the road who REALLY shouldn't be.

I am exceedingly grateful that my own Mother knew that when we all moved here to the 'mainland' that she should not attempt to drive here.

K, my daughter works for the Registry. The Registry here has set up a phone number that you can call to report someone you think shouldn't be on the road due to age. You don't have to leave your name. She told me that when that phone number first went into effect, it was inundated with calls from children of elderly folks who shouldn't be driving. Perhaps if you can get the license number and report it without leaving your name, it would protect your identity. I know our manager here has had to report at least three residents.
They were called in to be retested and none of them passed the eye exam. License denied.

I know you hate to take away their freedom. But it may just be the time for their children to step up and take over the driving needs of them. WE had one tenant that was driving 15 mph and most of the time it was up on the sidewalk. The manager called his children and they took his keys away. They sold his car for him and put the money in his bank account. They tell you here in Mass. "Driving is a privilege, not a right."

One more thing the Registry did was make the license renewal every three years past 65 y.o. For others it is ten years. :angel:
