Imagine Me Driving Through A Red Light

Imagine Me Driving Through A Red Light

I never thought there would be a day that I would be driving through a red light. It happened this morning! Let me give you some insight into my driving habits. I have had a driver’s license for over fifty years. The only infractions I have, in those years is a ticket for parking in a no parking zone and one while I was in Florida on business. The first was at a hospital. I was rushing my wife to…

Been There, Done That, Got The T Shirt
