(But it ain’t, I do not have gray hair)
While we stayed in the Orlando area our coach faced the entry door of a coach on the other side of the street. An elderly couple (older than I, of course) occupies a very nice Fleetwood motor home. I could not help but see them as they returned home just after we had set up, they were very feeble.
The old gent stutter steps but still he aids his wife as they walk. (fast forward a few years) I am seeing Sherry and I out our front picture window. I see time flying as we guide each other thru the final stages of our lives.
(*** Sand Hill Cranes)
This couple seems too feeble to be RV’ing, but they actually may not be doing the moving. Some folk have their children or a friend drive the coach, and they just live in it.
I know there comes a time that one is too old to make the decisions with the speed required to operate 26,000 pounds of vehicle on the highways of our great country. You and I see folks who should not be driving for their safety and the safety of the public. WHO should make that decision? How should it be made? We have a BIL who is limited to driving within 10 miles of his home. That allows him to still be independent and get his meds and groceries. (But we all know that too is dangerous, but the DOT doesn’t want to make the decision.)
I can only speak for me. I still feel confident with my driving. I always have a second opinion. She is the other passenger in this coach. I hope if she says, “Honey it is unsafe for us to drive.” That I will listen.
Age alone is not the determining factor, we humans know that. There are a FEW people who can drive safely into their 90’s, and some who are not safe at 50! So STAY TUNED, IMMA THINKING! (PS: Sherry just said ‘wintering in Arizona next year is OUT!’… “Summer in Alaska, OUT!…… Shucks!)
On second thought, maybe my passenger is not the best source, I may need a third opinion!
This is me enjoying the shingles on my head. My right eye was closed from swelling. You can see there are some still drying up.
I am smiling and enjoying the attention.
PS: ***(Pictured: Sand Hill Cranes, they stand near 4’ tall, as they wander about the park finding bugs, this crane can be dated back 10 million years, the most common Crane. Their call is weird, a rattling bugle, or something LOL)
My favorite cars.
