This reporter has been thinking about making travel plans to some place warmer. I have been in many places but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, one can’t go alone because you have to be in Cahoots with someone to go there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there! Really, one has to be driven there! I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends and family and some of my old jobs.
I would like to go to Conclusions but one has to jump and I’m not too sure I want that kind of physical activity because I might hurt my knee again.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a very sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.
I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I’m in Capable and I seem to go there more and more often as I’m getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the old adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart. At my age, I need all the stimuli I can get!
Now that I think about it, I may have been in Continent but I don’t remember what country. It’s an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there!
All my travel plans were almost cut short last week by police cars. Seriously, I had given my signal to turn left into the Charlotte C.H. Post Office parking lot. Before I could blink, I had to immediately pull over to the right curb to avoid a collision with the “blue lights” flying between me and the car that I was meeting. Apparently, “blue lights” had turned from Route 47 faster than a flying bullet!
After I turned around at the bank, another “blue lights” car came screaming through town. Luckily, and I say luckily again, no one was pulling out of any side street or there would have been a tremendous crash.
While traveling home I met still another “low-flying blue lights” car with his four tires almost off the ground headed up the street by the Methodist church.
While this reporter knows the importance of police, I sincerely recommend and pray that this won’t happen through town again. At the rate of speed that these vehicles were traveling, we and they are very lucky that they arrived upon the scene they were traveling to in one piece!
“Blue lights,” we need your help but please be more careful as you carry out your duties.
