Most of these entries I write the next day just because I get most mornings free.
So Saturday was a cake walk. I took enough psychology classes in college that I could have easily double majored. I really found the stuff interesting. So when days like today happen I guess I have an edge over a lot of people in the same situation.

However, I still don’t understand people that are afraid to fly. I love to fly. But this woman I drove on Saturday (as sweet as she is) has an extreme phobia of planes. Hell, She freaks out if she gets too close to the airport. I mean freaks out!!!!! She physically will break down if she were to be in a busy airport.
But any way.
I got the info Thursday that I would be driving Mrs. Smith (Not the real name).

She is a little old widow who lives here in town. We drive her from time to time when she has friends in town or a special occasion. Here’s the kicker. When the girl in the office gave me her info it said to drive her to a city 5 hours away!!!!!!!!! (Deathly afraid to fly!!!!)

I give the woman a lot of credit, her fear doesn’t stop her from seeing her friends and doing whatever the hell makes her happy. She’ll hire a driver and away she goes. God I just hope she doesn’t need to go to the other side of the country. Anyway. I picked her up at the prescribed time and put her stuff in the trunk of the limo. She jumped in the back and away we went.

I do kind of like the lady she’s a very genuine person, she lives alone and my guess is she likes having people to talk to. She is very grandmotherly. She got in the car and slid all the way to the front so she could talk to me thru the privacy window while we were driving.

And talk we did. We went through the normal stuff,
How did I get into this business?
How did I meet the Gangster?
How she thinks he's the sweetest man on the planet!!!!!
Girl friends?
College?
We even talked about some sports.

My favorite topic with her was by far history. This has woman lived thru her husbands WWII service, the depression, the beginning of color TV, JFK being killed, Her only son was killed in Vietnam, Nixon, etc, etc, etc.

The 5 hours blew by.

She’s such a sweet old lady she had even packed us a cooler of food.

Anyway, It was a long week but came to a perfect end.

Crash Out!
