what i've learned along the way
Shaking my head and sighing . . .

This is a pointless post. I have no idea why I felt the need to share this very insignificant happening. I'm only twenty seven. I shouldn't be writing crap like this . . . my teachers must have been right. I do have an old soul.

On my way home from school today, I encountered an interesting sight. A young boy who looked to be around eleven years old zoomed down the back roads of Crowley, Texas on his bicylcle. I noticed him as I approached a looming curve, and I glanced up just in time to see him swerving towards the center lane. He seemed a tad distracted, and as I my eyes darted in his direction, I realized why riding his bike appeared so laborious. The boy had one hand on the handle bar and a CELL PHONE glued to his left ear!

What is this world coming to?

Where are the traffic cops when you need them - they could have given him a ticket for riding without "due care and attention" or something equally good.

His boss was probably on the line lecturing him about an important deadline.

Good thing you were alert! I had to call out to two girls riding their bikes around yesterday evening when I got home. They were having fun but I gently reminded them to watch out for cars going in and out. A bunch of young neighbors were about to pull out and I stopped to make sure they were ok. The best part of it is when I told them to be careful they politely smiled and said thank you. Isn't that great? Kids who didn't cuss at an adult!

doesn't surprise me! One time in Knoxville Jason and I saw a man driving down the street in a John Deere Tractor talking on his cell phone. I sooooooo wish I would've had a camera!!
