Traveling on the interstate this weekend? Sat, 05/27/06 9:39 AM (permalink)
Go Gramps

A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out
of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph,
enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

"Amazing!" he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal to the
metal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind him,
blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

"I can get away from him - no problem!" thought the elderly nutcase as
he floored it to 100mph, then 110, then 120mph. Suddenly, he thought,
"What on earth am I doing? I'm too old for this nonsense!". He pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the Trooper to catch up with him.

Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the driver's side of
the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30
minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason why you were
speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."

The man, looking very seriously at the Trooper, said, "Years ago, my
wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing
her back."

"Have a good day, Sir," said the Trooper

    This one is all to true in the Boston area...

    Gramps went out shopping. Granny was listening to the radio and heard that a driver was travelling in the wrong direction on Route 3.

    She called Gramps on his cell phone to warn him. "Someone's driving the wrong way!" he said, "they all are."

        Driving and seeing new places is the most fun I can have besides finding a roadfood kind of place. I have driven on every interstate system there is and many back roads. I have driven in all 50 states and I take a magic marker and color the roads that I have been on.

        A new road is a new experience.
