lost lady, find em

at a town near here a lady who lives in an assisted living home
got into her car and drove off and didnt come back
friends and family notified the police and
she got her car information put on those big highway signs on the

usually those are child abductions, lost children, or a lost old person

luckily she was found not too far away driving lost on a road near the
town where she lives
sometimes it doesnt work out this well

a few years ago a couple near here got into their car and just
they were an elderly couple
they were found 500+ miles away off a cliff in the hills of arkansas
where they had missed a curve on that winding road and had
gone over the cliff
they were accidentally found by a hunter/hiker

a family had lost both parents and grandparents because they
were lost and kept on driving

on the alzheimers association  website-www.alz.org-there is a
section on dementia and driving resource center at this link
if you have a family member who is at risk read this link
you may save their lives
dont be afraid of offending them

my wife she and i have an agreement that when my time comes that
she will take my keys away from me
am sure i wont resist

dont let them be the lost lady or lost man and get their names and
car license numbers on those signs on the internet

am glad not being able to parallel park is not on the list of warning signs

look at this picture and find the man in the picture

if you find him within 3 seconds your right brain is more
developed than most
if it takes less than 30 seconds your right brain is
developed normally
if it takes more than 60 seconds then your right brain
is slower to react

well guess im a left brain person
