Some Day We Will Laugh About This

Well want you look a here? There’s another day to celebrate. I love these kind of days. They can be so much fun and bring many laughs. So this day is “Some Day We Will Laugh About This”. Do you have one of those moments in your life? Well I sure do. We laugh now but we were NOT laughing then. When I was about 13 or 14, I took my mother’s car for a spend through mother and daddy’s pecan orchard. Now I had learn to drive about the age of 11. Mother and Daddy wanted me to learn early because of my sister’s terrible driving record. So by 13 or 14, I was pretty dog gone good at driving. Well it was on a Saturday and mother was getting ready to go to work at my aunt’s restaurant, Blackbeard’s. She was in the house getting ready and I took it for a spin. My friend, Allison Elam was with me and she had learned at an early age to drive also. So we both could drive good. Well I was spinning around those trees like a pro. Allison was waiting for me to get back when mother came out the garage door and said “ Where’s Lynn, Where’s my car”… about that time I come around and saw her and I pulled right to her and slammed on those breaks. Boy did she look mad so I locked the doors and got out on the other side so I could get a running start. Oh boy she was past mad… BUT she did not spank me nor put me on restriction for any of my fun things so I thought I was good UNTIL she said I could not drive for a month! I think my heart skipped two or three beats. Do you know how terrible that was?? It was awful. We lived in the big ole country, Gordy and I could drive to my grandma and grandpa Dupree’s anytime I wanted but I didn’t for that month and when I got my privileges back, I NEVER broke the rules of driving again. We laugh now but I was NOT laughing then and neither was my mother!
