I have three daughters who are enthusiastically striving to do their part to help the economy by investing in local professional services. Two of the three are blondes and to some people that wouldn’t matter but it might explain how they have chosen to do their part; each in their own special way.
You see they have chosen to help the economy one car at a time that is….. each one takes turns careening their car into various objects thereby circulating my money amongst the local auto mechanics, car salesmen, collision specialists, nurses and yes…….even doctors.

Each of my daughters has had at least one kamikaze incident in the last 12 months but the two blondes are fighting it out for the leading contributor for the local investments. My oldest, a blonde has two kills and the youngest; also a blonde has four kills respectfully. One more kill and she will be an Ace, the first in the county.

Her weapon of choice is a 97 Saturn, affectionately known as “Ironman”; which now looks like her grandma’s patchwork quilt displaying various colored replacement panels from multiple engagements with enemy transport. The maroon Saturn earned the nickname of “Ironman” after having had an entire gold colored front end clip installed shortly after her 2nd kill taking on the colors of the comic book super hero. We are now debating changing the name to “Phoenix” or “Lazarus” but I’m told its “bad luck” to change names on transport.

You wouldn’t think that such a thing would be environmentally friendly but it is! By scouring various junkyards and landfills for obsolete parts they have removed potentially harmful toxic metals from the environment and putting them where they belong…..On the road .

I’ve been informed thru my daughters actions I am helping to employ (37) citizens alone. If everyone would just do their part, just think of what we could do!

No one was hurt in any of the incidents. Although the last one was just two days ago and my middle daughter driving the fire engine red Saturn got her bell rung.

I suspended the driving privileges of the Ace for (6) weeks, removed the radio and yanked her cell phone. I just finished putting the Ironman back together again. She currently may only drive to work to and from work.

Oy vey! Pics like this make me glad I only have cats! :D

I'm pretty good at screwing up my car too & I can't even blame it on youth. Maybe on creeping age but not youth anymore.:D

And don't get me started on that whole "accident forgiveness" thing. Accident forgiveness my Aunt Fanny. Try having more than one in 5 years & see how "forgiving" they are. Worst part is every accident I've had has been my fault. :(

Severely Stupid Driving: I was in High School riding with a car-load of other members of our track team , going to a meet. We were crammed into a 57 Chevy 4-door, the Teacher was driving it was his car.
He was only going 45-50 MPH, he swung out to pass a very slow moving car, but it was on a hill, marked " No Passing" Nobody could see over the hill, anything could have been coming to hit us head-on at any speed.
I was sitting in the back seat. I said:"This will be interesting!"
The Teacher swiveled his head around to look right at me, completely taking his eyes from the road and said, "What did you say?"
I saw the teacher maybe 10 years ago, he's still alive. Maybe he just limits how much he drives to stay like that?

If my daughters first attempts at driving the racetrack go-carts at disney, or the 12V ride on we bought my son are any indication of her future driving abilities, I may be calling you for fatherly advice in a few years.

Soooo, since it seems that the economy in this particular area is being well attended to already, can you tell me EXACTLY which roads/highways/thoroughfares to completely, utterly avoid, errrrr I mean that don't currently require any economic stimulus? ;)


(glad to hear that everyone is OK!)

I have never had a wreck, that was my fault, at least. Right after my 2nd daughter was born I had taken her to her check up. I had both my daughters in tote. It was,raining pretty hard. I really can't remember what led up to it, I just remember the car in front of me getting in another lane and all of a sudden there is a cement truck pulling out in front of me. I slammed on my breaks, but hydroplaned. I had a split second to act fast, and luckily I swerved enough to clip the side of the truck. I hit it and then hit barriers which stopped my car. I don't want to imagine if I had not thought and hit him head on 40 mph :( my car, a 1997 grand am, had just a gash in the drivers side and it smashed my door in to where I could not get out.

I still drive fast tho....I have had issues going 70 in a 55 in the country. I'm trying to stop. :-/

So Flo at Progressive is not even you guys a deal now? How about that pick your price deal???
I laughed so hard with your great depiction.
You got ME thinking. My oldest son (not a blonde haha) just started to drive (has the license finally - 2nd try) and debating whether to spend $2k or so and get him a car and let him bang it up. OR we buy a better used car, my oldest drives our ' 97 4- runner, and my hubby drives the newer car until he gets more experience or goes off to college. Which ever comes first...hmmmm

Fair warning ....my youngest "crash" .....flunked her first try at getting her license......That was the first warning sign.....The second was prolly the instructor begging me not to let her get a drivers license....Crazy to see a grown man break down like that . I' m sure it could happen to anyone.
