So, it was like May 21.
JWS was going to Florida to visit a sick friend.
He had a flight, a car, a hotel.
I was going to be home alone.
I had a list.
I was going to get so much done.
He is packed,
he is ready.
It is 2:00 and he is leaving at 3:30 for the airport,
when something in the way he asks me to go
for the 59th time,

Finally, I hopped on and took it for a little spin around the parking lot
and took off, right up A1A
and across a really high bridge
to the place it needed to go.
JWS and his buddy that kept circling to make sure I was ok?
Stopped at a 7-11 for a snack and lost me.
How do you lose someone going 10 miles an hour
on a handicapped scooter?
I don't know that you can view that video...
But I am sure with a little imagination you can picture it!
