      I wish I had them.
      1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks.

      The rest are caused by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

      I can't help but miss the time when women mostly wore dresses and skirts. Looking feminine has become passe, and it's a shame. Vive la difference.

      This is my buddy Randy's scooter. Looks identical. He took it apart as a teenager and put it back together when he was in his mid-'40s.

      It's wonderful to see him cruising up and down our street with his 8 year old with him. Wish I had had a cool dad.
