I love her.

*
There used to be lots of quiet moments to myself. LOTS. One reason I will never marry again, I LIKE my own company and I LIKE quiet sedentary time in front of my computer or whatever.

There doesn't seem to be much of that alone time anymore. My mom looks forward to se
eing me, I'm her lifeline.

But I DO love the lady in my car.


If I had had the lady in my car when my kids were little maybe we would have gone more places, maybe I wouldn't have been so housebound and panicky about going places I was not familiar with.

The lady tells me where to turn, gives me the fastest route if I'm in a hurry or the one with the least use of highways if I'm not. She's always polite and she always knows where she's going.

I love her.

She takes care of me and asks nothing in return.
And if I make a mistake or don't listen she doesn't get aggravated she just finds a new way of getting me where I'm going. And right now with my brain as mushy as it is, it's nice to have one thing to hand off, to not have to worry about right now.

She really is a lovely lady, I'm telling you. I should introduce you.

I love that lady too, she has saved my bacon many times from getting seriously lost and like you say always polite lots of patience, what a sweetheart !
I spoke to my Mom's sister on the weekend, what a treat .... she thinks like my Mom use to, I found myself explaining something 10 different ways to get her to understand what I meant.... Lord I miss that... I miss my Mom...BettyJo its such a short time that you will have her, then trust me my friend you WILL miss your mother.Mom was high maintenanace and a general pain but she was mine and I miss her.
Take care of yours and hug her every time you see her.

What a clever idea you had for your post. I do not have a friend like yours, but there have been times I needed it.

We sometimes have John Cleese rather than a lady which is a hoot!

I'm still thinking about getting one!

We have one of those ladies as well, but sometimes, just sometimes she takes us a (what I call) a stoopid route!
