* JUST PLAIN SILLY *

Since it's winter and I do quite a bit of driving in the dark, the following funny quote, from one of my *favorite movies, always pops into my head:


State Trooper: Do you have any idea how fast you were going?

Del: Funny enough, I was just talking to my friend about that. Our speedometer has melted and as a result it's very hard to see with any degree of accuracy exactly how fast we were going.


You're probably asking yourself what this has to do with my driving...

Well, I think a couple of the tiny fuses that light up my dashboard have quit working, because for a few weeks now, I can only see how much gas is in the car! No other gauges are lit up, like if I need oil, or if my car is overheating, etc. Also, I have no idea how fast I'm driving (which is usually pretty darn fast!) or anything about the RPMs.

So, I just pretty much "go with the traffic flow" and hope for the best.

Now, that is just plain silly, isn't it??!!


*Oh, and the name of that movie.....

  3. You need to get that fixed, it will probably be cheaper than the fine you might get.

    That's one of the funniest movies ever made. "Laughs per minute", I think it probably is THE funniest. I have it on my 'Top 25 Favorite Movies list. I wouldn't know if it's on YOUR 'Top 25 Favorite Movies' list because... I haven't gotten a list from you.
