Herself: Swam, rode with Lenora and took her to lunch, scanned pictures and worked on poetry submissions.
My Babylonian Captivity: Chapter November 8 through November 14: Do stop in and read Tugster's experience as a human shield. He writes that, “ i was captured in kuwait (where i was teaching in the kuwaiti air force)….”
Left turn, another left turn and off we went following some poor candidate. The guy ahead of us drove way too slowly. No turn signals. You should have heard the two of us critiquing his techniques. Poor young man….we didn’t think he passed.
We went back and followed a second young man. He turned the same direction. Left, left, and a right into heavy traffic. Why they then had both men move to the left lane then move back into the right lane, I don’t know. The second man got stuck behind a bus with his rear into traffic, but he was able to easily move by the bus and back to the test. He had confidence behind the wheel where the first man didn’t.
We saw no parallel parking, but I can parallel park a pickup truck. They made both young men back up. I hadn’t seen that before, but it is something I do all the time to get out of the driveway. Lenora said that they don’t want you to use just your mirrors, that you also have to look over your shoulder. I can do this. Lastly, the examiner had to testee turn left from a stop sign onto one of San Diego’s busiest streets. That was a choice test.
Best of all, I took notes. In G’s company, Sunday I will drive a couple of times around the circuit. Although they announced that those being tested after an illness would take a more complicated test, I think I will keep it simple.
