Flashback....Driving Miss Daisy....


In honor of Driving Miss Daisy playing on Broadway with Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones I thought I would share this one again.....this is a story I posted in May of '09. Enjoy....it still makes me giggle. =)
One of the things I love about my husband is, he always makes me laugh. He must have been a comedian in a former life because he is hilarious! There is not a day that goes by that he doesn't make me crack up in one way or another. Let's just say, most days I never know what I am going to get! Some days it drives me crazy, but I love that about him....it's just him. On one of the particularly funny days, we were visiting my parents in Lake Oswego, Oregon. We needed to run errands so we borrowed my Dad's car to go to the grocery store. Of course Jamie drove because he does not like me driving if he is in the car. I am a great driver by the way so I don't know what the issue is! So anyway, we get to the grocery store and pull into the parking lot. I just needed to run in and pick up a couple of things so Jamie said he would wait in the car. As I am getting out of the car (which happens to be a luxury car, and this only matters because of what comes next) Jamie sticks his head out of the window, and in his best Southern accent, with a huge smile on his face, says, "Okay Miss Daisy I'll be sittin' right here waitin' for ya! You be careful now Miss Daisy!" I almost died! The parking lot was full of people walking around, and remember we were in Lake Oswego, Oregon...not exactly a melting pot. I think I turned 500 shades of red and Jamie just sat in the car cracking up while people stared at us! Hilarity at it's best! Once in a while when we are in just the "perfect area," he will pull this lovely little comedic rabbit out of his hat for a re-run, and each time I am just as embarrassed, and each time it is just as funny! Next time I'm driving! =)

Having met Jamie I so can see him doing this. He is a joyful teddy bear of a guy.

Madge,

Oh yes this is one of his many humorous things that he does with me! I'm so glad that you two finally got to meet. And yes he is a big teddy bear. Funny how so many people are scared of him. =)

Hugs...A.

Great story. This is James and I am really trying to learn to have a great sense of humor when in situations like this. I must admit at times when in these environments I still feel a bit nervous.

Wyatt,

I'm glad you have a sense of humor about this because having fun is what it's all about. Don't ever feel nervous and don't ever worry about what other people think. If Jamie and I worried about what other people thought we would have been split up a long time ago. Go with your love, have fun, and live a long happy life together!

Thanks for reading!

Thanks Amy, I am getting much better at letting other people's promblem remain their problem and not mine.

Don't know if you and Jamie have been to Aliso Creek yet but it is a favorite spot of ours.

Great place to relax and take photos.

Janka,

That is exactly it....their problem. As Jamie always says, "What matters is us, and if people have issues with us that's their problem not ours." We just live our lives in love and go from there. =)

I checked out the site link that you shared. Thank you! I commented on your site.

Happy happy Thanksgiving! Have a great holiday with your hubby!
