10 and 2 or 9 and 3?

 I didn't put many miles on my car in 2020. 

As I was thinking about this while driving, I remember that we had Driver's Ed in high school, way back in the day. I think my driving teacher was Dave Holland, who was also the main-man football coach. 

I don't think any high schools (private or public) offer Driver's Ed at all these days. You've got to pay somebody to teach you to drive. Too much liability for the schools.

What got me thinking...is that we were told to drive with 2 hands on the steering wheel, and I believe we were told to put them at 10 and 2 o'clock. 

These days the steering wheels are designed for 9 and 3 o'clock. 

I was driving around the Naval Air Station
and I found this sign on the side of a building!
Never knew that the airfield was 14 feet above sea level.
Maybe less than that due to climate change.

I do like watching the 'big event' race car driving on TV. How close they come to other cars.... how quickly the teams change the tires...how the drivers weave their way in and out of traffic (i.e. other cars). How the drivers downshift and upshift. 

I can see that cars do donuts all over the NAS. Those cars, drivers, leave their marks most anywhere they want. 

Then I started thinking about our 50th high school reunion which was supposed to take place this last summer? I declined to be on the steering committee for that event (and I told my friend who was in charge that I wouldn't be going to our 50th reunion). 

Now, I don't want to be known as prescient. But if it didn't take place because of Covid...will they have it next year? I'm not sure. But if it's been put on hold...I'm still not going.
