Here They Go

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Well it started out a normal day...
But you can guess the rest...

Some months ago a couple planned...
Planned a trip to celebrate...
Celebrate a 50th anniversary...
Plans were made months ahead...

The Mother who lived with them planned...
Planned to be with her son...
BUT son's wife became ill, cancer struck again...
and the plans when to...
Well you know where...



1 - Rock Fitness - New Design

So a friend of the couple stepped up...
“Yes” she said I will stay for two weeks...

Now the Mother is 90 years old but well...
Smart and able to care for herself...
Daughter just did not want her alone 24 – 7...

All was going so well...
Couple was gone...
BUT a notice from Honda arrived...
Now the Mother's car was at the grandson's...
Mother said, “Can we please take the car to...
To the dealer”.
Well OK we can do that...

Now they get to car and the friend ask...
“Who is going to drive?”
“My daughter always asks me if I want to drive”
Came her answer...
So they get in the car and off they go...
Now the Mother is not from this town...
So the friend is giving directions...
They get to the dealer...
The car gets fixed and they start out...

Mother wants to fill up with gas...
They stop at a station...
Mother has forgotten how to open the tank...
She gets out the book...
Tank gets filled... 

Now the friend asks, “ When was the last time
you drove?”
“Oh it was before I moved here.”
Hello, that was a year and a half ago...

Now the friend is thinking...
When the couple arrives home...
Oh my...
No one told her that the Mother was not...
Not driving...
No one mentioned the car...

Now the next day she wanted to drive to get...
Get it washed...
Oh my...
How did she get in this mess...
Some favors are more complicated than other...
Some get more strange as they go...

Instead of helping a friend...
She may had lost a friend...
Now does she take the car keys away...
It is her car...
No one told her what to do...

Oh My...what a mess...
Cancer enters lives and all plans go...
Go you know where...
