Chocolate covered peanuts from Perry’s Nut House…for medicinal purposes only…. a sure cure for being the mother of a driver’s ed student back in the day.


How could I ever survive the next few hours.
I couldn’t stand it.

The pain was excruciating…

My chest felt like I was being stabbed.

I couldn’t catch my breath.

I waited and called to my husband

Could he possibly take my place…

I didn’t think I should leave the house

in case I needed to go to the hospital.

He just laughed and told me to get my act together.

“I have my act together!,” I exclaimed.

Our son came in the room and asked

who was going to be his licensed person in the car

for practice for his drivers test.
