So my Niece, Casey FINALLY got her Driver's License


She drives herself to work today for the very first time. So, after she gets off work, she meets her boyfriend at the Olive Garden for dinner.

They have dinner, upon leaving, the boyfriend turns onto Midlothian Turnpike, heads west and arrives home about 10 minutes later. He had told Casey he was going straight home but he came here instead.

Casey goes to the traffic light, makes a U-Turn and heads EAST on Midlothian. She drives all the way down to Providence Road, then decides since it was dark and supposed to rain that taking Providence Road wasn't such a good idea. Now, Turner Road is only 3 blocks away, a divided 4 lane highway that leads right to Hull Street and a safe drive home. Does she take it? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! She turns around and drives 8.5 miles back up Midlothian to Courthouse Road and proceeds to drive her Mom's car up to the house.

So, we're thinking about buying her a GPS, but then that would mean she'd have to KNOW how to use it.

So I guess we'll just alert the local authorities that she's on the streets.

Life goes on here on Courthouse Road.
