What I see looking backwards

                                                      June 8, 2012

      This shot is a view from the driver’s seat. The horses are walking along the standing hay and I am watching the sickle bar. I am perched up upon the seat, driving the horses, keeping everything in line and watching for any danger in the cutterbar’s way. There is plenty to watch while holding a hand full of driving lines… I can’t even text anyone 😮

      Last night we went up town in the car. My wife was driving, but from where I was sitting everything looked different. I thought we were too close to stuff. I thought we should have waited before pulling out and I thought we were in the wrong lane. My wife was cool, calm and collected. The longer we rode, the cooler she got!

      I learned the view is much different from the driver’s seat. I didn’t learn to keep my mouth shut. I did learn that my wife is very tolerant. I also learned that I should drive when we go places, from behind the wheel, not while sitting in the passenger seat.

      I guess the lesson learned for me is this; when you have the best view, you make the best decisions. Once the information is assembled, executing the plan is easy. Lastly, being patient with the one driving, is always a good idea. After all, they have the benefit of seeing things from the driver’s seat 😮
