  • Use your turn signal in life

    A couple of weeks ago my son earned a “uniform citation” for failing to use his turn signal.
    At the time I thought how trivial and wondered why such a citation was necessary.
    I’m sure there’s a life lesson in there somewhere... much like the “always use sunscreen” lyrics from the late 1990s that was delivered as a graduation speech and later became the basis for a song.
    Always use your turn signal.

    They’re called Crosses of Mercy, three tall crosses — two pale blue and one gold — planted across at least 29 states and Washington, D.C., plus Zambia and the Philippines.
    Where I live in Florida, I’ve seen several sets of them and I’ve always wondered about them since they don’t seem to be connected to any one church. They’re usually out in the middle of nowhere, randomly planted on the highway.
