Joanne, when I gave you the video camera to shoot the Shag going through the tunnel, you got confused by the on/off switch... which resulted in it being on when you thought it was off.
I heard you ask Irv to put on his belt and he refuse. (in addition to some choice words about me)
Carter has the tape now to use for the Homecoming video.
I hadn't thought much about it, but now you remind me.
What can I say? Irv should wear his seatbelt, he is a nice guy and I like him. If I knew, or know that he is not wearing it, I will not allow him on a cruise I lead. If not for himself, than for the other driver in an accident, so they should not have to have his death on their conscience.
Reading all these posts I have a new problem. My old roadster will come out of the shop in March (I hope) after many years of restoration. The car is a '72 and therefore has no airbags and comedy seatbelts. I have been in 3 accidents in that car, walked from them all, and was probably wearing the seat restraint- only a lap belt.
1- Skidded on ice into a guard rail
2- Avoided a deer- crashed into snow filled trough ( I thought it was flat, snow filled it and looked like it was level)
3- Rear ended at a stop light by a van (I don't have much luck with vans behind me)
Now I have to rethink driving my classic car
