I had an idea of what to blog about a little while ago but now I don't know what it was. I am sure it was something that would have been entertaining, interesting, or fascinating (pick one) to you readers but we'll never know now.
I was watching some shows that we recorded last evening and one of them gave me an idea but now I've lost the apperently tenuous hold I had on it and it is just gone. That's been happening to me a lot lately. I could chalk it up to old age... which reminds me of an old joke:
If you forget where you left your keys, that's normal.
But if you forget you own a car, that's the time to worry.
Of course, you'd have to have the presence of mind to worry, wouldn't you? And it isn't likely you'd have that at that point.
Oddly enough, I have not forgotten where I've parked my car in large parking lots but I know what to do if I ever do... press the "panic" button on the key fob, that sets off the horn and flashes the car's lights so you can find it. I suspect that is the primary purpose of that button and not to draw other's attention to you because you're being mugged or something.
My key fob has a lot of functions:
- Start the car (lock it first, even if it is locked already) then press the remote start button twice (only had to press it once for my Lucerne).
- Lock and unlock the doors.
- Unlock the trunk. Also has to be pressed twice.
I need to test the GPS function but I don't have a need for it now. And it is hard to get lost trying to find how to get to a city, just hop on a freeway which will take you to it. A little too easy, if you ask me. I need to head north to I-10 to go west and that means I must find a route to I-75. But we haven't taken a long trip anywhere in a few years so it will likely never get used.
So, this is my post for today. Hope you enjoyed it. I would suggest you never get old but that sounds more like a curse.
