Happy Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday. I do hope none of you have forgotten to at least buy a card. In honor of the holiday, here are some thoughts and tidbits concerning mothers and driving. It should be stated that in my wanders across the web I found a disturbing number of news stories relating to awful mothers doing the unthinkable to their children and involving a vehicle. I have left all of that out. This article concerns affection, both to and from mothers everywhere.

We’ll start with the advice that our mother’s always gave us before we left the house,
“Always wear clean underwear in case you’re in an accident.”

Of course there are several things wrong with this advice. If you are in an accident there is no guarantee that your underwear will be clean afterwards, even if it was before. Also, the people at the hospital are probably not very concerned with the state of your under garments when they are trying to save your life. If you think about it too hard you begin to question your mother’s priorities. When the police call to say you’ve been in the predicted accident, you hope your mother’s first question would be “Is he ok?” and not “Was his underwear clean?”

Henry Ford’s mother’s name was Mary Ford (pictured above) and she was the youngest child of Belgian immigrants who died when she was young. She was adopted by neighbors. She died in childbirth when Henry was 12. He was expected to carry on the family farm, but he stated, “I never had any particular love for the farm—it was the mother on the farm I loved.”


Observation: A mother’s role is to deliver children once obstetrically and by car forever afterwards.

Happy Mother’s Day!
