    Talking to teens: Driving

    Mom's driving lesson 1967

    My mother, Mary L. Murphy, did not learn to drive until she was 28. This was the era were kids could stand up behind the driver's seat. My brother was standing behind my mother; I was behind my father; my other brother was between us. Mom was learning to drive.

    The day was Easter Sunday 1967 and were were out on a driving lesson with mom and dad. 3 kids loaded up on chocolate - lots of it. Standing directly behind our parents.

    My father was explaining to mom "no matter what happens in the car be aware of where you are." My brother announces he doesn't feel so good. Dad repeated his verbal warning just as my brother brings up all that chocolate all over the back of mom's neck.

    I remember she got the car pulled over safely as my father announced quietly that mom had just passed her test. :-)

    (I am facing the camera in the photo; mom is across from me, the the brother with the upset stomach is not facing the camera. Photo was taken 1967.)
