    Hmmm. Bit difficult for someone to be able to watch out for something almost completely unspecified!

    Okay - she has her drivers permit and mom's car. She thinks she can back out the driveway while Mom is getting the mail. Postbox is at the end of the driveway. Need I say more?

    You mean to say, she hasn't volunteered to drive the car down the driveway to check for mail? Good an excuse as any and keeps Mom out of harms way!

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I learnt many years ago. When your daughter is learning to drive, don't stand in her way.

    When my daughters started driving we put the following sign in the car window:

    "If you don't like my driving, stay off the sidewalk!"

    Well, mom needs the exercise. Plus there's that opposable thumb thing to open the mailbox.
