Thanks for the memories!

As usual Lori, you can take something so mundane as carpool and make me cry thinking about it. I was always grateful for carpool as a Mom who worked outside of the home as it was such an enormous help to us. Now that my youngest is learning to drive, I know my carpool days are limited and it does make me sad (and of course happy too). I always loved being quiet and listening to the conversations - like a (big) fly on the wall!

chesed, yes.

..... and a good way to judge character too!. We used to add to the mishna that says : It is easy to see the character of a person "b'keeso, b'koso, ub"kaaso" - by his money (or it) by his "cup ( when he's had a bit too much of it) and when he is angry. To that we added "b'Kar pool loso" ...(when you have to carpool with him ...or her. Pleasure doing carpool with you..way back when.

The end of an era for now.

Don't be surprised if you are asked to assume carpool duty when you become grandparents! Wouldn't THAT be wonderful?! Then you can create all new memories. May you have lots of beautiful grandchildren!
