The Wall, Part Deux

In a previous post, I talked quite a bit about The Wall tat is being built along Highway 205 and how I hate the blessed thing.

You will be happy to know that The Wall now stretches from one end of this road way to the other--as of yesterday, it now spans 5-10 miles of a road that I already despised. I don't know how long the road is, actually. I am too intent on keeping the wheels of the bus between the white lines to worry about the actual distance!! I talked with my fellow morning driver the other day about it, and he put it quite succinctly when he said, "You suck the seat right up there every day when you have to pass someone..." !! Had to laugh, but he is right. I would love to put a blood pressure cuff on my arm some morning to see just how high it goes when I have to get in that dreaded left lane!

Of course, my experience with getting side-swiped a couple of weeks ago doesn't help any. Now whenever I have to pass a truck, I have to take a couple of deep breathes to steady my nerves, and then I watch the truck like a hawk to make sure he isn't going to swerve into me!

It's going to be an interesting couple of years. If I can make it through this, I can make it through anything!!
