Fair play, I'm legally blind and SHOULD NOT drive by all reasons 'sane', BUT
it is a necessity, so maybe I can flout the law and drive anyway! After all,

BTW, Yes, riding a horse was a privilege, you had to AFFORD the horse, Try
stealing one...they shoot ya fer thet, thar! but even today *I* could do
that because the HORSE can see where we're going, even if I can't....<G>
