My mother was a very determined woman. I remember the time she learned to drive a car. It was while we were living on Avon Avenue. She took lessons from a friend of mine and he used to take her out to drive on several occasions. Since she was a heavy woman, it was difficult getting in and out of a car. She finally had to give it up, and never got her license. Actually there was no need for her to get a license, since I was the driver in the family, and there was no need for another driver. But she was determined, and you can never say that she didn't drive a car.
