Turning Right to go Left

I am not a person who enjoys driving a car however, I am grateful that I can get myself around to various places.  My friends have always teased me though on the fact that I do not like to make left hand turns and I do them rarely. 

I decided that my character DeMaris in my latest book Beg(ga)(he)r (www.jrarmstrong.net) needed a few quirks of her own so -- she also does not make left hand turns when driving.  Instead she makes 3 right hand turns.  It works just fine.

Imagine my surprise when I read a short article on the merits of skipping left turns and going to the right.  You save time, gas and money by not sitting idling in the left turn lane.  And it's also proven to cause less accidents.

I found my yellow quilt that has been missing for a few years and then realized it was a perfect fit for my book signing table.  Tried it out last week and found several people came over to look at it and talk to me about quilting and my books.  

This quilt was from a Block of the Month probably dating from the early 1990's.
