Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day two hundred and thirty-two of that project.

This quilt block shows a square building with a square roof. The building is a light tan, and the roof a very dark brown. On the roof is a light yellow sign with the words, "Driving School" written on it in pen. Below that is another sign, this one showing a blue car with white stitching outlining it. Below that is a dark brown door the same shade as the roof, and a large almost black sign with a gray upper case L in it. This is all against a blue salmon-patterned background.

Driving school.

In commonwealth countries people who are learning to drive must have a sticker on their license plates with a capital L on them. That lets everyone know that the car with that sticker may contain someone learning to drive.

When I was 15 my high school taught driver’s education. A regular class we went to every day for several weeks.

We had a Driver’s Ed car that had pedals on both sides. It was considered a life skill. Of course, back in the dark ages we also had Home Economics and Shop.

By the time my sons came through the same school system, Driver’s Ed was a thing of the past. There were two brothers in town that taught people to drive. I loved it.

I taught my oldest son, poor thing. Stressful for both of us. So when son number 2, 3 and 4 needed to learn I struck a deal with the teachers.

In exchange for teaching each of them to drive I raised and had a hog processed. Worked out well. They had fresh farm pork for 3 years and I didn’t have to teach anyone else how to drive.
