Did you ever drive in Cape Coral,Fla? Probably not. The streets are a chaotic network with names that are repetitive and confusing. For example there is NE 12th Ave, NE 12th Court, NE 12thPlace, NE 12th St. and NE 12th Terrace. Even my Garmin GPS shut down while trying to find a restaurant over there. Eileen’s phone-based GPS saved the day. Our car has a built-in GPS, but it’s too scary to operate.
So we finally reached our destination, but we had to park in a large lot adjoining a strip mall which had a STOP sign within. And that’s when we looked up and saw the light show.
When I was in medical school, I would get to assist during surgery, but only to tug on retractors so that the surgeon could get a good look. One surgeon was never satisfied that I was pulling hard enough and he would say, “Lift up thine eyes unto the Lord, my boy!” I always remembered his kindly advice, and it finally came in handy in a parking lot in Cape Coral, Fla La Land.
