Most of you who know me know that I lived in one of the largest and busiest subdivisions in Tennessee. We were located on one of the main routes into the massive subdivision (nearly 8000 homes) and always had a constant stream of cars zooming past the driveway — typically moving much faster than the 25 mph speed limit!

We walked the length of our street twice and never saw a car. This small act would have been unimaginable at our old house. Here’s a pic:
