Carol Perkins: Knocking off mirrors on SUV's

"Even with sensors," Carol says, "mirrors are never far from danger"
Next earlier column: Carol Perkins: Grandson Luke & his rich KY musical ancestry

By Carol Perkins

Our son Jon takes his kids and Carla's son J.C. on a road trip each summer, visiting baseball parks and attending professional games. Last year, they went to Chicago, and this year to Cleveland to see the Indians vs. the Yankees, visit the Rock'n Roll Hall of Fame, down to Cincinnati for a Reds' game and then to Kings' Island. Being outnumbered by boys, Eme brought a friend, so Jon had five kids to keep track of under the age of fourteen. (His wife came for the Cincinnati game and King's Island.) Guy went last year but vowed he'd rather have a tooth pulled than go to Kings' Island. "Have fun," he smiled as they drove off without him.
