Our blog name often gets comments and giggles, especially from full-time RV’ers like us. They know that it is usually one person who gets the duty of driving. In our case, Mike gets that honor. We would have never made it safely outside our hometown, if I was in charge of the driving. So, the name, “Driving Miss Terry” is not only appropriate for our trips to each new location, but also for the side trips once our RV is parked. Since we started our full-time adventure, I have had a personal chauffeur—such as in the movie, “Driving Miss Daisy”
BUT, we did not originate the name. My sister-in-law, Barb, and her husband, Jerry, are both famous for coming up with funny names and jokes about their lifestyle. Jerry often takes pot-shots at Barb (and Barb does not hold back with her barbs back to Jerry), and jokes about his quest to “please her”. No, it was Jerry who joked about driving Barb around the country in their motorhome as, “Driving Miss Daisy”.
Mike really got a chuckle about the reference, most likely since it was at his sister’s expense. So, he began referring to our travels as “Driving Miss Terry”. Not unlike Jerry, he likes to torment. And the name stuck.
Thanks Barb and Jerry for the material! Cannot wait to see you guys when we are in town in May.
