My dad drove me to the hospital to deliver his first granddaughter, we went down country roads in a 4x4 Jeep no doors and seat belt wouldn’t wrap around me , he hit the tracks on 75th street and I almost fell out. I told the dr he tried to kill me and me and dad have laughed about that for 42 years. Love my DAD❤️❤️❤️
