It’s Tuesday Halloween at dVerse,
and Bjorn asks us to speak of monsters,
goblins and our worst fears.  I’ve delved
deep, and revealed my most dread fear of all.

Deep behind my smiling face
And confident exterior
There lurks a secret thing I fear
There’s truly nothing fearier
It’s of the day my children meet
And in terror I hear them say
She’s a danger to self and others
We must take her car keys away!



  1. Ha, ha ... yes that's true... and it can be sad too we took my mother's car away when she started to suffer from dementia... mostly because she could go driving in the middle of the night and get lost.

  2. I bet my children think that of me. I'm not demented, I know I can't drive :)

  3. I just know my kids have this in their plans for me. Hilarious! 😂😂

  4. This is a fear many of us in the winter of our lives dread. Nice take on the prompt. With my disability, my driving is pretty iffy and defensive. One day I may give my keys up voluntarily.

  5. Ha ha! I know this scenario and fear that the same will be said about me - one reason I try not to drive in the dark.

  6. I liked "nothing fearier". I try not to drive anyway.

  7. Haha! You always find a funny way through the door, Beverly.

  8. Oh Bev this hits home! Years ago I had to get rid of our car so my husband wouldn't drive it - dementia too.
    I do so hope you have your keys forever!
    Anna :o]

  9. Oh yes, may I never hear those words, not for ablong time anyways.

  10. not a looking-forward-to-day im sure
    Clever write Bev

    much love...
