There was a sign entering the garage that said something like "The greatest drivers in the world walk through this gate."
Benny was in a playful mood, and said, "And the worst drivers in the world walk through that gate, too, don't they, Tommy?"
Seriously, I answered, "Benny, I'm a pretty good driver. I just don't drive fast."
We all laughed, Benny and me included.
I wish I had a picture of us in front of that sign, but there was no one there with a camera. And this was long before smartphones.
