Oh I feel so bad

Hi everyone out in the web world, I have been so wrapped up in the backyard and all the construction plus the new quilts I am doing I haven't had time to do much else. I did a demo at the most wonderful quilt shop I have ever been into. The owner is a gem and it is really a fabric lovers heaven. They had their anniversary sale today and the turn out was huge. There was four of us doing some sort of demonstration. I revealed my newest patterns and did an applique demonstration. I used Michael Miller fabric on this quilt, I love the bright fun colors! The link is too their blog, a new venture for them but some great projects already up. I got them in a fat quarter package that was bundled at a show, I fell in love with the color combination. It reminded me of my room growing up as a teenager, it was hot pink and lime green! Crazy man. Unfortunately I only got a fat quarter of each so had to do a scrappy border, which now everyone wants. It was a fun day even if Jennifer had to tag along much to her dismay. She hoped to go shopping with her sister but plans changed and she had to hang with me today. I met a bunch of great people and got some good infomation.
But.... there is just one thing. As I was driving home I noticed a women in her 40-50's pulling up along side of me. I noticed she had on gloves, driving gloves. I have noticed these people off and on through out the years and I have always wondered WHY? Do they think that they don't have a good enough grip on the wheel without them? Are they planning some wild driving episode soon and just incase someone cuts them off they are ready? I just don't get it, and the people wearing them are not who you would think would be wearing them. I mean, they don't look like a proffesional race car driver. So I pose this question to anyone out there that wears these gloves, WHY? I would love to know more about the need to do this. It requires alot of thought and effort to put on and take off your gloves everytime you drive somewhere. I am in and out of the car so much I couldnt' imagine having to take clothing off and on each time. I would be chaffed for sure!!! Besides, its not like you can just leave them on and run into the super market or the bank, they might mistake you for a robber. We all remember the problems that O.J. had regarding his gloves, whether they fit or not. I find it so funny, a laugh out loud moment when a 50 year old women in a dress pulls up next to me with driving gloves on, in a van. LOL Hey, wait a minute, I am 50, how about a 70 year old instead. LOL Well really anyone wearing gloves that shouldn't be. I mean this is a part of a proffessional drivers clothing, not to be worn without driving skills. These gloves even have the little holes at the knuckles and the fingers cut out, wow. No one should have this much time on their hands.

If you were in Phoenix or Yuma, it would be to keep your hands from burning, in the summer. Otherwise, I can't think of any reason in warm weather.
