fast lanefast lane

Please give careful thought

To life lived in the fast lane.

Few want the results!


I went for the obvious today, but ….. What can I say?  I’m as near ninety as I am near eighty.  And my friend just had to go to the funeral of her 18 year old grandson.  Legal racing but he paid a high price.  No, my child, the fast lane seldom pays high dividends; it’s victims pay high dividends!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your friend’s lost. 😦

    Sorry for this loss. I’m s hard for us elders to understand the death of someone so young, but it’s all part of a greater plan.

    Thank you for your post. We are reeling here from the tragic death of young people. Legal racing and downright theft of cars and behaviour that is rebellious has taken the life of 12 year old here who was a passenger in the stolen car driven by an unlicensed 14 year old. Out on the highway a beautiful young mother and her four children aged 2-6 have died in a tragic head on collision. (questions are being raised here about alcohol, drugs and speed with truck driver involved.) We pray for the bereaved but also are praying for the return of scripture classes in our schools and foundational values in the home of the next generation. So much has been lost and life is fragile. High Living, High Life, High Pace of Life and little value to any of it if GOD is not included in the journey.

      Yes, Faye. You point out the tragedy that can come from sin, carelessness, and “living on the edge.” So sad. Our youth really are searching. The Holy Spirit is also. We pray they will connect.
