Driving Through Town in my New Mustang

Guest post written by Thad Newsome

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is take my car out for a spin with the windows down, just driving around the back roads of my town. I used to do this all the time when I just needed a moment to clear my head.

Now that I’m retired, I decided to splurge on a gift for myself—a new Mustang convertible. Now I’ve been able to go out for several relaxing drives, top down, enjoying the wind on my face and the sounds of nature. There’s really nothing better.

Well, somewhere down the line, I realized that my hearing isn’t quite what it used to be—especially when I’m driving around. At first I thought it had something to do with the whipping wind from the convertible top being down, but then I started noticing it even when I wasn’t driving. I decided to go to a nearby Miracle Ear location to see if they could figure out what was wrong. Turns out, my hearing had been on the decline for a while and I really needed hearing aids. I got them right there on the spot and, let me tell you—my drives have increased tenfold ever since!
