Mrs.Jones was over eighty,but she still drove her old car like a woman half her age.She loved driving very fast,and was proud of the fact1 she had never,in her thirty-five years of driving,been punished2 a driving offence(犯规，犯法).
Then one day she nearly3 her record.A police car4 her,and the policemen in it saw her5 a red light without stopping.Of course,she was stopped.It seemed6 that she would be punished.
7 Mrs.Jones came up to the judge,he looked at her seriously and said that she was8 old to drive a car,and that the9 why she had not stopped at the red 10 was most probably that her eyes had become weak 11 old age,so that she had simply not seen it.
When the judge had finished what he was12,Mrs.Jones opened the big handbag she was13 and took out her sewing.Without saying a word,she14 a needle with a very small eye,and threaded it at her first attempt.
When she had15 done this,she took the thread out of the needle again and handed16 the needle and the thread to the judge,saying,“Now it is your17.I suppose you drive a car,and that you are quite sure about your own eyesight.”
The judge took the18 and tried to thread it.After half a dozen tries,he had still not succeeded.The case(案例)against Mrs.Jones was19,and her record 20 unbroken.
