How many times have you been out driving and had some fool driver cut you off or nearly run you off the road or run a red light? Every time this happens I say “Where are the police when you need them?”
Well today the police were right there and thank God, they reacted in a flash and got the guy or gal. We were coming home from a short trip to Walmart. We were second in line at the light at US I and Lyngate, we got the green arrow to go, the car in front of us did a U turn onto US I south and as we pulled out to go down Lyngate a car come across US I from the other side of Lyngate (Tiffeny) like a bat out of hell. If the car ahead of us had not made the U turn he would have been hit broadside. Norman put on the brake and before we could move or think a police car came flying across with lights flashing. We followed and the police got the fool driver pulled over about a block down the street. I could not see if it was a man or a woman but it looked like there were kids in the car so I bet it was a woman taking her kids to either school or a day car as there are both down that street. I was so glad the police were there and reacted so fast, any fool who tries to catch the clock with the speedometer is just an accident waiting to happen and that was one they stopped.
We are home and settled down, safe and sound and thankful to be here!! Have a great day.
About Carol (Ouma) Petts
I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
