I was going to work Saturday night, just cruising up the highway, had the radio on and all of a sudden 'whhhhomp', all I seen was something big and bloody in the middle of the road. And all I could hear was my muffler...loud..very very loud. So I pulled over and looked back and seen what I was sure hoping was a deer. It was so mangled I couldnt tell. But it was in the middle of a State Route so I was pretty sure it was. I had to go back home and get another car so I went to my brothers house, he is a retired Leiutenent from the State Patrol. I told him what happened and he said ' Are you sure it was a deer?' I said lets go back and look and make sure, so we did. By the time we got there it was kind of scattered all over the road from people running over it. We went back to his house so he could look at my car, the muffler system was laying almost on the ground. At first when I heard it after I hit the deer I was afraid somehow it got hooked onto the bottom of my car. I was thankful it was a deer and not a body but I felt so bad about the deer. Needless to say I was late for work.
One time my Mother was taking my Aunt to the store. My Mom was in her robe b/c she wasnt getting out of the car. Our Mailman had a big dog that followed him all around town everyday while he delivered the mail. Well...my Mom hit that dog and killed it. She was so upset and crying that she forgot all about being in her robe and there she is in the middle of the street screaming and crying ! It taught her not to be going around in her robe.
When I was in high school one of my girlfriends and I were cruising around town in her car. We were probably 16. She hit a little boy. He ran right out in front of us. All I can remember is seeing him bounce around on the hood. Thank God he was not hurt real bad, although we didnt know that at the time ...my girlfriend and I were terrified...we sat in the car and cried. When I think about that time I still get upset..it happened so fast. Summertime is here....kids will be running about, sometimes not paying attention. Be careful.....it can happen so fast. Watch for the kids!
Another beautiful day today ~ I hope the rain is gone for a while.
Lets Talk.. Catch at 12:30 AM
