A Stretch Limo In The Country
It was just a strange sight today when we went across town to one of John's old rent properties. Backed up to the red barbeque place was a looong white stretch limo. Must have been an important celebration. We have no wine and dine fancy pancy places to eat so I guess the limo made them feel special and there is nothing wrong with that. I have had occasion to ride in a shiny black limo twice in my life and to be perfectly honest I felt a little silly. The first time was a ride I would have rather not taken. It was from my house to my husband's funeral and it was included in the funeral plan we had paid for and didn't remember the limo was included. Oh well it was included so we may as well use it and be as comfortable as possibe. The second time I will tell all if I ever start a private blog. Speaking of vehicles we had quite a car chase in our neighborhood late this afternoon. I went out to fill my bird feeder and a small car came around the corner on two wheels with a young woman behind the wheel. In hot pursuit was a young man in another small car. He tried to pass her two or three times in the short distance from the corner to the more main street. She held her own and stayed in the middle of the street and didn't let him pass as he was trying to do. Cars parked on either side of the street made it quite dangerous since there are kids at time playing basketball at the curb and one little girl rides her scooter near the curb. They made a sharp corner without stopping at the stop sign and headed north. I was surprised when I came out later they were both parked at the end of our street and the police were paying them a visit.
