Fixin' Fence On Sunday?
I kept saying what a beautiful morning it was. It was until we got a call from the farm house renter saying someone had run through the fence with their car. Off with the church clothes and on with the jeans. Sure enough when we got there a cute (used to be cute) little car was totaled over the property line. Young girl driver was no where to be seen but her Mom and step Father were there to take responsibility. Real Father had picked her up and took her to his house. Humm no insurance, no driver's licence, drinking, drugs, speeding? Yes I'm the "doubting thomas". Step Father told me he had just bought this car for her and had it delivered to the school with a big red bow on top for her graduation present. Thank goodness she didn't have a passenger or they surely would have been killed. She went across the farm-to-market road into the ranch fence, sideswiped a tree on the passenger side, continued several feet and spun around before coming to a stop scattering car parts all along the way. Maybe she did fall asleep and it was all innocence. I hope she is okay and learned her lesson the hard way which could have been much harder. The longhorn cow is not John's, just the only picture I could find of a fence.
