Exciting morning!

We had an interesting morning. I heard a squeal of tires and looked out to see a blue car on our lawn heading towards the tree and narrowly, I mean by inches missing a car parked in the neighbour's driveway. Apparently a car backed out of the driveway across the street. A blue car which from the sounds of it was going too fast had to go between the lady backing out and a van coming the other direction. The blue car drove across our driveway, lawn and narrowly, I mean by inches, missed a parked car in the neighbour's driveway. The driver of the blue car turned the car around to chase the driver of the car who pulled out in front of him. The crossing guard said he was inches from her bumper and honked the horn. She didn't stop so he pulled along side of her.
He came back to apologize for tearing up our lawn. I told him I was more concerned with the kids walking along the street on their way to school. I checked on a teenager who was walking to see that she was ok.
When it happened all my 11 year old could say was "street racing".
Thank goodness no one was hurt.

Glad I came yesterday to visit or my truck might have been sitting on your driveway. Yes I am glad also that no one was hurt. See you soon,
