On December 1, 2008, among national economic uncertainty and no shortage of personal, internal turmoil, we closed the sale on a lonely, vacant, 1903 Queen Anne Victorian house. Our intent is to renovate this grand neglected lady into our dream home. With some skills, a truckload of tools, a “sort of” plan, a bunch of confidence, and a limited budget another of our life adventures begins. Follow along. It’s bound to be interesting…
A new adventure by the author of the award-winning Life Is a Road book series.
Saturday night somebody couldn’t decide whether to go straight down the road, or turn…so they split the difference and crashed into our fence and pecan tree.
Note that this is the SECOND time this year somebody’s crashed into our fence…
THIS time however, I think we can say, “We won.”
Instead of crashing through the fence, they head-on-ed our massive pecan tree. Poor choice. I expect the car is totaled.
As I understand it, the occupants fled the scene. There are no signs of skid marks or any attempt to stop. I’d hazard a guess that “Alcohol was involved” appears somewhere in the police report.
Our damage consists of a chunk of tree root, some bark knocked off, and minor bent up fencing wire.
I wonder how the city would feel about me installing tank traps and mines? I could call it an art installation…
Thanks for reading!
