December Excitement!! Well, I Could Have Missed This.

Well, had a little excitement tonight.  We were parked at Racetrack.  Allan was outside putting gas in and I was in the car.

I noticed the guy in front of me was wearing a strange hooded Jacket.  It was black and grey and had disaster headlines and I was wondering what kind of person would wear that.  It said, "Large Quake Hit...." and "Zeppelin crashes and kills...."that sort of thing like newspaper headlines.  

Then, I see this long haired woman running from the store with two employees shouting at her and she was shouting to the guy who was driving the truck in front of me who had gotten back in.   I heard, "Let's get out of here."  Suffice it to say, the front was clear put he chose to back right into our car.  They took off, the police came.  

Minor damage to our bumper.  We had just been to a nice pleasant dinner.  Now my steak is a tight knot in my stomach.  The policeman did not even want the description of his distinctive jacket.......can you believe it?  Before we left we heard there had been another shoplifting by someone driving a similar vehicle.  I am just glad they were not sporting guns. 

Be careful out there!  Merry Christmas everyone. :)
