Crash, Boom, Bah

Larry, the kids and I spend Saturday night at a friend's condo only to come home Sunday morning to this.

A Car Came through our Property

Further inspection revealed, (that is such a phrase I use in work reports all the time) that a car with four drunken teenagers careened through about 40 feet of our eight foot hedge.

We learned through the neighbors that our cul-de-sac was full of cop and fire rescue vehicles and there were about 15-20 personnel in our yard. The kids tried to run from the accident, but being woozy and drunk, they were caught pretty quickly. Did you know if you get into a drunken accident if you are not in the car when the police arrive, they can't really charge you because they can't prove you were driving?

Thankfully, all four of the kids involved are ok, well, at least until their parents get a hold of them. (Hopefully) We are filing a claim through the driver's auto policy. Wheee! If it's not one thing, it's another.

They must have been going pretty freaking fast. Again, I am glad they didn't get your house!

Oh my god, your poor defensless hedge. Thank goodness it wasn't another car or a family crossing the street but, still. Your poor hedge.
