Sooo.. Somewhere along the way..
We've had some..
The old Intrigue wouldn't start one
day after driving it over 200 miles
from KC to Columbia and back..
Our Subaru conked out again..
And one night as I drove home from
Tyco, it was dark and suddenly..
There was a flash of light on
the right side of the car..
Was on FIYAH!!
Fire shooting out of the rear passenger
side wheel well..
I stopped as fast as possible on the
side of the road calling 911
and the fire department.
We JUST bought another engine for
it Tuesday afternoon.
I had just finished my work for the day
at the group home and walked outside...
To see to my shock and awe..
My left blinker was on..
There was a head moving around
in the drivers seat..
I thought it was my husband..
Until the person looked up at me..
Definitely NOT my husband!!
I watched in shock while this
dude finagled a screwdriver and got the
Grabbed my phone - frantically
dialing 911 again and running back into the
group home just in case he had a gun.
One of my co-workers and one of our
clients ran out and scared the guy off.
Apparently - he couldn't get it out of
park and into gear to take off with it..
However.. He did screw up the
steering column and we had
to have it towed home.
I would say that the bus might be
safer, but I have my doubts about that!
Whew for sure!
The steering column damage..
They punched in the lock
on the passenger door..
I think it's time for some of this..
And some peace and quiet..
