from the news desk...

I managed to get in a bike ride yesterday before the rains came. Ran across this on my way home:

(For those of you familiar with my fair city, this is right across the street from Longview Presbyterian Church.) How does one tip a car like that in a 25 MPH zone? The driver had to be going at least, hey, 30 or 35. :)

Or course I couldn't tell for sure in the 20 seconds I was pedaling by there, but I don't think the driver was really hurt. (At least I hope not.) The ambulance left driving a regular speed and without the lights and sirens, plus there was nothing in the morning paper.

In Other News:
(or... The McSquirrel McUpdate):

It appears that Nutty McSquirrel is going overboard in protecting his few remaining peanuts...


Yikes!

Perhaps the car just fainted from having gas (just sayin' as I can relate)

And as for Nutty......I think I spotted him on "Cops". At least it looked like him on the ground with the cuffs on. His tail gave him away.

I walked by that corner this morning...didn't take much speed at all to knock ME over. :)

I'm thinkin' the auto's driver was gawking at the beautiful landscaping of the church grounds, veered, then overcorrected :)

PG: You crack me up!

DB: Yep, it's been windy.

SS: Hahahaha! (I should post a picture of the "beautiful landscaping" of LPC so blog readers would get the brilliance of your joke!)

Rev SS said...

I knew you'd appreciate my "humor" ... picture to share the joke with others could be fun

HAHAHA...the wind didn't knock me over....I naturally tend to tip on my own.

Where exactly was that on 38th?

lol, I thought you were really going to have a picture of nutty, but that's cute too :)

david: it was at the corner of 38th and pennsylvania -- across the street from the 2 churches (i.e. driving in the direction of cvg school on pennsylvania)

and that WAS nutty :)

ahh okay, makes more sense now.

Nutty's gone a little nutty. I think his nuts have been laced with something....
