News ‘n Such

Time has flown by again on me. Number of things are going on or have happened.

The other day on my way home from work I was waiting at a traffic light and I heard sirens coming. They were getting closer so I waited with everyone else at the light. Soon the was a pick-up truck coming across the intersection, it looked to be pulling over in my direction. Wrong! This truck is what all the sirens were about. A chase! I was stopped along the curb side of the road and as the truck pasted, just missing me, it bangs into the curb, tires blowing and flying off the rims. The driver kept going, sparks flying from the now bear rims. At least 5 police cars were chasing him down. He then plows over a street sign on his way up the road, but keeps going on his now beat up truck. Here is a link to the chase; Driver faces several charges after leading police chase.

Something else I found interesting, and funny at the same time.

Today I headed out with the dogs for a hike on this wonderful warm spring day. We went out to the Jim Lake area. Parked the Jeep and hiked up this ridge I’ve been wanting to explore for some time now.
