I woke up early as usual this morning and after preparing breakfast , I came down to find several new emails from friends though this site. For the first time this week, I have actually had some time to reply! Thank you to all of you 🙂
Now for some local drama.Last night, while I was watching TV and there was a loud crash outside and a car had veered across the road and smashed into a car parked 2 houses away.No one was injured but both cars were badly damaged. How the driver managed to end up on the other side of the road is a mystery, best left to the police, or so I thought. Immediately I heard the crash, I called 000 and the emergency call centre assured me that a patrol car would attend( the street was completely blocked by the accident) but 1 hour passed, then another ( it was during the second hour that 2 flat bed trucks arrived to remove the damaged vehicles) and still no sign of the police. I realise that there is a shortage of police and in the scale of things, this was a relatively minor incident but given all the publicity and the anti drink/drug driving campaigns, I had hoped that they would have attended to at least breath test the driver of the offending car. If he had not hit the parked car, he would have veered across the footpath and into a house and it could have been a tragic outcome.I bet he is feeling like he is one lucky man today.
I am looking forward to this week end. It is a long week end and the last Public Holiday until November.Although I have not made any plans, I would like to go out for a day because there are so many interesting exhibitions on in Melbourne right now, then possibly have a family dinner or lunch on Sunday or Monday. Anyway, whatever happens I am going to keep it simple and relaxed.
Have a good week end 🙂
