It is Friday, before the 4th of July weekend, so our little mountain town is getting invaded. The traffic to town began to get heavier yesterday evening and today the roads are crowded and people are getting impatient to get their groceries and unpack their stuff so they can relax.
When you are a full-time resident, you are not up here looking for excitement. And you certainly do not expect any. So, imagine our surprise when we got a call from our son as he was leaving town, telling us we should go down the hill to the market and see the Subaru sedan that drove into it. What!?! We did not want to miss this, which we would have if we did not receive a heads up.
Excitement at the “Drive-in” Market
It is pitiful that this is the most excitement we have had this summer. I do not know the story behind the crash. I do know that this is the first vehicle I ever saw that ran into a building in real life. I see this a lot in the movies and on TV.
Was I a little bit embarrassed about how eager I was to get a good photo so I could post it here? Not as much as I should be. I dashed out to the truck without combing my hair or putting my bra back on. I did not even look in a mirror.
My readers, y’all who are reading this, are worth the occasional faux pas, and embarrassment that come with my provocative reporting. National Enquirer, here I come!
