peaceful day

It’s been a peaceful quiet day today the morning was full of sunshine and warm weather it reached forty degrees today. I enjoyed sitting in my chair soaking up the warmth. It’s a welcome change after the ice storm earlier this week.

As I type Carole is laughing as she reads actually she’s starting to double up and turn blue. When she able breath she read me a story that has been circulating on the internet I had a glass of coke in my hand when she started reading, She warned me that I wouldn’t want to drink while she read, I needed the warning. Don’t read this story while drinking…

This is supposedly a true story... [or maybe an urban legend].

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get outof the car!"The four men didn't wait for a second invitation. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why.A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station.. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun. No charges were filed.

Carole says, If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it a memorable one!
