Slow Down for Ice and Curves in the Road

I was going to blog about how someone just ran over our sign in front of our house, but my daughter already did it beautifully here. I’ll just post the before and after photos. The before:

Drawing by Z. The chicken on top is a sculpture. We couldn’t find an actual photo of the sign before, but she did a good job drawing it.

The after:

*Smushed. Photo by Big Z. (The sign post used to be back by the tree.)

Just last week, someone came within four feet of hitting our actual house. It was our neighbor. And then the morning after that, someone was in the ditch. It was our other neighbor. (We share our road with two houses.) The guy who hit the sign? I don’t know who he is. He went to the hospital, but now he is out, according to the police.

So, some words of wisdom:

  1. Don’t drive by our house. We live on a loop. Our road goes nowhere. There is no earthly reason to drive by our house.
  3. Drive sober.
  4. No looking at your phone while driving.

And, remember: being late isn’t that bad. You can always blame me. Make up something I did to make you late. I’ll back you up! Nothing is more important than staying alive and not killing anyone else.


*That little wall was Z’s bus stop, where she sits and waits for the school bus. Luckily, school was out, and she wasn’t sitting there at the time of the wreck. She would be dead.

  1. You could have called this post ‘The yule fule’. Are you going to inform the driver’s insurer?

    1. Yes, me thinks he should rebuild our little wall and sign post for us.
