Scary night…

I am so bad about making the time to post on here.  I wind up spending most of my online time reading other people’s blogs, or surfing around on interesting links from other blogs!  Geesh!

Tonight, I was helping the boys distribute the Boy Scout popcorn that they sold, and I accidentally went down a wrong driveway…I was turning around when I saw a big flashlight shining at me and was pretty sure there was someone on the other side of the light coming toward me.  It wasn’t the best neighborhood (not sure why we sold there, but it is near our house) so I finished turning around, and got out of there.  I figured that was the end, but after I pulled into the RIGHT driveway, had gotten out of the car, opened the back, and was getting the popcorn out, I hear a truck on the road behind me.  I look up to see the truck pass the driveway I am in, slam on his brakes, back up, and come toward me with his plow!  I prayed, "God protect us!" and told my 7yo cub scout to go up onto the porch.  I was hoping he would knock on the door so that I would have backup!  (He was too scared to do so.)  This guy jumps out of his truck and starts reaming me for pulling in his driveway, how he is sick of people doing it, how he has been taking down license plates and calling the police, etc.  I told him I was sorry, and that I was just delivering Boy Scout popcorn and had accidentally pulled down the wrong driveway.  I don’t think he even listened to me!  He continued to tell me to quit driving down his driveway, made reference to not usually "packing" (!) and left.  My heart was pounding so hard!

My dad and husband told me I should report it, so I did call the Troopers.  I don’t know what good it will do, but the gal that bought the popcorn said that he confronted her last summer too.  I think maybe he was growing something in his kitchen if you know what I mean, and doesn’t like visitors.  There is a lot of that going on here….

Well, just so you all know I’m not sitting around eating bon-bons and watching the tube….
