Fireman’s Circle

Fireman’s Circle

(officially “Daniel E. Balls Circle”)

I thought I heard a crash or something at about 2:30am this morning, but the dogs didn’t bark and there were no sirens so I went back to sleep.

Turns out it was another high-speed car chase- a stolen Mercedes hit the curb of the circle at about 100mph, went airborne, took out the statue, and ended up in the yard of the house on the other side…

And apparently the car thief ran off and was not caught!

I’m glad no-one was hurt, but the cops have got to stop these high-speed chases through suburban neighborhoods! I know the real answer is that people should stop stealing cars, but no car is worth someones life and this is the second high-speed chase that has ended up wrecked on the same traffic circle in three weeks!

Kaylak

One of the things I’ve had to find a new home for as we clear out for the new parish hall basement project is the kayak I built years ago (she’s called Kaylak coz Crispy couldn’t say kayak at the time).

I’ve found a new spot for her for now, but as none of our current cars are really suited for car-topping her, what I really need is a friend with water-frontage where I can store her (anyone…?)

Beach morning

Beach morning


I had to meet some contractors early this morning, and it’s supposed to rain within the hour, so we’ve come for a quick run at the beach this morning and will go to the woods later this afternoon 🙂
