  1. Crash didn’t happen till around six.

    Wonder what all the ruckus was from four on?

    Was the crash because of all the commotion going on here?

  2. I guess this matter is not worth any media coverage.

    As of this time and date I can’t find any.

    Perhaps there is something that they don’t want us to know …. just sayin’.

  3. Oh, wait a mintute, Honest.

    I just happened to think of this.

    Last night we were extremely perplexed that there was absolutely no sound of any sirens or emergency vehicles, yet there were all these choppers in the air.

    We puzzled over that for the longest time.

    Then I decided that maybe all the emergency vehicles were already at the scene so that is why we never heard any sirens.

    Still, it is really odd.

    (I mean the sounds from last night.)

  4. Like Rush tells us, “just saying, what my twisted mind thinks, just saying…” tic, tock, tic, tock…

  5. Hello Angel. Thank you for taking the time to grace our conversation with your pathos.

  6. It’s a good time to make a blog post with a pop quiz safety test for both bicyclists and motorists. I took the test and was still wrong about a few of these. Brush up fellow residents, our kids lives depend on our awareness.
