Bob and the Bandits

Sharing my favorite pic of hubby Bob on his 78th Birthday.
Today is Bob's 78th Birthday, Happy Birthday Hubby.

Today is also the 30th anniversary of the first time he kissed me...

At 3:30 PM on his 48th birthday..before we even had a date.

PS... Bob has survived 78 years of dirty door knobs, so all you germaphobes stop fretting...

A few years ago, Bob was driving home from the flying club, on State Rd 64, a one way, East only,  with 3 lanes and much traffic.


As he approached the intersection at the hospital he saw a white Cadillac zooming through the hospital parking lot, and it raced on to the road THE WRONG WAY coming straight at him with 2 police cars in hot pursuit..

YES, there were cars in both lanes but further back and they missed all of them but Bob.

Re-creation...thank you Google earth and Images


THE WRONG WAY.... there was no where to go, so he stopped...

 the Cadillac stopped slid to a stop and tapped his hood, 4 doors burst open and 4 men ran in all directions, the cop cars stopped, their doors burst open, the police bailed out with guns in hand,  one yelled as he raced by , ARE YOU OK?

Bob thought he was caught up in the making of a Bruce Willis movie...




 Since his car was trapped by 3 cars he could not move and he had to wait until the cops came back and filled out a report.

The police officer asked Bob if he could describe them. He said NO, all I saw were knees ,elbows dread locks a flying

The Cadillac was car jacked from a little old lady and had been used to rob a bank. the chase scene was ON Until They Met My Hubby.... He stopped the race all by himself.

No damage to Bob, no one was shot, and the car had a small dent that he just left there. and MadSnapper had an exciting story to tell her blogger friends.
