Where Rachel stands on her soapbox and yells about the injustices in this world...or perhaps just in Jenison.

We received this nice little gift from someone driving through our neighborhood last night. Our neighbors came over to tell us that our fence had experienced a hit-and-run from a black compact car. I, inheriting my mother's "Detective Dart" genes ,headed out with a flash-light to inspect the damage.
How do you, in your little Ford Escort, "accidentally" drive 40 feet off of the road, through some one's fence and into their yard?! And then, you don't even have the guts to come to the door and fess up?!!
I realize there are much more important and disturbing things going on in the world...but I need to vent.
Our friends who were over for dinner pointed out that it was a blessing this didn't happen in the summer when we were playing croquet in that corner of the excellent point when considered.
So, I am glad that we are safe...peeved at whoever (whomever?) wrecked our fence and grateful that my husband works in the lumber industry.
But seriously people, let's have some integrity!
I'm just sayin'.

Rant over...for now.

Holy moley - that is one large hole in your fence! You forgot to mention in your post the truly amazing thing ... that we didn't even hear it when it happened! Apparently, we were all far too engaged in scintillating conversation to hear what must have been a terrific racket.

I cannot believe that! Ridiculous! At least you have neighbors kind enough to come tell you about it. I would want to wring someone's neck for sure. It's probably some dumb teenager. Whoa, now I really sound like an old lady. ;)

Oh my goodness!! We have snow stakes all around our yard all year long to deter people for whom the corner seems to be too much of a "challenge" but we have never had damage like this! Many a bent snow stake...but nothing like yours! What is with these crazy Jenison drivers?! Tell your husband good luck on getting the ruts husband hates that. I'm glad you and your family are all okay! What inconsiderate citizen we have:( Boo. I hope it did more damage to their car than your fence!
