There are two incidents that have happened around here in the last week or so that I just shake my head over – it doesn’t happen every day – thankfully!  Let me tell…

 

The other day Pete had an early start to his day.  He was filling up with fuel at the 24hour BP at 3.00am.   As he was at the bowsers he felt the car drop down – he just thought the car was adjusting to the weight of the fuel but then the car started up and started to drive away on him.  He looked up and there was someone in his car – driving it away. Someone was stealing his car – and he was standing right there!!   He had the presence of mind to pull out the fuel hose, jump in the back seat and whack the gear stick into Park.  The car stopped.  He realised the woman in the car was so ‘out of it’ drunk that he got out of the back and walked around to help her get out of the car.  She was very drunk, very distraught and had no idea!!  Obviously she was still able to steal a car though.

I am personally very impressed with Peter’s presence of mind.  I would have had no idea what to do.

 

 

Second thing happening in our life is that we have acquired a Bull – he’s not a pet bull, he isn’t even really our bull but he seems to like us.  Next to our farm there is a scrub block and it appears as if this bull has lived there quite happily for some time.  But he has since found our place and seems to like the company.  He has been right upto the house yard fence, grazes down near the chook shed, and today has been enjoying the shade of the mango trees.  We would like him to be gone!  He is very big.
