Move over, Nancy Drew!!!

Friday was the final day for Vacation Bible School (a/k/a Mission Quest) for the girls. Haley and I took them over to church to purchase some of the craft items made this week...the funds will benefit various missions throughout the world. My friend Joy came in (she works at that church) and said to grab my camera and go look in the parking lot. Someone had a very bad day! The girls went over to check out the 'crime scene' and tried to figure out exactly what happened (the owner was born in October, lives in our county, maybe put the car in 'drive' instead of 'reverse' and hit the gas and jumped the curve. Hmm, what made that big gash on the bottom of the doors? Oh yes, the fire hydrant! Did the church van's tire get damaged? Uh oh!). And the adults thought "What idiot pulled in and blocked both vans? Heeere's your sign!
We didn't think even the minister could lay hands on this mess and fix it!!! We assume only someone's pride got hurt...and us and the junior sleuths left it up to the local deputy to figure it all out and write up the report. Lunch was next on our agenda. The end.

Love the way you wrote that up! Nobody was hurt as far as I know, the deputy got the car owner out of a meeting at the college cafeteria, and they wrote it all up, then a wrecker came for the van. I guess they found the owner of the truck, too, I couldn't see that from my office window! Not a good day for that van and its owner!
