Taking a Shortcut?

Sylvia and I are not very happy about the driver that did this.

About Chuck

I am retired after a career in electronics and in publishing. Today, my wife of 50+ years, Sylvia, and I live in a house on a hill beside a dirt road in rural west Michigan. We enjoy living in this country environment where livestock and wild life out number the human population.

  1. Maybe they slipped? Every single year we lived in MI., someone slipped off of the road in front of our house and lext tracks in our grass. Sometimes they took out our mailbox too. ❗

    • A slip is entirely possible. Our first mailbox here–it was a large metal one that our granddaughter had painted rural scenes on–didn’t make it through the first week. Some vandal used a bat or a pipe to thoroughly trash it. :dunce: :badmood:

  2. Someone must have been really lost or confused to drive across a driveway instead of down the driveway. !!

    • Certainly not fun, but nothing to get greatly excited over. I’m confident it was not done on purpose. A light covering of snow obscured the driveway, but that are thin markers that should have helped.

    • I think I can imagine. I used to have that, but tried to keep things kinder and gentler. :dunce: Okay, I still have the dunce icon, but that’s for me to use when talking about myself.

  3. Aw, shoot. I hope there isn’t too much damage.

    I’ve got a mailman who has worn his path into my lawn this winter. Goes through my landscaping. Drives me NUTS.

    • I’m not going to worry about damage–if there is any. That may even out come summer. :dontknow:

      Sorry about the path across your lawn. Out here in the boonies we don’t worry about things like that. Folks around here don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.

      • Fixing the lawn and replacing dead plants in the landscaping is expensive…and unnecessary, IF he uses the walk….so while it seems petty…it’s just a job and cost I’d rather not have to deal with. City folks worry about such things, silly as we are. 🙂 I hope to escape this in our retiring years by having lots of land around us like you and Sylvia do.

        • That’s the joy of suburbia. I’d put up a decorative fence with a pointy top so he’s not tempted to vault over it. I like living here where we don’t worry about tracks in the lawn or dandelions spreading there either.

  4. Nor should you be. I have had trucks run through the edge of the (soggy) lawn leaving huge ruts, but I live at the corner of two streets. How the heck did someone get up your lane? Oh, I know. Thought the paved lane was the highway. :tiphat:

    • At the time that happened there was a covering of snow. For that reason, the driveway location was not all that obvious.
