Dead batteries can be fun
Curtis and I went to lunch on Sunday. We normally go to dinner on Sundays after church but this day we we decided to change it up a bit. Razoo's was pretty quiet. The Sunday lunch crowd doesn't have the music blaring in the bar and we could hear each other talk. We discussed an article in the paper that morning about how to get more miles per gallon when driving. One of the suggestions was to shut off your car at red lights and railroad crossings. I can see railroad crossings but red lights seem kind of crazy to me. What if your car doesn't start right up? You are in the middle of the road and you're holding everyone else up, too.
So, we go out to the car and it doesn't start! We've got a dead battery. We just had to laugh at the irony of the situation. We made a few phone calls looking for someone to come rescue us on a pretty Sunday afternoon and found a friend who was home. While we waited for him, we sat under a shade tree near the car. Naturally, I had the pocket camera I use for work in my purse so I took pictures. The response from Curtis? Is everything a Kodak moment? Absolutely!
