This can’t be good.

We were awakened Saturday morning at 1 am by pounding on the door and the phone ringing. Beth and I looked at each other, and without saying anything we both slipped out of bed. She quietly answered the call as I grabbed a weapon from the night stand and crept toward the stair case.
A Kenosha police dispatcher was calling; there was an officer at the door. I put the weapon away, quickly put on a robe and thought, “This can’t be good.”
This is the woman that drove into our house and destroyed my beloved car; the lovely Ms. Erica Dawn Jeffers. She pretty much ruined our summer.

I come from a long line of strong, progressive women who live to old age, but the men in my family don’t fare so well. Both of my grandfathers died before I knew them. My maternal grandmother remarried a delightful man, who took me fishing and told corny jokes and did magic tricks, but I was too young to appreciate his charm and he died before I really got to know him. My father died when he was 62. As an adult I have never had a relationship with an elderly male.
