    Grandparent's close call.......

    Today my grandparents needed to go to the bank to do a little banking. Well, my grandpa is getting up there in age and has his own speed. My grandma on the other hand moves alittle faster. My Grandpa is finally ready to go and they head out to the bank. As they get close to the bank several squad cars go flying by and pull up to their Wachovia. They had just missed an armed robbery by minutes. My grandma said if my grandpa hadn't taken so long to get ready they would have been there while this guy was robbing the place. Stay safe out there guys.

    Here a news report I found:

    I'm glad they missed it. Sometimes being slow is an asset!

    Glad to hear everything worked out well for them! My grandparents are the same way, my grandfather due to age is a littler slower. My grandmother sometimes rags on him for it. It can be a laugh at times!

    Yes this time being a little slow was a blessing. Glad to here they were not there and are o.k. It is a dangerous world out there. One only has to pick up a news paper or listen to the news to know that.

    Please, please, please post some pictures from that range trip. If your gran can do it, maybe my mom will relent and let me take her!
