Coffee Drink & Collie Encounter

You remember our run ins with Coffee Drinker and Collie, it's an on-going battle. So yesterday, on our daily 25 mile ride thru our community, we pass Coffee Drink and Collie's house four times. They live on a dead end street so we turn around at the end and come back two times causing us to pass by four times...you get it?

So as we are heading up the street on our second circuit we are approaching Coffee Drinkers and Collies house with Tony pulling and me dragging my hinney behind. Just seconds before we reach coffee Drinker and Collie's driveway, a pick-up truck in the driveway peels wheels in reverse and goes from dead stop to the middle of the road without stopping. The driver then puts the truck in forward and again peels wheels to drive down the street at breakneck speed! Of course Tony and I are startled at this and hit the brakes to slow from our 22 mph, but had we been just seconds faster the truck would have run us over!

After we compose ourselves, we continued on to the cul-de-sac and turned around to head back down the street when who should appear? None other than Coffee Drinker. Apparently the truck hit the recycling container and spilled it's contents on the street. He was picking up the spilled beer bottles. As we come close to him he looked up and smiled a big grin. Tony told him had we been a few seconds quicker we would have been hit. He just grinned at us! THIS IS WAR PEOPLE! WAR I TELL YOU!
