Sure was nice to be outdoors Tuesday. People seemed to be more willing to smile !
I must admit that I was entranced by a chase aired on WSOC TV Tuesday afternoon. Some drip refused to stop, eluded cops for 45 minutes. The cops hung back and let his female passenger give him wrong directions. I think she said something like “I told you to turn left at the gravel pile, but you just never listen.”. Pretty good way to kill some time on a Tuesday !
