Anyway. . . yesterday was windier than most. So when I pulled up into my driveway after work that evening, then walked around to the passenger door to retrieve a six pack of beer and a bottle of wine, the wind was whipping my hair and winter's road sand into my face.

This has definitely been my lucky week! First a diamond ring turns up in our shop vac, and now our vehicle (not to mention my very person) was spared being squashed, smashed or scratched mere MERE MILLIMETRES!
And they say things happen in threes. I'm thinking I should buy a lottery ticket. . .
So, do you have any stories of near misses to share?
