Hope all you are having a great weekend and doing what you enjoy doing.
This was my weekend off from the Sheriff's Dept and so I was able to attend the wedding of my nephew last night. It was about a two hour drive from where I live but even though I hate attending events like this by myself I dolled myself up as most as I could and went on my merry way.

It was a sweet wedding outside in a park and it is always fun to watch a young couple so in love say their vows.

I said my Congrat's and after the dinner I headed back to the country. It was about 9pm on a two lane road when I noticed the car in front of me swerving over into the other lane. This is a road with lots of curves and small hills and not good for some one who has been drinking.  After several miles of following him I called 911 and reported my location and what was happening. I explained to them how he kept going over into the other lane and just barely able to make it back into our lane before a car would come over the hill. They ask me to follow him and stay close as I could and they would send a Officer to that area.
This is about 15 miles from a town so I new that it could be a few minutes. The situation continued to get worse so YOU GUESSED IT  Ms. Pearl came alive and decided she had to somehow get this idiot off the rode. When I found the location that I thought would be safe, I managed to pull up to his vehicle and somehow got him off the rode. It took several tries but he pulled onto the side.
Ms. Pearl jumped out of her vehicle and ran to his door and the window was down and he was really drunk and REALLY a BIG Man. I reached over the steering wheel to grab his keys out and before I knew it I was pulled inside of the car through his window. How that happened that quick has still got me spinning. Mind you I am in a dress and high heels wrestling with a drunk in his front seat. Totally out of my mind. Not sure how long he and I were in the car together fighting over the keys when a Trooper pulled up and opened the passenger side door and I tumbled out of the car onto the ground. That poor Trooper did not know who to arrest.
By the time I fell out of the car Ms. Maggie had somehow come back and probably looked like she had escaped from some mental hospital and so she  tried to straighten up her dress and find her shoes and explain to the Trooper what had just happened. What saved me with him was the 911 call had filled him in on the situation.
Need I have to say DO NOT TRY this at home or anytime. It was very foolish and I am still mad at MS Pearl for not thinking before she leaps. Geez Marie I am so lucky the Trooper showed up when he did.
After he handcuffed the idiot and put him in the car he told me in all his years of service he had never seen anything quite like this. I was too embrassed to even tell him where I worked in fear he might call the Sheriff and explain to him that I needed counseling.
So this morning I am moving real slow and feel like this!!!

Honestly there is not a place on this body of mine that is not sore. I feel like a two ton truck ran over me and backed up and did it again.

I can still hear that idiot asking the Trooper who was that woman and why did she jump in the car with him. lol

Needless to say Maggie is still angry with Ms Pearl and feels like Barney Fife this morning.   

Enjoy your day

You are one lucky grandma! Thank heaven he was too drunk to try to drive away with you! I'm glad you're safe and sound and hope your sore muscles feel better soon. If it hadn't been so dangerous, it might have been comical.

Glad you are ok. May your sore body be a lesson to you, young lady!

So glad you are o.k.!!

That's gotta be a story you can tell your grandchildren but I don't recommend you repeating it.

Thanksfor dropping by to see this former Texan. I have several Texans & Arkansans on my blog list

You all too sweet to worry about me but I promise you Ms Pearl is going on a long vacation and I will be more careful.
He had to be pulled over before he killed someone and I was the only one around to do it.
I loath drunk drivers and the lives that they take away and leave the families to pick up the pieces.
But like I said I am sending Ms Pearl

You're a crazy lady and I think I like you!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for taking an interest in watetforchristmas. You are a kind soul!

Wishing you all the best in your "Barney Fife" indeavors - the world needs more people like you. : )

Oh wow Maggie this could have come out so much worse, but then I don't need to tell you that.
My husband is a police officer here in Idaho, and if the man didn't kill me if I tried this, he Ms. Pearl is one gutsy lady. Now that all is well I can say, 'thanks for getting this drunk off the road'. My hat's off to you!
So nice to meet you!

Hey Maggie,
Just wanted to stop by and answer the question from your comment. I'm so sorry I'm getting back to you so late. Anyway, I'm not sure if you got an answer already, but this is what I know...According to the Blogger Help center, the new "updated editor", which is what you are writing your posts on does not currently have the spell check function. :-( I read that maybe in the future, but for now they don't. If it is absolutely a must for you, you might want to consider going back to the old editor mode. I hope this helps you and your blogger friend a bit.

Thank you for your sweet comment and visit and have a wonderful brand new week.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. I would like to win Peanut Cluster, I just love them.
I would say that calling 911 was a good thing and I am not to sure that the jumping in the car was a good thing.
Hope that you will start to feel better from your ordeal.
God bless


Sound like something from a comedy movie!! Only I am sure there was nothing funny about it. Thank the Lord you are alright. Blessings!

Wowza! You are one brave and might I add one very fiesty lady! I love that!! I'm glad you got that idiot off the road and thank goodness nothing terrible happened to you!

Love and hugs,

Annabelle said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I can't wait to come back & read more of are funny! :)

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

A big hug to all of you for your comments. I recovered from this and can say I am fine now.
It was just something that had to be done. Should I have done differently yes probably so but my hormones have been so out of whack lately I react before I think it over. I just kept thinking that it could be my child or someone elses coming over that hill and they would not stand a chance.
I did not get into his car on my own. Would you believe he was so big that he actually grabbed my arm and pulled me in. Scary to think someone can do that sitting in a car. It was an older car with one of those huge seats and to me it still was not big enough. hahahaha
Sorry ladies I just had to try to be funny.
Sweet dreams

PEA said...

My goodness, isn't it unbelievable how quickly we can get into trouble? lol You were very lucky indeed that you had already made the 911 call...doesn't bear thinking about what could have happened if you hadn't. You weren't to know he'd pull you in the car like that so it's no wonder you were so shocked. Drunk or not, he was a big man and as you found out, not easy to control! I can just picture him, though, asking the trooper who you were and what you were doing in his car!! hehe xoxo
