Honking Horns

And they honked at me. I deserved it but in a way I didn't-- but it's the safe thing to do..so glad they did.

Two times today, I was inching my way out of a parking space..backing up that is and a horn blew multiple times. Turned out that while I looked before I started inching..I was parked next to a giant SUV. (I have a compact sedan). so I didn't and couldn't really see anything which is why I was inching and not moving any faster than a snail. So, the vehicle I could not see saw me and warned me. Times that by 1 and know that in another slot in another parking lot, another big SUV parked next to me. Danged if I didn't get honked at AND glared at again.

Sigh.

Here's off the deck this morning right after sunrise when the fog was rising in my woods. See? We have leaves unfurling now!

  2. Forgot to mention the photo. I like the fog, always an air of mystery, but adds to the photo.

    I hate it when I get honked at but it is usually because I deserve it. I am glad you are safe.

  5. I'm so glad I take the bus and walk. LOL.

    I also love foggy mornings, love the silence, the *feel* of everything. I can't quite describe it. :-)

  6. Hear I thought you were referring to the return of the geese.

  7. Mom says she appreciates the warning in such a situation, but much prefers a light tap to the horn, rather than a mean blast. Sometimes people come across as SO impatient.

  8. That happened to me once but the women was really mad and started yelling at me. I told her to chill as she was able to see me before I could see her. Geesh, some people.
    The view is breathtaking off your deck. What a wonderful way to start your day!

  9. I drive a small vehicle so I often have hard time moving a car from parking lot when huge trucks are parked next to my car. I am thinking about getting a bigger car if I ever get a new one.
    Your photo is so beautiful!

  10. Today was a raw, windy, rainy day. There was plenty of fog. It would have made a nice picture seeing the Boston skyline half buried by fog. That's what I saw as I was driving north back to the city from Cape Cod. I had to go down because of a family matter that I will reveal at a later date.
    Honk honk!

  12. Wish we had leaves unfurling here, Instead we are having a snow storm. We will be getting 6 inces or more, snow in the next couple of days. The good thing is after the weekend things will start to warm up a little. Have a great day Carole.

  15. Well... at least they know that their horns were working. Parking lots are war zones, I dread having to do the nasty deed of parking in one. Between the speeders and the little kidlets that like to run about... very dangerous and hard on the nerves.
    Awesome picture!
