Week-end Trips 1995

Sorry, no pictures this year. It was our first Halloween in Florida but Jesse ended up sick. He was in second grade, making some new friends and enjoying his all-time favorite teacher Mrs Wilt. With Halloween on a Wednesday, and Dave in away in Philadelphia for the week, it was a relief for Lyn when Jesse turned up sick enough to miss school and instead be a helper by passing out the candy.

Dave's trip to Philadelphia was very memorable, as the Flyers were home on Halloween night playing the Tampa Bay Lightning. He went to the game, bought a 'single ticket' and made friends with all the hockey fans in his section. Lots of fans showed up in costume, most with hockey themes.

But it was Dave's first ever trip to the Philadelphia office and on Sunday night, lost in the dark and trying to find his hotel, he struck a deer while driving slowly on a freeway access road abutting a small dark woods. Neither the car nor the deer were damaged, but Dave still vividly describes the "Big Deer Eyes" pushed against his drivers side window. Later in the week, he narrowly missed a head on collision as a driver jumped the median (no divider) and drove head-on just missing Dave in rush hour traffic. That Friday night, while driving everybody home from the airport after picking him up, he vividly described the other driver, right down to her eyeglass style and lipstick shade (it was THAT close). As he told the story, a pedestrian stepped out into the path of our van and Dave swerved aside and slammed on the brakes but still clipped her! Three collisions in one week, as we all watched her sail away like a children's toy top. We called for police and an ambulance, but when we circled back, she had literally disappeared. Four policemen with big flashlights hunted through bushes and shadows but she was gone without a trace. The general consensus was that she didn't want to stick around to explain something (whatever that was) and that she was probably 'feeling no pain'. Everybody laughed at the notion of this anonymous woman waking up in the morning trying to remember the party from last night and saying she felt 'like I was hit by a truck'.  Dave was more worried, but these guys had obviously seen it all.

It was a very strange Halloween indeed!
