Memorial Day

Today began like any other, with one minor difference. Early this morning my friend Stephen called me up and asked if I wanted to hang out. Since, I was heading in his general direction anyway I swung by his house and picked him up. We had already decided to go back to my house, when Stephen came up with the idea of taking Lilo my 9mo. Old Boston Terrier for a walk in the forest preserve. It doesn’t take long to get there from my house as it’s right down the street from me. The quickest way to get there is to cut through a business parking lot.

As soon as we got onto the trial that runs under the Briggs St. Bridge all the way to New Lenox, we happened upon a 2005 FORD Freestar in almost perfect condition. We have no idea as to how it got there as the trail is barely big enough for 4-wheelers. The vehicle had no plates, wheels, or radio. Lots of minor scratches and a few dents, whoever owned it decided to try off-roading with it. However we did manage to find some paper work as to who initially bought the vehicle. The owner even got the extended warranty, a lot of good that’s goanna do when you go off-roading.

We notified the proper authorities who ran the vin and could not find any history on the vehicle, nor was it reported stolen. After talking to the authorities they are going to leave it. So I am trying to find out if they will sell it to me and I will pay to fix it up and even get it out of there. So I’ll keep you updated on this matter later. After that fun time we came back home and had a cook out. I talked to my neighbor, who is going boating tomorrow, after my job interview. I am currently applying to teach at a day care. After that we tried to start a fire and could not get the wood to catch. It was funny that we used almost a whole bottle of lighter fluid. My Friend Stephen lost his mind and stated sign “The sun will come out tomorrow”. I am trying to find a straight jacket for him on eBay. Do you know where the nearest Rubber room is? So this is what happens when i hang with friends.
