Would you park next to this vehicle?

We opted to take a different parking space at Safeway when we noticed the hubcaps on this truck. In an effort to track down the driver, I checked out everyone in the store. The truck was still there when we left. Wish I could have interviewed the driver for you. Google let me know the spikes been around for awhile. They were once so coveted, people killed for them.  Lawmakers in Honolulu considered regulating the so-called “dangerous wheels”. Imagine if the driver was deadly accurate and you’d caused him to miss a light!  I taught my kids to check license plates so they’d know to be extra cautious around people from out of state. Never thought to suggest they check for spikes on front wheel hubcaps!

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
