Sorry, Grumpy Mike, but my first reaction was a smart alec comment like Rats! Must be from growing up in the 60's and 70's...

Really though - glad it missed, they hurt...

Twice in our life together, my wife and I have been "not hit" on two separate occasions by cars without any drivers in them...


A possible local instance of a "Mini-Rapture" Maybe?

Well you of course know all about if statements, they either evaluate true or false, close calls don't compute.  :D

Glad your safe.

Glad that everyone is OK. Was Winston Churchill right when he said, "There is nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at without result"?

Well, Churchill was speaking for himself, of course, and I wouldn't presume to dispute his description of how he felt.

However, my personal experience (an armed robbery where, happily, the gun wasn't fired; a ricochet of a shot that I had fired, myself*; and missing death by only a few inches as I sailed over the top of a car that hit me while I was on my bike) is that "exhiliration" didn't even make the top ten list of resultant emotions.


* Going to a professionally-run range, instead of the nearest empty chunk of desert, may be more inconvenient and expensive, but they do make sure there are no big rocks sticking out of the backstops  :smiley-red:
