Car Attacks Fence...

As if it were a scene taken from the pages of Strange in San Antonio...

This was our very first house on San Antonio's west side near Lackland AFB.  I put up a chain link fence in the front yard because the kids were still toddlers when we moved in, and the traffic that would fly up and down our street from Barton's Boozery on Military Drive to Security Service up on Highway 90, always made us nervous helicopter parents.  No, we didn't even let the kids play in the front yard, but why take chances?
 Anyway, Eva took this picture as she drove by so I could see the damage to the fence.  Apparently,  a car coming up the street maneuvered itself into the fence and front yard.  No children were harmed, though the fence had to be replaced.  I'm pretty sure nobody got excited about it, because cars have been doing this to fences and front yards on Westoak for years.

Bet your glad you no longer live there? That's a horrible thing to have to always worry about your kid's safety on your own property.

Also...glad no one was hurt. THAT... would've been terrible!!

Westoak is one of those tree-lined streets where the cars usually ended up worse for wear when they tried to do battle with the lawns. And the drunks usually ended up regretting the whole thing.

We visit often since my wife grew up on the street and we have a connection there. But yes, I'm definitely glad that house was more than a decade or so ago.
