Moments for the scrap book… pt. 1

The Ganey Bomb
After spending a couple extra days with us quizzing him on all the names of the friends and family showing up, Ben really thought he had it down pat. Of course, when he volunteered to drive one of the vehicles of people back and forth on the convoy to see the Guin fireworks, he had forgotten that he had both a headlight and a taillight out. So, when the cops pulled us over on our way back, with Ben driving, Dennis as a passenger and Angela & I in the back, he experienced an epic fail when immediately after asking for his license and registration, the officer asked him who all he had in the car with him. Um.. uh.. um… some guy.. and his sister… and um…. uh…

Lucky for us, it was easy enough to drop the Ganey Bomb to the cop, since Pete knows everybody, and suggest that we were all Ganey family in town for a reunion and fireworks show. We got off with barely a warning.

Next night when we were scattered directing traffic for our own fireworks show, it seems Pete neglected to tell us that his mother would be bringing his grandmother from the nursing home to see the show. She has a walker, and as a result, he had promised them a priority parking spot. They arrived after two other folks with wheelchairs and walkers, and after the firetrucks, so we really were out of close parking. Phatass runs up to the car as it tries to pull out beside the driveway right into our caution tape and tells them they can’t park there. Recognizing Pete’s mom’s car, I head up just in time to hear her frantically trying to tell Sarah that she is Pete Ganey’s mother — because using his full name is the only way to drop the Ganey bomb properly.

    This is totally true. It was a fail of epic proportions.
