On Wednesday, July 20, the day that the Ocean Park Eagles has their karaoke from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., we were in town. We left early as my husband Franklin uses a walker and we like to park in the handicapped parking near the rear. Just before we were ready to leave, a few other people who were leaving came in and told us someone had damaged our car.

I called 911 and a sheriff's deputy arrived in no time. It was a hit-and-run. Shame on you whoever you were. I would like to tell you that you did almost $2,000 damage as you hit our car rather hard and ripped the front right fender. Shame on you. We have good insurance with a $500 deductible, but still, shame on you. Just because my cowboy husband wears a Stetson hat and we drive an older model Cadillac, doesn't mean a thing. We live on a fixed income. Shame on you. We are old people who love to get out and about. I love singing and look forward to karaoke. God gave me a talent, and if I don't use it, shame on me. At my age I can still do it and why not. Arrivederci.
