|Cruise Night 8/16/13|
|Central Coast Roller Derby Team -vs- Classic Cars|
Last year we sat on the grass. This year I was more prepared with a blanket for the grass and a cooler of food: oven fried chicken, grilled corn on the cob, musubis (rice balls), fresh fruit, and popcorn w/arare. We also brought along our favorite car enthusiast, Jerry's grandson, Z.

A few nights ago, The Man and I were enjoying our usual nightly activity -- sitting out on The Vista watching the stars come out. All of a sudden a green dot appeared about six feet downslope of us. It bounced around for several seconds before I realized what it was. I said, "Cover your eyes!" When I dared to look again it was gone. The Man saw the actual beam, the green dot touched him, and it flashed in his face.
Somewhere, out in the dark, someone was wielding a very powerful laser. A laser that could burn our eyes and cause retinal damage. We didn't stay out much longer after that.

Today, The Man did some calculations of where the laser beam possibly originated from (yeah, I know, he's kinda geeky).
These houses are 1.7 miles away. Next time, if it happens again, I'm calling the Laser Police.
