The Runaway Balls

By Bubbles
April 15, 2010

My husband surprised me one day with two large stone balls for the front garden. He had to have two men help him place them. I just loved them peeking out of the salvias near the sidewalk. Our neighbors would walk up the hill and take a rest, letting their kids sit on top of the balls. This is a story of how the balls wound up hidden in our backyard.

Oh my gosh! I had tears of laughter welling!

Sorry about your troubles over your very cool balls, but that was a very humorous tale!

I'm a firm believer in Karma!

Wonderful writing Sandi!

It's so true - what goes around, comes around, and here's the perfect example. Poor kid though; not only does his car get dinged by the runaway ball, but has a tree fall on it too - and has a dad like his too. Can you imagine the long diatribe that must have happened? Rolling my eyes.

The son actually walks by occasionally, smiles, and says hi....and so I do too. He was a kid when he rolled the first ball, so that's all forgiven. He can't be responsible for his dad's temper....and he already paid dearly, losing his car to bad Karma! I don't necessarily feel that way about his dad, tho .....
