Out of the blue. Friday December 2, 2016

It was a beautiful late spring afternoon and we were driving home after buying some great books for my shop. We were smiling and chatting when out of the blue, a gigantic red kangaroo lunged in front of our car.

I am not talking about a cute kangaroo that you see as a soft toy or a clever kangaroo like Skippy (wonders whether moodscopers ever saw Skippy the bush kangaroo on TV!). So this is a Jaws of the kangaroo world with a tail so powerful it could flatten a few humans at once and wreck a car.

My partner had no time to think he just swerved the car and an accident was averted.

My partner had to make a split second decision.

Nothing could have prepared him for this. We just looked at each other and thought about a few what ifs. What if my partner had not been able to move away from the kangaroo, what if the kangaroo had jumped on our car.

In our lives there are times when something happens out of the blue. There is no planning or preparation for some events. There is no time to think. To consider options. One must just act and hope for the best.

When something has happened suddenly out of the blue to you, what did you do? How did you feel afterwards?

The Australian Tourist bureau has asked - well told me to reassure you that most kangaroos are friendly.!! I would still be cautious of the big red kangaroos.
