The thug who did this used the glass beer bottle like a bat, hopping out of their car to deliver the blow and then jumping back in and squealing away as Steve ran out upon hearing the noise. It was too dark on our block and the car drove without lights so he was not able to gather any usable information.
The window shattered is a rear window which most glass shops do not stock plus it is for a car that is 32 years old, considered a classic, and parts are difficult to find (or must be special ordered). It is going to be expensive to repair.
And that is part that makes the WDA sad. With this one heartless action the person DID score a victory...over the kids and homeless families at Cuidando Los Ninos Family Shelter...the window replacement is going to have to come out of our family's annual Christmas donation of blankets to keep people who have nothing, not even a warm coat, a bit warmer. And that makes us mad enough to toss forgiveness to the wind...and want to BITE!
