    Hope this wasn’t Fifi. I always see her walking Trimingham Hill, she must live in Paget somewhere….although if this was Fifi, she woulda bounced back up from being hit and started beatin up whoever the rider was. Then the rider would be the one in the hospital. So yea….can’t be Fifi.

  10. You have the lic. # and can’t find the owner? What is this, The Keystone Cops??
