    LOL, does this kiddo belong to anyone here?! :D

    MURPHYSBORO, Ill. — Clad in Spiderman pajamas, a 5-year-old southern Illinois boy on a scooter had someplace to be. And he apparently wasn't going to let busy highways stand in his way. Authorities said Jackson County sheriff's deputies picked up the boy and his Razor-type scooter about 2 a.m. Wednesday along Old Illinois 13 in Murphysboro after fielding two 911 calls about the child's trek.
    Investigators said the boy reportedly left home without his parents' knowledge to visit a friend in Carbondale, about seven miles away. Deputies got to him about two miles into his journey, which involved traveling on two major highways.

    The boy was unharmed and returned to his grateful parents.

    Maybe we should send a card to the parents with the forum website listed- I have a feeling they are going to need it!

    Oh gosh...brings back memories! Cory left home at 3 in a pull-up and a pj shirt early one morning with a dollar heading off across a field to go get an ice cream. Thankfully a state trooper saw him in the church parking lot before he hit the highway and picked him up. Trooper actually took him to go get the ice cream before bringing him home
