Far Guy is recouping slowly. He is a tad impatient with his recovery, sometimes he gets real frustrated with his health.
Yesterday we ventured out to do the recycling and take the garbage to the dump. It had snowed. Roads were slippery. On our way back we were slowing for a stop sign, another vehicle was coming from the west travelling too fast and attempted a right turn…he missed us by inches and went into the ditch. Far Guy said “He is not gonna make it!” We waited to see if he was okay…he was…but couldn’t get enough traction to drive out of the ditch. Luckily for the driver some of our neighbors stopped by to help out. One is driving the car and the other is pushing.
Minnesota Nice to help someone out of the ditch.
I am not sure what happened next, traffic was starting to back up so we left not wanting to cause another near accident. I think our neighbor either pulled this kid out of the ditch or called a wrecker…either way we were all lucky. Far Guy said “Our guardian angels were looking out for us.”
Earlier this week our Granddaughter Madison (Maddie)was in a car accident. Her beau was driving… rounded a corner couldn’t stop and hit a number of trees. Luckily they had their seat belts on and the air bags deployed. Maddie was checked out in the ER …she has some soreness from her seat belt across her ribs and upper body. Her car was totalled. They are lucky kids. I hound them relentlessly about seat belts. Every time Maddie takes a selfie in a vehicle…I say “Put your seat belt on. I don’t care if the car is parked…if you are in it put on your seat belt.” We are thankful that she is okay.
We had a quiet afternoon at home. I watched some crazy movie on Netflix that I promptly slept through. Alaska Guy joined us for a late afternoon visit and supper. He and Far Guy had a good visit.
Chance is catching up on his sleep too. He is in a funk…he misses Miney and Little Elvis something fierce.
