I've been out of blogging too long to know if TBT, throw back Thursday, is a meme that is a "thing" here or not. I'm gonna make it a "thing" today anyway.
On the last Thursday in May Fisherhubby and I set out on a wee adventure - the end goal of which was a new fishing pole for one of us.
We had barely been back in the car when disaster, in the form of another car suddenly crossing our path, struck.
I only had time to think "so this is what death is" before the soundless slow motion grinding of impact occured.
Fisherhubby was able to walk away unscathed but for a pinprick on his thumb. I, on the other hand, had to be cut from the car by the jaws of life and ambulanced to the ER.
Fisherhubby wants me to throw those capris away - but I have chosen to keep them as a reminder of God's grace and protection.
We are grateful.
After our ordeal my number one requirement for the replacement: a substantial front end. I don’t see how anyone driving a small compact car could survive that impact.
We shopped locally and found this cute Buick Rendezvous - new only to us. I am very happy driving it.
As luck would have it, our life jarring wreck occured just minutes from the fishing pole factory destination, the ER to which I was transported a mere three miles away.
However, Fisherhubby has yet to get that fishing pole.
Your post started out so peaceful and blissful with the pretty red barn and your purchase of the bird feeder. Then, yikes, the accident, your car totalled. Are you fully recovered? Your new car looks like a good choice with a big front for protection. God is good to save you two!
That's quite a story and not that long ago. Glad you are ok and still have your sense of humor.
Oh my goodness! Keetha! I'm so glad that you're both okay! How awfully scary!
It is just so good to see you back in blogland Keetha! Scary accident but God is a great protector! I hope you will share your Football Fever with us this year!
Oh, I'm s glad to hear from you and thankful that you are still alive! That must have been frightening being cut out of the car! You didn't say what your injuries were, but I guess not bad enough to keep you down long!
Wow! I must say, I did not expect that twist. I love the beautiful red barn in the first picture so much.
So glad you both are okay and, I hope, fully recovered. I hope one of you get that new fishing pole soon.
I had somehow lost track of your blog...WOW...I missed quite a bit! So glad you are OK!
Whoa. Thanks to God you are OK.
Keetha! Oh no. I'm glad you and your angler husband are ok.
