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.
