This is gonna be a long one?

Hubby got really really lucky on thursday







he was driving or rather sitting at 31 and 56 at the stop light

waiting for the light to turn green.. just as he was turning left onto 56

he smelled something  but right there is a BBQ place and right after

that Burgerking.. he didn’t think anything of it.. right after he passed Burgerking

he seen the first smoke  come up from the steering column,..,

He drove about 50 feet more to an old empty Taco Bell parking lot  pulled in

grabbed his cell and jumped out as flames where starting to shoot up from underneath

the dash… Woman pulled in behind him  and told him  truck had been on fire  since stoplight

flames where underneath  it since then and that’s why she was Honking at him…

Well he heard the honking but paid no attention since we or rather he knows only a handfull of peeps here…..But she had called fire dept already .someone else pulled in and used their fire extinguisher  to try and keep the flames at bay,, a small business right next to the lot someone came running from there with the extinguisher and a nurse on her way home or to work

stopped and checked if he was ok.. He was amazed at people  helping  and not just  watching

if this had happened in Houston  most peeps would have just  kept on going..

He is truly ok  though and now just waiting to hear on insurance.. He told insurance he would be interested to know what happened since  truck was fine and all gauges showed normal..

We have had no issues with it,.,.,,

anyhow a guardian angel  he had that day……

I think I have arrived…lol

AS most of you know I  moved last month to Indiana…YEAH!!!!!!!!!

Of course before the move loads of packing to do and after  we arrived loads

of unpacking.. Go figure.. wish I was a jeannie and could  twitch my nose …

Anyhow kind of settled now.. Of course even though my camera was packed in its

case  with all  its  extra’s got here unpacked and can’t find the memory card

or the USB …JEEZ.. hubby says he knows where its at.. told him divorce time if

it doesn’t sit on my pc desk shortly.. Can’t even take pics of the kids let alone

anything else..

Kids ……..oh I love it… kids and grands  seeing them every week.. Katies girls I watch tuesdays

and wednesday… well me and mom….they are  mostly good kids except when sleepy

as in Abby’s case or when teething as in Allisons case.. can’t believe that she is 5 months old

already.. I promise  pics will come/…

I did save my yarn bits  in a jar and  its all outside  for the birds to  make nests with…

Mom did some crocheting too so I saved her bits  with mine..

Of course Katie’s wedding preps are in full swing… the 22nd is  W-day.

Had the girls yesterday and laid down on the couch about 8 to watch  TV and woke up

at 12:30 am……..yup…. got a drink went to B-room and off to bed to sleep till 7:30 am..

Guess I was pooped… Feel good today… ready to  do laundry and what nots…

Still not doing to much crafting hope I get a bit more time after the wedding…

It is great being back. I feel like I never left to be honest.. windows open. nice breeze… no humidity… a real spring…( not like texas where A/C would be running already)

Love it……

so for now  sending hugs to all……………from Indiana….. Birgit
