Moment of Silence

April 29, 2008

Let us all bow our heads and observe a moment of silent prayer for the '89 Blazer, whose right front wheel suddenly fell off in the Target parking lot late yesterday afternoon.
Against all odds (and rational judgement), Jared was able to jerry-rig the wheel just well enough to drive ten miles home on the back roads.
The Blazer is resting comfortably in the driveway, and will be towed to Lou's garage just as soon as the wrecker driver sobers up enough to operate heavy machinery. Lou is convinced that she'll make a full recovery, and as her faithful owner I'm holding out hope.
I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

Cool...an excuse not to go curtain shopping...or was that what Jared was doing at Target?!?!?

Grandma said...

Dad said the Blazer is a personal friend of his and that he has full confidence he will pull through!

Rob & Katy said...

you're kidding me! It was raining too huh? Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes your the bug.

Man.. And it did that while it was parked? Consider yourself lucky!

Hope you can nurse her back to health

That is just so sad! Hope she makes a full recovery.

Hoping for a speedy recovery. Stay strong - you'll get through this.

I think that Blazer is supposed to go to me... I can't remember why, but there was some post about it a long long time ago... so, I really really hope she makes a full recovery so that she can be mine in 20 years.

*gasp* Poor Blazie. That must have hurt pretty bad. My condolences on the loss of a limb.

I'm with akshaye. Heavenly Father really does look after you. If it had happened on the highway...

Oh, I don't want to think about it!

Amy said...

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone.

Patti--he wasn't curtain shopping at Target, he was curtain rod shopping. At least we're partway there.

Mindy--You're right, the Blazer is willed to you so you can eventually use it as a planter. I don't remember why either, but it is and I'll keep that promise.

An '89 Blazer! Wow. Truly, you have fought the good fight.

Oh no, my condolences. Blazer will be in my prayers tonight.
