If You Ever Find Yourself in a Ditch

Literally speaking, that is...I highly recommend Ken's Wrecker Service!

He rushed over in under 15 mins after hearing a mother and her two kids were stranded by powers beyond her control (well, this part I made up...but the hole I fell into was entirely covered by a thorn patch and even Ken acknowledged that it looked completely flat!) and swiftly pulled my car to freedom!

Also, I would have paid twice that for the entertainment value it provided my sons...who thought that the "Huge Truck" that came to rescue us was worthy of about 50 whispered "oh my gosh" s.

Now if only I could figure out a way to keep the three year old from telling me over and over again that "mama broke the car."

That's a good story and a great pic. Did you quickly stash the rum bottle under the seat when you fell into the hole? big grin

Glad you all liked it! What a week it has been. No rum while driving, but I surely had a few glasses of wine that night! big grin
