Quilt With Us

Not my fault will be carved into my headstone when I die. I forgot to get food for dinner on the way home from work so I went to the local fast food. I made it there in one piece and back out to the main road and I was I swear just sitting there waiting for the light to change and thump! I'm looking around and trying to figure out who hit me. I look at the guy on the motorcycle in the next lane and a tire hits the back of his bike and rolls in front of my car and into the ditch. Having located the culpret that hit me, I was trying to figure out who it came from. I parked on the street got out and looked around. No accidents piled up around me! This was good. The guy behind me is waving his arm and I walk back to his truck. The tire came off a boat behind him. I'm looking down the row of cars that I now have backed up behind me and sure enough, six, 6 cars back there is a boat without a wheel. Now I ask you, how can a tire make it past 6 other cars and hit me???? I move my car off the road and the guy behind parks with me. The wheel had hit the back corner panel of my car and put a small dent in it and scratched the paint. No big deal right?????

Not so. I called the other half to tell him dinner will be a tade bit late. Why???? All I had to tell him was "Its not my fault!" I swear you could hear him having a corinary right there on the phone. All totaled this makes 7 car accidents in the last 10 years. None of them have been my fault. I have called my insurance agent, I'm sure she is still laughing as she drives home. ( I hope she doesn't have an accident!) Just so everyone knows how bad I am with these things, I've replaced every car that has be hit except this one. I just didn't have the money after the last accident to replace the car. Ok guilty, I wanted the longarm machine more than a new car. (Smiling) I really hate driving wrecked cars, they just arent the same after wards. I called my local salesman. All I had to say to him was that I think green sounds like a good color. The previous car was replaced before the repairs were done on the car. All he wanted to know was how bad the car was. I'm sure he is still laughing when I got done explaining how I got hit this time.

So now that we have all had a good laugh. Ok I hope you are, 'cause I sure am. For once this didn't involve a trip to the hospital. Have a happy 4th and watch out for rouge tires from boats too!

Man, what luck can you imagine all the kids in other cars saying look Mommy there's a tire going down the street. Oh wait it just hit that lady. It's like the shopping carts can be perfectly still I pull into the lot and they all start rolling my way. I have killed more than one. LOL Hope your weekend is better, and DH doesn't have a heart attack. Green yeah green sounds good.

Oh my, you have had quite a time. I'm so glad you can laugh about it all. So green, huh? Does it come padded all around? Take care my friend and stay home this weekend, okay?

I'm glad you're okay. This surely sounds one of those 'made for movie' episode. Enjoy your weekend, and happy quiltin'.

hi Nanny. It would be my luck if I stayed in my sewing room that I would sew my fingers into a quilt or something!

Great wonder of all wonders! I hope the rest of your July 4th is not as wild as this has been. I am not going anywhere but to my sewing room.
