Impaled horseshoe


We have a giant horseshoe lodged in our backsides - it's one bad luck adventure after another out here lately but still here we are standing, dazed and amazed.

It's been raining and storming for days.

The land is flooded ankle-deep.

Last night a mini tropical hurricane blew in, the screaming winds got terribly warm, shingles flew off roofs, trees were bending and snapping -

Well, have a look at what happened in our driveway,
why don't you?

I was freaking the hell out.

But guess what? The car is intact. It's ok. There is only one small dent above the driver's door on the frame of the car and that's it. Nothing broken nor scratched. The other half of the tree came dangerously close to crashing down on our house but it's still standing - it's a bleddy miracle.

Vegas and I broke out in hysterical laughter after escaping yet another could-have-been-disastrous situation. I don't think I recuperated from the dogs being lost two days ago and now this.

Holy shit.

I need some advil and a glow-in-the-dark statue of the Virgin Mary to kiss.

I can't believe it didn't take your car OUT! That's a stroke of good fortune right there!

I can't believe your weather patterns... all over the place! First too hot, now this. Poor thing. Glad there was no big damage-- you've got good karma my friend.

Crap! No, no, no...wait...


Girl, you better stay in your bed, with your dogs, all day long.

Please tell Vegas, Farmer said, he cannot go to work for several days. He must stay home and watch over you and the dogs.

And, I thought our farm was a dangerous place...

So glad you are safe and that your car didn't get smashed. Okay now that's enough scary stuff from you!

Holy mackerel, what is going on in your neck of the woods?? Maybe it's a sign to just stay inside for a while and take it easy...

Oh were not kidding about Nicole taking down a tree.
I say, cross your fingers, dance around in a circle and buy some flippin' lotto tickets.
You guys are lucky.
I hope your luck continues....on the upside.
