Well our MOM had a big adventure yesterday and I wanted to tell you about it. FIRST, she had to run some papers from her office to another town to get filed in time for a trial, SECOND when she turned around to come back in ten seconds she drove right into a BIG BAD STORM, yep something called straight line winds.
Well, Mom has a little blue car the size of a gnat and those ole winds blew her all over the road so she decided she had better STOP and find a place to hide herself and little blue. Mom picked a parking lot in a new hotel. MOM WHAT WERE YOU THINKING....did you want to end up like DOROTHY??????? Well, as she was sitting there in the OPEN she thought POSSIBLY this was not a good idea, and she couldn't get out of the car and run into the hotel, cos the the WIND so she just sit there through it worrying about us COS SHE HAD LEFT US OUT ON THE BACK PORCH!!!!!!! Yes, it is screened in but I am very afraid of storms...the other two dummies could have cared less.
Let me tell you , the shingles were flying off the roof, and branches were hitting the house, and it even blew over the trash can. YEP, that is what mom was worried about, OUR trash can blowing away....WHAT ??!!!
So, finally Mom was safely back on the road to home, but then she realized little blue, our car, is so small and sits so close to the road, that every big puddle she hit, she would fly into the air......finally she made it back, to see most of the town trees laying all around on roofs and in the streets. There was no power on the hill where the courthouse is so mom got to go home EXCEPT she couldn't get in the driveway cos there was half a tree laying across it, AND of COURSE OUR TRASHCAN ALONG WITH ALL THE TRASH IS IN THE ROAD. ( I told mom later the neighbors weren't worried at that moment about seeing our pee pads...get a grip mom..focus)
We were lucky enuf to have power but most of the county was without it till around 9 last night and some even later. We were also blessed with all the damages throughout the county that no one was hurt. We talked about the Oklahoma peoples last night and what they are going through and how this feels major but was really minor. Sometimes its hard to keep things in perspective isn't it.
So I stayed glued to my mom last night all night just in case the winds blew up....the two little dummies just slept away in our new bed. Today it is storming again, mom left us in the house this time.
Here is a picture of Uncle Abe and Baby Bean at a swimming party this weekend. We like this picture better than storm damage pictures. You will notice his is not Military Appropriate anymore....he is more AMISH....baahahahhahah......
