Time Out

Not feeling too artsy this week...
time for a bit of a break...
literally.
A new driver didn't quite understand that when you turn left in an intersection you let the oncoming traffic thru first. She hit my little Honda CR-V with a big 'ol Ford truck.
I am in much better shape than the Honda.
I was thrown as far as my seat belt would let me go and back to my seat again...
Air-bags did their gig, and I walked away in very good condition! PTL!
I actually exited Starsky and Hutch style thru the drivers door window.
Seriously I'm fine (I know I'll get questions on this) just have some sore ribs and neck and shoulder.... on a scale of 1 to 10... I'd have to put the pain level only at 1.

From the looks of your car, Cat, you're lucky to have survived. Thank goodness you're OK, and I hope not too sore. Take it easy and know lots of your friends are thinking of you. Hugs, too.

Be careful out on the road, sistah! So glad you were able to walk away, but don't overdo it, 'kay? No pain is one thing, but our aging muscles sometimes take a day or two to make their achey presence known. I hope you do NOT get sore, but if you do, know that we're all sending good karma your way, and that Annie is up to the task of Lots of Love and Cuddles. Hugs, Cathy (the Other Utah Cat)

Lil said...
