We had some errands to run this morning and then daughter needed some "honey dos" done at her house. Since right now we are her "honeys" she was on our list of things to do today.
She bought some trellis's for a couple yellow roses she bought at the flea market last year. They are blooming so pretty right now. She needed her dad to make some bases for them and drive them into the ground so this is what we did. While he had his tools over there he replaced the numbers and hanging plant holders on her newly painted porch.
We made it home around 1:00 for a late lunch and then with the clouds breaking up some hubbie got on the mower and I did some much needed weeding chores around the yard.
For awhile the sun won the battle with the clouds and it got very hot, 81 degrees before the clouds took back over. Luckily the storms passed us by again today and no rain in the gauge this evening.
When g-son came in from school he went out to the shed where hubbie was putting the lawn mower away and found this old inflatable alligator. Hubbie blew it up for him and he wrestled with it until dad came after him.
Just after he left I received a chilling call from #2 son. Telling me he had been in a bad accident. A man was speeding and ran a red light and hit his mail truck. Knocking him into an adjoining parking lot and destroying the mail truck he was driving. Fortunately for him they hit him on the opposite side that he was sitting on and he didn't get hurt. Thank You Jesus !!!
He doesn't really remember the hit but said numerous witness's of the accident wanted to know how he kept the small narrow mail truck from turning over the hit was so vicious. The other driver who wasn't hurt either got several tickets.
He didn't go to the hospital to get checked out but said his knee was banged up from going through the dash and his elbow and hip were really sore along with his neck. I'm sure tomorrow morning he will be sore in places that he hasn't even thought about yet. I am so thankful to God tonight for sparing injuries in this accident.Daughter went over to his house tonight to check on him and see his new truck for the first time.
On the news tonight the devastating news of a historic 2 mile wide F4 tornado tore through Oklahoma City and killed over 50 people at least as they are still sifting through rubble.
Some of the pictures coming from there are unbelievable.
This is a photo of the twister in the distance.
Although I am very thankful tonight for #2 son's blessings my heart is heavy for these folks out west and the families of the victims.
Good Night and God Bless.
