Mom's Crazy Morning
Interesting things happen around here all the time. Mom overslept this morning and she's wierd cuz she thinks that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you know the reason "sooner" and sometimes the reason comes "later". Well, today the "reason" came just after she got on the fast highway to go to work. She had just gotten on and this is what she saw...
She is a "stopper" so she jumped out of the car and grabbed her fire extinguisher from the back and headed over to see if she could help. There were two people trapped in the upside down car. Two big men were trying to get the doors open or kick out some windows. Luckily, there was no fire and they finally got a door open so the people could get out. PHEW!! They were from Minnesota and had left for Phoenix at 3:50 in the morning. The wife thinks that her husband fell asleep. Here is the wonderful part...they were both wearing their seat-belts and they were fine. The husband had a tinky scratch on his hand!! That was it!! The wife was really upset and she said "That's my brand new car!! Look at it!!" Mom said "I can see your car but I am looking at YOU and YOU are HERE!!" She stayed with them (since they were out in the "sticks" and not from here) and once they figured out that they needed to rent a car and go back home to figure things out, she took them in to Des Moines so they could rent a car. One of the volunteer firemen that came from New Virginia is the guy that takes the tractor around our hay field and makes it into big round things. She said HI and he said that he knew she would be good help for the Minnesoootans. This is him directing traffic so Mom doesn't get hurt.
Now she's ALL hyper and can't settle down. She said she was scared what they were going to find when they got the car doors open. I think that now she knows why she woke up late...don't you?
