HELLO THERE 
SWEET PEAS,
*
HOW HAS THE WEEK BEEN TREATING YOU??
*
SPECIAL.......... I HOPE!!!
*
OUR WEEK HAS BEEN A LIL BIT FUN,  A LIL BIT
 SCARY, A LIL BIT CRAZY, A LIL BIT EXCITING
 AND A LOT  RAIN DREARY,
BUT WE ARE VERY THANKFUL FOR THE RAIN
 CAUSE WE SURE HAVE  NEEDED IT, AND THE
 LAWN LOOKS HAPPY AND GREEN!!  LOL
*
AND WE  ARE THANKFUL FOR THE
FUN, CRAZY AND EXCITING AS WELL!!
AND EVEN THE SCARY....AFTER THE
FACT!! LOL
*
I WILL EXPLAIN..............
*
TUES. LATE AFTERNOON WE GOT A CALL
FROM OUR DAUGHTER, SHE HAD GOTTEN OFF
 WORK EARLY TO TAKE ROSIE (OUR GRAND-DOG)
TO THE VET CAUSE THERE WAS SOMETHING 
WRONG WITH HER EYE.  DEE  PULLED INTO THE 
GARAGE AT  HER PLACE, RAN IN AND GRABBED 
ROSIE RAN BACK TO THE CAR, AND WHEN SHE 
GOT IN THE CAR... SHE HEARD A LOUD NOISE 
AND SAW SMOKE ACCOMPANIED BY A HORRIBLE 
SMELL, AS SHE REALIZED THE CAR WAS
 OVERHEATING.   SO SHE GRABBED ROSIE AND
 JUMPED OUT OF THE CAR, AND THAT IS WHEN SHE 
CALLED US.
*
  SO WE WENT OVER TO TAKE
ROSIE TO THE VET, WHILE HUBBY WAS GONNA
 CHECK OUT THE CAR.....SHE THOUGHT SHE HAD 
BLOWN A HEAD GASKET.
*
FORTUNATELY, ROSIES EYE SEEMED TO BE 
MUCH BETTER, SO WE DIDN'T WIND UP TAKING
 HER IN, AND HUBBY FOUND SHE HAD A HOLE
BLOWN IN HER RADIATOR. HUBBY TURNED THE
CAR ON IN ORDER TO PUT WATER IN HER
 RADIATOR, AND WHEN HE GOT OUT OF THE
 CAR TO DO THAT, UNBEKNOWST TO HIM THE
AUTO LOCKS LOCKED THE DOOR.  NOW HE
IS REALIZING WHAT SHE HEARD WAS THE 
RADIATOR BLEW A BIG HOLE IN ITSELF, AND
NOW THE CAR IS OVERHEATING AND  YOU
GUESSED IT.........HE CAN NOT GET IN THE CAR,
SO HE HURRIEDLY ASKED DEE FOR KEYS,  TO 
WHICH SHE REPLIED, BOTH
SETS ARE IN THE CAR!!
*
NOW COMES THE SCARY PART!
HE RUNS BACK OUT TO THE RIDICULOUSLY
 SMALL ONE CAR GARAGE TRYING TO FIGURE 
OUT WHAT TO DO NOW.......MEANWHILE HOT
WATER IS BUBBLING AND SLOSHING ANGRILY
OUT OF THE RADIATOR HOLES  ALONG WITH
STEAM AND WE ARE ALL AFRAID IT IS GONNA 
BLOW ANY MINUTE WITH HUBBY UNDER THE
 HOOD.  DEE AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO,
 BUT I THOUGHT I AM GONNA CALL THE FIRE
 DEPT. BECAUSE IF THIS THING BLOWS THERE
IS PROBABLY GONNA BE A FIRE AND AN
  INJURY.  DEE GAVE ME HER PHONE AND I 
HAD JUST PUNCHED IN 911, BUT DIDN'T 
KNOW HOW TO WORK HER PHONE, AND
THEN SHE LOOKED OUT THE DOOR AND
HE HAD FINALLY BEEN ABLE TO TURN IT
 OFF.  OH MY, WHAT A HUGE  RELIEF!!
*
OUR HERO............HE HAD DISCONNECTED
THE BATTERY BUT IT STILL KEPT GOING, SO 
HE HAD TO PULL THE DISTRIBUTOR WIRES
AND A FEW SECONDS LATER IT STOPPED.

SO MY 
#1
 THANKFUL TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER
IS FOR HIS PROTECTION OVER MY HUBBY.
I SHUDDER TO THINK ALL THAT COULD
HAVE HAPPENED.  TO MY PRECIOUS HUBBY,
AND TO OTHERS, DEE LIVES IN A TOWN-
HOUSE THAT OF COURSE IS CONNECTED
TO OTHER TOWNHOUSES.

 AFTER WE ALL
GOT OUR WITS ABOUT US WE CALLED AAA,
AND THEY SENT SOMEONE TO COME AND
 UNLOCK HER CAR DOORS AND ANOTHER
TRUCK TO TOW HER CAR TO THE SHOP.

WOW! The LORD was truly protecting the three of you! Jimmy was so brave and God's angels must have been so busy!
So glad that you are safe and seeing God's continual provision. =)

Oh my - what a story! So thankful that all ended well - I also hate all those "what could have happened" thoughts..but they remind you how precious God's provision and protection is...and how much we always need it!! Sounds like a great week. And new jobs, too - any news on a job for your Hubbie? Maybe I missed that but thought I would check.

Enjoy your Friday - and look forward to a great weekend. Hugs, Jennifer

You have had quite a week. I am glad all turned out okay. It seems when we get in those situations we don't always know what to do. You hubby was fast to think and I am thankful that you all are okay. I am happy to hear that Jimmy has some work. Thank you for the positiveness.

Blessings & Hugs

Your week has definately been full of events to keep you busy. Maybe next week will be one of relaxation!
#1. God's guardian angels were in protection mode! I'm glad he didn't have to break the window!
#2. Another answer to prayer. I have been praying for him. I hope he is doing well. I also have been praying for his mom.
#3. After this week, you are due for another fun weekend!
#4. I'm glad Rosey's eye is okay. It probably is allergies. Dolly gets allergies sometimes.
#5. I have been praying for Scott too. I hope this is the job the LORD has for him.
#6. Great! It would be great if he could have work enough to last each week.
#7. I went to the eye doctor this week. I'll have new glasses in a few weeks (at the price of $438!)
#8. I see alot of answers to prayers as the people of God have started praying for 140 days for our country!
#9. Isn't it great to see the LORD's leading! I have had a great summer with the LORD's direction in my life about many things as well!
#10. I am praying for Dee to get a new car. I praise the LORD He has taken care of me and my transportation. It really makes a difference in keeping up the maintenance appointments.
#11. Was that 500 Rummy?
#12. Just today on my e-mail I had facebook say I had 38 people waiting to hear from me. I only went on facebook one time to read something someone wrote to me. That was 3 or 4 years ago. I don't even remember my password. I had a friend send me an e-mail to conect with her on some other new internet "blog" type communication. I e-mailed her back giving her my blog address.
Enjoy your weekend!
Susie

Your post made me smile (well after I got through the scary part) as I am happy for all of your blessings. I will say a prayer for your family and your friend.
