My day got off with a big bang....
We were still into mugdom this morning.
After chores I picked some veggies from the garden and went in the house to make leek soup for dinner. Sally and Judy were coming over.
Just before 9 I heard the screeching of tires as a gigantic semi came to a stop at the end of the driveway. I also heard a loud thud, grabbed the phone and went out to our front yard where I saw this. On the way I dialed 911. This is the 3rd accident on our property in the past 6 months. The road is perfectly straight with very wide shoulders and conditions were fine, but the driver was distracted. Not the first accident of this kind.
I could not get ahold of Gary as he was at yoga. What a mess! First our mailbox was totaled, then the rocks on both sides of the driveway were thrown all over the place....the car hit the telephone pole and flipped over. Only one person, and she was pulled out of the back seat by people who saw the whole thing. The sheriff, first responders, fire department, ambulance, rescue truck and more were on the scene within minutes. Fortunately the driver was ok and refused to go to the hospital. In the meantime, we had our third accident to clean up. This will take awhile.
Lorie (Moon's Mom) helped us pick up all the trash, glass etc. and when that was done we showered and drove in to Rochester where we met Jenny, Finn and Coop for my birthday lunch.
We sat out on the deck at Pomadoro's.
The food was great and we had a very nice time. Grampa's treat.
Gary took the boys to their house for the afternoon and I continued working on dinner.
The ponies went in at 5:30....humid and buggy so they loved being in their stalls.
Everyone arrived around 6:30.
Judy made a spectacular salad....
I made the soup (requested by Judy).
Sally brought these gorgeous glads for my B'day.
After dinner I let the ponies back out and Gary picked a pail of veggies for Sally.
Then we had dessert. Sally brought one of those "light" chocolate cream pies from Wegmans.
Time for a nap.
