    My daughter came home and told me about her day. She took her fiance to the dialysis center and then ran errands for some friends. One guy had to go to the bank. While in there the loan officer did a silent alarm. When the cops showed up, the guy had a concealed weapon in his back. He had a permit, but the teller did not know that. Another couple she took to run errands, he was arrested for open container, he was on probation for the same thing times three. Then this one cop deciided to follow her around town, she(dd) stopped and talked to the cop. My DD was taking these people home, when a drunk driver (18 wheeler hauling fully loaded crates of chickens) decided he needed her side of the road after coming around a turn and ran her off road. Her car is not made for that. Several crates of chickens fell off, so throw that into the mess. Car was not damaged that much and she was not hurt, thankfully she called it a day and came home.

    Gracious day! Glad she survived that mess. Sounded like she was driving a war wagon. Well, the Lord was with her and hope all the others got the messages!

    Blessings, Ruth

    Yeah, been seeing a lot of that sort of aggravation/interruption/danger and hurt around, too. Old slew foot is busy messing things up at this time of year. I rebuke him; not putting up with this sort of thing.

    Sorry to laugh about it, but it sounds like one of Jeff Foxworthy's comedy routines. Glad she was relatively unscathed.

    Your daughter must be an angel, taking her friends to run errands, boyfriend to dialysis center and still she takes them home. I guess she was raised well. I am sure she would do it all again. Bless her.

    Her car can be fixed, she is not replaceable.

    I am glad she is fine. Maybe she needs to take a lesson from TSA and pat down her passengers from now on. And pull off into the weeds when an 18 wheeler comes near.


    How does she feel about chicken now?

    Mountain Deb: Your daughter was certainly in God's hands with her day and the 18 wheeler.

    I have always prayed that God keeps an angel at her side. He worked overtime that day.
