Fender Bender

We always go to Kerrville on Wednesday evenings for meetings at church. We have a lady from Home Instead that comes to the house from 4-10 on those nights. That allows us a little extra time if we need to leave early for dinner or visits. That also allows us to stay at church until 9 pm, if needed. On Wednesday, October 12, we went to church as usual and left to come home about 8:45. I was thinking, that we might have a little extra time to stop at Sonic, in Bandera on the way home. But as we were sitting at a stop light, behind two pick up trucks...the truck in front of us started backing up. Ron grabbed the wind shield wiper shifter instead of the gear shifter...so no backing up for us. We had to just watch the truck hit us. Plus on impact, the wipers came on- lol. I knew right away that we would be delayed getting home. I tried to call mom and she didn't answer her phone. Then I called Home Instead and had them call the lady at the house. We pulled off the street and waited for the police to show up. Then the "kid" driving the pickup called his parents, and they showed up. They made a deal with us, that they would just pay for the repairs. (it wasn't too bad, just tore a hole in the front bumper.) Now a couple of weeks later...Ron's car looks brand new :) Plus the other moral of the story, is that when we leave the house and a Home Instead lady is here...you never know what might happen to our schedule. (Mom has not "clicked" into the idea that whatever I need to do away from the house, is limited to a 5 or 6 hour schedule each day.)
