Second post today, I kept my promise

Posted by JeanellePaige at 8:04 AM
So, here's something I hadn't blogged about yet. Brian and I were up late Friday night watching a movie and we hear "CRASH BAM BOOM" Brian said, "What the hell was that?" I knew exactly what it was. I said, "A Car missed the stop sign."
So, I called 911. A guy in a truck had fallen asleep at the wheel and didn't stop at the end of the road and came crashing right through our woods! There had been huge logs there as a barricade because that's been the like 6th car to fly through there. Well, the truck hit those logs, and because they had been there a while they were rotting so he blew right through them, until he came to a new log, one that the power company had just cut down and left and as soon as he hit that his back end flipped right over and he landed upside down. The passengers side roof landed right on a stump that was in our yard and caved in. This guy was lucky! He was cut up a little, but that's it! Brian was all freaking out on him, thinking he was drinking, thought he saw a car seat in the car, asking if there were any kids.... The guy was dazed, of course. He asked Brian why we called the cops, lol.
So here are a couple of BAD pics. It was at night and taken through a screen window. Jillian was woken up so I had to stay inside with her. I did go out once to make sure everyone was ok since I had been trained in CPR and such but everyone, well it was just that one guy, was fine.

The guy came back the next day and apologized, which I thought was such a nice thing to do. He obviously hadn't even been home yet because he still had blood all over his clothes. He asked if he could help clean up the mess. Bran said he would clean the glass but the guy could pick up the rest of his car parts, lol.
So, that was a not so fun night. We finished our movie after the fiasco was over. We were watching Spanglish. It's a great movie with a shitty ending.
The mice are getting bigger now. The bigger they get, the bigger the nest the momma builds. I saw them all up and walking around the other night. It was cute to see. I haven't seen them walking around again though. Once I do, I am moving the cage out to the shed. I will just leave the cage out there with the top off so either they can leave and go somewhere else, or live in there for the winter. Unless mice hibernate, I don't know, lol.
So, here the freebie I promised. It's my first attempt at a desktop calendar. There's 800x600 size, and the bigger size most people use as screen res. I used the things from my new kit in the works that I can't seem to finish. It's called Falloween. Hopefully I will finish it up soon. Click on the preview to DL it. If you get an error message, sopy the link from that browser into a new browser and hit go and it should work.
