I was involved in an auto accident

I Was Not Injured!

I had a bit of unexpected excitement yesterday. Crashed straight on into the side of a little 2 door Toyota Celica. The other driver ran a red light. I was so sure the other car would be worse than it was. I wish I had photos of the other car to share. Thankfully no one was hurt.

My bumper/fender, whichever you call it, is now smashed up against the body. It tore my front license plate and it's frame completely off. I've got cracks here and there and the grill and headlight mounts are shifted a bit.

The Toyota has what looks like a tire tread skid mark all the way down its drivers side. It's dented in a bit and his window shattered but nothing like the impact felt it would be. God was watching over us for sure as earlier in the day there was an accident near I-70 in Grandview Plaza. One driver died and news of the others condition has not been released yet. Pray for their families as I will. And give gratitude...pray thankfully...that I and the other couple were uninjured.
Oh and if you are looking at buying a 1990's Chevy Astro van, go for it. This baby with stood a good mighty impact and is running just fine.

I wrote an article about the accident and posted it on my AC site here. Feel free to read it when you have time.

Blessings to you all and


Drive Safely,

I am so happy no one was hurt! It sounds like a bad day though. You have been busy! I loved seeing the pictures of the camp. I think the area you live in is beautiful. I love the rolling hills and the water. It sounds like the heat is everywhere, but your pics look green and cool. I love the baby toy you made, it just goes to show how sometimes just drawing out your own shape can be just the thing! Hope you have a fun filled weekend!

Hi Tess,
I am so glad you are ok!!! Yes you can buy clear gesso. I am not sure Michaels has it although some of the stores might have it. I think it works pretty good!
