Before and After

This was the little girl last year. This picture would have been taken in February probably. I think it was taken by the dealership where we got it, I'm sure I didn't take the picture. I think the sales rep e-mailed us this picture when we were thinking about getting her. She had just been painted (previously she was white).

This is what you definitely do not want your truck to look like a year later. Poor thing, makes me right sick to see her laying on her side. These pictures aren't very good. He took them with his cell phone. My old 35mm was still among the missing inside the truck. At least the mountains look pretty in the background. You can't really tell, but this was on an upward hill, I believe. I said it must have been a really big bang when she fell over, but he said he was too busy holding on and trying not to go flying out of his seatbelt to notice. He did say it was a helluva job to open the driver's door like a hatch to get out. He's on his way to Quebec with several drops to make before heading home. I think everything can get off-loaded tomorrow except one piece, and they were going to see if he could do that Saturday. He won't be happy if he has to wait til Monday for one drop. He's anxious to get home and get her looked at to see just how much $$$$ worth of damage there really is.

I don't have anything to show in the world of knitting. I am working on a pair of socks and also another pair of sample felted slippers for the store. I've been alternating between them, but I think tonight I'll concentrate on just the slippers. I'd really like to get the socks finished this weekend. I need to finish a pair of mittens for the Knittin' Mittens KAL for this month, and I'd also like to get to work on the cabled sweater I started for the store last fall. I'd like to get that done so I can start a summery hoodie for myself. I already have the yarn, and if I start now it may be done for 2008! (I'm slow on adult sweaters.)
I got to waste two hours today at the DMV getting my license renewed. (Horrid picture -- that won't get shown anywhere unless I have to.) I should have taken my sock with me. I also took the paper with me to plate hubby's ATV. Thank goodness I was there for two reasons and at least accomplished one -- the salesman didn't sign, date, or put his dealer number on the back of the Certificate of Ownership. I couldn't plate it today. I called him and have to mail him the slip, he'll fill it out, and then send it back. Today's wait was enough for me. His ATV, he can go to the DMV and plate it next week. (The DMV in our town is only open two days a week for four hours at a time, and there's only one person to wait on people. It usually takes a good hour.)
Well, must go do my dishes so I can work on the slippers.
Happy knitting!

Holy truck wrecks, Batman! What a job it had to have been to right that baby. Hope it doesn't cost too much to fix. Wow!

I have to renew my license this June, and my photos always turn out bad.

By the way, I'll be going to the post office on Saturday. Watch for your box next week.

wow! I feel badly just looking at that picture ... thank goodness your sweetie was not hurt in the accident! and as a secondary, hopefully the damage to the truck isn't extensive!

It WAS really really busy at the DMV on Thursday -- I couldn't find a parking spot for work when I came back from a meeting! If you had a bad picture -- they must be doing a run of them this month ! Mine is the worst one ever ... it is sooo close up that you can't see my left ear, and my right one is almost out of the frame too! I have a feeling the first time I have to show it to a cop, he'll tell me that it is not acceptable, or wet his pants laughing at me!

Holy carp - must had one hella crane to hoist that back up. If he is up and running at least the major mechanicals weren't damage.

Glad he is okay!

Oh my gosh, what a bummer! I felt really bad just looking at the picture! Fortunately your sweetie is fine and didn't get hurt - and now I sure have my fingers crossed that the damage won't be too extensive and expensive! All the best to you guys!

It makes me a little sick to see the truck on its side, I can only imagine how you feel! I'm so glad it wasn't worse and your hubby was ok. And isn't the dmv a pain? Even with full hours and more than one clerk, it can take 2 hours here. It only goes quickly if I bring in stuff to keep me busy.
