looking back

I started this blog about a year before I found my way around blogland, long before you wonderfully followers and readers found me. There were a few interesting things you might have missed, so I thought I'd pull up a few highlights.  This was an article in the paper just a few months after I got here.




Now, every time we go by that particular rest stop, one of us invariably mentions something about a tire tyre!

And the total count for the stitches was 60, not 57 (that's what the doctor counted putting them in--60 was the nurses' count when they took them out).

What a bizarre accident. A wheel not even attached to a vehicle?? Thank goodness it wasn't worse. The whole trip was kind of a rough welcome to NZ. You obviously don't discourage easily.

I think it's funny that the article says you were "used to strange events, being from America"!

Connie said...

ditto what Jenny said! :D (not saying the article is wrong, just that it's funny!)

I'm glad you survived those earlier incidents! I just have to ask... what part of Kansas are you from?

Thanks for your great comments, bloggy friends!

@GardenofDaisies: I moved here from Holton (just north of Topeka).

Oh, my! That's a lot of stitches, whether it was 57 or 60!

I'm chuckling at the line in the article, that you're "used to strange events, being from America." :)
