The BBB - Bad news - Good news (March 29)

This will be real short – it has been a long day.

The good news is that we are alive & well and getting ready to sleep in the BBB after spending a great day with Chris, Tammye, Hunter & Camdyn. We had breakfast with them at Lulu’s diner this a.m. and then took the BBB for a day trip north of San Antonio. Details of that at another time.

The bad news is that for the first time in traveling long distances from home in RV’s and other vehicles we had a catastrophic mechanical failure. As we were returning to their hotel around 7:00 p.m. we were pulling away from a stop light making a turn onto another street when the bottom ball joint – drivers side - pulled free from the control arm - resulting in the frame crashing down onto the pavement. We were stranded for over 5 hours before we finally got a “transport size” wrecker to come and handle the job – we have AAA coverage and that is another story --

Anyhow we are now sitting in the parking lot of a repair shop waiting for them to open in the morning – hopefull it won’t take forever to fix.

The really good news is that we are so thankful – God is good – We were on city streets because I had accidentally exited the freeway 2miles before we should have and I don’t even want to imagine what would have happened at highway speeds – with the most precious cargo on board. We have been praising God for my mistake all evening.

I had written this and lost it once because the connection dropped – I’m going to “cut & paste” it and then I need to try to get some sleep.

God Bless

WOW that is so scary ... I'm so thankful that God was watching over you in such a protective way. Our prayers are for a speedy repair ... and for prayers of thanksgiving to continue.
