John off today. :) He got up early and took the truck to get the tires rotated and balanced. While he was gone I ran into town to pick up some last minute prescriptions and other items from Wal-mart. Oh Yeah…..duct tape was on the list. LOL
John met Marcy, Bob, Annie and I for lunch at Piccadilly. From there John went to pick up a riding lawn mower that Robert bought from firefighter Matt Jenkins. After John picked up the mower he met me at Bob and Marcy’s and we went to purchase a bike rack and a helmet. At 3:30 p.m. we had our final appointment with the attorney’s office for paperwork then it was on to Robert’s house to drop off the mower. I followed John in the loaner car as we were returning it after leaving Robert’s. I was following John out of Robert’s subdivision and suddenly the car accelerated all by itself. It took everything I had to keep the brake down to stop the car. I am so thankful I avoided hitting anyone. I was freaked out! It was as if a demon had possessed the car. LOL I called John on the cell phone and told him something was wrong. Luckily there was a Shell service station right up the road and I was able to pull over quickly. John looked at the car and determined that there was a problem with the throttle. He drove the car the rest of the way and I followed in the truck.
We finally made it back to the camper around 7:30 p.m. John will work his last shift at the FD tomorrow.
Remember to laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
