the wrong place?

 

There has been many a times where we have felt that we have been in the right place at the right time..you know the feeling when you are late?..and you miss an accident by a few minutes?..

thank goodness for those times..

but then there are the times when you get the perfect parking space and you come out and someone has hit your car?..or knocked the mirror off?..and you think, geez?..why on earth did I park there?..

Well, then there is the time when you are just in the wrong place at the wrong time..like last night for the owner of this ford truck…..

nice dent in the hood..smashed windshield?..what caused this damage?..well, last night we were up a bit later than usual…heard a very loud crash..oh, no an accident??..nope..how about a tree falling out of the forest and hitting  the street?

a dark and rainy night and there is a large tree and it’s limbs blocking our road?..too dark to take pictures but these are from this morning…the remnants of the forest losing it’s grip on the ground..

explain this one to the insurance company???..’if a tree falls to the ground in the forest and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound??’

Then there is being in the right place at the right time..like my ‘little boy’..

a nice warm spot in the sheets..fresh from the dryer..

can you find the Kitty???..he matches the clean sheets?..

fast asleep..he found the right spot at the right time!..smart boy, that Oliver!!

as you can tell it is a slow new’s day here at Bigdawg and Freeway…We spent a  quiet day at home..for the first time ever we watched the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs….we bet a few dollars..but came up with no winnings…

Churchill-Downs-300x289

..what a great experience that would be..another place to add to our ‘list’..only 4000 miles from here….and how many tanks of fuel would that be???

the only other thing we did today was get our new Epson Stylus Wireless Printer  connected to all three of our computers..

we haven’t had a  printer in a few months..so this was a necessary purchase..love the fact that is wireless and a scanner too!!…

So here is hoping that you are always in the right place at the right time instead of the wrong place at the wrong time!!

  1. Poor car! Cute kitty! My cats always do that too. Ditto to you on being in the right place at the right time.

  2. My Skittlez goes crazy when we have the warm clothes out of the dryer. It doesn't matter if it's 100 degrees outside. She still wants to bury herself in them. But I can find her, she doesn't match the sheets like Oliver does.

    Watched the Derby today also, but 165,000 people is just too many for me. So probably won't put that one on my bucket list.

  5. Oliver in the sheets takes me back to a time when we had more cats in the house than dogs. Think I'll go wash my sheets & then curl up on them myself for a big snooze. I would call that being in a right place with the right idea:))

  11. Yes, your words have special meaning after the scare we had with Maggie's car accident yesterday. Fortunately, everyone's o.k. - except Toby's crushed that his car is wrecked!

    Happy Mother's Day to you, hope you have a great day!
