Not one of those phone calls you ever want to get. Seems as if it was only last Tuesday when I was posting that Ross had gotten his driver’s license. Yes, wow, it WAS only last Tuesday. He got his license on Monday and he totalled my car on Wednesday. THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG.
He was okay, though. That’s the good news and the most important thing. My car… Not so okay. He said he looked away from the road for a second, lost control, hit the guard rail, and spun the car around nearly backward before he could stop. In a state full of twisty turny roads, there wasn’t even a curve involved. The accident happened on a straight stretch.
That’s his dejected little self sitting on the guard rail here to the right wondering when he will ever touch car keys again.
We were supposed to be, at that very moment, on our way for a long weekend starting Wednesday after school rather than at the side of the road with cops and paramedics and tow people. Luckily, no other cars were involved in the accident and no one else was in the car with him. Needless to say, we didn’t get off on our trip til Thursday morning when I was able to get a rental car.
I’m printing these pictures to tape to the dashboard in my new car so that when Ross gets behind the wheel, he is reminded that he is not invincible.

I was really ready for some of this after that.
Now we’re back and I’m car shopping……….
