A Definite Lack of Car-ma

Sigh. So you remember the Second Flood right? We've been sleeping in the motorhome in the driveway since Flood II. It's really not that big of a deal, a minor inconvenience from a sleeping perspective.

However.

Trying to maneuver a car, an SUV, a truck and a trailer with jet skis around a 28' motorhome requires navigational skill.

I have no navigational skill.

I've already scratched the MDX on the fence. Okay, it was more like a scrape. Okay, the MDX is wearing a fence-colored stripe down the side panel over the wheel well.

Today, I had to drive the truck because yesterday the MDX got in a fight with the lawn mower and lost. Evil Lawn Mower picked up a rock and hurled it through the passenger window of the MDX. Poor MDX is indisposed, awaiting the arrival of a new window from Tacoma.

Anyway, truck. Is.Stuck.In.Driveway. 1/4" from the fence. I'm afraid to try to maneuver it again. It's going to sit there until someone with navigational skills arrives to move it. So I'm here without a vehicle I can move.

Except the motorhome. That I can move. All I have to do is run over the truck.

PS. I just realized I locked the keys in the truck...

"Sure wish I could leave you some chocolate! After reading today's post I just wanted to let you know that I'm a good friend of Jenn and the City and she alerted me to your blog sometime ago and I've checked and read it everyday since - very entertaining, very thought-provoking and just a great way to start my day off - I'm without a blog so I simply enjoy everyone else's. - Janet"

Tell her it's me in the picture...haha...and it's bottled blonde, of course.

So whatever happened to the truck??? ;-P I'd be happy to pop over and move it for you, if you pay my air fare. And your flood issues, oh, my, your flood issues. After all of this you're probably going to be set for about twenty years. In the meantime, hang in there, baby.
