Trouble comes in threes

So first, my van was sideswiped and I had to deal with calling police and reporting a hit and run. Then, I got a ticket for pulling out in front of a state patrol car. Now, I hit a cow.





Yes, that really happens. It was one that was not quite full grown. It ran out in front of me and I just got the back hip. It broke its leg very badly. I had to stop and tell the farmer that his cow was out and that I hit it. It is his responsibility, of course, but I felt so horrible! The poor little cow. Plus, I know how much they cost and what a problem that farmer now had to deal with. Luckily, there wasn't a lot of damage to my van. The cow, not so much. He had plenty of damage to his poor leg. I just hope this is the end of the bad car karma.

Oh my goodness, that is a lot going on with your van! The hit and run thing would have been the most annoying and the cow thing, well...is that even describable? Crazy times, but when you live in the county... :)

I hope next week is much better!

Oh, man! I would have been bawling my eyes out. That's a lot to deal with in one week. We know all about bad CARma around the Frump house, too. It's always something.

How awful!! I've hit several raccoons, but never anything bigger than that...

Hope there are no more car issues..
