More than a week has gone by and I haven’t written a thing! It is mostly due to writing about men stripping your roof off and banging for days overhead is not too interesting. I did play cards Tuesday which was a nice reprieve from the noise.
Unfortunately that afternoon Carol was involved in an accident. Her three passengers sustained injuries. Ted immediately went to the scene to be with Terry. When Terry followed the ambulance, Ted took John, who was with Terry, to get his truck so he could go home. Then he went to the hospital, took Terry some food and then came home once Carol’s tests showed bumps and bruises but nothing broken.
One lady had 4 broken ribs and a punctured lung, another a hairline hip fracture and another a broken elbow. It cast a pall over our whole group of friends. Everyone was released by the weekend and are home recovering. We have offered to help if needed but they were all getting along ok and knew we were dealing with the roofers and getting ready to leave again.
Saturday was church and dinner out by ourselves. The Astros were less than entertaining this week and cabin fever was setting in. Monday the roof job was finished. The house was in order, laundry done and clothes ready for packing.
We leave tomorrow morning for a week. If I have a chance I will give you a shout out from Hilton Head. And if this site cooperates, maybe a few photos of the group.
