Just when you thought it was safe...

Sorry this entry is so late... we had a busy day and I forgot to post, and then there were no new comments when I got home at 2ish, so I just lazed about (blog-wise) until now. The following BREAKING NEWS story was brought to my attention today by the brilliant and ever so humble Rush Limbaugh, and then again by the brilliant and ever so humble Josharoo.

You think it can't happen to you? So did these guys.

Danger: Beware of Falling Cows

MANSON, Wash. (AP) - Charles and Linda Everson were driving back to their hotel when their minivan was struck by a falling object—a 600-pound cow.
The Eversons were unhurt but the cow, which had fallen off a cliff, had to be euthanized.

The year-old cow fell about 200 feet from the cliff and landed on the hood of the couple's minivan, causing heavy damage.

A Chelan County fire chief, Arnold Baker, said the couple missed being killed by a matter of inches in the accident Sunday on a highway near Manson.

The Eversons, visiting the area from their home in Westland, Mich., to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, were checked at Lake Chelan Community Hospital as a precaution.

Everson, 49, said he didn't see the cow falling and didn't know what happened until afterward.

He said he kept repeating: "I don't believe this. I don't believe this."

In other news, it is GORGEOUS here today. I took these stir-crazy munchkins to the park. Pix tomorrow!

    oh, and announcement

    we will be having a "Pre-Showing" of the Films produced for the Film Festival this Friday night immediately after RG at CTK for participants, judges, casts and miscellaneous and sundry youths... a type of CAST PARTY... if any of you blogger people want to come, BRING FOOD for the parking lot snacks afterwards and we'll love you forever...
    Don't invite others! We want some sort of audience for the actual festival on Sun night :-)

  3. Hey, those NOT invited to the PRIVATE showing of the friday night film fest can go to a benefit dance concert at The Woodlands United Methodist Church at 7pm. Leah and I will be doing our Misty Edwards "Glance" piece, and Leah is in another piece as well...the concert features Christian artist from the Houston area and all proceeds go to help local dancer Liza Pollok cover her recent medical expenses (Liza and her mother run Sonshine Dance...the only Christian Dance school around). Tickets are $25/adults and $15/children. You might say, "Wow, that's too much!" Well, brain surgery is not cheap! So go, bless, and be blessed!
