Thank you for the Birthday Wishes. I am just now reading them. Last Sunday on my our to pack up my booth at Festival of the Cranes Fine Art Show in Socorro, Maddie and I had an accident.
It had snowed the night before. I was driving about 45 when we came upon a small white car, no lights, driving about 20 in the center of the road. My choice was either slam on the brake and spin or try to pass. A quick decision was made to try to pass. I hit a patch of ice and spun around off the right side of the road. We hit a ditch, bounced and hit anther one and flipped our F150 diesel van onto the driver's side. The van is totaled. Maddie wasn't injured at all. I have a compressor fracture of the T11 vertebrae. I am in a body cast and will be for the next 2-6 months.
Your prayers are much appreciated. We are both fortunate the accident wasn't worse. I am thankful the other car wasn't involved.
