And beyond that I’ve been traveling. I drove over to Tucson on Sunday to visit with a friend and shop at the Gem and Mineral show that is currently going on. Until today the weather has been nice. Warm, a little overcast, but no rain.
Today, though, it rained. I’d made arrangements for a physical therapy treatment, and got “stretched out”. Then my friend and I hit the road to bead adventure. Or so we thought.
We were about three-quarters of the way to the venue when, on wet, slick pavement, we came to a screeching halt. It was then that we were hit. The fellow behind us was traveling too fast and ran into us. And we ran into the next guy, who ran into the next guy. A four-car pile-up.
Fortunately there were no major injuries and everyone was able to drive their vehicle away. My friend’s car sustained the most damage, both front and rear. The insurance adjustor will be making his assessment tomorrow.
We will be visiting an urgent care place tomorrow as well, to make sure we have not suffered any major injury, although we did sustain some form of whiplash. The physical therapist gave us some instructions about how to care for our bodies tonight before bed.
One never knows what lies ahead. As the old joke goes, “What’s that lying the road, a head?
