Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride

So the idiot parked next door (yes, idiot) didn’t have the shell on his truck attached and in the winds predicted all week, the shell flew off his vehicle and bounced on first my car, and then Alpha Man’s truck, totalling both in one fell swoop before continuing its flight through the air and embedding itself our tree like a scene from a bad tornado flick. I’m going to need some serious cookies to get through this.

If there’s pictures with this post, we have power and I was able to add them. If there’s not … we don’t. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

While you’re waiting for me to come back online with baited breath ( ๐Ÿ˜› ), you could do this beleaguered author a HUGE favor and get thyself to an online bookstore and order UNDER THE MISTLETOE ($1.99), my Lucky Harbor Christmas novella. That would most definitely improve my day.

  1. So sorry about having no electricity. Since there were no pictures I’m assuming no power. ๐Ÿ™ If it helps, I have UNDER THE MISTLETOE on pre-order and waiting impatiently until tomorrow or at least until midnight when I assume it will download to my Kindle. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Can’t wait to read! My weekend wasn’t eventful due to weather or neighbors, mine was eventful due to no sleep, moving to a new house in a different state, and a brother in law falling through the ceiling in said new house! Oh the adventures of me and my family! You become close when you sleep a couple of hours in a car at a truckstop!

  3. Sorry about your wind damage and loss of electricity. Living here in FL and my family living in the aftermath of the NY/NJ hurricane, I know about that kind of destruction. Take care, eat cookies, pet the dogs, hug the cat and kiss the family. Everything will be okay…I pre-ordered UNDER THE MISTLETOE. {{HUGS}}

  4. I hope said Idiot has insurance. Living in Central Florida, I’ve gone weeks without power due to hurricanes. Never any fun. I hope you have alternative heat sources. Stay safe.

  5. Yikes, I heard it was going to be pretty wild up in the Tahoe region this weekend. So sorry about your cars, but I just pre-ordered, so maybe that will make you smile. I can’t wait to read a story all about Mia.

  6. Is said neighbor still alive? Just wonderin! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I hope the weather calms for you all, what a mess. And since I just finished Rescue My Heart I need more Shalvis! Yes, I pre-ordered Under The Mistletoe. I cannot wait to read Mia’s story. Stay safe.

  7. Yes, the Idiots live among us. Hope things are getting better for you. Can’t wait to read Mia’s story!

  8. Sorry to hear about your bad luck,but somehow it is you! And on is not possible to preorder Under the mistletoe !

  9. I will buy your book tomorrow as a treat to myself. After this afternoon’s doctor appointment I will need a treat. I’m sorry that you had such a bad week-end. I hope your neighbor hasn’t given you any grief over something that he caused. You could always send a bear to his house.

  10. Yikes sorry I did laugh a but ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have though been waiting for under the mistletoe what seems 4ever since you asked us we wanted a new love for Mia or her to recapture her lost in Lucky Harbor

  11. Ok I helped improve your day and make mine a little brighter, I bought Under the Mistletoe! Good luck with your power situation, we were without power for 13 days following Hurricane Sandy. I can honestly say it is not fun. Please post pictures of the truck in the tree, could use a good laugh ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  12. So sorry about both cars! Hopefully idiot neighbor’s insurance will cover it since it was his fault. I do feel your pain! I saw on Facebook you were asking what everyone is driving. I have a 2011 Ford Escape in steel blue and I love it. It was one of the few things I was able to walk away with from Hurricane Sandy. Despite the fact that the entire neighborhood was under water (some places as high as up to 8 feet and it was so widespread it hit parts of the neighborhood that had never see water before), and for some reason unknown to me, the street I parked on was spared and therefore so was my truck. I adore my Ford, it’s everything I’ve wanted in a truck and I’m so, so, so grateful I still have her. ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. So sorry to hear what happened.. And I hope that he has good insurance..
    Your book is already on pre-order.. Has been since October… Can’t wait for tomorrow..

  14. so sorry Jill that this happened to you. I currently drive a cheverolet impala since I need a big back seat for two car seats. Hubby drives a hyundai accent. he needs one for better gas milage since he has to drive 30 miles to and from work. I just need mine to drop the eldest off at school.

    Have fun car shopping, I loved test driving all the cars!

  15. I’m sad for you! No power and two destroyed cars is a lot to deal with. Here’s hoping the new vehicles are delights and 1 can haul up a generator for you. ๐Ÿ™‚
