~Hit by a Kangaroo~



Tuesday morning I woke up and saw Mr Armchair on the couch all dressed for work
I thought I had said bye to him earlier as he headed off for his long commute to work......2 hours
Turns out half an hour into the trip a 'roo came out of nowhere and straight into the right hand side
Can't even  open the driver's door now
So now we are waiting to see what the insurance says about the damage!!!

But the most important thing is he's all right!!!

Phew! glad your sweetheart was not hurt! We have wild deer here in England and the same thing happens with similar results.
I hope you can get another car organised soon.

Hello Dzintra,

Hope you can get it fixed quickly. That happened to 2 of our cars last year,plus hubby needed stitches when he pulled back the metal from the tyre so we could get it driven back home.

Have a lovely weekend.
Bev.
