Last week there were kangaroos in the back paddock. Yesterday there was a bogged car. What the …
“You might want to bring your phone out the back ” said my hubby.
“If you want photos of a four wheel drive recovery. A car’s just gone into the creek.”
Sure enough, there it was. And as I walked out beyond our back yard, into a beautiful sunny Melbourne day, I saw the group of guys.
They grinned sheepishly as I approached.
“Nice day for a drive” I said amiably. “What happened?”
It was pretty obvious. They’d been doing “donuts”, cutting laps, looking to spin their apparently brand new Navara in a secluded patch of countryside, which just happened to be out the back of our place.
Seems they miscalculated the creek.
Lucky for them we were home. Lucky too we’re not unfamiliar with such misadventures.
It was just weeks ago that hubby ingeniously got us out of a bind at Toolangi when we got hung up on a log and he chainsawed us through.
Still, our escapades are not usually this close to our own house.
So today he was at it again. No chain saw required, instead it was the recovery gear out, snatch strap hooked on and on the second go he hauled their car out of the creek.
No lessons learned here, at least not for them it seemed.
Still, at least we got some rescue practice in before our upcoming road trip. Hopefully we won’t need it but no harm in being prepared.
Doesn’t hurt to help someone in need, even if the silly guys brought it on themselves. Oh well, that was our good deed done, right on our door step.
Speaking of good deeds I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me in the 2017 Annual Bloggers Bash Awards. The event was held last weekend in London.
I was thrilled to find out my blog took out equal runner up award in the Most Inspirational Blog Category. Congrats to all of the winners listed here.
Thank you so much to all of you, my friends, who have been along with me on this ride.
It’s such an honor to be part of this amazing community and I feel truly blessed. I’ve said it before but I honestly feel as though we’re all winners, spreading our own bit of joy in every post we share.
There’s no doubt that we all support and inspire each other, where ever we are, at home, in the back paddock or across the ocean. I love that we’re all in this together.
What a journey we’re on. Here’s to more adventures, and to loving life, on and off the tracks.
Keep enjoying it.
