Good Luck

I've had trouble getting office time to do paperwork this month.  Between having a lot of depos and conferences outside the office, and the weather, I've struggled to keep up.  So with all day Friday in the office, I was making some progress.  Until around 1:30 when Ann called on my cell.  I couldn't take the called because I was on the land line with a client.  Before we could conclude that call, she called again.  Then as soon as I hung up, she called yet again.

"My car is on fire," she said.

She was on her way home from a week of radiation treatments in Lexington.  She was an hour and a half from home - two hours from my office.  And she was standing beside the Mountain Parkway in 20 degree temperatures watching her Mini Cooper burn beside the road.  She has much more about it at her blog.

Despite losing the car, and the Downton Abbey themed birthday cake for my son's girlfriend's birthday party at our house, Ann is fine.  Our kids and my son's girlfriend came in yesterday, the family made a cake (my job was to take photos)  and we ate pulled pork, baked beans and cole slaw from Pig in a Poke.  On fine china - Downton Abbey style.  The kids took Ann back to Lexington with them this evening for her last radiation treatments.

I think Oriana had a good time

As Ann's friend, Jamie, pointed out - my wife has beat cancer and escaped a burning car recently.  She's tough and lucky, that one.
