Eric said to say Thanks

Eric said to tell everyone thank you for your prayers.

Please continue to pray for us as we are going through difficult times .

We have to track down Ricks brother who is a homeless guy that is hard to find, but lives in San Antonio.

His sister knows where.

He will have to sign the paper to get the title transfered over so that we can go and pick up the car.

I talked to Eric's chef at work and he is very understanding about all of this.

Pray that the man who caused this accident is a decent person and had insurance and that everything gets taken care of ASAP so that we can get back to normal.

Pray for me as I have to be strong even though I want to cry myself because I feel so helpless.

Although I know that God is in control and things will work out.

Pray for Eric that he won't get depressed and down on himself about this.

I have told him that it wasn't his fault and that there was nothing you could do when someone hits you like that.

There is a reason for everything.

God has great plans for my son.

His angels were watching over him last night.

He is my world and I would NOT want to be here without him.

Thank you again.

I will be reading your comments, but if I don't respond to them please do not be offended as I have alot of work to do to get this back to normal.

God Bless you all

And most important.......HUG YOUR CHILDREN and tell them you love them.


There Has Been An Accident

Last night when Eric left to go home it was raining pretty heavy.

On the way home a truck hydroplaned in front of him and the truck in front of him swerved and hit Erics car knocking him under the first truck.

His windsheild was completely busted out.  God was with Eric because he only got some cuts and bruises.

Rick and Eric just went to pick up the car and since the car was still in his Moms (Rick's) name, they wouldn't release the car.

They will be charging us per day that it stays there.

This is the same car that we just put 3,000.oo into for a new engine.

All new tires.

Now there it sits in the impound until we can transfer the title which involves the death certificate and everything.

Eric is fine though and that is all that really matters to me.

So here we are again.  No car for Eric to drive back and forth to work and to visit us.

They are on their way home right now.

It is still pouring down rain.

I need prayers.

And while you are praying I ask that you thank God that Eric is ok.

All of the other stuff will just have to be taken one day at a time.......

On the way home from Erics accident we saw another bad one.  A car hit another car from behind and totally flipped it into the air.

Well, Girl Potato Mrs. Potato Headand Boy Potatomr potato head

had eyes for each other,

and finally they got married,

and had a little sweet potato,

which they called 'Yam.'

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

When it was time,

they told her about the facts of life.

They warned her about going out

and getting half-baked,

so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed,

and get a bad name for herself like

'Hot Potato,'

and end up with a bunch of Tater Tots. 

Yam said not to worry,

no Spud would get her into

the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!

But on the other hand

she wouldn't stay home

and become a Couch Potato either. couch potato couch potato

She would get plenty of exercise

so as not to be skinny
like her Shoestring cousins.

When she went off to Europe ,

Mr.  1997 Mr Potato Head.JPGand Mrs. PotatoMrs. Potato Head told Yam

to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland . 

And the greasy guys from France

called the French Fries.

And when she went out west,

to watch out for the Indians

so she wouldn't get scalloped.

Yam said she would stay on

the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate

with those high class Yukon Golds,

or the ones from the other side of the tracks

who advertise their trade

on all the trucks that say,
Jason Robs the Frito-Lay Factory! ...
'Frito Lay.'

Mr.1997 Mr Potato Head.JPG and Mrs. PotatoMrs. Potato Head sent Yam to Idaho P.U.

(that's Potato University )

so that when she graduated

she'd really be in the Chips.37MV - Frito Lay End 2.jpg ...

But in spite of all they did for her,

one-day Yam came home and announced

she was going to marry Tom Brokaw.

Tom Brokaw!

Mr.1997 Mr Potato Head.JPG and Mrs. Potato Mrs. Potato Headwere very upset.

They told Yam she couldn't

possibly marry Tom Brokaw

because he's just.......

Are you ready for this?

Are you sure?

OK! Here it is!
