A “Sunday Drive”, a Family Visit, Grocery Shopping, and a Winning Photograph

We stayed home most of the day on Sunday. We did go on a short “Sunday drive”. I brought my camera, but I didn’t take one still image. I did, however, take a short 5-second video with my iPhone as traffic began to move past an automobile accident.

In the video displayed above, there is a car, with a smashed windshield, in front of the police car. It looked like either the passenger’s head had busted through the windshield or an object had fallen through the windshield. My heart leaped into my throat, when I saw that car.  There was an older man in the car, sitting in the driver’s seat.  Farther up the road, we saw a helicopter land in what must have been a staging area. I said a prayer for the person(s) life flighted and for the family.  I pray that no life was lost in this accident.

**UPDATE:  Roadside Worker Killed After Being Struck by Car
How tragic.  Prayers for the Michael Robertson family, as well as the man who was driving and his family.**

On our way back home, we stopped briefly at Stacey’s house to say hello to Stacey and our granddaughters. Our visit with Stacey was brief. Bob wanted to be home for a 2:00 pm podcast (Leo Laporte “The Tech Guy”), and we still had grocery shopping to do. Shopping at Walmart was unremarkable. We returned a Redbox DVD that we had rented the day before and picked up some groceries.

A guest on Leo Laporte’s podcast was Photographer Chris Marquardt, of Discover the Top Floor”, who reviewed his “Faces in Things” photo assignment. Chris is a regular guest on the podcast. During Chris’s guest appearances, he gives listeners a photo assignment once a month.  Bob participates in the photo assignments.  The past month’s photo assignment has been to find “Faces in Things”.

Bob’s “Faces in Things” submission was top pick in the assignment!  Congratulations Bob!  What a GREAT photograph!

    One never knows what he/she will see when getting out and taking a ride, do we?????? It’s always good to have a camera nearby… We are headed to the Smokies tomorrow for a couple of days… We have had nothing but rain here FOREVER it seems…. So—hopefully, we will get away from the rain and dreariness for awhile… BUT–even if it rains, we’ll enjoy the time away…

    Hugs,
    Betsy
