- Good news, bad news

Mo's most beautiful Christmas card arrived ...

Transported VIA AIRMAIL from the land down under ...

So carefully crafted one can almost feel its textures, wishing it could be so.

It has been a consolation, getting lost in its tracery whilst contemplating the bad news ...


our new car, with a mere 197 miles on it, the agent of a randy buck's demise at 55 miles per hour.

whaa...does insurance cover that?

Liz Ackert said...

It will, but we now know to report a new car purchase to our insurance company before having an accident (sigh)

Marti said...

Are you both ok? From the looks of the photo, looks like quite the wallop!

Liz Ackert said...

We're fine and very grateful that the air bags didn't deploy!

Mo Crow said...

yikes!

Dana said...

Aw Liz, what a drag! I'm so glad you weren't hurt.
What a beautiful card from Mo. That at least is lucky.

Liz Ackert said...

Poor deer ... the car at least is fixable

Liz Ackert said...

Art as consolation ... yes, lucky indeed

Judy Martin said...

Wow - we have deer here too, and I (knock wood) have so far been lucky.
Keep safe.

Ooops! but as long as you're OK??
Fabulous card!

You are ok, that is the most important thing. Hope there will be a quick solution with the new car. In such moments a lovely card could help to cheer up.

Someone once said to us, "It's not about if you will hit a deer, it's about when." Thankfully, that comment led us to retain comprehensive car insurance coverage which includes collisions with animals. So thank you for your well wishes ... and I wish you the same!

Gill and Birgit... you are so right. Being unhurt is the most important thing ... the rest is just pesky details!
