sorry guys my listings have not been what i had hoped...this is a new kit, in the shop!
it's been a strange week, i've felt like i've been operating in slo-mo. the big guy has been really sick with a fever and called tuesday, just wanted mum to know. it's hard that he lives far away, it was all i could do to not drop everything and bring him food and be there with him. yesterday he was coming home to do some errands, car inspection, banking and stuff, getting ready for his big european adventure this summer. i felt so proud and impressed that he was planning so far in advance. he called me as he was leaving, and it was so good to hear his voice - he sounded so much better! then i got a call about an hour and a half later, "mom i'm 100% totally fine," and some guy bellowing next to him, "get off the phone!" that was a long few minutes until he called back. he had been in an accident, flipped his car twice and landed on the guard rail! everyone; the dr, officer, and junk yard guys all said, he's very lucky, that if he hadn't been wearing his seat belt things would have been very different, even still ~ he's VERY lucky! this was his first trip to the hospital, ever, and only a few minor scrapes, very lucky indeed! we've always called him the golden boy, good fortune seems to follow him, so glad this day it shined on him. all i know is today we are all so very grateful to have him, to be able to hold him, and tell him we love him!
this photo is when he turned 16, the day my father-in-law gave him his old honda. he was thrilled! my father-in-law bought it about six months before the big guy was born, and when he was little he put a puffy dandelion seed in the back ashtray, and it was still there. he appreciates little things like that, very sentimental he is. he loved that car, lots of great memories, like an old friend, and is sad that it's gone. fortunately it can be replaced. in 25 days we'll be celebrating all the more on big guy's 21st b-day ~ that is for sure!
