Downtown Fashions

I cannot remember the rest of this sign, but it was seen in Newnan, Georgia....and it just struck my funnybone. The wig part. Just something about seeing that followed by prom dresses...just who is going to the prom?

By the way, it is Newnan, not Newman as I originally thought. I misread the sign...
************
We got up and headed to Terre Haute this morn, originally to go by the book store but decided to go to Hobby Lobby first. We had left there and were sitting at a stoplight and we were rear ended...a pretty good hit. We had our seat belts on...I did not notice at first but stuff, mainly change, had flew out of the cubbyhole; I had a can of Coke and some of it had splattered out.
We at least walked away from it....
Edited to add:
I told Roger other than the first three or four years of our marriage, I don't think we have had a single vehicle that hasn't been involved in at least one wreck...some more than one. And only one was my fault.

It is not even funny. I don't even think I can remember all of them...off the top of my head I can remember nine. One of them don't count in ways...someone hit us from behind but it was so minor we could not see any damage so we all just went on.

On the other hand, we had a Dodge minivan that seemed to have a bull's eye on it. We had had it 6 months when Roger was coming home from work...down a 4 lane highway...55mph and this old man got confused at a stoplight and turned in front of him. The old man was hurt...

We got t-boned in it...no one hurt. But both it and the one above really did a lot of damage to the van.

I was going to pick up my daughter at school and a girl pulled out in front of me...I was right at the cross street and even though I was only going 25-30 mph, I couldn't stop when the teenager pulled out in front of me. But it didn't hurt the van too much nor me at all...

Then Roger had it at work and someone went to pull through a parking space and pulled into him. It was one of the guys I didn't know. But thankfully, Roger had a buddy with him...the guy that hit him started to claim it wasn't his fault and Roger reminded him he had a witness.

I feel like I am forgetting something that happened with the van....but I think 4 accidents is a lot for one vehicle.

I don't think the rest of our families combined has been involved in this many wrecks.

A remarkable history of wrecks. I hope the current one didn't leave you with some whiplash.

George said...

I think you've had enough auto accidents for several lifetimes. But I'm glad you were able to walk away from all of them. But I do hope you will try to remove that target from any future vehicles!

It's a funny photo. But the rest of your story is just plain scary! Good grief...what a run of bad luck...

Rose, I hope you or Roger are not feeling any ill effects from the accident, those things happen so quickly and we sometimes don't realize any bad effects until the next day when you have a headache or stiff neck! Take care! Funny sign, weird combos of things available...also your Redneck Gourmet brought a smile for me on your previous post! Have a great week, drive on over to see Lorelei, a hug from her will make you feel so much better!

Glad you are okay and hope you are hurting tomorrow! Strange sign!

Neal said...

Remind me not to ride with you the next time we come out. :) Do those accidents include the one on US36 going towards Indy when it was raining hard? Was your vehicle damaged very much?

I'm glad that neither of you were hurt. It is much easier to mend cars than people.

Mary said...

You are so fortunate to have not been hurt in these wrecks. Maybe you need a really bright colored car.

Carolina said...

Hmm, so this is how it happened. Remind me not to get into a car with you, should we ever meet ;-)

It isn't funny and yet in a way it sort of makes you laugh a little. That's a crazy number of accidents!

That's terrible Rose. So glad ya'll weren't hurt.

As many times as I've been thru Newnan I've never noticed that sign. lol. Just in case you don't know that is the home town of Doug Stone and Alan Jackson.
