The Goddess of Medium Things

Friday January 4:  

Keith and I have arrived in Syracuse for Erin's wedding.  108 and 8 miles out, my son Graham's car broke down; he was traveling separately because he had to be back at college..  He got towed all the way from Batavia to Syracuse.  Tomorrow morning, my husband will examine the car to see if it can be saved, if he can repair it.

My daughter's wedding is tomorrow.

Today, Tuesday January 8:

We arrived safely home last night.  The wedding was wonderful, and I may post about it later.  We towed the Jetta, Graham’s car, to a friend’s house and rented a car.  Graham drove Keith’s car and we drove the rental.

We will be returning to Syracuse to repair the car.

The plain facts do not illustrate the difficulties involved, but I’m still too tired to review them.  (And no one probably wants to hear the unpleasant details.)  We are all OK and that’s what’s important. 

I thank the Goddess of Medium Things for keeping us all safe for the duration.

What a nightmare, however you pulled through even though you still have to go back to sort the car out.

Glad you had a good time at the wedding.

It was a trial for sure, thanks John!
