An Experience I'd Rather Not Repeat.

The good news is, we are home safely from band practice.

The bad news?  Our car is totalled.

About 1/2 way home, a huge kangaroo decided to jump out on the road, and we collided head-on.  I am absolutely astounded just how much damage can happen in a split second, and how much a car can crumple with one thump.

Fortunately, we were able to continue our drive home, all be it with a very buckled bonnet, and a front door that will probably never open again.

Of course, the best news is that all four of us are fine.  However, it's an experience I'd rather not repeat any time soon.  :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. Yes, kangaroos can do a lot of damage to a car. Ours was written off some months ago when my husband had a similar experience. Glad to hear no one was hurt.

God bless.

Thank God you are all well, it must have been quite a shock.
