Houston...we have a Problem....

As I was headed home, last night... from a delivery...and pick up....where I bought some...very cool stuff....for the Garden Party...I jumped on the Interstate... in Heavy...Rush Hour Traffic... to watch ...helplessly...as this Amazing Old Chandelier....ever so gently...flipped...out the side of the bed...then...hook on it....just as you see it...here...
I put my flashers on...and hugged the shoulder, best I could...Praying...the Old Darling would Hold on...Hold On...until I got the Truck Stopped...
With 3 full lanes of traffic....Flyin' by...It was several minutes...before there was enough of an opening...in traffic...for me to get out of the Ford...let alone....stand next to it....
Holy Smokes!
The first thing...that came to mind...as I watched this...potential...mess unravel....is...
Houston...we have a Problem....
I still don't know what I did wrong...when I tied this in... I over tie...everything....
It was like, the Old Chandelier...just wanted to see a little more scenery....and get a better look...
Oh Boy!
I have miles to cover this morn...then I have to get down the Rabbit Hole...
Love to Ya...

{I wanted to get the image...on the Interstate...had my camera...in my pocket...but..I gotta tell ya... I knew...with every second...I stood there...it could be my last...or...cause an accident... oh my....If I could have just gotten off the shoulder...more...but there was a Big Curb...and I was afraid to jump it...and risk losing the Chandelier..the fun...never ends... : ) }

LOL @ "the fun...never ends... That is the truth!!! Once on I-70 somewhere in IL, IN, or OH people started waving at us as they passed. Finally we decided it wasn't because they were being friendly. Our rear trailer doors were open and we were leaving a trail of packing blankets, etc.

Ahhh...The Journey!
Love, to Ya!
