PROBLEM AT THE END OF THE BEAN FIELD!!!!
Keep barking Boomer!!! We have to let Mom and Dad know there is a wreck at the end of the bean field!
Okay, Fuzzy! HAWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!
“Terry, what’s wrong with the dogs? They sound like something bad is in the yard.”
“I don’t know…you see anything?”
“WOW! Yes! Looks like there is a jeep in the canal!”
“Sure does, I’ll go down and see what happened.”
“Okay, the girls and I will stay here. Shhhh boys! Good dogs!”
Come on Fuzzy let’s go with Dad and see what the deal is.
Aaaaa… you go Boom. I had better stay here with Mom and the little girls. We can’t both be gone…Mom might need one of us. You go.
You are back, Boom…what did you find out?
Yeah, I had to come back, the Sheriff men were down there and sorta, kinda yelled at me for sniffing around one of the car’s tires. So I lifted a leg real fast, doused his tire and took off for home.
Chuckle, snort! That’s good one, Boomer! Well, done.
So what happened anyway?
I heard the man, who was driving the jeep, tell Dad that he was coming down off 25 Mesa and missed the turn. He saw there was a nice shoulder on the road so thought he would back up then make the turn.
He was backing up when suddenly the jeep slid and fell right into the canal.
The man said he didn’t know there was a canal THERE!!!!
(That is the pipe which, held up the Jeep)
Dad told the man he was really lucky because the pipe holding the telephone cable in it (which ran the length of the canal) saved his jeep. Otherwise the jeep would have flipped over on its top and been swooshed right under the road…with the man in it!
Dad offered to get the jeep out for the man, but he wanted a wrecker to do it. Seems the man had just retired and used his retirement money to buy this jeep 9 days ago. He was afraid a farmer and tractor might wreck his jeep.
WRECK?!?!? His jeep! I guess he doesn’t think the jeep is wrecked right now!
I guess wreck is relative, Fuzzy.
Oh! Dad’s good friend came out with his wrecker (Dub’s Towing)
and hooked onto the roll bar….lifted it right up!
Dad, Pepper’s Dad, and several of the
firewood cutters coming down off the plateau were very impressed at Dub’s Towing. Not a scratch, or dent on the jeep. And the jeep didn’t slip once—which is a good thing, because all that water was still roaring away down there and would have sucked the jeep right on in under the road!
Good report, Boomer! This was an exciting day!
It sure was Fuzzy. Time for a nap, don’t you think!
Yes I do, Boom. Yes I do.
Fuzzy and Boomer
