Q: Why cant I post new stories? :(

A: Do you know?

Taken along scenic route to the Tuscan village of Vinci, birthplace of Leonardo Da Vinci. I quickly took this shot, hoping to capture some of the beautiful tree farm we were passing, along with our car’s dashboard. Later, when I pulled up this image on my computer screen and saw my husband’s hand on the wheel, I shook and again thanked God. A little over a month ago my husband Fred miraculously survived a major car crash on the divided highway between Florence and Siena. An eighty-five year old man driving on the wrong side of the highway caused the crash. Thankfully, Fred turned the wheel in time to avoid a direct head on hit. Still, both cars were totaled. Fred ended up with just a few scratches and a swollen ankle. The elderly man was critically hurt, but is till hanging in there.
