    :angel: God was watching over us this day. My fiancee and I were on our way home from a visit to my parents' in Rogers, AR (north west Arkansas, north of Fayetteville) when on the interstate at the speed limit - which was 70 mph - the right front tire on my 2500 4x4 blew out, sending us through a small thicket of saplings and then into a 18" tree. My girl was very lucky to walk away from this wreck, as you can see from the pictures. It has been almost a month now and I am still getting myself back on schedule. Please keep us and my business in your prayers and thoughts.

    Sure looks like God was watching out from where I sit.

    Glad to hear you're both OK!

    More pics...
    This one is of my work trailer. The eXmark got messed up, too, but the digital camera didn't capture any pics of it before I got it fixed.

    They didn't go off, thank goodness, or Amanda would have been in worse condition than she was. She was transported by ambulance to the nearest hospital. Her knee is still messed up.
