FrankenMarky....

Happy Freakin New Years...
This is how we welcome in the New Years 
here at One of the Jones....



my BIL Mark and his wife Esther were here 
over Christmas, 
and were driving back to Kamloops
The story is a little hazy to me, 
but they hit ice, and a fire truck hit them....
Talk about convenient...
Instant blankets and Jaws of Life..
(which by the way were required to take the roof off their  car
to get them out..)

 

As you can see...
Marky got a pretty bad uh....
thing.....
on his head...
They kept him in for observation...
I guess he also had a concussion

 

His wife has a dislocated shoulder...
and apparently both are pretty sore.
They are both so lucky to be alive.

 

The drugs kick in....

 

The drugs wear off...  :)

 

Fortunately they sent them back to the 
Cranbrook hospital, which is where my SIL lives...
Good...because they have no car..
no money....
Mark lost his glasses 
his shoe
and his shirt.
They are staying with my SIL until they get things under control..

Oh...did I mention...
He and his wife just got married this summer?




(LA shaved Marks head...)

We are really glad everyone is ok...
and we thank God for His care and protection...



and as Marky says..


"I'm alive and kicking...
Ow...that hurt..."

or 


"I've had worse....
It's just a flesh wound...
Have at you..."
