The Chain


The other day, I saw an SUV at the bottom of the gravel road. Telling the Pres, I saw him shrug and to tell you the truth didn't give it a second thought...until the phone rang.

It was a friend of ours telling us that our neighbor's wife was stuck in a snowbank at the bottom of the hill.

And with that, the Pres was off.

She had tried to make the hill, couldn't so decided to back down to get a running start.

Instead, she backed into a snowbank and her hubby couldn't get her out with his SUV.

However, the ATV couldn't get her out either.  The strap broke.  Doing the next best thing, the Pres went down with the big, red Dodge Ram and the chain.






He got her out and was back in his chair in record time.

You are good to help! I've had to dig my car out in the driveway twice in two days. Pretty sick of it. And more's acomin'! Be prepared.

My oh my you've had the snow. It looks really pretty on the fence in that first shot. Your hubby was so nice to help out the neighbor lady. That would have been me at the bottom of the hill too. I don't drive well in winter at all.

a wonderful gesture indeed.

Margaret Adamson said...

Pres to the rescue. Hurray!

Bob Scotney said...

Glad we don't get snow that bad, even if we can manage a snowy fence from time to time. Pres seems to be well geared up for the rescue effort.

As someone who has a history of being rescued by four wheeler, I know she must have REALLY appreciated it!

Good neighbor to the rescue! Well done.

Pauline Woodcock said...

I have one particular neighbour who is always the one who comes to my rescue. Fate seems to pick on him. Even if I stop at the side of the road to take a photo he will come along and stop to see if I'm OK. Believe me, good neighbours who come to the rescue are truly appreciated. I like your fence scene, too.

my brother used to drive around on his big ATV, with a chain, just looking for people to pull out of the ditch. He always carried a couple of thermos of hot coffee and cocoa too.
and with our Canadian winters, he always found people needing the help!
