Oh, Deer!
Welcome New Subscribers! 
Living in a rural area like I do, it's almost impossible to go through life without ever hitting a deer on the road. Wednesday this week, it was my turn.  I was on the interstate - driving slowly because there was a lot of traffic - and I was less than a mile from my exit. I was driving right alongside a semi, when suddenly a deer hopped out from in front of his truck. The deer couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 feet from my vehicle when I saw it.  And of course, it slammed into my side. The passenger door and window were smashed along with half of the windshield. 
I am fine - I wasn't even sore the next day. I drove off to the side of the road, called my husband, the police, my daughter, the insurance company, and a tow truck. I was glad my phone was fully charged.
Dealing with the accident, getting a rental car, and waiting for the repair to be done will be a hassle, but I don't mind it, knowing this could have been much worse. I am truly thankful that I was not hurt and that I did not hurt anyone else (except the deer).  
I'm planning to spend the weekend with my sisters - knitting, eating, and relaxing. It will be a good week after all!  
I hope you enjoy reading the posts this week - they are a couple of my favorites. Share the newsletter with your family and friends! If you are reading your friend's newsletter, you can sign up for your own

Transportation Problems

Although I’ve been to Europe several times – and used some sort of public transportation each time – I can’t say that there haven’t been problems.  Each time there is a problem, though, I learn how to avoid it or prepare for it for the next time I travel.

Research and preparation is the best way to avoid problems, but sometimes even when I’ve been well prepared, I make mistakes or run into something that is unavoidable.


Rail strikes are common in Europe. On one trip we had planned...

Worship in a Foreign Language

Europe has the most amazing churches!  Years ago when my aunt visited Europe for the first time, she insisted that she would not be bringing home tons of pictures of churches like her friends had.  “Seeing that many churches has to be boring,” she said.  When she returned from her trip, however, she had filled rolls of film with the same pictures of the beautiful churches and cathedrals.

Cathedrals were often built by the most prominent architects of the time.  In every city, town or even village, there is at least one church, and all are worth visiting.  Many are open to the public...
