My odd sense of humor

Okay, I admit, I do have an odd, quirky sense of humor. But it runs in my family so they understand me. About a week and a half ago, I got a phone call from my mom while I was at church. It was one of those phone calls that you knew something was up immediately. She was at the E.R. with my eighty three year old grandfather. Everything turned out okay. Here's the story: he was pulling his truck either into or out of the garage, put it in park and then got out. when he got in front of it, the truck started rolling, hit him, flipped him and then ran over his arm and his leg. Fortunately his neighbor was outside, stopped the truck before it went through her house and was able to help him into the house. By some miracle, he had no broken bones or permanent damage and only has cuts and bruises. So I call him to see how he is doing he is cutting up and saying he should have the truck arrested for attempted murder. So here is the card he is getting in the mail; a truck in a jail cell. The closest thing that I have to a truck stamp is this Riley in a van stamp. To make the jail, I added the Lockup bars from the Busted Hanna set. He will get the joke and it will give him a chuckle. It's a very basic, simple card because that is what he likes the most. Sorry for the wonky angle of the photo, I forgot to take a picture so I pulled it out and took a quick one. I also used a wishing you well stamp from EK Success, CTMH White Daisy ink, and a photo corner punch. Oh yeah, this was his old work truck that I think my mother has forced him to finally retire.

When I looked at your card and started reading your story, I thought it was going to end up that your grandfather got put in jail for not controlling his vehicle. I'm glad it's only his vehicle that's in trouble and that he wasn't hurt badly.
