Well, there's good news and there's bad news...

Which would you like first? The bad news? That's what I always want to hear first.

Dave was providing service to some ward members today. The first act of service he was hauling a broke-down car on a U-Haul trailer to his new home. The U-Haul guy put the trailer on the truck, as company policy dictates.

Unfortunately, in his haste, the U-Haul guy didn't clamp down the trailer correctly, and it ended up causing quite a bit of damage to our truck. I will probably schedule an estimate tomorrow. U-Haul will cover all repair costs for us.

Here is the bulk of the damage. This is our truck's tailgate. There is other damage as well but I haven't edited out my license plate number from the picture yet so this is what I'm willing to post :)

The good news... DAVE IS WORKING TOMORROW!!! It's been way too long between jobs, the longest he's ever gone in the union. Thanks to a slow economy and lots of red tape, there are fewer projects going on this summer and it's taking a long time to get state approval for projects that actually are already awarded. It's a flagging job, which Dave hates, but it's a job, and we'll take it. We're so grateful our prayers were answered. Hopefully he'll be getting the more permanent Olympia job soon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
