Stricken E, Stumpy, and Stricken Ann, driving through Oklahoma.

Stricken Ann brought Stumpy (the gnome) to Texas to meet Stricken E. They hit it off right away. Stricken Ann is a good match-maker.

The Jeep is finally fixed, so the Strickens decided to go for a drive in the snow. Hopefully Stricken Ann doesn’t get into another accident.

Jen got home from work to discover that Stricken Ann had gone off-roading in her Jeep… and crashed it. Thankfully, she was uninjured in the accident. However, she won’t be going anywhere for awhile and the Jeep will have to be towed to Ed’s Auto Body and Repair.

Stricken Ann flew to Texas (with Jen) to help Stricken E move home (with Ashley).  They enjoyed a trip across the country hanging out in Sing Sing (Ashley’s Ford Escape) and in Moby (the rented white Ford Expedition XLT).
