Tod put the merc in the ditch yesterday evening.
He was coming back from the recycling bins and driving down our chemin. In dry weather the chemin gets rutted and very dusty, so Tod was avoiding the ruts and driving on the bump in the middle and what he thought was the verge.
He left the merc there over night and went to see George this morning who has a big truck.
Trying to pull the merc out of the right hand ditch, George put his truck into the left hand ditch. So now two vehicles in two ditches.
Fortunately the merc was partly out. So Tod got the batmobile and pulled the merc out. Then the merc pulled the truck out.
Good job they hadn't been drinking - what would the neighbours think?
I'd never make a photo-journalist. I missed the whole thing reading postings on the Total France forum. So no pictures.
George, thanks for the help.
