No pictures today. Just wanted to pop in and let you know what is going on. On Friday, I was on my way to meet a friend for lunch and shopping. I was 50 feet from turning into the parking lot, and some old man turns left in front of me between 2 lanes of traffic and I broadsided him. Luckily, no one was hurt, although I thought of pounding him when he had the nerve to come up to my car and yell at me telling me that it was my fault. You can't argue with stupid people, so I told him to go away and he did. So my car had to be towed, and I am using a rental until we find out if my car will be fixed. I don't know whether it is good or bad. I am renting the kind of car that I have been wanting to buy in the same color that I wanted. A misty green Prius - You can't beat 50 miles a gallon, and that is the only reason that I want the car.
But, all of our cars were paid for, and we don't want to have to take out another loan for an expensive car. My car ran well and I like it. I hope that this guy's insurance company won't total it.
So anyway, I had some neck and shoulder pain for a couple of days, but luckily I have a lot of muscle relaxants and I feel pretty good today. Just bummed me momentarily today when I started thinking that we might have to make car payments again.
I'm a safe driver, and I always give myself lots of space between me and other drivers. It just goes to show you how something can happen in a split second that can change your life. I'm just glad that I was only going about 20-25 and was wearing my seat belt!!

Oh my goodness - thank heavens you are not injured. At the least, you can enjoy learning about the rental car. Soooo glad it wasn't worse.

Bummer, with everything else that's going on, top it off with a wreck really stinks! I'm trying to be more careful when I drive so I don't smash up someone else's car and life, but it's pretty scary when you think about all the people who are incompetent on the road. Just think how crazy it will all be when we all have flying vehicles and you'll have to watch the sky in addition to the road..... :)

Forgot to say, hope you get over the pain soon, and you and your car heal and get back to normal1

The same thing happened to me on Dec. 13TH!!! I just couldn't believe it. I am banged up and bruised still, but OK. and my car is totaled too, and I am not looking forward to car paymenets again, either...and my seatbelt saved my life, according to the paramedics...
