I need to catch up on what's been going on. Our anniversary was great. We enjoyed the morning.
I received several new books which is a great present since I enjoy reading. I gave my wife a card that had in it an appointment card for the new Apple store downtown. It said your gift awaits you. She has been talking about the IPhone, so she was very happy. In fact, there were squeals of delight. She went to the store, picked out the 3 G IPhone, an Apple blue tooth, a protective case and a few other goodies. We then met up for a nice lunch at a restaurant.
In the afternoon, I had a couple of errands to run. After making my last stop, I was pulling out of a parking lot to make a left turn. It was just about dark. There was a fair amount of traffic. I looked both ways, saw an opening and pulling out to move to the opposing lane. Suddenly, there was a car coming right towards me. I saw their expressions right before they slammed into the side of Blue. The airbag exploded on impact.
Thankfully, no one was hurt. The ambulance came and a couple of the people in the other car were checked but no one was injured. I told the officer that I had looked carefully before pulling out but didn't see the car until it was right on me. Their headlights weren't on but their parking lights were.
Both cars had to be towed off. Blue is sitting at the BMW place with the driver's door and the quarter panel smashed in. I'm not sure what the insurance adjustor will say. The tow truck driver thought that she might be totalled. I hope not. I love that car.
Anyway, the best thing about this is that no one was injured. Everyone was civil and caring. The police officer was a good guy. And good insurance will help with restitution for damages incurred.
I got a ride home around 9:30 PM. My wife was thankful that everyone was okay. She said, "Well, the car is only a thing. But you're everything to me. "
I have a lot of gratitude for that. And for the great Thanksgiving day in which we could make a few jokes at my expense about the fact that I had just said the other day that I had never had an accident. Never say never!
I'll catch up with each of you as soon as I can. I'm off to a meeting in Florida today. And yes, I'm driving......
