Thank God for good friends who will come get you at 4:30 am. The wife is going to be ok but is very banged up and will be couch ridden for the next week so we will just have Thanksgiving here and God help us I will be cooking turky and dressing for the first time.
    Sorry to hear that. I'm glad things are not any worse and you and your wife will be in our prayers.

    OH MAN,
    I am sorry to hear that. I'm glad nothing worse happened to your Wife, sorry about your car too. I hope your son is holding up ok. I don't know what to say.... That's a crummy way to start the Holidays.
    Good Luck with the Turkey Dinner too. You & your family are in our thoughts.

    Sorry to hear about that Maximo. Drunk drivers suck! Hope all turns out well.

    Iím filing a lawsuit against my father regarding a real estate transaction gone very very wrong. Hoping to serve him along with the turkey. Sounds like fun, eh?

    Thanks for all the well wishes guys. I just got off the phone with the guy working on my car and he said the timing belt broke but the pistons were fine, and while he is in the engine I am having the water pump replaced too. So it will be back up later today.
    Last week I cut about 1/2 inch off the pinky on my left hand and had it put back on and looks like I will have total use of it again, and coming back from my brother in-laws wedding last weekend the alternator went out on my car 47 miles from home and had to have it towed in. I finally got the alternator changed out on Friday so to celebrate the wife and I went to see Casino Royal. She had just dropped off the baby sitter and was 4 blocks from her house when she was hit. But you know what, she is going to be fine, my finger still works, my car will be fixed today, I have a house of my own a great kid, food, good friends both physical and online, and a safe full of guns I love, so the way I see it I am one lucky dude and have a lot to be thankful for.
    Everyone have a great Thanksgiving.

    Man, Maximo, I'm sorry to hear that! At least she is alright. And you have something to be real thankful for this year!

    When I was in the fourth grade, my mom, a friend of mine, and me were in our '83 Toyota Corolla when we got broadsided by a drunk in a huge Lincoln. That darn little car spun all over the road like a top. Somehow, no one was killed or even hurt. From that day fourth my mom has been convinced I am made out of rubber. He hit the back end, right where I was sitting, and threw me onto my friend's lap. The seat belt didn't make it. None of them did.

    Thank God for small blessings. That car was accident prone, but before we got rid of it I thanked it for saving my life and the lives of my parents on numerous occassions. It was involved in six accidents with someone inside and two while empty. These included the one above, being side swiped by an 18-wheeler, and being hit by the car of a guy being chased by the cops at high speeds.

    Then there was our '76 Oldsmobile Cutless Supreme that got hit by a drunk. It was the head of the board of education in our town... and he hit us while my mom was picking me up from school, so it was right in front of the grade school.

    Just make sure he doesn't have the carving knife when you do.
