    Today I cleared the driveway because the stupid rental vehicle only came with all season tires and got stuck!:mad:

    My wife hit a deer a couple of weeks ago with her Subaru so it's in the shop.
    $11,000 worth of damage. Almost a write off.

    Oh my gosh! That is a bad hit. I hate driving at this time of year. We drove 50 miles and saw a half dozen dead deer on the side of the expressway. You don't want to hit one doing 75 MPH.

    Good thing it wasn't a moose.
    Subaru's are tough vehicles. It could have been a lot worse.

    When I lived in Arizona a car hit some horses, they flipped, hooves through the window, killed the driver and passenger. Glad your wife was ok Mitch

    Firewood was supposed to be delivered mid-morning. 6:45am is not mid-morning! I was still in my pj's. Not stacking on racks this year. It's close to the basement so---tarps and done!

    Finished the lilies yesterday! What a job, I always forget how many I have. 3- 50 lb bags of kitty litter. Those heavy blue gloves I bought from home depot saved my hands!

    Today..............goofing off, well except for some laundry.

    Mitch my car fanatic hubby wants to know what model it is!

    I almost had to buy a new car, we looked at Toyotas, started to look at Subaru's. But then found a company that would replace my hybrid batteries for 1500 and one hour of work in our driveway, vs the $4000 and 3 days of work the dealer wanted. They offered me $100 for my car as a trade in. I didn't want to put 4k into it, but 1500 was doable.

    So now I have a new car again!

    We're getting all our windows replaced this week (aka - handing over all our money!) so my job today is to take down all the drapes and blinds and prep for that. I don't look forward to this week, but I do look forward to having new windows.

    I know several people into Body graffiti, they all started with one then connected another one, and another one, perhaps it suppose to tells a story who knows .... I don't understand it but it's got to mean something to those who do it, all I can think when I'm shown a new expansion is: ouch painful, and expensive

    Happy B-Day to your son @sissy , I know what you mean, I was looking at my 3 sons yesterday when we all got together and I can't believe that my oldest is 21 and out living with his girl, and my baby is already 14yrs ...time sure fly!

    Good to hear your wife was not hurt @MitchM
    I love my Subaru Legacy wagon but alas it is aging and will someday be replaced. 1991 was a long time ago but the car keeps on ticking. Has a few issues but it heals itself w/warming up. Also I have found if you turn up the radio it sounds even better :smuggrin:

    3rd rainy Sunday out of the past 4 Sundays. Did grocery shopping for the week; got holiday gift boxes listed on our website; did a little window washing and house cleaning; going to pick out a good movie for the afternoon, take it easy and cook pork chops with sauerkraut, roasted onions and potatoes for dinner. Did I mention a gin or tonic or two at some point?

    $11,000 Mitch! That's some hit. We had $6000 worth of damage to our Chevy Cruze just before the Summer. Just found out the other day the chances of hitting a dear in PA is 1 out of 62. At least we don't have to worry about moose.

    For that why was the car not totaled .Sure glad your wife did not get hurt .I had one major accident halloween night back in 1984 and the guy rear ended me doing 100 miles an hour and I was waiting to pull in my driveway and it can be scary .Him and the guys in the van all drunk and left 100 feet of skid marks and 2 cops saw the accident so it was all his fault .Totaled my car and dove it up my driveway right into the garage .Destroyed the door of the garage and one side and the garage was all concrete block .Never forget that

    Today's sauna day, so I'll be splitting wood before long, as it is wood fired. I'll light it off in a couple hours and cook myself later today. It will feel really extra good today, we had an inch of snow last night.
