Editor's Note

Was in a car accident this afternoon. Was at a red light .... two cars collided in front of me and one of them crashed into mine. All involved are OK .... but it could have been very bad. Fortunately ... I was driving the GF's old SUV .... so no great loss.
:)
My big problem was getting back home .... but I am here now, and blogging should be back within the hour.

WNU was driving a 'beater'.

Cars which are not pretty. The shine of the pain is gone or they have dents and rust.

But they are paid for and they can be reliable.

Aizinio. My car is a 2016 BMW 5. I switched with the GF because I am transporting materials to redo my kitchen and her basement .... and I do not want to do it in my nice car. She has another SUV (which her daughter is driving since her mom is driving my car) .... so no great loss. But man .... I did like her old SUV ... and I am sure her daughter will be wondering if we will be getting her a car of her own.

Now .... I envy my brother. He has a new car, but he is still driving his old Ford pickup truck. It's 20+ years old .... and it is still going strong.

Joe. I did get your email and I put it in the folder "to respond". Life has just been a bit hectic this past week. but I will be emailing you back this weekend when life has quieted down.

Glad you're ok - and everyone else!
Personally, I refuse to drive anything that won't win in an accident.... Raised 5 kids & have 8 grandkids (and counting) - refuse to put any of them at risk. Glad you had an older SUV - the newer ones seem like they're made of fiberglass...
