Such a lot of bother and waste all because someone didn't take the time to familiarize himself with the vehicle he was driving that day.
I get a rental car while mine is being repaired but can't get it until Monday because I don't live in the city. I pleaded with the body shop to find a way to fix the car instead of totaling it. Because I won't go into debt, a replacement would be limited by the value set by the insurance company and whatever I could add from my savings account...not likely to be something as comfortable as my 12 year old Audi! When asked if I minded used parts I assured them that I PREFERRED used parts (reuse and recycle!).
So, it looks like I get to keep my darling old car. Yay!
The weather has been so cold that all the local schools cancelled classes today. I was tempted not to take the garbage out this morning, but figured since I had to go out and do chores anyway...
I did put up a heating lamp in the coop. When the eggs are freezing, the chickens need the extra heat source. Something is keeping them going. Sixteen eggs today.
