Our poor cars!
This isn't my car, but the dented bumper looks the same as mine. Yesterday morning wasn't a good morning for me! John had used my car and he pulled it into the garage so close to the left hand side. I was pulling out to go to work and I was being so careful because I didn't want to take the sideview mirror off that guess what I forgot his car was parked out in the driveway! Yes, I hit it with my car. I quickly jumped out of my car to see how much damage I did. Well I couldn't believe it!! My bumper on the driver's side was completely dented in and starting to pull away from the car. John's little Scion TC had a big dent in it right in front of the back driver's side tire. He called the insurance agent and they are treating it like 2 separate crashes. They are charging us $500.00 deductible per vehicle. I know it was my fault but do insurance companies ever pay anything for accidents-really! John took my car this morning to get an estimate and it will cost $700.00 to get it fixed. So we will be paying the $500.00 ded and the ins. company will be paying $200.00. Does that seem fair to you after all we pay in car ins.! He was taking his car this afternoon. I don't even want to know what the cost of the repair will be on that one. We looked and because he has a 2-door car the panel I dented goes from the front of the car to the back tail light. One of the guys at work said we should just stay in our house and lock the door for a few days with all the bad luck we have been having! I told him the house would probably fall down around us! Atleast no one got hurt and the cars are repairable. I have never had an accident or any fender benders either, John is usually the one that has bad luck with cars. I guess in a matter of speaking he still does!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
