She would love your cats to pieces, and to their annoyance. And bark incessantly at the deer.

Thanks all. It's great no one was injured and yes, the insurance is coming through no problem. I met the lady at the reporting centre and the P.C. that took the report said she admitted fault so my insurance has deemed me a not at fault claim.
I feel sorry for her because at 89 years old her insurance will rise to an unaffordable amount. Unfortunately for a senior of her age, it will probably increase by 400%, so my insurance agent told me. That's how it works in Ontario. We went for a coffee and she is a really nice lady, but, I think it's time to hang the keys up.

RJ, do you have the coverage that gets you a new car?

That's what I was thinking. I had to read the post twice to make sure I hadn't misunderstood.

Have a great time.

At least as long as the money holds out!

Have a great time in paradise Dawg. Just know that I am really jealous.

I'm coming down from a really yummy dinner. So yummy that Himself took one look at the roast and the sides and said "I think this meal needs a wine". Keep in mind that I'm the alchi in our house, so for him to suggest wine it had to be good!

Many thanks to Craig and his beef roast post.

Made a run to Penzeys today. Spent about $35 for a variety of herbs and spices. Since my last visit they rearranged the entire store.

While stuff is generally in alphabetical order, when they run out of room, the rest of the alphabet shows up in the oddest locations.

Oh, you want nutmeg? It's not between the "M"s and "O"s, it's over there with the baking spices. Peppercorns? No, not in the "P"s but over here in a separate Peppers section... No, sir, the chilies are not with the peppers, they have their own "Chilies" section.

$35? You got out cheap Andy! They do that rearranging so you have to wander the store every time and see things you had no intention of buying...but still do. Evil marketing. Did it work?

We plan on going over to that location within the next month or so. Any chance I could get a map of their layout from you? Never mind...I'll wander. And carry a big wallet.
