What am I doing? I'm sitting on an airplane flying home from Charlotte, after working today in Forrest City, NC. I flew in last night, and was very happy to fly out today. I did actually have a good lunch at the Charlotte airport, but the rest of my time in NC sucked, as it always does. Bad hotel (spent 116 bucks to sleep in a worn out bed -- my neck still hurts), road rage drivers, fast food haven... the "good" places in NC from my observation are no better than Applebee's. Probably better on the NC Atlantic coast, where you can get fresh seafood that doesn't come from a place called "Fatz."

Sorry, maybe I should have posted this in the "Petty Vents" thread. I've just never had a good experience in the Carolinas. I can say that NC is at least a little better than Alabama.

I am going to be very happy to see my kitchen, when I get home. That, and drivers who may not be the best, but don't drive like they want to kill each other. I didn't get involved in any of that crap, but I saw things that made me wonder if all these drivers just got fired and found out their spouses were cheating on them on the same day.

PF 1, thank God.

Dh also hit a deer, last week, mostly body damage to the car, DH is fine, adjuster gave us a check for the body work, no internal damage on the car, deer meat. It was 2 am and he was on his way home from work.

I'm on day three of fermenting sausage, about 10 lbs, the rest of the deer is canned and steaks are frozen.

It's always such a shock to hit a deer or to have a deer hit your car. I hit one 10 years ago and it freaked me out and I lost some confidence on the road after that. I also hit the deer on the way home from work. The deer I hit, bounded, ironically, into the cemetery. Seemed like an appropriate place for the deer to die.

I was on a jury duty once for a guy that was drunk, on his motor cycle, going home from the bar, and the deer hit him (no damage to the front of the cycle, only the side). DUI, guilty or innocent? The guy or the deer? Or both.

Oh My Gosh, I'm glad you're fine, albeit very shaken. If one of you had to be the casualty, better the deer than you. I hope things go smoothly with fixing/replacing the car. You might want to consider a different kind of car accessory going forward:

This is the car, and push bar on my DH's vehicle. It saved it from internal car damage but not from damage to the grill, headlight, fender, hood, or door. It did make the difference between internal damage and totaling the car, and just getting body work done. That being said, the insurance company will not replace the damaged push bar, only the body work. So if he was to hit another deer, no push bar, no protection.

Are you getting any of the deer meat?
Thanks TL! Any usable deer meat goes to the county pantry for the poor.

Looking at Kelly Blue Book for inspiration. Thanks Andy!

It's been an experience, all right! Had to tell Shrek the venison and Bambi jokes were a bit too soon. At least the deer died outright and did not suffer.

That's a very sensible policy.
