When I totaled my car in August, the insurance company low-balled me with an amount for the car. I did some online research for the same car/year/model and sent links to the insurance company showing higher prices. They came back with $2,500 more to give me the price I had justified.

Apparently it is a policy my Grandfather set up, he hunted and donated all the meat to the Pantry. It also feeds the kids at the church home.

KBB shows current market value from $6900 to $8900. Locals dealers are getting over $9000 for their 2009's.

KBB isn't relevant. The key is how much would you have to spend if you went out to buy that car today. Used car prices online are your evidence of how much is fair.

I just took a look at my left leg. The ulcer has shrunk more than half. If I can get that leg healed in the next two weeks, it will reduce my pain level so much. With the three on my right leg, I wouldn't wish just one of these on an ex husband if I had one. Saline Solution. Just fancy words for salt on an open wound. And I have three of them. Oh so much joy. But I still have both legs. I keep my mind on the good news.

Sorry about your car, but I'm very glad to hear you weren't hurt. We see a lot of deer where I live, and I've had a few close calls myself, but have been fortunate so far. Unbelievable the damage they can do.

Oh no, Princess! I'm sorry to hear that but glad you weren't hurt. My in-laws live in deer country and one ran into their SUV once. Take care.

Still have not heard from the Body and Paint guys. Was hoping they would call today while I was home and awake.
