Look What I Did This Morning!

My Poor Car...


Bambi really did a number on it didn't she? About $2500 damage to be exact! Off to get a rental tomorrow morning and I should have the car back by the 27th. And no, I do not have rental car coverage on my insurance - dang it.

I'm fine - banged up a bit. By tomorrow morning I'm sure to be stiff. It's amazing though - I had the cruise control on, my legs bent, right hand under my thigh, driving with the left hand low on the wheel - by the time I came to a stop my hands were at 10 and 2, left leg braced and right foot solidly on brake. Picture a cat hanging from the ceiling.

I had planned to show progress pics today - nah, this is way more exciting!

((Edited to add - Bambi did not survive - but she did take my mirror and windshield wiper with her))

Do as I say not as I do this weekend - Go out there and make memories!

Poor car and Bambi! I am glad you are alright, but how about the deer? Oh well, have a great weekend and enjoy the rental while you have it. Sometimes it can be fun to drive a rental just to try out a different car.

Cars can be fixed... I'm just glad you weren't seriously hurt. Although, I know what an inconvenience this can be!

As always.

Glad that you are ok, a car can be fixed or replaced. Do I dare ask how the deer is? Hope you are not too sore tomorrow.

The important thing is you are ok.
You know what they say "drive it like it's a rental". So go out there and have fun.

Goodness, don't you hate when that happens! Perhaps all deer should be required to carry collision insurance! Glad you are okay!

So sorry about your car (and Bambi) but at least you are ok and the car can be fixed so life will go on haha. Those darn deer should pay the bill!!

That's no way to start your day or your weekend! Glad you're "just" sore, but I know how achey you're going to be. Sorry - take care of yourself.

Hope your weekend is better....

So glad to hear you were not hurt badly. You will be sore tomorrow, and perhaps more will come to surface than that. Rest easy! Hugs.

Oh Yikes, I hope I never have to go thru that. Take care and feel better.

Yikes! But living where we live, these things happen...If only deer would look both ways before they cross the street!

Oh Denise! You are SO lucky you're okay! At least the car can be fixed. You can't.
