Aww Takoda getting big!
And sounds like a very nice life OldDog.
My brand new car is gone. First ever new car, less than 3k miles on it, just made the first payment on it. Totaled. Ka-blewie. Someone ran a red light and t-boned me. Had my kid in the car, thank God he wasn't hurt. The person who hit me drove their car away. Turns out full coverage & collision doesn't cover a rental unless you specifically asked for that option at sign up. Had to bum a ride home from friends. Feeling pretty sore, but could've been worse. PSA, don't lean against your door when you drive. Doors hurt, side airbags hurt, and insurance companies are greedy bums. But EMT's are awesome!
Had a pretty good time before that, and met a cool lady who photographed lots of great musicians like Johnny Cash and The Allman Brothers.
