BRING ON 2008

Can a phone call at 5:30 in the morning be a good thing? Not too often. And not in this case. I was roused from slumber to learn that a deer had chosen to commit suicide on the front of Michael's truck. Off I went to meet him at the Elma Rest Area, where we finished making all the necessary calls...police, insurance, tow. Got wonderful service from our ins. co., tho we had to wait over an hour for the tow....which was coming from 45 miles away (when there were tow companies in Elma not 5 miles away).

We are now wondering if his '98 Toyota...with 230,000 miles on it...might be considered "totalled". Hope not. This has been a really great truck. We ARE looking into getting something that gets even better mileage, so let's hope this works out for the best.

If bad things come in threes....I hope this is the end of it. Our shop broken into and chainsaws stolen in November.....then the storm and resulting damages....and now his truck. Enough already.

I gather Michael was ok.
Sounds like you've had your 3 and can now sit back and enjoy Christmas.

That is my wish for you.

Thanks Elizabeth! And yes, Michael was fine.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Oh you poor things! That sort of thing happens around here quite a lot although it is usually wildboar that wonder out into the road.
I hope everything now quietens down for you for the holiday season.
Have a great Christmas!

What is it about all your vehicles that the deer like? First your new car and now the truck. That's too bad. Sorry! Poor deer.
Hey, Tyler is selling his truck!But as for gas mileage, forget it.
Glad Michael didn't get hurt.
Later...lab

Whoa1 you have had a bad run of late, sorry to hear that. Pretty scary with the deer. My MIL hit a horse once, I guess is was kind of the same, she was lucky she wasn't injured as was Michael.
