Hail ruins car

The hail has dimpled the car with hundreds of little dents. i entertained painting it white and decaling TITELIST across the hood, or maybe some other golf ball manufacturer could sponsor my "art-car" idea.

We should contact our insurance and see what the deal is--maybe they cover this kind of thing. It'd certainly total the car even though it runs perfect with low mileage.

We spent the day in Springfield yesterday. We had a great day visiting and Tristan played with his friends. When it came time to leave we had a bit of trouble. Tristan said "i don't like you because you are trying to take me away from my friends" then when i finally scooped him up his little buddies were yelling "we'll save you" and yanking on my sweater. Oh, the joys of being a kid. He promptly passed out in the car on the ride home.

Isn't it amazing how honest kids are about what they are feeling? Would everyone be that way, there would be less misunderstandings, facades and hidden bitterness. It doesn't necessarily mean that situations would change but there would be no hidden meanings to look for or miss on accident. Gotta love the forthrightness! If only I could lose my inhibiters to be that honest again.

I can recall outbursts like that, even when the kids were in high school.

Too bad about the car. I don't suppose you could just keep it and drive it as is?

I had a car once that was considered totalled by hail damage and I got a nice little check from the insurance company because of it. I never fixed the car, and in the heat of summer many of the dents popped out (though it was never perfect again). I never minded the dents much, but loved the extra cash. : )
