To those in the path of Matthew, my thoughts are with you. Take care.

Just kill me now.
I'm joining with the others in saying how sorry I am for the loss of your dog. I know how much a pet means to us and when they leave, nothing takes their place. And it does sound like you are really getting dumped on with ugly stuff.

I am also sending a virtual (((((hug))))) and hoping things get better for you.

Take care.

Lenora,
It is really unfortunate that you're getting dumped on. You don't deserve it. I don't have any advice other than to take a deep breath and open a bottle of really good wine.

Thanks everyone. My son & family relocated a little bit further southwest. He, his wife, baby and cat are staying with a family that has one or two generators and food.

The hotline was slow although one caller plucked my last nerve. I need to recover the files from my desktop until I have it fixed or buy something else. I should have most of my files on a USB stick.

My dog...He was "The One". Picked him up right after my spouse and I separated and he was with me when my mother died. I'm still somewhat surprised I find myself bursting into tears. (I'm super stoic so I'm unnerved by these outbursts.)

As you may recall, I brought my son's dog to my home about 3 months ago. She has been a handful and I have the scar to prove it. I'll be picking up an anti-anxiety drug for her tomorrow. (Wonder if I can pop a few myself?)

No wine yet. But I've reacquainted myself with rum.

It takes a long time to not burst into tears. As a former dog owner, I cried for a long, long time. So at least you're not the only one. Pets are family and it hurts when they're gone.

My dog died 10 years ago and is buried in the back yard. I am in the yard daily and frequently stop and talk to him. Tears always follow. I am misty just writing this note. I got another dog about 7 years ago who is extremely affectionate and smart.

28 degrees and heavy frost on everything this morning, a very nice 4 mile walk with my dogs. Brilliant sunshine and 52f now. Another freeze warning tonight.


Although I've only had Gus and BudBud for a couple of years, when they were dumped on me after my gf left, I couldn't imagine life without them. I hope, really really hope they outlive me, I can't imagine what I would go through if I lost one of them. They are family, and they are all I have.

Change of topic. Sorry. I stupidly backed into a neighbors visitors car & while my car only got scratches, theirs had $1700 damage. I was pretty shook up but awfully glad I opted for full coverage after the accident where the woman ran a red light.

This was in the parking lot & technically he was in a no parking zone & yes, I could have been a creep, but this is part of living in a small town, not being a creep.

I was still shook up though and so thankful how the two insurance agencies worked with each other.

Is it wrong that I sometimes find this a rather humorous forum (retirement and all of its threads). Maybe I'm just tired.

Not sure what you mean by "full" coverage, but any state-mandated minimum coverage that you had would cover the $1,700 damage to the other car. If by full, you mean that you added collision coverage, that will pay to repair the scratches to your own car (unless you have a deductible).
