An Early Christmas Present....Not

I got a phone call from my sister early this morning asking if I could pick her up at the optometrists today as she was getting drops in her eyes and of course would not be able to drive. Naturally I said yes.

J had not had lunch yet so we decided to go to a café here in town for lunch. We had a wonderful lunch talked our way throughout and then after paying went to get into my car to head back and pick up hers.

What to my wondering eye did appear???? Well a great big dent, the inability to get into my vehicle through the drivers door (I had to go in the passenger side and climb over the consul, quite an acrobatic feat for an almost 61 year old), no note, no anything to say what had happened.

Here are some pictures of the damage.

Accidents happen and I wouldn't be as angry as I am now if the person involved would have left a note or came back into the café and let me know what had happened. Both my sister and I figure whomever it was had been in the bar portion of the café and had been imbibing in an adult beverage or two and since the city imposed a zero tolerance just did not want to perhaps have their driver's licence revoked or removed for any length of time.

Now we have an appointment to take it to the insurance adjuster on Friday and then the fun of no vehicle while it is in the body shop being repaired. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

On a happier note I finished all the ornaments.

They are now hanging on the tree.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.



  1. sorry about your car...the nerve of some people...

  2. I was sorry to hear about your car Jackie. So annoying. I hope all goes well with the insurance and repairs.

  3. The same thing happened to my husband yesterday at a supermarket. Fortunately he is able to drive it as it was a hard knock on the side and back bumper, which has cracked it. It will have to be replaced in the new year and he estimates it will be quite expensive. Hope you get sorted out soon.

  4. That is so unfair, hope the CCTV catches that person and you get some redress.

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Jackie with H and the boys, hope its all you want it to be.

    Your cross stitch decs are lovely BTW

    All the Best

  5. Your Christmas ornaments turned out beautifully. I especially love the stocking with the pointsettia.

    Jackie, you have certainly had more than your share of unexpected expenses with the basement and now the car. Hope 2017 is much calmer.
