My son has a temperature and he is talking about his stomach hurting...all over, so goodness only knows what is wrong. Looks like I won't be going to work.

Hearing about the at least 25 people killed in massacres in Alabama (10) and Germany (15) yesterday. Sigh, it made me tear up.

He went to school today because he said he was feeling much better. I got a phone call at just after 10.30 to say I needed to pick him up.

So I spent four hours-ish travelling to and from work, and only an hour and a half or so there.

Postby nona » Sat March 14th, 2009, 1:03 pm

let me first say that if I haven't told anyone hear I love third generation camaros (86-92), recently I drove 2000 miles to buy a rare low mileage camaro that was 1 owner and in perfect condition. Now lets start at the begining...

yesterday, yes friday the 13th my husband calls at lunch time to say 'hey hunny, they fired 7 guys and laid off 18. I made the cut this time but with out work I might be next'. Then he told me they will be laying off evey three months till it starts to get better.

As my daughters and I are coming home fom picking my eldest up at school I see a Cox Communications 1 ton van driving by my camaro, I stop to let him by but oh no he puts the van in reverse, doesn't even look! and floors it! I'm honking my horn screaming as loud as possible, at this time I knew what was happening so I'm out of my car in the middle of the drive waveing my arms and all of the sudden we hear CRUNCH, SCREECH and WHOMP!!! :eek: he hit my car so fast he pushed he back three feet, buried my tailpipes in five inches of dirt and lets just say she needs a facelift and the frame is tweaked. I feel bad now but I tore him a good one I yelled screamed and cried all at once.

so theres 2 friday the 13th down and two to go for the year, gopefully better then this

OMG Nona, that was certainly Friday 13th for you. Thank goodness you weren't hurt - but to see that happen to your special car. I remember your post saying you were driving to get it. :(
I hope the job situation stabilises soon. Worrying times :(

Oh, nona! There should be a law against damaging a classic car. How terrible!
