    accident this morning

    on the way home, just about 3 miles from home, hit a patch of ice on an off ramp. did a little spin, then up onto the curb. no damage to me, but a couple of bent rims on the car. getting it checked out to make sure nothing else got bent.

    Glad you were not hurt and it seems that the car has a minor damage.

    Glad you're safe, rims can easily be replaced, you cannot.

    Good to hear your OK Dan. Good reason to keep two spares in the trunk.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Good to see you are no worse for wear.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
