Some days are just like that :-(

Sunday, October 05, 2014

Thursday was "one of those days". It started out just fine - I got some things done around the house and was on my way to the stable when out of nowhere (it seemed) a big 8 point buck crashed into my car. I spent the rest of the day racing around to get the insurance claim moving and going into the city to pick up a rental car. That 'replacement' rider on our insurance sure came in handy. The deer did a lot of damage and I haven't heard, yet, whether the insurance company is going to repair it or write it off.

So, the deer is dead, my car might be, and I have been very stiff and sore. I'm feeling some better today so I think Red and I will have a nice, gentle ride ... maybe work on some technical stuff.

    Thank goodness you weren't hurt badly. A couple years ago a deer ran into us. We didn't get hurt but the SUV was a mess. Last year my daughter in Oklahoma hit a deer on the way home from school (she teaches in a small town about 30 minutes from her home.) She was more worried about the deer than herself. It didn't die right away. Being tenderhearted, she said she was wishing she had a way to put it out if its misery--a big knife or something. Couldn't you just see my 5'2" daughter trying to kill an injured buck with a knife?! Jeesh!! emoticon

    I hope by now you have answers on your car and you are feeling better.

    I am glad that you are OK and not hurt seriously. I am hoping that Red will help get the soreness out. I also hope that the insurance company comes through for you without a lot of hassle. emoticon

    Oh, wow! Glad he ran into you and not the other way around! So glad that you are OK! Maybe riding will loosen you up a bit. Hope that the car is repaired or replaced without any expense to you! emoticon

    OMG that must have been scary, I bet your heart went THUMP THUMP THUMP. The same thing (pretty much) happened to my hubby some years back, they fixed his truck, in case he was going to a mt lake to fish, and a deer jumped off the hillside just as he came around a curve and that was that.
