    Hey, N--how are you? I've been wondering what has been happening with you.

    I ended up going to the doctor today because I was seeing signs of skin infection over the hematoma, just like with the...

    My Focus has disks on all four wheels. It has absolutely incredible brakes, and I forget when I drive other cars that they don't all stop on a dime.

    Husband replaced the tail light today, so it's...

    2DogsFarm, this pony is not the Hackney. The Hackney died in 2010. He was nuts and I don't think he could have recovered from something like this. But I sure loved that little guy.

    Car has a manual transmission because I love driving a manual. So I'm guessing it wasn't properly parked. No real way to know now as that kind of got lost in...

    2DogsFarm, the cart isn't too bad. One shaft support (runs from the shaft to the basket) is bent, and one wheel is totally trashed. The really bizarre thing is that I told my husband a week ago...

    Funny, I ended up comforting husband most of yesterday. He had a very hard time with the whole thing. It's usually easier to be the injured person rather than the person who loves him/her. I just...
