The frame extension, I think that is what they called it, was total bent in. That is the part that runs around the gas tank. Not, the...

    I hate dump trucks

    Ya, I don't think there was any frame damage. But, if it is over 9,000 to fix, then I would figure they would total it out.

    It is both rear panels. It is a 2001 Mazda Protege DX. I looked up blue book on it, and it was about $9500. So, we are going to go and get an estimate today, and see what it is.

    I hate dump trucks

    OK, let me start this out by saying that my wife is just fine, a little sore, but fine. Well, I thought I was going to be the next one in my house to get a new car. It looks like the wife will beat me to it again. I hate dump trucks. But, for his credit, my wife said that he did try...

    Hank, could you shoot me an e-mail with directions. It's been too long for me. I'll have to get out of there by about 12 also. They didn't change the shifts up here when I thought they would.

    Hank..Winning?? I can't belive it. I'll have to make sure I can go to the next one to see if he can do it again. I'm hoping to be able to have one over here by either the end of October or the begging of November. I'll let y'all know.

    Wish I could be there, but I am still in the process of moving. So, I have to help the wife unpack the boxes around our new place. It would be nice to be able to get into the kitchen without acting like a gymnast. Hopefully once everything over here is settled in, I can have a poker night here...

    thinking about installing a swimming pool ... any advice?

    I hate pools right now. My inlaws have one, and it has been a nice shade of GREEN for about a month now. Lots of money in it. But, they are nice when they are ok. They have fiberglass now. They did have something else first, kind of like plaster. That cracked, and then they got the fiberglass...

    Any pet-peeves with your spouse?

    I know this was how my now wife was. It started to get on my nerves. As for what she does now: 1. I will tell her something...again, and again, and again.. 2. If she asks me a question, and I will tell her the answer, and then she goes to check on the net for it. 3. Not being...

    How over the speed limit would you have to be to not qualify for traffic school?

    Sorry I wasn't clearer in my post. :b What I meant by going to court is normally the court house. Now granted, they normally have traffic court in the same place, at least in the last town I got a ticket in. When you go up there to pay it of or show that you took the defensive driving class...

    How over the speed limit would you have to be to not qualify for traffic school?

    You will always have to go to court. Now, if you have to talk to a judge that is another thing. I know down here that you can either pay off the ticket, or go to defensive driving. If you pay off the ticket you are pleading Non-Contelo (sp?). But, I think you can only take DD if it is under 30...

    I had a main talar neck fracture/dislocation(sp?). Mine was the main bone in the ankle. I was off of my foot for about 3 months.
