Thi is the rear window of my 2020 Ford Edge. Parked in my driveway with a perfectly intact window one minute. Hit be flying stones from the lawn mower/weeh whacker and shatered a minute later. Gotta love those lawn care guys!

There is also a small dent in the front bumper.

We really think it was an accident that the equipment operators were not even aware of, but we did notify the company and the owner came right out to apologize. I think he was really nervous at first. Don is a big guy! We told him we understood that accidents happen and we were not trying to make a stink. We just wanted the workers to be more aware of hazards and try to be more careful going forward.

Insurance considers these things an act of God and doesn't quibble about fixing broken glass.


  1. I would have thought the company would fix it but since the insurance co will, I guess it is just an irritating inconvenience.

  2. Oh my goodness. Thank heavens for insurance.

  3. my first thought was the same as patti's above, I would have assumed this would go on the company's insurance which they must have to be in business. I hope you don't have to pay a deductible. And how loud was the machinery that they didn't hear this? (see for that matter too)

  4. I am glad that everyone approached in a calm manner

  5. Oh my gosh! I had no idea that could happen. I should tell Art since he uses a weed whacker pretty close to our van.

  6. My lawn care guy sent a rock through my door window. He paid to have it repaired.

 Don and I drove to South Carolina to attend the wedding of my step-grandson, Will. Will Will and Katie The wedding took place on Dataw Island, a beautiful outdoor ceremony followed by a reception in the country club. We stayed in a tiny cottage in the historic center of Beaufort, rented from Vrbo. Since the wedding was at 5 p.m., we had time to explore the area a bit. I really like the low country scenery and historical charm. Sitting quietly in the curtained gazebo I was visited by multiple cardinals. They came to visit the feeder, not me, but I can always pretend! How I will always remember Will!

Alternative Intelligence

  Here's what can happen when one blindly follows technology's artificial intelligence (or what Kellyanne Conway might term "alternative intelligence). Smugglers' Notch Road in Stowe, VT, is a popular tourist stop during our lovely Vermont summers.  Part of route 108, it winds up, over, and down a steep mountain. There are sharp turns and narrows. There are also road signs warning truckers not to take the route no matter what one's GPS might be directing drivers to do.  GPS simply considers the road a short cut. Apparently, truck drivers love themselves a short cut. Seven trucks got stuck on the road in 2020. Assistance in getting these trucks unstuck is arduous and costly. Signs are posted that warn truckers not to attempt the route and inform drivers of substantial fines. The first truck of this year got stuck yesterday -- last night at 11:30 PM actually.  The driver: Yes, I saw the signs but I was following my GPS. The Florida man was fined $3,500 and will be re


 The phone rings. I don't recognize the number and assume it is just another robocall. But later I see that there is message so I listen."This is Diane's daughter. Can you give me a call back." This is immediate cause for worry. Oh, no. Diane must be sick. maybe even in the hospital? I call back with trepidation. But . . . Never would I have thought it could be that my friend had died unexpectedly. My friend who was so full of life, so active, so very vital, strong, and health conscious. My heart aches in the realization that she is not in this world now. Perhaps it is that she is in a better world and with the love of her life, but I still will miss her terribly. Diane
