The man who hit my car was blind, deaf and a liar

Thank goodness there was a witness to my accident at the end of August. The man who backed into me told his insurance company that I had come from another lane and hit him.

The bad guy driver actually backed into me. I honked. The witness behind me honked. The guy got out of his car with his cellphone still attached to his ear and said .."i DID NOT SEE YOU." I guess he did not hear either of us honking at him. That adds up to blind and deaf in my book.

In the end, his insurance company is covering all of it.

I keep hearing these little noises

The last couple of nights before I went to bed, I hear an upbeat percussion music, It lasted a few minutes, then stopped. I could not tell where it was coming from, but I have always had quiet neighbors.
Then I noticed it after I laid down for a nap in the middle of the day.
Suddenly, I started noticing it happened whenever I went to sleep.

What was different? Why ws I hearing voices?

Eventually I figured out that it was the "hibernate" warning from my new computer.

The music is nice, and now that I know it is not all in my head, I sleep a lot better

solitary confinement is better than this

My computer is sick. I bought a new one. They are both being rehabed and retrained and reformatted by Mark Wilson. I am hanging out in the business office, trying to keep up with the thousands of emails I get every day.

Having no computer while you are on drugs (for my accident of course) means I am not sure who I am and what my phone number is. I certainly can't call anyone else unless their phone number is saved in my cell phone. Oops, I better so plug it in. It is my last link to the outside world.

I am doing amazingly stupid stuff. I left my purse in the car today. Then searched all over my loft to find it. Accidently took my phone off the hook, so no one could call me.

I went over to Judith ABbott's house for a casual dinner. She had just bought a new pickle cookbook and pickled everything. The best was the curried pickled zucchini with red grapes. (really, it was wonderful) Also tried bread and butter pickles, dill pickles, sweet and sour pickles, coleslaw and had sandwhiches (no pickles included) She made chocolate cupcakes for dessert and slipped me a few on the way out. Ever since I started people seem compelled to feed me pickles.

Friday night I went over to Diane Teitlebaums while husband Bill was ice-fishing in Alaska. We had Eddy's New York Pizza (actually came from Albertson's but tasted authentic) Plus yummy chocolate cake and mocha swirl ice cream. I brought some Sabra hummus that someone had sent me to sample for appetizers.

Tonight I ate over at my neighbors, Jan and John Belcher. John grilled hamburgers and we had real Texas food, beans and coleslaw. The beverage was a wonderful pinot noir I was sent and it was a perfect pairing on a hot night.

Tomorrow I back to the usual routine of visiting doctors all day.
