Got the car fixed

Tuesday, July 29th, 2003

So last Monday, I dropped my car off at the body shop to have the rear bumper repainted from my accident. Pick up a Ford Focus rental from Enterprise. All goes well.

Thursday rolls around, pick up the car.. Take a look at the back bumper and notice that the bumper looks the same. Look at the invoice — they did the front bumper. Go back inside, get the owner, he’s fuming mad. Seems the guy that did it wrote up his own estimate without looking at what was already in their computer. Front bumper repainted for free! Yay!

Owner tells me to come back on Monday, yesterday, so they and do the rear. They gave me a Ford Taurus to drive around. Picked up the car today, and it was all done! Owner did the work himself, and said he had to fix a crease in the bumper from the fender bender, oredered car parts on eBay for this occasion. Looks great.

Gotta wait 30 days until a wax it.. which will be right around my birthday. Great present to myself — shining up my freshly painted bumpers!

Dog Sitting

Tuesday, July 29th, 2003

Mom & I are dog sitting for my Uncle this week. Miniature Schnauzer named Heidi. She’s kinda pepper colored, most of her body is grey, white belly, black and white and grey face. Cute little dog.

She’s about 4 years old, and during her life she’s only been away from my Uncle for a total of 2 nights when he took my Aunt to a clinic for some tests. We’ve had her for a week now, and she seems to be slowly adapting to us. Earlier this month “her” kitty cat had to be put down, so she was probably already lonely from that, and now her “daddy” has disappeared. She’s all confused.

Friendly, loveable dog. She likes for us to pat her, and she’ll sit right next to us when we watch TV or whatever, always wanting to be touching someone. She doesn’t take too kindly to strangers or other dogs though. I guess she doesn’t see many other people out with my Uncle, as they kinda live out in the country.

I’ll try to upload some pictures of her tomorrow.

Linux is just passing through…

According to Bill Gates, Linux is just passing through. Not really threatening to competition. It’ll be gone shortly folks, don’t worry… Linux is dieing!

Whatever you say, Billy Boy.
