    Thank goodness Lynn .. everything was ok and it was only smoke and not Fire

    Remember all those accidents on the 401 on Thursday, well my DS was in one of them. I was so scared !!!
    It was @ Whites Road & the 401.

    He was stopped on the 401, inside lane. Nothing was moving, and some idiot came down the ramp, texting on his phone, @ 75 km/hr, smashing into my son's new 2016 truck. It now looks like an accordion. He just bought it in the fall, and it's a total right-off.
    The other driver was unconscious, and all his air bags had deployed. There's not much left of his car; it's unrecognizable.

    The good news, my DS is relatively ok. Bumps & bruises, but nothing's broken. His head & neck checked out ok too. He says he feels like he was used as a pin ball, bouncing off the dash and door.
    The other driver was discharged from the hospital this afternoon.

    Considering how serious it could have been, it was a relief. If they'd been in my DIL's Mini, they'd both probably be dead.

    oh no! @22hicks that was the day I was telling you about where I was on the opposite side of the hwy. going back home and there were so many ambulances, fire trucks and police cars as I drove past. The side I was on in fact also had issues up ahead that I saw coming up so I got off at the next exit and took Kingston Rd back.
    I am very sad about your son's vehicle, but we know that his health is the most important factor. Thank goodness no broken bones! Hope he recovers with relatively little pain.

    Brrr...-11 this morning and I sure am staying in! Dh, otoh, has to run up to Chapters for a book I had them put aside for our Grandson..."Fire Within" by Chris D'Lacey, about real dragons, which is perfect because he always gets a kick out of my believing that dragons were once real.......and that it's sad they they're always portrayed as evil. Which they weren't.

    It's an 8-book series that I hope he'll enjoy...this book is for St Patrick's Day..after-all, there is a big green dragon on the front cover!
    @cabmonk , I hope you're feeling better; it's no fun to be confined to one's home, that's for sure!
    @22hicks , your DS was so fortunate to escape that accident in tact, it sure could have been a different story, and yes, absolutely, once a Mom, always a Mom...they never grow up in our eyes, do they? I can't count the number of times our DD says to me...."Mom? You know I'm 40, right? "....um yes...but, but....not in my eyes...

    I hope you're all having a really nice, relaxing Sunday!

    I always designed and my Mom sewed my outfits in high school (one of the reasons, amof, that my DH noticed about me back then..haha)...I'm so grateful for that, so that I can sew what I want for myself now...with all the crap out there for women my age...ugh!!

    Oh Lynn I know you know the pain and yours is even more prolonged. I'm getting there, still a bit of pain but I can at least get up and move around now. Hope everyone has a good sunday.

    @22hicks Thank God your son is OK and will recover from the banging up he received. People who text while driving are insane. A bunch of teenagers were in a terrible accident last year up here because the driver was texting. They didn't do well, I'm afraid.

    Just a quiet work day for me. DH and I are working longer hours for less, it seems, but then everyone else is as well. Remember a time when people could actually retire and look forward to "the golden years"? Whole lotta tarnish on them now. Hope everyone else has a great Sunday! I put some bread in the bread maker and a roast in the oven so dinner is taken care of and I'm free to be as productive as I can be with totally boring work.
