Things could be worse...

Yup here it is the Mini-Musemobile in a sad state.

I'll not say much about how this happened because there may be a pending lawsuit - Just kidding. I always wanted to be evasive and say something prepared by a learned lawyer.

Well the Mini-Musemobile got crunched from the driver's door to the aft panel.

The bulk of the damage is on the driver's door but amazingly the window is not broken and still works. If you notice there is a horizontal crease a couple of inches above the trim. That crease is a steel bar Honda puts in the door to protect the driver/passengers. With all this damage the side impact bags did not deploy because they were not needed. Neither Scrabble Queen nor the Contender were in the car or driving The "Kid" went to see Pete and the accident happened on the drive back. I don't relish the expense or the expected higher insurance rates but the bright side is there was no one hurt and the Honda proved why their cars are so highly rated.

After any traumatic incident like this we tend to lose our marbles and rant and rave. Well I found my marbles and they are all just fine.

Scrabble Score ~ Scrabble Queen 317 - The Contender 312

Quote of the Day ~
"Whenever books are burned, men also in the end are burned." ~ Christian Johann Heinrich Heine (December 13, 1797 – February 17, 1856) was a journalist, an essayist, and one of the most significant German romantic poets. He is remembered chiefly for selections of his lyric poetry, many of which were set to music in the form of lieder (art songs) by German composers.
