Tis the season to be sneezing. The Bradford Ornamental Pear trees (Pyrus calleryana) are blooming all over town and my sinuses are in a howling uproar. Of course, if you followed the link and read the article, you’ll know I’ll have my revenge on the owners of the dang things sooner or later. . . .
And not to put too fine a point on my day, . . . .Coming out of the parking lot at the doctor’s office this morning, a pickup (what else?) backed into me. His bumper got all four side panels a good lick and did a number on my front passenger door handle. It’s the pickup’s fault; I’ve got his info, but it’s all a big hassle I’ve got to deal with. They’ll probably have to replace both the front and rear fender panels and both door panels and the door handle. His insurance is supposed to furnish me a loaner while they’re fixing it, but that’s a hassle, and taking it in and however long it’s going to take to fix it is a hassle. I’ve got too many things going on in my life right now and the last thing I need is one more hassle to have to deal with. AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!
