Where have I been

I would like to say that everything is fine and I have just been busy. But unfortunately, everything is not fine. Wednesday afternoon about 20 minutes after Grim left for work on the Harley, he was hit. The bike went one way and he the other. Luckily, he is just banged up, road rashed, & bruised. His leather jacket took a lot of the damage as did his gloves. All the woman who hit him could say was I didn't see you! Seriously, Grim is 6'5" and almost 300 pounds, riding a Harley that is a far cry from quite. And she didn't see him!!! Right now he is on the mend and I thank the Goddess for that. We are not going to stop riding because of this. The only thing that keeps going through my head about this is that had she killed him would she be so nonchalant about telling his children that sorry that he is gone I didn't see him...... I am just so enfuriated by this. How hard is it to pull over to talk on the phone. Or just not answer it. Really, how many life and death calls do you get in a day? Plus, motorcycles are everywhere. They are not a brand new invention, they have been out since 1903, over a hundred years! This is why I waited to write about this. I knew once I started typing it would all come pouring out. Grim and I have been together for over 20 years. We have had our ups and downs. And we almost split up a time or two. But I don't know what I would do without him. When he had his heart attack a couple years ago, that scared me but I didn't see the damage. With this he is pretty battered and everytime I look at him I think because of someone else's stupidity I could have lost him. The past few days have been hell. I have been dealing with the insurance, the impound, and the dealership that will do the work. Then come to find out our family doctor won't deal with accident victims. Time to find a new doctor. But luckily, one of the other doctors in the office agreed to see Grim. What a cluster...... I will keep writing about the status of this as I don't know what will happen next.

On a lighter note I got the onion sets in the ground during the day on Wednesday. We also picked up what we are affectionately calling Audrey (hops plant). It is in a pot in my living room and already grown 2 inches. I wanted to give it a chance at an early start so that's why it's in the house!

Happy Easter!

Gotta Run,
