    Here is an update on the cruise to nowhere. DCL had offered all cruiser's on that nightmare of a cruise a 25% discount on a future 3 night cruise. The offer was meaningless to me and my family who have sworn off DCL. After several emails and phone calls, DCL has agreed to extend the discount to a 3 night stay at WDW. And the latest word is that DCL has initiated a full blown inquiry about the two fateful cruises that were sailed into the wake of Sandy.

    Just wanted to give a report on the "movie on the beach". A blow up screen is inflated and a couple of speakers set up and then a DVD projector set up behind the screen. They have a different movie every night of the week. Rebecca and I laid in lounge chairs and watched Monsters Inc. Can anyone say kkiiittteeeee? I love that movie. Poor Mikee. :). Anyway, it was pretty neat. FYI, in the event of inclement weather, the movie is moved into the "train room" of the villas.

    Congratulations on the new addition!:yay::yay:

    I know that they have a lot to make up with a lot of people. I hope DCL handles this well and convinces people that they will not do this ever again.
    I thought of a couple of different scenarios that they could have done. But then again, I don't rule the world.;)
    Keep us apprised!

    Yay!! :yay::yay:

    Welcome aboard!:goodvibes

    Another beloved pet. We love our pets. I love Goldens.:hug:

    I made it big because this is really really important!

    Mr Muush is Mr Sea-Sickness. The man can't even read in the car. He uses the patch and he is a cruising maniac!
    Cruising rocks!! And not so much with a patch!;)

    DDad! Keep up the good work! See you soon.:santa:

    At first I thought you meant the movie On the Beach (Gregory Peck :rotfl2:).

    I love Monsters Inc. Thank you for the heads up!

    It has been one of those days you would never dream of happening when you walk out your front door.

    I was driving down one of our sevice roads in Greenville to meet my boss and I saw this car coming right at me in my lane. this is not a one way road!!
    It only took me a second to realize she was not going to move back into her lane and I started heading off to the grass (no shoulder to the road) She hit me starting at the front of my door right behind the front tire and went all the way to the back tire which got ripped off the axle and was parallel with the back bumper needless to say. I am fine, just sore in a few spots, but my sweet red Monte Carlo is totalled. Lucky for me there was a car full of witnesses behind me and her. The officer told me she did have insurance, but she did not know what happened. All the witness told the same story I did, so hopefully I will not have any trouble with her insurance. Another thing that upset me was that she never offered to come down to me and even see how I was, so I didn't go near her either. But God was totally with me as always and I totally praise Him. Just a few minutes before the accident I had my window down, but I rolled it up. If I had not, the mirror would have showered all over me when she hit it, cause it was totally gone from the casing.

    Just needed some groupie hugs. I loved that car and I had not even hit 100,000!!!!

    :grouphug: Kathy! So glad you're OK! Take it easy - your muscles will be sore for a bit.


    I had a friend in high school who was killed in the same type of situation. I haven't thought of the accident in a long time, but just this afternoon I told her story to my dd who's taking driver's lessons: The oncoming driver was in her lane and there was no place to go except into a rock ledge on the right - it took the whole driver's side of her car off. The other driver was on drugs, he survived with barely a scratch. Her father (our music teacher) was in the passenger seat and was in a neck brace for over a year, her little brother in the back seat only got a couple cuts from glass.

    That was a very close call for you indeed if he took your rear axel off. A life is worth a billion+ cars. So happy you're here posting. :wizard:

    Oh Kathy !!! Sending big hugs to you !!! Thank God you are ok. Wonder if the other driver had a seizure or something ? Sorry about your car---but it's more important that you are alive and ok.

    God is good not just once in a while! God is good all of the time! Praise God that no one - not you, not her, not those close by - were hurt beyond the strains of the muscles. I am so sorry about the car - I know how attached we can get to those things (I still have a car I bought 32 years ago). But alas, it was destined for the junk heap from the moment it was created. But not so much you. God takes care of the smallest details - even rolling up a window to protect you from shattering mirrors. It is a very good thing that you are an astute driver or this story could have had a very different ending. So glad you are OK. Those are very frightening times. I hope today is magical for you. :grouphug:

    Kathy, I am so sorry this happened to you, but so glad you are here to tell us about it. I hope your soreness goes away soon. Almighty God, praise goes to Him for having His loving hands upon you at the moment of impact.

    Oh sweet Lord, :grouphug: a million hugs your way. I am so happy you are ok Kathy. take it easy for a few days as soreness can some times pop up after a few days.

    This must have been absolutely horrifying for you.

    You know Kathy, last night I was watching one of those "best of" tv specials about movies and I think the topic was most inspirational, well lo and behold one of my favorite movies "it's a wonderful life" was in the top 10.
    I know how it is to love our cars but if you had gotten hurt there would have been a big "hole" in the universe. A cog would have been missing from our groupie wheel so I'm thanking God for giving you that little red Monte Carlo and for it protecting you so well.

    Be well friend.

    Oh Kathy! Hugs, hugs, & more hugs coming your way! :grouphug::grouphug::grouphug::grouphug::grouphug: I'm so sorry this happened to you but thank goodness you were not seriously hurt. It does stink about your car but cars can be replaced. You can't! :grouphug: I hope you feel better soon & have a quick settlement with her insurance company.

    Hi Kathy

    Just checking in today, wondering how you are doing? I know sometimes it hurts the next day, hoping that this is not the case.

    Take care Kathy, let us hear how you are today.

    I thank each and every one of you for the prayers, hugs, concerns and thoughts sent my way. I got up early this morning and did not hurt near as bad as I thought I would, but DH wanted me to go get checked out and so I did. My doctor said that everything that was hurting was in line with the jerk of the crash. He did not want to do any x-rays and submit me to more radiation (I guess since it has barely been a year since my radiation treatments), plus he said since we did not feel like any bones were broken, the x-rays would not tell him very much. He documented every ache and pain and said that if anything extra started to hurt to come back in and in 2-3 weeks he might consider me all well, that we would see!!! I am also going to see my chiropractor for the next two weeks and let her do her magic.

    DH took the day off to go with me to get the car cleaned out and to see for himself the actual damage. He said he had expected worse, but he still feels like it is a total loss. We decided to let our insurance company take care of the fight for us and they think they will have part of the information for me by Wednesday.

    As soon as we have an idea of the settlement, we should be able to look for another car. We have always been GM lovers and have had Buicks or Chevrolets since we have been married and even before. DH is seriously thinking about looking at Nissans or Toyotas for the gas mileage.
    Any feedback from the groupies?????

    I have my Mom's car which has been my backup 'luxury' car, but the Monte Carlo was my work car as I called it. Mom and I bought our cars on the same day at the same carlot and as of last week I had it in my possession a full 5 years.

    Again thanks for the luv and I will let you know how the car saga continues.

    I'm sure you will be sore for days and more likely weeks, but hoping not too long. Hope the chiropractor helps.
    Can't help you in relation to the car---never owned a Toyota or Nissan. Hope the settlement is finalized soon so you can get to car shopping. But in the meantime....hope you can get some R&R :goodvibes

    I am spending the day tomorrow in a small town a little north of us with my DH and sweet DD. There is a little airport that my DH likes to fly into that is having a day of Aircraft on Display and it will include a tribute to veterans.
    We are driving up and going to spend a good amount of the day looking at the planes and my DH will be on cloud 9!!! :cloud9:

    The car lot we bought the cars in is also in that town, so we will do a quick look to see if there is anything interesting.

    But the plan is to chill out quite a bit this weekend and so unfortunately, the housecleaning will have to wait. :thumbsup2

    Kathy...so glad that you are doing better. Prayers for you for a quick recovery from your aches and soreness. Let the housework go...and chilling out sounds like a very good idea for you right now. What a horrible experience! But so, so happy that it wasn't any worse for you than it was.
