Patrick is fine. Let me start there. But on Friday afternoon, in rain, on the interstate, traffic snarled, and he rear ended someone, and then was sideswiped himself.
This is what's left of my 2002 Lincoln Town car. Obviously, it's completely wiped out. He had to crawl into the back seat to get out the back passenger side door, because the other 3 are inoperable.
Patrick has not a scratch on him. No aches. No pains. But he has vowed to be a more careful driver.
And that is why I am a firm believer in very large cars. It is a happy weekend, the loss of a great car notwithstanding. (Don't worry. I have a gold twin to this one.)
