    Well, what a Saturday I had. I was driving down Capital Blvd in Raleigh (really busy road for you non-Raleighites) and as I'm going straight through an intersection, the guy in the left-turn lane decides he wants to go straight. He pulls right in front of me! I managed to almost miss him with the truck(his rearview mirror scratched down the side and flattened my chrome and scratched the paint) but then the tow dolly smashed into him at 45 mph. I didn't even have time to hit the brakes. The tow dolly is destroyed, tongue is bent, fender is destroyed, rim is all bent to hell, axle is bent, etc. He's paying for it all out of his pocket, so I'm hoping he has the money or I'm going to have to sue, which I don't want to do. What an exciting Saturday.

    Yeah, glad the truck wasn't hurt badly, but the dolly was part of my business and I can't get any cars till I get it replaced! Here's a link to the dolly's damage:

    Wow, that sucks. On the bright side, you'll be getting a new dolly soon.

    Yes Capital Rd. is a female dog. My sister lives up there and also attended Peace College, so I had to go see her a bunch (ALL GIRLS SCHOOL!!! ) Glad to hear almost everything is in good order.

    Yep, I know what you mean. My sister went to Meredith College in Raleigh, another all girls school. I went up there a lot, too! (Before I met my wife, that is....)
