Personal Stuff

On the way home from church tonight we stopped at Burger King for their special on Whoppers.  I backed into a parked vehicle.  So i pulled ahead and tried backing up again and hit it again.  On at least one of those occasions i dented the other car's front left fender and Dianne's car's right rear fender/bumper.  So i went into the Burger King to find the owner and it was full of people so i reported it to staff who acted like they never had an accident in their parking lot before, and maybe they hadn't.  Finally the couple the other car belonged to left the building and headed for their car.  We exchanged information and i felt incredibly stupid, as is my habit.  The inner situation was made worse by the fact that i had caused another ridiculous accident less than three weeks ago.  Am i getting too old to drive?  This is totally unacceptable.

On a more positive note, Deacon P gave the homily tonight and is was exceptionally wise and kind and advent related.  Jesus would have approved.  This is the second time i have heard P preach, the other time was wonderful also.  I go to church to be with Dianne, but occasionally i get a bonus.


Nosebleed log:  last week i had two nosebleeds on two successive days, both so minor that i failed to record them.  Then yesterday morning blood mysteriously appeared on my right shoulder (The T-shirt stigmata) probably a result of a nosebleed during the night,  Except for the fact that it was impossible for blood to get from my nose to the shoulder (because of the CPAP) there was nothing to be concerned about.  Then this morning (yesterday morning now) i had another minor nosebleed which stopped in a few minutes.with the help of a nose clip. 


Now i must post mydaily_tao offering and go to bed before i do any more damage.

Gah. I hope you feel better when it comes to the nosebleeds!

I'm glad you got home safely.

I have been wondering for a few weeks whether you're feeling shaken up, or something of the sort. So now I'm asking, because I love you.

Nobody can answer the question about driving except you, my friend. But there is no reason to feel stupid. People far younger than you have far worse accidents and though that may be no comfort, it is a reality.

I do wonder sometimes if Deacons (being married and all) are more in tune with the congregation than the priest in charge of the Parish. I think they are.

I understand your doubts about your driving ability very well. Earlier this year, I made a dumb mistake while driving and almost hit two pedestrians. Somehow, I just didn't seem them, even though they were in a marked crosswalk, until I was very close. If they hadn't seen me and moved out of the way, I would have hit them. I was really horrified and began to wonder whether I should be driving as much as I do and with the dog in the back seat too. I knew I was not ready to give up driving, but that I needed to set aside any distractions and preoccupations. Since then, I've been driving well again. Accidents in parking lots happen all the time, and I've had a few myself.

I know from personal experience that incidents involving driving can be unsettling. I find I have to be increasingly careful and mindful else I can be easily distracted or just do not think like I used to think.

At least you were honest enough to admit hitting the other car. The other day we watched a guy hit another car in a parking lot, get out and look at the dent he made, then drive away. We got his info, and gave it to the other driver when he came out of the grocery store....

It does sound like you're having plenty of nosebleeds....
