Strangest thing the other morning: as I as headed out for a walk, I noticed this very cute Honda Insight parked near the Bywater Bistro. On my return from the walk, the first thing I saw was a state trouper’s car in the middle of the road with its lights flashing. Then, I caught sight of that very same Honda all smashed up, turned out at an angle, and accordioned into a telephone pole. Just up ahead was a Mustang with a busted up fender and other parts, and fluids leaking everywhere.

A bunch of people were gathered around, wondering aloud how one hits a parked car like that, a small one, no less. The owner looked shell-shocked. He explained that it was from the original line of Insights, and that there were only 500 made in that color. He’d put 200,000 miles on it, and got 60 miles to the gallon. So, he was pretty bummed. Not to mention that, you know, now he was stranded.

Incidentally, the staff of the rt. 32 bridge rehab project was out there gawking, too. I asked them, “So, when’s the bridge going to be done?” Answer: by the end of October. I thought it would be sooner, considering how close they seem to completion. I’m re-calibrating my Internal Patience Generator.

speaking of the bridge…did you notice that for all of the work they have done and all of the red lights we have endured, it doesn’t appear that they are planning to paint the damned thing!

Actually, they told me the other day they’re going to paint it.
