Penfold thinks Will has definitely been working too hard.

Yup, Bonnie agrees that Will has been working too hard. ;) She hopes all goes smoothly for No. 1 son's wedding and is looking forward to some photos.

Bonnie wonders if Author is feeling better yet?

Bonnie wonders if the solar eclipse has skewed events in the last week or so. She has had to work the front desk at work alone since last Thursday because her coworker has the flu. :( And then Monday afternoon another coworker was in a car accident. :o Fortunately her coworker only suffered a sprained wrist and a black eye. Unfortunately, her car was totalled. :shock: Then this morning, Bonnie was almost sideswiped as she was merging onto the highway on her way to work. :auto-swerve: At any rate, Bonnie is very glad that she only has one more work day this week.

Bonnie sends hugs to (((everyboardie))) and scampers off.

Will sympathises with Bonnie. There are quite a few drivers like that where he lives. Most of them have Belgian plates. :evil:

Will has not had any traffic-related excitement recently, but he was excruciated on by a stork on the way to work this morning. :shock:

Let Will explain: Will's job has taken him to Strasbourg this week. Will was walking past the park to the office when he noticed that the roadside trees were surrounded by a lot of bird dro- SQUELCH. White blotches on Will's jacket and trousers. :roll:

Storks (the Regional Bird of Alsace) have been kept in the Orangerie Park in Strasbourg for many years. Successful breeding means that they now nest in the trees lining the neighbouring road as well. Will hadn't noticed that before. Weell, he has noo.

Will thinks it may be good luck. :D

Toothy is also pleased that Bonnie and car survived unscathed but is sorry to hear co-worker was less lucky. Friend of Toothy waved bye bye to her car as a local garage took it for its MOT (obligatory check over). As the mechanic drove her car back to her afterwards, someone ran I to the back of it (at some speed, by the look of it). She's worried that it might not be reparable and that the insurance company will value it too low to fund a decent replacement. She'd like the car to be repaired as it's her baby. Fingers crossed! :roll:

Penfold used to work for an insurance claims office many years ago. He thinks the same system should still be in place in that if a car is classed as an 'economic' write-off* Toothy should still be able to buy the car back for its scrap value (negotiable with the insurers). She can then get it repaired but will have to pay the extra itself and must get a test from an engineer to prove its road-worthiness before driving it away. It could be worth checking out if the repair estimate is close, or just over, the car's value. Hope this helps a little and good luck. :)

Toothy thanks Penfold for the info which she'll pass on to her friend as it was friend's car not (thankfully) Toothy's. That's the trouble with 3rd person. It can get darned confuzzlin' as to who is meant by 'he/she'. ;)

Also because Penfold had posted when he had only been awake for ten minutes or so (after five or six hours sleep) and was just setting about his first 'wake-up' cuppa of the day. :lol:

Bonnie pops in to say "Hi" to (((everyboardie)))! Last evening she and FriendR threw a birthday party for themselves as their birthdays are only 5 days apart. Bonnie had a nice surprise to find that one of her best friends was in town and able to attend the festivities. Woot! :D Everyone polished off the food and drinks and Bonnie even made off with a couple of early birthday gifts. ;) She is keeping her fingers crossed that tomorrow morning will bring sunshine and an early trip to the bakery for a chocolate croissant and coffee to start off her "official" birthday. And since she only works two days this week, she thought she'd just go ahead and keep celebrating through next weekend. :lol:

Bonnie scampers off and leaves a bottle of bubbly for everyboardie to enjoy! Image

Toothy also wishes Mac good luck for Friday's results. She's sure Mac has done well. :)

She's pleased to hear Author is feeling better and has some time off and books. All good. :)

The flyer has been produced for Calendar Girls and it looks mightily impressive. Even Toothy looks half decent (so to speak ;) ). Well, they are wearing black dresses in the choe photo - thank heavens! :D

Toothy has discovered Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes. She's a bit late finding out how wonderful he is in the role, but hey... She got there in the end. :D
