The Saturn will never again be adorned with slain ducks. Here it is after last night's accident.




Was leaving Dallas around 7:30 last night to head home to Texarkana. Supposed to meet the wife @ Bass Pro in Garland and we were going to follow each other home.

Me and the dog were westbound on Northwest Highway and going about 50 mph when a woman in a mini-van turned left in front of me @ the intersection of Buckner and Northwest Highway. I didn't have time to react and pretty much T-boned her at full speed.

Both airbags deployed. I was pretty shaken up. Maverick was riding in the back and slammed into the back of the front passenger seat. Knee and back aren't feeling so hot today-going to the hospital in a bit to get checked out.

Service King already called to confirm that the car is done for. We are just glad to be here today.

RIP Saturn

Dang Cable, glad to hear you and the dog are OK. I see a 4x4 in your future! Maybe Saturn makes one?

Sorry to hear about the wreck and your vehicle, glad that you and your dog are okay.

I was remindd Saturday morning of just exactly why I hate going to Dallas, those folks are nuts when it comes to driving.

Hope you get to feeling better.

buy a prius. A bloody prius would totally outdo a blood saturn.

now that you have been freed from the evilness of automobiles you can go fully green. I am excited to see the picture of a limit of fat mallard drakes hanging on the handlebars of your new bicycle. Now that would be green hunting.

Thanks guys,

All x-rays for me were negative. Mav is moving around kinda slow today too- he is going to the vet for his turn if he doesn't start moving around better tomorrow.

I freakin' hate dealing with insurance companies and rental car people, police etc... Looking forward to that circus

Seth, you are right...trucks sure are cheap right now.

Cable, it might be a blessing in disquise. Now you can get a pickup. I tried duck hunting out of a car with a leather interior, I'll never do that again. Wet labs and leather are a bad combination. It took spraying it with Fabreeze on a daily basis to even make the thing drivable. Now with a Saturn I'll venture to say, you probably didn't have to deal with leather, but believe me a pickup makes duck hunting so much easier.



Isaiah 40:31 "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

May the Saturn forever roam the happy hunting highways in the sky, blood streaming gallantly, and a mixed bag permanently fixed to the hood. On another note, glad you and the dog are ok. Good luck on the vehicle hunting.
