Friday, July 21, 2023 - MN

What a day yesterday was.  For some reason, it seems that the night before I go to Ben’s for my cleaning job, I am unable to sleep.  This happened Wednesday night and there was no alcohol (sometimes affects my sleep) or anxiety involved and I was tired and ready for rest when I went to bed.  I know it was after 12:30 am when I finally drifted off and the alarm was set for 6:30 - I was fully awake at 5:30. 

Cleaning went well and since Deb was watching Joey and I had other things going on in Ben’s neighborhood, I took a short nap and a shower when finished.  I then went to pick Charlotte up at her Inventor’s Camp.  As we were leaving, I rear ended the car in front of me.  I’m not sure what happened - I was either not completely stopped or I accelerated before she was completely out of the intersection but whatever, I was distracted and not focusing on what was going on around me.  Thankfully, it was just a fender bender and nobody was hurt.Most of the damage was to my car and even that isn’t bad

I have filed a claim and now I wait until hearing from an agent. The person I hit has been very calm and is not too stressed - I’m thankful for that.

Randy Sabien (Dawn’s guy friend) played a show at the 318 Cafe in Excelsior that night, so Ben and I went and had dinner with Dawn and Randy and watched the excellent and very entertaining show.  It was him and a guitar player plus a guest mandolin player and a singer.  What fun! Ben and I have been meaning to see a show together and this happened to be right close to home.
