“The dent in his car is hardly cold and he's coming over here to claim his pound of fish.”

Archie Bunker, "Edith's Accident." All In The Family. TV series 1968-1979.

TIME:  3:39 PM
PLACE:  Driveway
SUBJECT:  Body damage on the Corvette

So, yesterday, we were flying merrily down Highway 55 in HandsomeHusband’s pride and joy – his Corvette.  We had driven up to Podunk to visit with Miss Dana and had a lovely time.  We had been on the road for the return trip for about 3.5 hours.  I was just beginning to check my eyelids for leaks, and was almost in a Zen-like state, when I simultaneously heard HH swear and a big “CLUNK” of something metal being caught in the front wheel well and then bouncing off of the passenger side door.  Ugh…that’s not something you want to hear.  When he could, HH drove onto an exit ramp, pulled over on the shoulder and we both got out to assess the damage: Let’s see, we have a blemish on the front bumper; some minor damage to the wheel well and this: an ugly gouge on the passenger door.  Bum-mer.  Does anyone know a good auto body repairman who specializes in fiberglass?
