Grinding Of Metal Upon Metal



The grinding of metal upon metal Is such a sickening sound Like dollar bills flying out the window It's off for repairs you're bound Times you dread while driving a car Hope upon hope you avoid Physical contact with another vehicle Your day is totally destroyed Happens many times every single day In the age of this frantic pace It's bound to happen, this aggravation An age that we all must face Who knows where all this is leading Will we all just turn into mush From this totally ridiculous style of living We'll be nothing but bits of dust © Jack Ellison 2013

    He's a very easy going soul... don't know how he does it but he remained cool though he was totally not to blame! I'm very proud of that man!!!! Hugs xoxox

    A devastating occurrence to be sure - especially to a prized possession. I hope your son escaped any injury though, Jack.

    No injuries, just to a car that he is so proud of, an Audi! Damage doesn't appear all that much but knowing how things can appear not too bad but it still ends up costing between $2000 and $3000! Such is life! Big hugs xoxox

    Thank you my dear Lucilla! It was my son's car... just a minor scrape but will probably cost the insurance company 2 or 3 thousand to repair! :( Hugs, Jack xox

    My son was beside himself... and to make it worse, the blame was not his! Hugs xoxox

    I'm very sorry to hear about your son. Like him, I too cherish my vehicle (I worked hard for my baby). I would be equally devastated. But, the beauty in this, your son is ok. Audis can be replaced. Respect to you for this writing.

    Much appreciated my friend! It is his pride and joy! Cheers!

    Dragon thinks you'll help. But now he's worried we're all dusting away... He knows I sweep up dust daily... and human are so fragile... so he went to the corner to cry... Thinking we're all dusting away to nothing... I tried to explain we're not like that. Then he found a piece of lent on my clothes and cried all over again... Poor baby Dragon!... Then Hubby showed Dragon his belly lint... Bad Hubby!... Had to offer Dragon a second breakfast to distract him. It Worked!... That's Dragon for you!

    Do any of your guys drive? If dragon does, it must have to be a convertible! LOL xoxoxox

    oooo you're right, it's never ever a good sound , I can't think of any circumstance where that sound could be a good one! Be careful out there!!

    It actually just happened to my son and his prized Audi! He was devastated! It can happen in an instant even though I pride myself as being a good and careful driver! :( Hugs to you my dear Rebecca xoxoxox
