08:03 – We’re back in stock and shipping on the chemistry kits. This week will be heads-down work on the biology book.

Barbara and I made a Costco run yesterday. As we exited Costco, Barbara signaled and started to change into the left lane and we were sideswiped by a blue sports car. Barbara jerked our car back into the right lane, and at first I wasn’t even sure the two cars had made contact. The driver of that car just continued driving down the road, and Barbara followed her. She turned off into the PetSmart parking lot, where we looked at the damage to the two cars. There wasn’t much apparent damage. Some scraping of the paint on both cars and minor dents in the panels.

Both Barbara and the other driver, a young woman named Marisa Barrone, were quite calm. No one was injured. She said she’d blown her horn, but neither Barbara nor I heard it, although we didn’t have the radio on. My guess is that she was moving a bit fast and perhaps talking on her cell phone. At any rate, things remained friendly and we called the police and waited for them to arrive. The cop didn’t issue a ticket to Barbara. I’m not sure whether or not he ticketed Marisa. So this morning I’ll call our insurance agent and find out what we have to do to get Barbara’s car repaired.
