Re: RE: front porch/yard is toast

Pam, I am so sorry.

Donna is right -- get a camera.  If they won't let you in, buy one of those
throw-aways -- but get photos, as many as possible.

I am so sick of irresponsible parents.  I don't think the law in Texas holds
parents responsible for teenage drivers -- I know when the 16 year old
totaled our car a year ago, he didn't even call his parents -- called an
aunt, so his dad wouldn't find out.  They didn't even call their
insurance -- I did three days later when I still hadn't heard anything from
them and was accumulating medical bills.

In addition to a camera, get a lawyer.  Do it today.  I've regretted it ever
since we didn't, and if there is ever a next time, I'll call the attorney
before I call the cops.

If there is anything positive about this, it happened in February, when
things haven't yet fully  grown and there is still some time (it is Texas,
after all) to replace them.  An attorney might be able to make sure you can
hire someone to help with the physical labor.

Thank God you and Sugar are not hurt!
