Happy Solstice, everyone!

I am on my way out to an annual Solstice Party held at a friend's nearby farm. We start with a big bonfire and fireworks out in the corn field, then go indoors for a supper made from meat and vegetables produced on the farm. Lots of goodies, too. It is great fun!

That does sound fun! Hurray! You'll need a nice big fire with your nighttime temperatures. Burr!

I hit some sort of debris on the way home from work. Couldn't dodge it due to oncoming traffic. I don't think there's any damage but I need to check when I have daylight.
DM wanted Chinese food tonight so I don't have to cook. Hurray!

Will, hope no damage was done. Crying Several weeks, ago , at night, while driving across town to church on a very dark road I hit a huge tree limb that was lying across the road! Was not visible till almost on top of it. Was going fast and hit it hard. Amazingly it did no damage that I could find. The noise was terrible when I hit it. Sad So hopefully it will be the same for you.

People need to properly secure their loads. Glare

That's what happened to me. Between the dark and being blinded by headlights I was on it before I knew it. It was a thin box like frame of some sort. If I hadn't had cars on my tail I would have probably tried to salvage it to use in the garden. Rolling on the floor laughing
