[TR] Kiss of the Cuckoo

I believe in my last post I was mentioning how everything in my TR3 had been sorted much to my satisfaction.  The car was registered.  Yesterday it passed inspection easily.  I was positively happy and confident as a puppy with an old stinky sneaker.  I believe I also mentioned having driven my son from San Fransciso to New Hamsphire, a distance of over 3,000 miles.

The three thousand and tenth mile.  This morning I got ten miles from home to work in the dark on the first drive in the LBC this season, when a deer jumped in front of the car and I hit it at 60 MPH.  It was a big deer.  I'm thinking more proactively about Randall's LED headlight project....

Driver fender and side of the apron very much crunched.  

It'll be in the body shop for a while.  That's what I get for baldly stating how good things were.  Kiss of the cuckoo.

I'm thinking to sue.  That deer must have been inebriated drinking acid water from the coal fired power plants in the Mid-West.  Just, I doubt that deer's family is going to step up.

Anyone else have such bumps with drunk critters?
