    I finally read this & see it's a fellow Torontonian. Get well soon Aquaman and my prayers and thoughts are with you and your wife and family.
    Makes me realize again how quickly life can change. Like I've always believed, life is too short and precious to get worked up about minor irritants or annoying people. Don't sweat the small stuff - and it is all small stuff.

    john's message to me that he said i could relay to all of you

    Andrea

    Yes, typing is difficult at present. Here is a summary of what happened.

    We were to fly back with jetBlue to JFK and then on to Buffalo and pick up our car from the Hotel and drive back to Toronto. This we have done before. The JetBlue flight was very late arriving into Aruba from JFK by several hours. I asked the JetBlue personnel about connections to Buffalo due to the delay and offered to stay another night in Aruba. They assured me that we would connect. Got to JFK later than projected and then found out the flight to Buffalo was also delayed. Finally got to Buffalo in the small hours of the morning only to discover JetBlue had lost our luggage. They suggested calling at 8:15 in the morning when they expected the bags to arrive. Given this we decided to spend the night in Buffalo and get the bags in the morning. I called JetBlue at 8:15 only to be told they had arrived and JetBlue had already had them picked up and on delivery to Toronto. I asked Bobbie for the car keys and she thought I had them. I suspected they accidentally got packed. As we have a BMW with the enhanced embedded securit, it would have taken BMW 2-3 days to get a replacement key to us. I decided to rent a car from Hertz and drive to Toronto and get a spare set of keys. This we did. Hertz had promised to drive us to the hotel from their office to pick up our car. Upon returning the car to Hertz, they changed their mind as they were busy and short staffed. They deducted $15 from the bill and called us a taxi. It was a minivan and arrived about 5-10 mins later. Bobbie and I got into the centre seat. About 3 blocks form Hertz office the driver proceeded into an intersection turning left. He was fiddling with his cell phone and trying to look at someting on it. To my amazement he stopped in the intersection ( in the turn) to concentrate on the cell phone. Bobbie and I looked to the left at oncoming traffic. There was a Harley Davidson motorbike hurtling towards us. We both saw the front wheel lock up and we were t-boned with such force that the minivan skipped up and down to the left. The bike hit with such force that it partially tore off some of the rear of the taxi. The motorcyclist flew about 150feet into the intersection. The taxi driver left Bobbie and I locked in the taxi. I was desperate to get us out and finally succeeded.

    After this we decided again not to drive to Toronto as we were badly shaken up. The following morning, Friday, Bobbie awoke stiff and with some minor bruises on her back, but otherwise OK. I went to get a copy of the police report. It was not available, as the officer and the cruiser who attended at our accident were themselves involved in an accident later that night.

    We decided to drive back to Toronto and on the drive back I noticed that the traffic signs looked slightly different. The following week I commented to Bobbie that I was experiencing somethin with my eye. She looked at it and did not see anything unusual. The next wednesday I awoke blind in my right eye. Attended Emergency at hospital and was immediately referred to Sunnbrook Life Sciences...the leading hospital in Canada where I underwent treatment and surgery.


    Thats the story....a ltany of things going wrong!! The moral of the story...if you are in a cab and the driver starts playing with his cell....tell him to do it when you are not in the cab or demand he stop and you get out (if possible)
