Wow Greg, that SUCKS! I hope your insurance makes you whole again and you get back on the horse as soon as possible. Man, what incredible luck you have bro!

BTW, I used to live off Tenino Ct. in that little farm-like acreage just down the street from you off 45th. This was many moons ago (1989? something like that)....Man I miss PDX sometimes.

Best of luck to you. If you need anything, shout!

Holy crap! My family watched the news clip with our mouths open. Glad you escaped major injury. If that was me that guy would be as dead as fried chicken. Hope you get your life back together soon. Good luck.

Bleah, that's horrible.

Send me a PM if you want any plant starters when you get back on your feet. I'd be happy to drop them off wherever you are in the PDX area.

Thanks guys, yeah he had gotten in my face, I had just had reconstructive shoulder surgery 8 days earlier and there was no way I could have taken him. I did run for my pistol, I think that made him bail. The guy got out of jail 8 hours later. The judge ( judge Wallace) didn't feel it warranted man slaughter charges. The news stations are in constant contact and are going to go after the judge. The video was aired nationwide tonight , on fox news, CNBC, CNN. We are hoping the national attention will get the judges attention. Seeing the pictures is the only way to really know how bad it was, words just can't describe. After seeing the pictures the D.A. was planning on changing charges. My insurance is state farm. yesterday they wouldn't even return phone calls. I'm not sure when I will get a tank, it will probably be 6-10 months until I get a new house, I was considering getting an edge, or spec v in the mean time. I have to have surgery again, my bicep is currently in my elbow. I'm extremely thankful for everyone's support. I'm happy my cat made it, and we saved the koi for now. Not sure how my turtles will handle being moved during hybernation. Thank you again, I love this site and look forward to getting a tank again.
Thanks
Greg

What kind of turtles do you have? I wish I was back in Portland so I could offer to take care of them.

I looked it up. Crazy. I am so sorry you have to deal with this. I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. Just dealing with the structural damage would be enough for many to loose it, let alone surgery, pets, etc. Hang in there. I hope that guy gets locked up for a long time, and never drives again.
