It must be a slow news day in Forks, WA when a Twilight theft occurs. Those Twilight fans are not only obsessed (as demonstrated by moi) but apparently thieves as well. And stupid ones at that. Listen ladies, it's a badly-spray painted truck that doesn't run and was donated by some locals and the guy that owns the drive-in. Way to go Twilighters, way to score that ultimate memento from your trip to la-la land.
And what is wrong with the residents of Forks who say they don't know where to get a new cap and are too busy with all the visitors to look for one? Really? How hard is it to make some calls or do some research online? Unless they have chimps working the front desk at the visitor's center.
Or maybe they should just bid on the shiny chrome cap just listed on ebay.

Last night local celeb and uber famous painter Andrew Wyeth died in his Chadds Ford home at the age of 91. He painted "Christina's World" as well as many other super well-known works. He was the son of NC Wyeth and many of their family paintings hang on the walls of the Brandywine River Museum right around the corner. If you have never been there, I recommend a trip, it really is quite a beautiful collection of PA art, especially that of three generations of Wyeths. RIP Andrew.

Good news Townies. I met with Dr. Kim today and I might have approval/ go-ahead from my insurance company as early as tomorrow! Woot! I have to call tomorrow and find out what the dealio is. Once I have approval all I need to do is schedule the surgery. I'll let you know how the call goes tomorrow.
