Ryding Auto Body:All Parking Pillars should be round (not square or rectangular)

Ryding Auto Body

Great location that is easy to find & see from the road!

Right next door to California Sandwiches so my mother who hadn’t eaten could dash in quick for a delicious salad…Parking right in front…

Two minutes in the driveway & mark was outside assessing the damage…(Passenger door got dented as a square parking pillar does not respond well to a curve turn to the right around it-because parking pillars should all be ROUND with no corners!!!

new buildings know this-expecially tight parking lots under condominiums…
While I was on the iPhone with Desjardins Insurance Mark patiently waited for the all ok & heads up as to when the evaluator was coming in…My mum chatted happily with Mark about insurance deductibles on a Mercedes (high end cars are much more), & a story of a 24 year old Ferrari my mum’s friend was possibly purchasing…
The body work which involved replacing the whole passenger door then blending in the paint colour (Sundance metallic a tricky shade)…Also around the wheel, the body had to be fixed too-not even sure what Ryding did here because it looks so good…
The body work was done quickly, with no tiring phone calls back & forth…

Approvals were all done on Day One, Yay!
When the work was done, a phone call voicemail, & the next day I hopped on the subway at Wellesley station, rode south all the way down & back up again to Eglinton West subway station, then happily walked(summer day)up Marlee to Ridelle, Ridelle to Dufferin, then down to Castlefield, where Mario the lunch truck owner was serving up hot slices of fresh pizza…
Mark offered to buy me one, but instead I opted for the Mmmm Veal sandwich & 3 packages in the well thought out Mennonite trail mix which mario gave me a dollar off…

(the trail mix is in a long thin tube sort of shape so with one hand(if you are stopped at a red light, you can pour it into your mouth-which is great if you are low blood sugar from all the walking!)…
I didn’t get a rental car while my car was in the shop(Toyota Matrix) because Ryding is in a safe part of town & walking to & from there is a pleasure & subways & family are close by…(I grew up in Forest Hill not far away)…
The price for all that work was fair & I only ended up having to pay a $500 deductible, which I did with Zoe, who was kind & patient & friendly & helpful…
It was so enjoyable I forgot I had had such a stupid accident…Beware of rectangular or square shaped parking pillars!!! They catch you when you least expect it!
The job was done so fast even my husband wasn’t mad at me for not having the use of our car…
He subway-ed it up to Scarborough Town centre one day, & to be honest, it was fine & easier than sitting in traffic…
We got plenty of exercise without our car, & a few lifts from Mom, Thanks Mom!

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
