Believe me, I really don't care if you don't pay for food at the BBQ, and I'm sure everyone else will be happy to say the same. As far as the ride, I'm not sure who isn't spending the night, but I am sure we can find someone. Loosing the use of a car does do that to you doesn't it. I always feel totally stranded when my car breaks down or is otherwise indisposed. I hope we can arrange for you to make it up for this.
