Rain, Rain Go Away

It’s rained the entire month of June.
This week, they said we were finally going to dry out. Instead, it rained more than ever PLUS we had a storm with 94 mph winds that caused massive damage around town. We lost a tree, but compared to some of what I’ve seen around town, we were lucky,

I’m sick of rain.

I’m also sick of insurance companies…like the one who “insured” the girl who hit us last week, said she’d take care of it so please don’t call the cops, but looked a little like a skanky ho, so we called anyway, who gave her insurance info then left before the police got there because she’d obviously been drinking AND come to find out WASN’T insured, so not only was she probably tipsy  but definitely driving illegally as an uninsured motorist AND come to find out NOTHING happens to her because it costs too much to pursue legal action and the police don’t have time to deal with skanky ho’s who drive without insurance but we get to pay $250 to get the car fixed. Grrrr.
For a skanky ho, she sure was smart. The police said she was fine leaving once she gave us her “fake” insurance. If she had stayed she would have gone to jail for DUI and earned a big fat ticket for hitting us and driving without insurance.
WHY do I hate the insurance and the skanky ho? Because they called at the beginning of the week to let us know Julie said it was a 3-car accident (NO! Liar, liar pants on fire) and then said they had to investigate when they found out she lied then said their computers were down the next day then had us call their 800 number THEN lo and behold all the sudden Julie wasn’t insured by Farmer’s at all, her policy was out of date which I find very interesting since they’d started investigating what happened two days earlier, so maybe Julie the skanky ho wasn’t actually driving without insurance before the accident and maybe she and her (former) insurance company deserve each other. Grrrrrr.
I love my State Farm insurance agent, Tim Short. When DD started driving, he sat down with her and talked to her like a mature young adult, gave her his business card and said if there’s a problem, call. If it’s after hours, call the house. Why can’t all insurance agents be like him?
And why do skanky ho’s like Julie get away with driving?!?

Oh Wow

I have no idea how many years it’s been since I read The Bride, but MAN am I happy I re-read it today. Amazing, amazing book. Fabulous characters, great plot, a sexy romance. The book is almost 20 years old, but it’s definitely stood the test of time. This new cover sucks, but the old cover didn’t really fit it either. 🙂
Now I have to get to the library to find the rest of the books for sure. If they’re still as good as this one, I’ll have them all on my Keeper shelf. The one I remember most opened with two young girl friends at a fair laughing, but that’s all I can remember about it. I’m sure I can find it again.
