First thing: Almost a month ago I started the process of transferring to my cell phone the phone number that was attached to the house in Augusta for 36 years. I was told the "import" [what they call this kind of phone number transfer] would take seven to ten days. We are on day 23 and it's supposed to be in the hands of the most qualified technicians at the cell phone company. I have spent a minimum of six hours on hold and in numerous conversations trying to get this straightened out. So far no go. Worst case scenario is that it doesn't work and that number is lost. It's true I want to salvage it for old time sake; it's also true that friends who have moved away still call that number when they come back to the east coast.
Second thing: Two weeks ago Saturday a woman driving a 2002 mini-van backed into my parked car. It wasn't a tap. It was a crunch. She took responsibility and her insurance will cover all the costs. It's inconvenient only for me, the one who had the damage appraised and has to take the car in for repairs and will drive a rental for three days. There was not a scratch on her car. Isn't that always the way?
