I say with some pride that in nearly sixty-two years since I got my license I've never had an accident or even a ticket, and that includes the years I was driving all over as a consultant. Consequently, I had no idea of procedure in such an event. What should have been a half-hour excursion turned into a two-hour stay as Bill made calls (plural) to his insurance company. He talked to the agent, I talked to the agent, then it was Bill's turn again. Finally, all information was given and we shook hands. I thanked him again for waiting to tell me; I know he'd have rather had a poke in the eye with a frozen carrot.
Bess and I were barely inside again when Bill's insurance agent called to fill me in on what happens next and to assure me that Truck would be well cared for, a rental vehicle would be provided, and an adjuster would be contacting me to inspect the damage. Tony called just a short while later and we have an appointment here for Thursday.
The wind is up again this morning and the rain is pounding. Awww, crum.
