The Beat Goes On and On...

We are weary. When Chuck brought up today’s mail from the box, we found several items concerning the accident. It happened three weeks ago today, and we still don’t have the Subaru back. What followed were lots of phone calls and faxes - our insurance company, the other driver’s insurance company, the dealership, the auto body shop - and then some more back-ing and forth-ing in various combinations. Bless their hearts, our winning streak continues, in that everyone was easy and pleasant to deal with! When all was said and faxed, we learned that our car makes the trip to the body shop first thing tomorrow to begin getting all smooth and shiny once again. Sitting on the curb in the Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot on November 30th, we never guessed it would take this long. I do know that in the big scheme of things this is small potatoes. Really I do. Patience. Patience is a virtue. Apparently patience is the lesson to be learned this month. Luckily I still have ten days left to get some!

Maybe the music of my favorite animated cartoon from childhood: The Vince Guaraldi Trio’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will lift my spirits. That’s the ticket! W.W.C.B.D.? What Would Charlie Brown Do? :-)
