She called this afternoon. Could we come pick up our car?

Blink. No almost-three-week wait this time? Sure!

The rental people had said I could leave the car there and they’d get it; Richard was talking to them while I was hurrying off to get ours.

I paid the deductible, but they were closing early because that was their last task of the day, and I asked, “How do I get the key back to Enterprise?”

“You give it to me,” said a by-now familiar voice as he walked in behind me.

I joked to her, “I’ll see you next week,” and she, knowing what we’d gone through twice now, half-joked, “I don’t ever want to see you again.”

Well, that’s some good news! Are you going to surround it with barbed wire in the driveway? Hang cowbells all over it?

Hooray! Ar least something worked out better than expected. I’m hoping you had the plate deterrent added and this really will be the last time you visit them.

So, I am curious to know…did you have the VIN number put on it this time? I am so sorry you had to do this again, although it sounds easier the second time!

I like the barbed wire and cowbells idea! Not sure how safe it would be for you Alison. (Although you know my thoughts on bubble wrap. Ha ha)

Glad your baby is home and I hope it stays safe.
