Show And Tell

Finally managed to get some pictures from my digital camera using the Camera and Fax Wizard on the laptop. Here's a picture of what I came home to on Tuesday: My wrecked trailer:

Sorry, Fred, you did already write about your trailer in that long post from the other day.

I guess the girl that lives a few houses up the street was heading to work, got distracted, and smacked into the back of the trailer. It spun around and when we came home from Frisco, the front of the trailer, where the hitch is, was on the sidewalk.

I figured it might of just been someone fooling around 'til we got closer.

Two of the neighbors said the girl kept on driving, but I found a note on my door from her. She said she drove around the block and knocked on our door but no one was home and she didn't have anything to write a note, so she went to work and left the note on her way home from work.

Makes you wonder because the girl that works at the group home across the street stopped by this morning. First time I'd ever talked to her.

She said she saw the trailer get hit and pointed to the car that did it up the street. Apparently she thought it was a hit and run, too. I told her the girl had left a note, but thanks for the concern.

Now I'm dealing with her insurance company. They've been pretty good, at least so far. Problem is, they don't have an adjuster up here and they didn't think one could come up here until next month. She needed at least a picture of the damage to get started.

I finally got one to her after figuring out how to get it from the camera onto the laptop.

I was under the impression that there were independent insurance adjusters that can handle stuff like that for companies that don't have people in a given area. I guess not.

Well, hopefully you can get it fixed or replaced. Glad to hear you got your camera working. You will have fun with your digital camera.

You are correct - there are independent adjusters here. Some companies choose to send someone a long distance though as they believe they save money using their own employee out of San Jose or wherever. Sometimes all that is needed is a photo and an estimate to get the claim settled and maybe the person you are communicating with at the ins. company is going to handle it this way.
