I don't know if I told you I had to go to court or not. State Farm wanted me to go and give my version of the accident.
They assured me it was nothing to worry about but since I had NEVER been to court I did worry anyway. In fact I worried more than I did about the surgery. well court date was yesterday and a good friend took me. We arrived early. Then the insurance adjuster arrived, then State Farm's lawyer arrived. 2:00 arrived and the party did not arrive. The lawyer came and told me the judge would wait a few minutes and if she did not come it would be dismissed. Then he disappeared and a while later appeared and said he talked to the judge and it was over. The judge signed and I didn't have to worry about it as it was finished, all done. I didn't even see the judge.
I had met a lady in a restaurant we both frequent often and who works in high places in the same place I went to court. She and I became friends and spoke to each other but one day she disappeared and I wondered about her. The day before my court date she came. I asked her if she had been sick, on vacation or just busy. She was impressed I missed her and wondered about her. Then I told her about my court date. She said I had nothing to worry about if I just had to give my version of what happened.
So many people down here drive with no driver's license and no insurance and we have to pay extra for uninsured drivers.
A first for me and all done. Now I just have to wait for them to reschedule my surgery. God has a time for all things and He does take care of us. We must never cease to give him thanks.
