And We're Back


Just like that, my car is back. Well, there's more to it than that. Someone thought it was theirs, so they took it (had it taken, actually, by a towing company, who is also now in trouble). I pointed out that it was not theirs, and got it back. They caught the lady at the tag agency trying to exchange my license plate for a new one in her name. I'll never understand people. But she is now in jail. For how long, who knows? I do have to drive it in someplace tomorrow to get the front end checked out for damage due to the rough tow job, but at least I know how I'm going to get home tonight.

That is really really weird!

I'm glad you have it back, hopefully not too damaged.

You know what would make you feel better? Digitizing old Xmas records, that's what.

Digitize some old Christmas music? Why, that's a great idea! I'm looking forward to that Ogden Nash LP I found last night, filed away in the wrong place. It's gonna be another Ding Dong Dandy Christmas!

I'm glad to hear it! I had my car towed earlier this year (they were evidently cleaning the street I was parked on that day), and I can remember the surge of panic as I realized my car was gone. And I remember the relief when I found out that my car was not, in fact, gone for good. Hopefully the tow job didn't do too much damage.

"Manwhile"?

Sorry. I meant "womanwhile."
