Captain Kidd Karma, pt. 2

I finally got a hold of the insurance adjuster, after he didn't answer his phone all last night and this morning. The good news is that they're going to cover the repairs - the radiator, condensor, and bumper all have to be replaced. So instead of paying $1500.00 I'll just have to shell out $500.00.

Where that will come from remains a mystery.

The bad news is that they have none of the necessary parts on hand, and will not order them for immediate delivery, meaning it will be at least a week before they even start the repairs. So yes, I had my working, undamaged car for 20 minutes, and then turned it back in for the next 10 days.

Captain Kidd's Adventure Galley was constructed in a short five weeks, fitted out for its cruise and manned with experienced sailors - only to get as far as the Nore before being held up by an outbreak of war and embargo of civillian shipping for four months.

Let's hope the karmic similarities end RIGHT THERE. I shouldn't care to end my days doing the mid-air jig on Brighton Dock.
