Trying to get to my post at Unfair Park. Big weather issues here. See photo. Huge branch the size of the Sears Tower fell on wife's car. Worse: I had inadvertently left money bag containing $1 million-plus in rubles on top of car, part of inheritance I received recently from little-known uncle in Detroit. According to witnesses, branch caused money bag to fly off car into hands of passing homeless person.
Busy battling now with numb-nuts on 800 number at insurance company arguing with me about validity of codicil I inked onto margin of homeowner's policy last May specifically providing for such an event. Not about the money for me. It's the de-personalization. Will be there ASAP.
