Wednesday, June 29, 2022 – Got My New Phone Working, Yay!

Hey Sweetie,
Changed my mind about going to Okeechobee, figured if I picked up the phone from the post office, I’d be able to activate it and start working on it, which is exactly what I did. I also stopped at Tractor Supply for feed and hydraulic oil before getting back to camp. The crazy dog lady was still here, and so was her truck, even though she’d been borrowing phones and making calls again to get a wrecker out here to take it to the dealer. Apparently, several people came out several times and for some reason, they couldn’t get in (I’m guessing she gave them the wrong combination, and they didn’t bother to climb the fence), but she should have waited at the gate for them and never did. Anyway, I spent the afternoon getting my new phone in order, though I’m embarrassed to say that, in fact, the first phone did have a battery, hidden in a little cardboard compartment that I never saw, but found with the second phone. I’ll be sending that phone back anyway, hopefully I’ll get the full refund. This new phone fits perfectly in a nice little wallet case I bought, and once I got it up and running, it’s working perfectly. Spent a lot of time talking to the other campers, they’re all pretty tired of the dog lady using them. One camper is a psychologist and took the time to counsel her a bit, though I doubt it will do much good. At the end of the day, someone came and got her, but her truck is still blocking half the road. James came by to check it out, but there wasn’t anything to be done at that point. Later the Law Enforcement guy called, I told him we’d have a trespassing problem after noon tomorrow, since her permit expires tomorrow. I don’t think I’ll be around for the fireworks, though, I have two vet appointments near Okeechobee, and I have to return these two phones tomorrow to the Verizon store, so I’ll probably be gone before he gets here. Probably for the best, since I’m public enemy #1 in her eyes. Settled down for the evening, very happy with how my new phone is working, texting, phoning, all that good stuff. Time for shower and bed now, though! Good night, babe! Love you!
