I have excellent news!!!  Remember I told you that I had purchased Travel Insurance from ACCESS AMERICA??  Before I broke my foot, I had plans to go to College Station, TX.  I wisely bought the Travel Insurance when I purchased my airline tickets. My boyfriend wouldn’t spring for the insurance when he bought our tickets for Vegas.  And, because I wasn’t able to go — he was just out the cost of the airline tickets for me. He also had to endure Vegas without me being there  —  but, such is his rotten luck.

Maybe I had a premonition, I don’t know.  But, cheapie me bought the travel insurance.  I had had a very bad case of the flu a couple of weeks before I bought the tickets.  I really just thought that maybe I might just come down with something serious like the Bubonic Plague or something else that would render me unable to get out of bed.  I NEVER thought I would break anything!!  I had never broken a bone in my life before and no one else in my family of seven children has ever broken anything either. (None of the nieces or nephews, either.)  Somehow I thought I was invincible.

After I broke my foot and was in such  horrible pain, I filled out the forms and got the doctor to sign the forms, giving his permission for me not to travel. Well, the other day I received a check from them for $313.33!!!!  (Enclosed please find check in the amount of $313.33 as payment for “Trip Cancellation” due to “Injury of insured”.)  I didn’t have to bug them or call them twenty-two times  —  they just paid the claim.  GO ACCESS AMERICA!!!

You never know when you’re going to step in a hole and break something.  I am planning to buy the travel insurance from now on.  It cost me less than twenty bucks.

    Thank you for your unexpected compliment!! I don’t know quite how to respond. I did everything from scratch — without any help from my loser boyfriend (Harris), my daughter who just got a job with the school system as their Tech Support person, or my son who is a big effing deal Webmaster!! (He recently quit his very well-paying job — he’s the sole support for his wife & two little, little kids & moved to San Francisco to improve on his dot com start-up.) Anyways, with no one to help or advise me, I constantly don’t know what to do or how to do it. I must tell you that I am flabbergasted that 1. Anyone even reads my blog & 2. Anyone thinks it’s good.

    I really started this blog because I had broken my foot and it inspired me to help people. I have been an insurance agent for about 8 years. I figured that people have lots of questions about insurance. I know more than I think I know. Usually, people would buy from their local agent and that is just fine by me. I will only give honest opinions about insurance. If any readers have questions — be sure to post them in the comments. Thank you again, Sandy. You are too kind.

    I’m definitely purchasing insurance for our honeymoon, because you just never know. Weather, sickness, unexpected pregnancy and the need to reschedule! It could happen (though I really really hope it doesn’t!). I’m glad to hear that it worked out so well for you. As always, thanks for the advice!

    Date Girl: I soo enjoy your blog!!! I am very busy with my full-time job and other businesses. I never have time for fun. But, your blog is my guilty little pleasure. Well, I really don’t feel that guilty. It’s just fun and makes me think of when I was young.

    Yeah. get the insurance. How about if you had gone to Hawaii for your honeymoon this past weekend?? Well, I guess the bad weather would “bond” a couple. And most assuredly give them something to tell their grandchildren.
