Defense

Day 91


My Lawyer
7:15am:
This morning, Little iPhone and George shall travel from Beaverton to the City of Lake Oswego, Oregon. The rest of the Scampy RV Team will remain in Beaverton.

We are traveling to Lake Oswego to meet our lawyer for the first time. We have arranged for Uber Taxi to drive us.


 It is 11:35am. I just got out of my lawyers office. It was a very good experience for me.

 I am composing this 11:35am Blog post using my iPhone. That is the reason that my regular blog format is not being used.

 I now believe, after speaking with my attorney that all will go well for me.   The cost for my lawyer totals $2000.  That will pay for my lawyer's cost, up to the start of a trial. However, it is, in my opinion, very little chance of a  trial.

 Uber Taxi
 I used Uber taxi to travel from Beaverton to where I thought my lawyers office was located in  Oswego Lake.  However, that location is where my lawyer had his first office seven years ago.

 Using Uber taxi   I was able to recover and arrive at my lawyers office in 20 minutes.
 Fantastic!! 

12:40pm:
Back in Beaverton
The Uber drive back to Beaverton went sooooo smooth! UberX! The only way to taxi! 😎


4:00pm:
Lowe's to pickup a drill
The Scampy RV Team is Afternoon Camped in Lowe's parking lot in the Town of Tigard, Oregon. We just finished picking up a hand drill, when a man outside
called out, "George!"

We just love when that happens! It means a Reader has come to call! This time, it was two Readers. Husband and wife Ron and Joann Stone. Ron & Joann are wannabe RVers.

All three of us sat on MsScampy's bench seats and talked and talked! This was the very first time that MsScampy experienced three persons inside before! We did not know if three would be comfortable inside. Well....it was plenty comfortable. For sure!

Little iPhone captured a new pic of George for Facebook! We have to get the pic uploaded to Facebook.

Here is a preview!

  3. I Do Not work for T-Mobile. But I just signed up for this plan. We were on a different T-Mobile plan which worked for us. Maybe this would work for somebody?

    1. Freebird,

      I am of the opinion, that the URL that you referenced on your comment may be just the tip-of-the-iceburg for T-Mobile.

      I am NOT familiar with all the ins-and-outs. But the rough story is, that years ago, there was an auction.

      In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) conducts auctions of licenses for electromagnetic spectrum.

      I do not understand how T-Mobile did it, but somehow T-Mobile either out-bid, or the other big carriers simply failed to bid at all. Because T-Mobile got there hands on nearly all the available spectrum!!!

      That gave, as I understand it, T-Mobile a tremendous amount of muscle in their business. My grasp of what that means in the future is, that at some point in time, there is coming a future where there will be NO Verizon in the carrier game anymore. Even giant AT&T may become a minor league player.

      For now, this is only a hypothesis on my part. Interesting times may be coming!!!!

      George

    1. Freebird,

      I believe that I am paying Verizon $60 for what Verizon labels an Unlimited Plan.

      However, there are many caveats in Verizon's Unlimited Plan!

    2. George, AT&T currently has the best data plans. They guarantee full speed for the contracted amount per month, after that they reserve the right to slow you down if you're on a congested tower.

      But unlike other companies that slow you down for the rest of the month, AT&T restores you to full speed as soon as the congestion passes!

      The current hot deal is the Connected Car Unlimited plan for $20 a month. Yes, $20 per month for unlimited 4G, subject to temporary slowing (which rarely happens) after 22GB.

      It was originally designed to be used with Onstar equipped cars so kiddies can surf the web and stream movies in-car.

      Then AT&T found a device called a Mobley that plugs into a car's OIB2 diagnostic port and turns the car into a hotspot, and began offering the plan with it.

      Next people discovered the Mobley only takes 12 volt power from the OIB2 port, and several enterprising souls on Ebay and Amazon began offering AC, cigarette lighter and USB powered adapters and the race was on.

      Demand has definitely outstripped supply and the Mobley is frequently out of stock, but AT&T keeps getting more from the manufacturer.

      Check https://att.com/mobley to see if they're in stock. Follow the prompts through selecting whether to go for a 2 year plan or buy it up front, then it will tell you if it's currently available. If it is, you can sign up online - it's a stand-alone plan, you don't need any other AT&T device or phone.

      If that doesn't work, it might be worthwhile to switch your phone to AT&T to get another one of their data plans, they all work the same way, after you reach the data cap you may be temporarily slowed down but you're restored to full speed afterwards.

      Even when slowed, the speed is still enough to surf the web or stream a single SD video.

      I don't work for or have any affiliation with AT&T, I'm just very happy with my Mobley. I've had it for 3 months now and it works as advertised.

      P.S. ... sorry about the deleted messages, but there's no way to edit after posting and they had lots of auto-correct errors from my tablet (I'm using my laptop now).

    Question for you
    $60 dollars for two lines Are you using the second line ( if yes )
    Between the two phones will you go over the 32 gig limit. (? )
    And will you be happy with only 3G service

    ReplyDelete
  6. First it is no contract so we can opt out. One line is mine one is hers, I use home Wi-Fi mostly, maybe 2-3 hundred megs a month on phone. We were paying 94$ a month for pair. Time. Will tell.

    2. Ed, Carol -- George's attorney and his staff will be putting in about four billable hours attempting to solve George's problem. Such time could be spent in meetings, phone calls, and e-mails with the city attorney, research for use in court when it convenes, and the attorney's travel time. The dollar amount does not look unreasonable for the west coast.

    3. Ed, Carol and Gopher the dog,

      I am wondering why your comment appears [maybe?] to be, maybe a bit angry?

  8. LOL, attorneys do not guarantee results but wouldn't that be nice? Wouldn't it be cheaper to just plead it out and maybe pay a nominal fine? By the time you figure a fine in, you may be pushing the maximum fine.

    1. Another way of looking at it,,, if you can walk away without a misdemeanor on your record((( priceless)))

    2. At George's age and permanent retirement a misdemeanor is nothing to be concerned with

    3. Well, I'm 82, and I wouldn't like that on my record!

    4. Maybe a withheld adjudication can be obtained and if probation is completed, the charge is dismissed.

      If you have a misdemeanor on your record
      Good luck trying to get into Canada

    6. Depends on the misdemeanor. A DUI or something like that, no entry. Other misdemeanors are not such a big deal. But like I said, pay a small fine, get a withheld adjudication, do your probation and get it dismissed. I come at these things from a how to minimize cost perspective.

  9. I use Uber here in Mexico. Works great, good service, clean drivers, air conditioning and my choice of music.

  11. We have two phones, one with Sprint and one with T-mobile. We get unlimited data for movies (netflix and amazon prime) on the T-mobile. It works well. We use the Sprint for our data stuff. Both are old plans. The Sprint is 60.00 and the T-mobile is 40. I wonder if we should switch to just T-mobile and this plan. What do you know about Sprint George?

    1. Janet,

      Don't know anything about Sprint.

      Did you tap the [Link] in the "BAD NEWS FOR VERIZON!" in my comment above?

      T-Mobile may, sometime in the future, be the only game in town in the World of carriers!
