Yesterday and let's GOOOOO!


Yesterday. I loved that song by the Beatles.
Anyway Yesterday I worked. Raking rocks, preparing a wild area around our new drive at the other condo. It is not ready fo the pine needles Shirl has ordered. She says I can’t pay for them. Would you argue with her?
I did get the gate ready to install also, I may take a picture. This probably doesn’t make sense, but when Have I ever? I am getting ‘stationary fever’. I just coined that phrase. We are never supposed to be in the same place over three weeks. Here we have been here two months.
We have accomplished some things, and the one is the drive. It is completed.
Ever tried to argue with city hall, forget it. Ann Drive (st) (they also cannot decide on the name), on which we live, on all survey maps joins our property. It was an unpaved road; Just a block long, with us at the end. The city paved with thirty feet of our drive and quit paving. Now a couple days ago we paved to the end of our property. Now we have that thirty foot gap of gravel road, separating us from city paved road. It is not a big deal, but you cannot argue with city hall.
You know! I really do not care. Why worry about something you cannot change? The Condo is up for lease or rent now. I hope Shirl gets good neighbors, because when we get this trip all worked out, ’we are gone’.
I don’t think I am supposed to go into the last folks who lived in the empty condo. The guy was a son of a very good, long time friend. It did not work out too well. May be Shirl will put something in her Blog concerning the bail bondsmen etc. I am not going into that. Nor will I go into the previous tenant with Big dogs in the house, like small horses. HA!

Funny thing is these two Condos are probably the nicest in the city. I cannot manage rentals, I must use an agency. Tom is the man. He can do what is necessary to manage the property. Once we had given up on collecting the last month’s rent and damages. Tom handled it, collected the rent and damages. I have a rough time doing that. I would say just forget it. Thank God for Tom. He does what is right.
I got too personal, but I am running off at the fingers.
Thanks for coming this way.

PS:
Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
