Pretty much SSDD every day this week. SWMBO had last Monday off (with most of the rest of America) but other than that nada. Couple of nice days but more cloudy and cold (and some rain). Sucks! I am SO ready for Summer.
Not sure if things are going to work out with our Renter. The nicest thing I can say is that “our lifestyles just don’t mesh.’ The worst I can say is “Every time I hear their boom box car (which drowns out everything (everything!) else) or their friend who has to yell everything he says (which drowns out everything else) I inch a bit closer to exercising an eviction notice. I like the quiet country living and I’m not getting it (on the weekends at least).
Plus me and the Dog can’t take off all our clothes and go for walks with their friends gathered out there. Which sucks. I don’t care if they are mostly all male (which brings up a whole other boatload of questions). One of the reasons we moved here is when the wx gets nice, me and the Dog take all our clothes off and go for walks.
Mostly it’s the noise though. There’s a shit load I can ignore if it’s quiet.
Got contacted by the Yeasu repair people: it’s going to cost me $290 + shipping to get my radio fixed and back. Said an eprom was shorted (???) and the faceplate was missing characters (which seems to be a regular complaint of 857d owners). So, paid that and hopefully my radio will be back well before Field Day.
Burgers and Baked Beans for dinner tonight. Think I’ll be glad for my cpap later!
Weather varies from cloudy and kinda cool to sunny and HOT and me and the Dog try to dress for it all. When we gotta get dressed that is.
Been busy doing yard work stuff, including whack-weeding about .5 miles around the edges of the property and the trail the Dog and I walk several times a day. Way Too Much Whack-Weeding! I’m too old for this crap.
Other than that just not a whole lot going on. Sometimes being “retired” just ain’t worth it.
The Yeasu folks got my radio and let me know they’ll get to it when they get to it. Could take 2 to 6 weeks just to be diagnosed.
Set up my real spray paint machine to paint the fence out back. Took the fence apart so I wouldn’t spray the house at the same time. Was spraying one section when the pressure hose split. They Waz Paint Everywhere! Wasted about half of the paint before I could get it turned off. Aaarrggghhhh! So I would up doing one face of the different sections by brush before I ran out of paint. Have to get some more. Put the fence back in place to get it out of the way.
Ex-Renter shit: Got word that he told a friend that he was going to invite some people to help him move his shit and try to kill us all before the Sheriff could kill him. Basically suicide by cop. So the Sheriff’s went over to talk to him and he cancelled coming over. Good move…
Later, when they went back to arrest him for several No-Contact violations, the idiot fought with them. So, he got arrested for Criminal Mischief, Official Misconduct (no-contact stuff), and Resisting/Interfering with Police on top of the other felony’s. His bail is $100k per charge.
I was going to get rid of his “stuff” before all this. His lawyer (scum sucking lawyer) mailed me a letter saying I didn’t have the authority to evict the ex-renter (which I did according to the lease) and “asking” that I keep his stuff until he can get it. (Which won’t be for awhile now unless he can make $300k bail.) So I’m thinking of piling it all under my deck and covering it with a tarp. And charging him $100/mo for storage.
So, interesting week even though I didn’t get out of the house that much. SWMBO gets to pick the restaurant tomorrow since I chose the all-you-can-eat place last Saturday. I really look forward to our dates!
Picked SWMBO up cause it’s Friday. Nice!
