Heard “thank God the drought is over finally” in the store yesterday. We’ve got a long way to go before this drought is called over. Two storms over two evening periods gave us some nice moisture and while the storms were heavy and dropped a lot of rain, 15 minute storms are more damaging than nice. Albuquerque got yesterday’s storm after passing through our area, but they got the added benefit of 90 m.p.h. winds that caused a lot of damage. What ever happened to nice, day long, soaking rains that cause no damage?
She’s back at home. She will spend her final days in her room at Freedom Village. She’s happy to be home and went from anxious and problematic to calm and happy upon being placed in her room.
No real change with the sisters we have. Both have their own special grind here and they more or less just sit around and watch TV. Kinda like what I do I guess.
Arrangements have been made with Will’s family if the need arises for me to travel east earlier than originally planned. They understand and are very supportive of this trip. Erin is looking forward to this trip and while I’m slightly nervous of traveling alone with a hyper 4 year old, I’m looking forward to it too. I plan on taking her bike with and I’m looking forward to riding with her up there. I’m also bringing my large cooler and making the Lido’s Pizza run, if I can get dry ice. To carry all the stuff, I’m bringing my little trailer. May stop in Chicago to pick up certain things that have been requested to be brought back here. Maybe, maybe not.
It’s nice having the cameras all up and running again. Thanks to Dennis for all the help. We’re not quite finished yet, we have one more camera to install. that one should be in place in a week or so.
Here is a video showing how DUMB people are and why we need to ban the stupid from voting. They are signing a petition for something that doesn’t exist and no one questions that fact.
This was at a college campus too.
You can have my spot in the local game. I’ve been losing on a regular basis here. I do have fun though and I did win some pretty nice pots, but I blame Ted. He’s a jinx!
Aunt Ella is still with us. She’s been difficult in the hospital and they’re hoping to bring her back home today.
We had a nasty rain yesterday evening. It was my fault, I washed my Jeep. The storm was directly overhead and rained for 30 minutes or so. On the way home from poker I saw a lot of erosion damage. Joe’s going to need my tractor to repair his roads I’m thinking.
Spanish Market is this weekend. I guess I get my corn after all.
I had a meeting in LV for the marketing coop yesterday. I hate these large parent groups that oversee the smaller groups with a facilitator. We have 3 groups, agriculture, business and development and tourism, my group. The facilitator is there to cloud all issues. I was there to add a humor element.
Our group is past the planning stages, the other groups are looking at 2015 as a possible implementation date. We’ve hired a company to market tourism already and the others feel we should have run it through the committee before we acted on things. They felt that just because we can self finance it puts our group at an unfair advantage. Lindsay was getting ganged up on until I brought up the fact that our money was approved through subcommittees and we either spend our money on this project or waste it on others. Lindsay recovered and let them know that this is not group money but tourism money and we’re all moving to better the county.
Went home and grabbed Nina and returned to LV for dinner. Nice relaxed dinner. Nice ride home, chatting the whole way.
Spanish Market was incredible, or so I heard. We did not get there this year. Thanks Shirley. Indian Market will be my next chance to get some of that great corn.
I felt that my posting about the dead person on the bus was a bit vague and here I am to fix that lack of info. A lady that was traveling on a tour bus out of Mexico died of heat related issues and the driver pulled in here to off-load the rest of the passengers and proceeded to the hospital in Las Vegas for them to see to the dead lady. Police were called and 4 state cops responded. The hospital did not resurrect the dead lady and as of this writing she remains dead.
Sometimes, when I’m sitting here in the early morning hours writing this shit, I have to pause in wonder of all the weird stuff that happens here. So many strange things. So many strange people. While I would love to sell this place, I have to say that the thought of what I may miss in the future makes me think I’ll be a bit sad when it does eventually sell.
Sorry about that, I should have posted that earlier. I don’t know what it is about females, but since Dennis and I both wear a lot of Carhartt shirts, it’s gonna happen that we wear the same color shirt on occasion. Men never notice or comment about this thing, but females always comment about it. I guess its one of the basic insecurities that women face since this type of thing never happens to them. I’m sure that the all check when they get together. Yesterday Dennis and I wore green Carhartt shirts, his was a Henley and mine was a t-shirt. DAMES!
yay. She’s in a mood too. Won’t respond unless nagged. Just glares at us. Spent the evening looking in an empty glass. Good thing both Nina and Tori are good at nagging Shirley to a response.
The doctor says that Shirley is at the beginning of the end. It kinda makes me sad to know this but I hope it happens sooner than later. She has no quality of life. She doesn’t respond to any attempt of stimulation. She just exists. Her systems are just at the point of shutting down.
Does anyone care? Me either but I bet it’s a girl.
