I hope you all had a good Mothers Day. I cooked lunch for my Mom and two of the three kids showed up for lunch too. We all had a nice visit. Mom loved her bird house, now that means I have to find a tree branch to hang it from for her. That probably won’t happen until Wednesday, its the only day we are not suppose to get rain.
Yesterday was cold and damp and so is today. Isn’t it funny how the weather affects your attitude. Mine sucks this morning. I came into work and the show room looked like a dump!! I think they party here on week-ends. So first thing I did was run the sweeper, then I cleaned the glass doors and emptied everyone trash can!! I really wanted to say something, but considering the mood I am in I thought better of it. Just did it and kept my big mouth shut!!!
The other thing that is bothering me is where I live we have a Homeowners Association and we have dues that are due and payable the first of the year. Well, needless to say there are dead beats who just wont pay. These dues maintain our sewer Lagoon. So, after 5 years in arrears the association which I am chairman of decided to sue them for the monies past due which is a sizable sum, which is needed for repairs badly to this lagoon. Now the thing that bothers me is we are sueing our neighbors and I hate it, but it had to be done or otherwise we would all have to move if we can’t maintain this lagoon. The EPA is still on our case for some violations and it takes money to fix these violations. So, we hired a lawyer, (how we are going to pay him I have no clue) and he filed the suit and now everyone is calling and wanting to settle. So I called the lawyer to see what I should do and he said to me:" I can’t tell you what to do" What??? You are our lawyer, now is it going to be better for us to take this to court or settle???? Its a simple question? Anyway I’m right in the middle of this mess and you ask why? The former chairman of the association is a preacher and he said he could not do this in his profession, so they voted him out and me in as the hit person!!!! As soon as I collect the monies for the association I am resigning!!! Just a mess!!! Our dues are only $10.00 a month and they won’t even pay that!! I bet some of your water and sewer bills are a lot higher, right? I’ve tried to maintain a good relationship with all of our 78 neighbors, but I guess this will blow that away at least with 10 of them huh? Just hope they don’t try to run me out on a rail!!! or something worse. Will keep you posted.
Sales here have dropped so bad since the price of gas is $3.89 a gallon. The price of diesel is $4.39 a gallon which takes to pull some of the larger 5th Wheel campers we have!!! How can anyone afford to go anywhere?? So , if the new people don’t buy us out we may have to shut down!!! Thats a bummer for these young men who have so much invested in this place. This gas thing has gotten way out of hand.
Ok, enough bitching for one day!!!
Hope you are having a good week, maybe mine will get better I hope I hope.
