For warm weather that is...my gaud, will it ever happen???

Spring cleaning. It is done...mostly, with only minor details to go. I've spend all week, every day...HOURS!! I haven't felt good for nearly a year so a lot of things went undone...that deep cleaning, so there was much to do. I even managed to let go of a lot of stuff 'n things (will wonders never cease??? LOL)

So enough about that. Now I'm ready for summer but I'll settle for at least 60 degrees 'n up! Finally the rain has ceased and I think we got a total of at least 4-6 inches this past week with lots of flooding. Today the sky is blue but the wind is sharp and cold. Susie is mowing our yards, bless her heart! But the grass is finally green, thick and long. The mower she gave me last year took a crap so I can't help her...yet. She promises me another one this summer.

Looks like there'll be another garage sale this summer that I swore I wouldn't have ever again....and I wouldn't have 'cept I can't see giving all my stuff away that I've let go of. I can use the money just as much as the thrift shops!

Oh...Susie bought a really neat golf cart for this summer. The one she had needed new batteries that was going to cost a fortune so she gave it to one of her renters that is always helping her with one thing or another. The old one and the new one has a small truck bed and this allows her to use them as a tax write-off as she uses them to haul tools for her properties. But the new one is gas, not batteries and she had it all decked out so it is street legal. Now we can join the rest of the golf cart crowd just scooting all over town to visit with everyone and even use it for going to garage sales!

Those idiots that lived down the street from me last summer is back...grrrrrrrr! The CPS gave them 24 hours to vacate that trailer and it was suppose to be condemned but it never was. It is a mess just as much as they are. The gas company even took away the gas meter! The trailer is filthy and fraught with rodents. These people are the worst of the worst. The mom use to put her son (when he was little) through peoples windows so he could unlock the door so they could steal stuff. Now that kid is always in trouble and is a threat to the neighborhood, not only stealing but vandalism of the park and a bully to the smaller kids.

Mom is sleeping with her son-in-law's brother. The daughter 'n son-in-law may not be with Mom for now. The son-in-law, Paul has a warrant out on him for probation violation and we don't know at this point if he's been picked up or if he has taken off somewhere. There are at least 2 sons with Mom and they both are trouble. They are heavily into spice...Mom, too. So it looks like we've got our summer cut out for us as the neighborhood watch to get rid of them again.

The town has declared war on all these properties that are trashy, rodent infested and otherwise violate town ordinances. The problem is...getting them to act on them. Let me tell ya...Susie will be all over them like a dirty shirt! I've never seen anyone who can get things accomplished like she can...she is like a pitbull with a bone and they will rue the day she walks into city hall with that letter in hand!

Anyhoo...she just called and said she's fixin' lunch so I gotta go. Ya'll have a good Sunday, be safe 'n keep smilin'....

I feel the same way you do with having certain neighbors who you thought you finally got rid of to only return like a bad penny. Those kind of neighbors are hard to get rid of. I have had my fair share of these people.

When you do finally get rid of them, there's always others who move in your area who are even worse!

The way this place was beginning to look, I bet folks thought they had a trash problem on their hands, but none of them know me, other than on sight, and I'm slowly getting things cleaned up and straightened up. But I do know what you were dealing with, and it isn't easy to keep from getting a mob together and just burning the place down. Not everyone that lives in a trailer is like that, but enough of them are that the name "trailer trash" came in to our vocabulary.

Keep at it Softie, eventually maybe we will get thru with all the needs to be done, then start all over again.

It will be three days of rain off and on beginning this evening, But I got my dirt and a lawn mower so I'm content.

But the new one is gas, not batteries and she had it all decked out so it is street legal.

With the price of gas that could be a wise investment.

I stopped reading right there. I'll pass on the white trash as I remember it all from last year. I don't know what was weirder the white trash or OC strange way the neighborhood watch acted

We finally had a blue sky day today! And the rivers are all starting to recede and the flooding is starting to disappear. Some people unfortunately got hit pretty hard. Most I got was a mini lake in my backyard, but that was from rain, not from the river...I'm too far from the river, and up on higher ground.

I'll be doing my spring cleaning in the next couple of weeks. Just want the weather warm enough so I can have the windows opened to air out the house, but to also get them cleaned also. Much easier to take them out when it's warmer out.

Dogs are shedding like crazy now...so my vacuum has been doing triple duty cleaning up dog hair.

I feel for you on the trashy neighbors...had that problem a few years ago...thankfully the landlord of the duplex they were renting threw them out. I'll never forget the day I got home from work and couldn't park in my driveway because their company was using MY driveway! Normally I'm a nicer person, but that day, I just followed the noise of the party, knocked on their door, and told them their guests had 5 minutes to move their cars before I called the cops for trespassing. Went in the house, let the dogs out, and looked outside to see that my driveway was emptied. Yes, I do have a good sized driveway, and yes, I most likely would let the neighbors guests park in it....after I'm asked if it's ok, and I can still use my own driveway!
