Worked all day Monday and Tuesday until I finally got my taxes done. Had paperwork strewn all over the coach, coffee table and the folding table that I set up. Took my paperwork to the CPA on Wednesday and picked them up yesterday (Friday). He filed them electronically so the information has been received by some IRS computer and now all I have to do is wait for my refund to arrive in the same fashion.
While I was working on my taxes I heard a lawnmower close by. That elevated my blood pressure that was already through the roof, thinking that it might be Mata Gatos (mother’s worthless yardman) as I thought I had made it clear that we did not need his services anymore.
Fortunately it was NOT him but Joe, mother’s nice neighbor from across the street that was mowing the grass on the street side of the fence. He had done that for her last year as well. We need to thank him but I have not seen him outside since then.
I am currently sitting on the back porch swatting flies and mosquitoes and with the winds from the south getting a whiff of Walter’s poop from his corral. He disappeared Sunday and did not show up until today. I think his owner took him to some relative’s house.
Heard through the grapevine that his wife is not too happy with the visits from the sheriff and wants him to sell Walter but he pretty much told her that is NOT going to happen. She does not care if he gives him away, sells him or whatever…she just wants him GONE. That explains a lot. I now know why they do not feed him or water him when the husband leaves to go work out of town.
So why am I sitting outside under these conditions? Because only outside will the ISP give me a half decent signal and just as I typed this the darn thing went dormant again!
You have no idea what a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders since the taxes have been completed. Now I can concentrate on other issues like whether or not to go to Houston and my upcoming trip to Terlingua.
Have a great Saturday.
