As I mentioned in my last post we had a three-minute shower in the early morning hours. Even though I had worked hard out in the yard it did not translate into a good night's rest. I did not get up early to water the trees figured at least they got some liquid gold and could hold out for a couple more hours.
It was about 9:30 a.m. when I started to water them. I happened to look toward the south where I cleared a pathway to the curve when I noticed there was a black truck deep inside Mom's property...WTH?
Headed that way and saw that no one was inside the truck. Did someone abandon it there? All of a sudden a short man in a mask walks towards me from the back of the house. It wasn't until I heard him speak that I recognized who it was. It was Pollito's wino sidekick. While he had a mask on he was wearing it wrong not covering his nose. Fortunately, he kept his distance and I backed up even more.
I was FURIOUS!!! It took an incredible amount of self-restraint to keep my cool. I have a chain and two locks on the front gate to keep people out what more does it take? Apparently, he bypassed it and instead made use of the path I spent hours sweating like a pig to clear.
He said he saw me out in the yard so he came to see if I wanted to have the mesquite trees cut (the baby mesquites) and the yard clippings bagged. I told him the same thing I told Pollito the other day that I did not have any money so I had been doing it myself. That is not true...I just DO NOT want to hire them. I have had enough of these incompetent clowns....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!
He told me he had all his tools with him and I could pay him whenever...I told him that that was not the way I conducted business. I said that I still had his telephone number and would give him a call if I needed his services.
I also threw in that the last time he came over which I believe was in December 2019...I told him I wanted the trees cut...at the time he had also seen me raking leaves and he wanted to bag them. I can do that myself. He told me he would be back when he had time...so August 1st...eight months later he comes back? Pollito has certainly trained him well!
Last week I got an e-mail from HEB letting me know that our prescriptions were ready to be picked up. That can not be right we still have medication. When I was with my previous doctor I told them I did not want to have my prescriptions auto-filled but now with my new doctor the pharmacy once again signed me up?
Today I received another e-mail saying I had 3 days to pick them up or they would put them back in stock. I am NOT going out during the weekend especially not to big HEB...they will have to wait until Monday or whenever I feel like picking them up.
I hope your August 1st went a lot better than mine. Aunty Acid Saying of the Day certainly applied to my situation this morning.
We had a low of 78 a high of 103 with a heat index of 107 degrees.
Good night. May you have Terlingua Dreams.
