Rant away
Know what I hate? Empty forums. So here is a post for this new forum.

Dang mud after a drought. Cut a swale across the edge of the field up from my woodpile. It is intended to catch the snowmelt and cut down on the ice patch at the end of my barn. That powdery dry dirt turned to mush when I drove the backhoe across it this morning. The good news is the rain did not wash it down to the barn!:smile:

Re: Rant away
Digging some holes with my backhoe at the animal shelter for a sign and some gates. First post went fine but the second one I chopped a phone line before I was even down 2 ft. Phone guy came out and said it is an unused line. Refused to locate the main line without a UFPO and a 3 day wait. They had just marked it for the town to do a new culvert pipe and they missed by a bunch. Town chopped it right in half. So now I have to wait til next week to finish a simple job. Damn line I hit goes right under some trees that are at least 30 ft. tall. I had already took one out and cut it up with the chain saw and dug out the stump and moved it out of the way.

Re: Rant away
Phone co. says 7am Wednesday they will be out to mark it. Now if everybody else gives a clear we should be done before lunch Wednesday.:clap:

What I hate are those darn Santa Anna winds. They are supposed to start blowing this evening with gusts up to 74 miles an hour. That will take down power lines and we'll have the mother of all fires going by morning. Not only that but it really kicks up my allergies which I really don't need right now because I also have a cold.

Can you stand to wear a mask? We are having snow squalls and 35 mph winds today. Dang lake effect squalls make a mess out of a day and all but impossible to work outside.

I don't like them. I just stay indoors. Doctor does not want me outside in high winds. Asthma.

Yuk! Leni, I'm sorry you have to be cooped up inside like that.

Different rant: I run to Walmart, yesterday, to pick up a few items. An elderly lady with a walker and a younger lady were ahead of me. There was a display of poinsettia plants between the "In" and "Out" doors. They stopped, not once, but twice to look at the plants. Not even an attempt to move aside to allow people behind them to get by.

I had to think that the older lady probably gave her kids heck if they were in the way of other shoppers, back when they were young, now, she's doing it.

I think everybody thinks that they're the only shoppers in the whole store! Makes me wanna build my own shopping care with a 20 hp engine and 3/8" plate on the front and just go where I wanna go! :hide:

Re: Rant away
When I was at TJ's a couple of weeks ago. An old woman gave a younger one hell for having her shopping cart in front of the bread. She approached all of us from behind coming from the next aisle. None of us saw her. I was amazed at how nasty she was. As the younger woman said 'all you have to do is ask and I'll move it. Courtesy works both ways. I know what you mean though. It happens all the time in stores these days.

Those winds are still blowing. So far we haven't had any bad fires. We did have a few yesterday. I'm finally over my cold thank goodness.

Re: Rant away
Well it poured Monday and the winds are back again. Not as bad thank God.

Re: Rant away
ug, some crazy weather on the west cost. We were forecast to have temps in the 40's but dang if we didn't get snow anyways. Just in the air. It never stuck to anything much at all. Kinda pretty in the air, so no probs. I do suspect our friends up north had it stick and cause them some issues.

Re: Rant away
On 12-1 I ordered a holder for stuffed bell peppers from Chefs Catalog. According to the tracking number it was shipped the next day. I checked again today and it is in Reseda on the 7th. That's only a few miles from me. I could have walked over there and back by now. Grrrrr! Now I have to call and see what the heck is going on.

You know, I really really hate a thief.

Re: Rant away
No idea what happened to the first one but Chefs sent me another one. FedEx delivered it a few days later. The man asked if I was Leni twice to be sure that he was hand delivering it to the right person. I suspect that someone else received a stuffed bell pepper pan for Christmas. Either that or the package fell behind something and will be found eons from now.
