After the adventures with that stupid fever, Bert’s promiscuity and Old Faithful I figured that the worst was over. WRONG!!
First I discover that my insane neighbor (Crazy Lady) has NOT been watering the patch of sodded yard that we ‘donated’ to her. Thank God that I dragged my sorry butt out there twice a day bacause she did squat!! She had thanked us over and over for getting rid of that eyesore and asked us how much she owed. It’s 7/8ths her property so we told her No Charge but YOU have to take care of it! I wrote up a schedule for here and figured she was following it since the sod was at a critical stage. I watered it once a day and figured she was taking care of the rest. WRONG!!! She told me today that ‘personally’ she hadn’t watered once but that maybe her Hillbilly son (who still lives at home at 43 years old) might have. OoooKay!!!!!
Also on Saturday I hired her gardeners because they seem to do an excellent job. Plus, they speak English. Well, the don’t UNDERSTAND English but they know how to nod and say OK! So I ‘splained to them that it was a newly sodded lawn and I wanted them to start mowing in two weeks! They both nodded and said ‘OK’. I went back into the house and within 5 minutes I hear Mrs S screaming ‘They’re Mowing Your Lawn!!!!’. I hobble out and they have already mowed the ‘parkway’ (between the sidewalk and the street) and are ready to wreak havoc on the main lawn. I stop them and explain to then AGAIN that they will start mowing in TWO (2) (II) (DOS) weeks!!! They apologized, cleaned up the clippings and slinked away under my steadfast gaze!! But it seems that no damage was done and I’ll give that part of the lawn extra water this week. (It does look good mowed!)
Had another fever attack tonight but it was MUCH lower (99.6) and only lasted a half hour.
And now the topper to my excellent weekend. I pick up my glasses and something isn’t right! I can see OK but they seem uncomfortable. So I take them off and notice that one of the rubber things that go behind my ears is missing!! Oh no!! Must find before Bonnie does!!!! So the search is on! I grab my tools: flashlight, probe (backscratcher), and treats to distract Bonnie.
I searched every room four times while listening to Mrs S telling me that I should have bought new ones MONTHS ago!! (thanks for that!) Checked outside, inside, upsidedown side, under the bed in the bed and nothing!! I even checked Bonnie’s mouth!! *sigh* So I sat down, exhausted, and reached back to scratched behind my ear…………… *crickets chirping*…….. You guessed it!! I’m such a tool!!!!!
But this debacle of a weekend is over so I get to start over!! Right? RIGHT?????
Oh!! The ONE good thing was that got a tiny bit of rain from Dean!!
