I HATE TO SAY IT BUT--- TIME HAS COME TO GET AN NEW NAIL-- YOU KNOW THOSE SPIKE THINGS WHICH SIT ON YOUR DESK ONTO WHICH YOU SLAM SMALL BITS OF PAPER-- CALLED RECIEPTS--- SO FAR THIS YEAR I HAVE FILLED 5 INCNES OF COMPRESSED PAPER*** TWICE*** JUST TO KEEP THE ACCOUNTANT PROCESS WORKING PROPERLY. I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT THE SUCCESS OF SDP ACCOUNTING REPORT IS BASED ON THAT ARTIFICIALLY SUPPORTED PILE OF PAPERS... OR WHY-- WITH ALL THE THINGS THAT NEED DOING... WHY I/WE SHOULD HAVE TO PAY ANYONE TO DECIPHER THAT PILE OF #$%^&*&^%$ IS BEYOND ME.-- OR WHY I SHOULD CHANGE THE P[ILE TO BE ALPHABETICAL IS TOTALLY BEYOND MY ABILITIES... AS IT IS , IT IS NEARLY CRONOLOGICAL AN THAT WILL HAVE TO DO.
IT MIGHT TAKE ME A FEW MINUTES TO FIND A SPECIFIC RECIOPPT-- BUT IT WILL BE THERE--- SOMEWHERE.
THE TIME TO FIND A PIECE OF PAPER BECAME PROBLEMAtic yesterday
for the first time in my life, i was stopped for driving too slow--- i was driving over 60 mph ( which is over the speed limit) but i was in the outside lane-- which i am now told is not to be done even if you are over teh speed limit. you must be going faster than oaLL TH EOTHER SPEEDERS TO UUSE TEH "FAR" LANE-- OK... I SUPPOSE THAT IS LOGICAL SOMEHOW -- SO....
MASSIVE BLUE LIGHTS AND I SLOWLY PULL OVER THE OTHER 3 LANS AND REALLY OFF THE ROAD ONT O THE GRASS SO THE POLICEMAN CAN GET OUT OF HIS CAR .. BY THEN JUDY HAD PULLED TEH REG-- WHICH WAS THERE-- I JUST HAD THE INSPECTION DONE-- SO I KNEW.. AND HAD IT READY TO HAND TO THE MAN--- WHO TOOK IT AN SAID "LICENSE?" ( THIS IS WHERE IT GETS TRICKY)
I HESITATED ONE SPLIT SECOND THINKING HE CAN NOT POSSIBLEY SUSPECT I AM REACHING FOR A GUN IN MY BACK POCKET-- SO I SAID "HANG ON , IT IS IN MY BACK P[OCKET " AND I REACHED AND GOT MY LITTLE WALLET THING OUT IN PROBABLY LESS THAN 5 SECONDS. HE SHOVED THE REG IN FRONT OF ME AND SAID "IS THIS YOU?" I SAID YES-- AND HE DISAPPEAED- COMING BACK IN A RELATIVELY SHOR TIME-- SHOVED THE REG AND A CRUMPLED PAPER IN THE WINDOW-- NOT EVEN IN MY OUTSTRETCHED HAND AND SAID "PAY THIS IN 20 DAYS" WITH JUDY IN THE PASSENGER SEAT ASKING "WHAT'S IT FOOOOORRRRR? " AND HE WAS GONE. BOTH OF US SAID TEH SAME WORDS "WELL THAT WAS RUDE"
TURNS OUT-- I WAS CITED FOR TRAVELING IN THE PASSING LANE WITOUT PASSING ANYONE $105 - WELL I CERTAINY WAS--- BUT I WAS ALSO CITED FOR NOT HAVING MY LICENSE IN TEH CAR-- WHICH WAS WRONG...- HE DID NOT GIVE ME TIME TO PRODUCE IT... NOW BEFORE ANYONE THINKS I CARRY A POCKET BOOK FULL OF STUFF And it would take me 1/2 hour to find anything... i carry only a coin pruse in my opocket which contains 1/3 if an inch of cards license aaa medicare visa and costco...-- could not be "too long to produce..." he cited me for not having it.
sooooo judy took a picture of it on the citation and sent it to my email so it would have a time stamp-- as we continued to say "why didn't his mother teach him better manners than that.?"
i am happy to p[ay teh $145 for the privlidge of asking his superior why he was so rude..
proving once again don't mess with little old ladies who just might have enough time on their hands to call attention to details.
i don't know if i detected ? the fact that he was upset that i was the owner of the vehicle- as i haD TEH BRAND NEW PLOW ON THE FRONT WHICH I HAD NOT YET FIGURED OUT HOW TO REMOVE AND APPROACHING FROM BEHIND HE MIGHT NOT HAVE SEEN WHO WAS DRIVEING
THE BARRACKS IS JUST DOWN THE ROAD... I MAY GET A CHANCE TO DROP BY FOR A CHAT...
I DO ENJOY THE LITTLE OLD LADY ROLE.
I AM TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER AWEEKLY LIST OF DEFINITE VOULUNTEERS-- SO IF YOU COME EHRE EVERY TUESDAY AFTERNOON 3 TO 7... OR SOME SUCH.. WOULD YOU PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL AND SEE IF AI CAN REDUCE TEH EFFORT OF KEEPING OUR SCHEDULE-- AND INSTEAD LF LISTING CHORES, THERE SHOULD BE SOME STAFF OERSON IN CHARGE OF EACH AREA OF THE FARM--IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT, CHECK WITH THEM..( THE PURPLE SHIRTERS....)---
Good Afternoon Carlene,
Just wanted to let you know that Mo's bloodwork came back within normal limits.
Please do not hesitate to call the office with any questions or concerns.
I was at the main post office yesterday. The SDP calendar was hanging there. The shot of the Danes in the voting booth was perfect for the day especially sense I was on my way to vote myself. Thank you for the smile 😊
