Nothing much has been going on around here except that momma has been taking all her decorative plates off the kitchen wall and packing them up. We now have packed shipping boxes stacked in various areas of the house.
And speaking of New Mexico, daddy discovered there isn't a problem with mosquitoes on our property instead he is being eaten alive by swarms of gnats that have sampled his flesh and now he is covered with welts and discoloration from all the bites. He was told this is only an issue during June because once the monsoon season starts at the end of June the gnats will be gone.
The first inspection of the new house was done on the plumbing and got signed off even though the plumber wasn’t there and the plumbing wasn’t complete. The plumber had to go to town because he didn’t buy enough parts so one part of the plumbing wasn’t finished but the inspector knew the plumber and signed off on the inspection. Having to go to town to get a part was a very expensive mistake for the plumber because he had to travel one hour to town and another back to our property.
Today workers came out to do the rebar and brought truck loads of sand to put on top of the rebar. They will be back on Tuesday to compact the sand and then they will start pouring the concrete for the two pads (I don’t know why they aren’t coming back on Monday). Once the garage/workshop is built and daddy has a place to store his tools and stuff then he will come back home on the train stay for a week and then rent a U-haul and take the first load of stuff back to New Mexico. He told momma it would be so nice to sleep on a real bed again. Momma didn’t tell him about the “Puffy” incident on the big bed – BOL.
My bunny sister Arleenton go a new indoor cage and momma has it on the floor by the sliding glass door so I have been going over there and barking at her. Momma says I’m not supposed to be doing that but I’m so excited that I just can’t help myself. I’m not being mean, just asking her if she wants to come out and play tag with me, what’s wrong with being friendly?
Anyhoodle, that’s it from me.
Hugs and kisses,
...gnats, fires, varmints... An HOUR to town??! Coco, are you sure you want to do this???
Just kidding, it's going to be exciting to get out of the city and start ovfur in the real world!! I bet you'll be glad to see your daddy, even with all his spots!!
Coco, my Mom says chickies LOVE black flies. There are none down there so maybe they will eat your gnats?
My Mom remembers gnats - yuck! An hour to town is a long way, but you will be happy. This is an exciting adventure for you!
I moved to the country in 1995, and the city followed me here. I guess some of us just can't get away.LOL
