Back in Texas!

We got back on Halloween. Uneventful trip, thank goodness, spread over two days.

It's dry here. DRY. Dry. I was able to find hay from an irrigated hay farm north of Cordele.

Have had the experience of evicting a renter for the first time, complete with sending a certified letter from the attorney and everything! Yuk. He did move out without complaint, but we've hauled 800 pounds of trash to the landfill.... so far.

I've hired help to do the fixing up, cleaning, painting, etc.

Today, there were supposed to be three folks there working. One on the garage that the renter didn't finish building, one cleaning, and one on general clean up. The general clean up man called to say he was working in the oilfield today, and the house cleaner came by to say she wasn't going to clean due to her eye doctor saying to take it easy for a while longer after her eye surgery. The garage builder worked from 9:00 to 1:30, then got called to his oilfield job.

McCoys Building Supply delivered the materials for two of the four roof replacement jobs. They will start on Wednesday.

A painter who has worked for me before is coming Wednesday to give a bid on repainting the Blue House. It needs painting at least inside, maybe outside, too. We'll have to see how it looks after being power washed.

The good news is that Lonnie and I went to El Campo to have massages, and I went shopping while Mary G. did his massage.

Eating out is sometimes a challenge. Lonnie got choked badly at Travel America on Sunday, so he's cautious about eating at all today. We stopped at Praseks, got a chopped barbecue sandwich and sides, and it was AWFUL. Really bad. He was able to eat a grilled cheese sandwich this evening.

We will see what tomorrow brings!
