So glad we don't have ticks here. Whew!
Yard kid news: He's been over 4 times since he failed to finish my neighbor's job. She paid him in advance again despite my warnings. Now she's mad mad mad and avoiding him. Serves him right for once. But now he's been over to 'borrow' a bottle of water, 'borrow' my phone, and today he needed me to make 2 copies of his 'sister in law's' paystub for someone to get help with the electric bill. Have no idea what he's up to but that has no validity the way he explained it. Ugh.
And in empty house news: The snake and son came over to change a burned out light bulb outside over the garage/car area and spent an entire hour doing it. Yup. We watched as the duo tried to use a 'pole' to reach up 15 feet to unscrew it and then replace it. They ended up taping several poles together, etc. Finally got it done. An hour????? How many con men does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Off to watch news of the horrible Boston Marathon tragedy.
