Welcome to a new Blest Sunday. We thought we saw da sun come out fur a minute, but it was just some workers’ flashlights. Da “landscapers” lawn crew was here this past week buildin’ up a hill ‘tween our pawrtment and mr. W’s. Guess me needs to ‘splain a bit fur those of ya’ dat be new to our bloggy. We live in these ‘pawrtments dat be much like a horseshoe shape. Mr. W lives on da end of a buildin’ next to da road. We live in da buildin’ right behind it dat faces in towards our pawrkin’ lot. Bedrooms are at da back of da ‘pawrtment and livin’ rooms at da front. Hims bedroom is almost our livin’ room window view. Not somethin’ we wanna see. Dat’s da only good thing ‘bout those big ole oak trees in our yard. Cuz No, he doesn’t have curtains and Yes, he leaves da blinds up all da time.
Anyways, fur whatever reason, there was a drop off behind hims ‘pawrtment. It was purretty steep, but it’s not like any of us are really out there walkin’ it. Altho’ Mr. W has been known to wheel hims wheelchair ‘round there on da occasions when Buddy escapes. So anyways, ‘member when we said da manager had come down one meownin’ wantin’ mommy to move her car? Well dat’s why. Da lawn crew was gonna be doin’ some work and to purrtect our cars, she wanted us to move them. Altho’ not sure where she wanted us to move them cuz they had trucks, dirt and equipment all over da place. Well, dat was da day dat mommy had to go to da doctor so mommy did move our car fur a few hours at least. Mommy furinally said, well they have to have insurance, so we’ll just have to take our chances. And then she watched them like a hawk.
Now, fur all of ya’ wonderin’ why it’s such a big deal, let me tell ya’. This very same lawn crew breaks at least 3 ‘pawrtment air conditioners every summer. Dat’s basically one a month. “course dat’s not countin’ da ones dat they just chew up da wirin’ on with da weed whacker by runnin’ it up da side of da walls. And no, there ain’t no weeds up da wall. They’re just idiots. Anyways, they ran over da 6 foot steel post dat marked da sprinkler system, and broke it and caused a huge flood. We haven’t had a sprinkler system out here in over 10 years cuz of them. Once da flood was stopped, da big steel post was replaced and a circle of bricks ’round it. And yep, they ran over it again. They chopped down several ornamental bushes and left da weeds. And many more things. Don’t ask. We don’t know why they’re still da lawn crew fur our purropurrty and several others managed by the same management company. Anyways, they built up this hill and tamped down lots of new dirt and left. Mommy looked out and said, “Lovely, just wait till it rains.” And then…well as you know it’s been rainin’ ever since. MOL
And yes, we have new mud every where now. And dat’s why there were workers with flashlights walkin’ ‘round makin’ us think da sun was tryin’ to peek out from da clouds.Even amidst all of this, we’ve been blest. Me hasn’t run or hid from da thunder boomers once. And Raena’s eye got all better. Da lawn crew didn’t even touch our car. We have a home to be safe from da weather, includin’ da earthquake we had last weekend. And most of all we have each other and all of you. We are Blest!!! ‘Member to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur da blessings in your lives. We’s joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. And be sure and stop by tomorrow, we’ve got some great trainin’ tips comin’ up in our weekly Service Cats posty.
