They jumped the gun a bit....

We live in a mobile home. We own our mobile home. We pay lot rent for the space our home sits on. Lot rent is due on the first of the month. Monday (July 30th) we walk out of the gate, I'm going to QT and Jerry is putting his tools in the truck before I leave. On the gate is an envelope. Jerry opens the envelope to see what it says on the note. He reads part of it to me and it says that we are late in paying lot rent. Since it is still July we are both thinking that they are talking about July's lot rent. Jerry hands me the note, I'm looking it over, telling Jerry that I have the money order receipts for the rent being paid. We are talking loud enough , which doesn't have to be that loud in a mobile home park, that one of our neighbors from across the street hears us. He says "Look at the date for payment". I look at the date for the month that they say we are delinquent for, and it's for August. They, the management, are telling us that we are late in paying August's lot rent, and it isn't even August yet.

Have I ever mentioned that I'm not to impressed with these managers? They are good people, just not very bright managers.

Oh, yeah, add us to the list of those that are looking for a new home. We are both of the opinion that the new owners are going to eventually close the park and build apartments. If they can get everyone that speaks English as a first language to move, then they won't have to send out the proper notices of closing, that's my thought anyways.

What is it?

The sun is not as bright. There are white fluffy things covering it, and some are black. The wind has picked up, and it is cooler than normal. There's thunder and lightning, I love that! Now there is something else coming out of the sky. It's wet, I think it's water. It is! It's raining! WooHoo!

We finally got some rain today.

Some Self Promotion

I've been doing a lot of editing and adding pages to Pagans Lounge. Go check it out.

There's only a few of us that are members, yet we have written quite a bit. Come add your 2 cents worth, or your own writings at The Written Page. I look forward to seeing what all you've written.

If you like playing D&D but don't want to spend all night at it, come join the action at Kathus. This is Greg's game, he's the Dungeon Master, so the game proceeds only when he can get the time to add to it. Because of this, the game goes very slowly, his school work comes first.

I know you all are curious, so go look these sites over. Join if you want.

Happy 4th of July!!!

As Americans we celebrate this day with parties, grilling, fireworks, and being with friends and family. And we should do this with pride. We fought for our independence with not much more than the will to be independent from all other countries, and monarchies. We fought, and still fight, amongst ourselves to free those that we had enslaved. We fight for the freedom of others.

No matter when or how our families arrived here, someone in the family had to fight for that freedom. This is the day to remember them, to remember what they did to give us the freedoms that we have today. It is a day to celebrate the sacrifices that they gladly gave to see their families live in peace.

My grandfather was a sailor, my father is retired Army, my husband was also in the Army, I was in the Air Force, I have a son that is a Marine, and his brother is a Sea Bee. When my boys come home for a visit they occasionally bring a friend, when they leave we thank them for serving their country, for choosing to keep all of us safe, for being patriotic, for doing a job that isn't easy.

We should all take the time to say thank you to all the men and women that have served, and are serving their country, for sacrificing their lives and time away from their families, for doing that which many cannot do, for keeping our freedoms intact. If you know a veteran or an active duty military person, tell them thank you. If you don't, or would like to send a card to someone who is in the military now to say thank you, go to this site: Let's Say Thanks. The art for the cards is done by children, and there are several to choose from, there are several messages to choose from, or you can write your own.

We may not like the fact that we have military fighting any where, yet there is fighting and we are there in it. The men and women that are now in the military have chosen to serve their country and we should support their choice.
