GOOD OLE COUNTRY SONG: “IF YOU DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING, YOU’LL FALL FOR ANYTHING!”
What a day this has been! For the second time this holiday season a dog pee’d on the Sunday paper! Neighbors are burning trash across the street and it’s blowing down our neighborhood! People are driving like maniacs!
Do I sit down and take several deep breaths and then meditate for a while and confirm that everything happens for a reason and the people doing the burning probably have tragedies in their lives and so just let them do whatever they want to and forgive them.
Most of the time that’s me! BUT NOT TODAY!!!!
I called the paper and reminded them that our “paper box” was bought and put up to have the carrier put the paper in it EVERY day, not just the days they think to do it or have a substitute filling in for them. The paper people were nice about it and promised that they had “put a note in the paper carrier’s box” as a received complaint and that they should put the paper in the proper place from now on. Thanks be to the paper people.
NOTE: The same thing happened about a year ago…………guess it will require constant reminders!
Open burning supposedly requires a permit from the county……………with the dry weather/season we’ve had I wonder that anyone would want to burn trash at all and especially on a Sunday afternoon! Thoughtless to say the least!
The local fire department will pay them a visit to see if they have a permit to burn on a Sunday……and check to see if they are alright!
ALRIGHT I’ve now stood up for something!!! Go boy go! I may have my house burned down tonight and my mailbox ripped from the ground (Steel pole bedded in concrete…….gonna be hard to do! HA!) BUT I feel better! Just remember:
“IF YOU DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING, YOU’LL FALL FOR ANYTHING!”
