Car Chases Crocheting Field Work Gloves Sandy

A Much Calmer Day 10/30/2012

I made it through the night warm, dry and safe. …..slept like a log even with the wind blowing and whistling outside my window.  My lights never even flickered during the storm.

This morning, this is all the damage I could find…

The top of the light by my front door came off but was on the ground right below…

No big deal.  I never use that light anyway, since I rigged up a motion sensor flood light.    Nothing else broken, the siding is still on the house.  The car is fine.  I consider myself pretty lucky! 🙂  I did find trash and trash cans everywhere on my way to work this morning.  It was pretty much like driving through an obstacle course.

Last night at around 10 there was so much noise that I decided to go out in the back yard and see.  I have a 500-watt floodlight out there.  Well, as you can see, it really wasn’t all that bad…much bark, hardly any bite.

I guess I won’t have any daytime work for a while.  I received an email from one of my clients that I chase for.  He wrote:  “Due to the significant weather event on the east coast, please note the following.  Please suspend field chasing in the following states until reassigned: CT, DC, DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA, RI, MA. ”  Surely all my other clients will follow suit.

I was freezing at work earlier.  My hands were so cold, I could hardly type.  Then I remembered the fingerless gloves that I made.

Ha, all nice and warm now.   Well, back to work.  It’s going to be a long day.

Hope everyone is safe out there.



Bank of America Field Work rat bastard

Surprise From BOA 10/25/2012

My mortgage used to belong to Countrywide. Now it belongs to Bank of America.  I’ve been having issues with them all of this year.  Nothing major, but mostly annoying.

The first issue was getting them to send me a monthly statement.  I finally started receiving statements three months ago.

The second issue was over a charge on my statement that wouldn’t go away even though I paid it twice.  Every month, there it was again.

I called them a week ago to see what in the hell was going on with that charge.  Come to find out that they applied my payment wrong…Rat Bastards!!!

I haven’t gotten a new statement yet to see if it has finally been corrected….but I did get  THIS in the mail yesterday…


This didn’t help my opinion of BOA any, but it will pacify me until the next time they screw up.

This morning I chased a couple of cars in Catlett.  Way out in the sticks.  It was cloudy and misty, but so beautiful a drive.

I stopped by the pet store to pick up some cat food when I got back to civilization.

When I got back home,  I wrote  my report and uploaded my assignments.   Than threw some food in my stomach.  Now…. feed the pussy, clean the litter box and get ready to go to work.   Oops…just noticed a new assignment in my inbox.

Just another non-exciting day around here.
