NOpe the hat just got wet. No white stuff.
Yesterday was interesting.
Steph had class so Heath and I were running things here.
The pups name is Gunner. He made an unholy mess in the bathroom, but is pretty good to start whimpering to go out to potty when he is not locked up. He also made an ungodly amount of noise.
The kittens have made an uneasy peace with him.
About 10 a guy showed up and bought the box blade.
Then around 1 I got a call from a guy about a 2000 Chevy Impala. We set up to pick it up later in the afternoon.
At 2 a guy arrived to look at the rims I have had listed for a while. He has a little Nissan pickup he wanted to put them on. I figured it was a 4wd.
Nope. It was a lowered 2wd. While he took a tire off and checked the fit his son had a ball chasing Gunner around the yard. The rims are way to big for his truck. They stick out about 7 inches. He bought them anyway.
Steph got home while he was trying them out.
Then I got a call about a free working fridge. Gunner and I hopped in Christine and headed out.
On the way out I came across a bridge that was out on my shortcut. So I had to backtrack.
Bringing the fridge home was exciting. The wind was trying to turn the truck over. It was a long slow drive home.
Then we waited for the guy with the Impala to call back.
He finally did and gave us an address so we headed out.
We stopped for gas and a woman came running up and asked me to tow her car home. She had a flat - on her spare. So we did. It was about 8 miles. She gave us $20.
Then we went up to Charlotte.
At the address he gave us there was no answer. I went back to the truck to call him and the neighbor came out. There was a bit of confusion that we finally resolved when I finally managed to reach the guy and he said it was the wrong address.
SO we went up the road. The house at the new address looked nothing like he described.
We pulled into a church parking lot and waited for him to call back.
I tried to call him a couple of times and the phone started to go straight to voice mail.
I told Steph we were going to wait 5 more minutes then leave. After 3 minutes the cops arrived.
There have been a lot of church break ins. They talked to us. I wanted to ask how many church robbers bring a tow dolly, but I didn't.
The first cop took my gun. He asked if I had heard of people getting attacked from a CL ad. I said that was why I brought the gun and my brain.
We chatted with them for a while. Then the cop who had taken my pistol and run the numbers did something I have never had one do. He asked if he could put the bullets in the back of the truck. I said OK. And he put them in my toolbox. I had a speed loaded next to me so I didn't care. As soon as they got back in their cars I was reloaded and we headed off.
All I can figure it that he was a competing scrap buyer who was messing with me. Or he had some nefarious plans that got foiled.
At about 11 we got to Steak and Shake and I got my first meal of the day.
We got home at around 12. Steph and Heath went right to bed. Gunner went out to pee.
Last night he made a much smaller mess and much less noise.
