A few months ago a friend of mine got into debt bailing his son out of jail. Now hes jammed 6 trailers in thin strips next to the road. all When they went daont the road 2 of them fell apart they rebuilt part of them but left a good mess in the road. Im friends with the fella and kinda ribbed him about his mess. Now his tennants have moved into these things and we ve had one high speed pursuit, a drug bust infront of the house. An attempt to steal my garbage can holder but i made it too heavy, a stoned lady ran her car off into the ditch last night. She came to the shop mad because i couldnt even think of pulling her car out in the blind spot. Or let her out on the road, she got irate with me so i Gave the Sheriffs department a ring. My neighbors horse got out somehow he hacksawed the chain off the gate. We found him tied behind on of the trailers.
They have a road to the main highway right by their little place but like to cut off on this road because it means 2 minutes less highway time and now it sounds like a drag strip. What worried me the SHeriff told me they have been after them for 2 years because every where they move to there a high theft rate. Ive tried to be friendly with them but my friendly tank runneth out.
One of the Einstiens is out there today with a tiller trying to figure out ahow to find and tap the underground power for free T hope he suceeds in finding the main line.. I called the power company this morning. But hes still trenching.

reminds me of the story in the paper where a guy lived next to a refinery and needed a little gas he climed to the top and looked in couldn't see so he lit a match.As to the speed way problem get a plow add a few speed bumps we always had trouble with our plow droping in the wrong spot

Bob Im 3/4 redneck and 1/4 Polish and Im not that bad yet lol. I hope the sorry sob finds that power line. The lights havent flickered yet. They ve just moved in this week no water connected or sewer. My neighbor is ticked because i wont put his septic system in because its too low and wouldnt work. My other neighbor thats a deputy caught one last weekend with a few crackrocks. I dont have anything against them as humans but they already seem like they dont care to better them selves. Whe i leave for Thanksgiving tomorrow Ill have my friends doberman staked on the front porch and my german shepard on the back.
Ill tell you how goo the condition of the trailers are they were given to him from the back lot of another trailer park. one had bands wrapped around it to hold the sides on. Im not judging the folks in it but from ast experiences they wont be too nice.

Makes you want to pray for an Urban Renewal Tornado, a selective one that is. Hope your place is safe for the weekend Taylor.
Later Bob

I donít think I could have put up with this as long as you have.
Could be interesting to see if the guy can manage to get to the power lines without killing himself in the process. He may be in for a surprise if he ties into a line that has not gone through a transformer yet. Itíll be a heck of a bang if that happens. I think instead of calling the sheriff I would call Darwin instead and tell them you have one in the works.
