Direction Challenged

Yes thats me but nothing like the family who gave us directions today. John needed someone to install a new hot water heater in one of his rent properties. Eyeryone has more work then they can handle right now so I suggested the son of one of his long time renters. He has done odd jobs for John before but its hard to keep up with where he and his family live and their phone number. So we went to his mama. Mama Mary always knows where her kids and grandkids are and if she don't she will find out. We found out you can't always depend on her directions though. She said next town over, turn at Pico's and the house is a little white house on the right side. Okay John's mother lived on that street at one time. We can find it. Wrong! We drove up and down but no little white house on the right side of the street and not on the left either for that matter. So we go back to mama Mary's house and this time she gives us a phone number. When John calls Joe and tells him he wants to come over to talk about this little job he needs help with. Joe's directions were turn at Pico's to the driver's side. Okay guess that means to the left? Drive several blocks down and turn on Popular street to the passenger side. Okay guess that would be to the right. He says I'll be in the yard mowing, you'll see me. When we drive up he has his wife stationed at the end of the drive-way flagging us. Is the house little and white? No it is normal size and light yellow.

Is that normal Texas directions? LOL As long as it works. I don't know how many times I have been given directions and I am sure I have it, but I don't.
'Tis good you found it. Good thing Mama keeps up with her kids.
Love it. I have never heard passenger side and drivers side directions. that is great.

Jack & Sherry

People should not paint their houses. Otherwise how do they expect us to find them. :)
