I Never Was Good At Math!
I don't claim to be a smart woman and I'm certainly not a rich one but two and two is not making four to me. We went to the ranch at 7:30 A.M. this morning. We were working all around the house but we didn't see hide nor hair of the renters . We did see one bunny rabbit scavaging for food. Five window unit air condioners running at full speed in the rent house. We got home at about ten A.M. and soon the phone rang. It was one of the renter girls wanting to borrow $30.00. They are going to drive fifteen or so miles from the ranch to our town to borrow $30.00 so they can drive back to our town tomorrow to pick up their check so they can pay the rent and the utility bill. Check? What check, five grown people and they don't work? Recently John has started hauling off their trash. Nice landlord, huh? When we lived out there I collected aluminum off the side of the highway, burned the paper (not on a windy day), and hauled the other to the garbage at a residence he owned in town. Good exercise for me and would be good exercise for them. Think I'm mean? I guess I am since I'm in my 70's and the parents in the rent house are in their late 40's. Sunday they drove about thirty miles to buy five ducks for $5.00 a piece. What is it about this picture I don't undertand?
