Two more days to Arrest Day.
I’ve got a bottle of champagne ready and I'm already wearing my thoughts and hopes.
Other than waiting to see if you know who will be booked, fingerprinted and have to submit to a booking photo, not a lot going on as it’s been pretty tame around here lately.
Except for that glimpse when he first moved in, and then one day when he was walking down the quad to the mail box, I haven’t seen the new resident of the bad energy unit. He seems to be busy elsewhere — still holding down a job probably, and does not spend much time in his unit. Which is probably a good thing considering the history of that unit.
Red Light has done no more venting on Facebook, but that may be because she’s working on getting herself a new best friend — the resident that told me I might as well turn around as last Tuesday’s event was cancelled (let’s call her Homegirl, for reasons you can probably guess).
I’ve had a few friendly encounters with Homegirl, as she’s been showing up regularly to events, but have not yet got all up in her business — asking how long she’s been here … is she new … where was she before … yada yada yada?
I did notice however, at last weeks bingo, Red Light appeared to be courting favor with Homegirl — probably hoping to fill the hole left by Talker dumping her as Red Light’s best bud, but Homegirl doesn’t look like the type that wants or needs a close friendship in the complex.
We’ll see how that goes.
Our Karen character is no longer blog fodder as she long ago gave up complaining in her quest to run Talker out of her unit.
Talker is showing no signs of following through on her plans to move out for non-Karen reasons. Last year, she did say she was thinking about moving in with her daughter this year, to help out with the kids, but shows no sign of leaving any time soon.
Talker’s granddaughter — which it turns out is her great granddaughter, has ceased knocking on my door.
A good thing.
However, I did on Wednesday have a nightmare that, after returning from a long drive with the relative I’ve been worried about — a long drive that had me lost and struggling to find my way through unfamiliar roads, I finally found my way back to the complex, had barely walked into my unit and closed the door when I heard a knock.
It was she — the little stalker.
It’s not bad enough that I’m tossing and turning worrying about relatives to the point I’ve acquired worry lines under my eyes and feel like I’ve aged ten years in the last few weeks, all I need is for Talker’s great granddaughter to haunt my dreams as well.
Speaking of relatives, during a break in the rain a few days ago, I got laundry out of the way and while in the Laundry Room, I opened the door of a front facing washer and coins flew out — pennies and a nickel.
I shared this as a comment to another blogger's post, but don't recall sharing on this blog before, that my sister told granddaughter, when she passed away, she would leave quarters around to let us know she was here in some manner or form.
Sure enough, since sister passed, I’ve had bright shiny new quarters suddenly appear along my path and in unusual places — most recently, in the Pain Cave underneath the equipment I was working on.
In fact, quarters so often appear in the Pain Cave that when spotted by Trainer, he’ll point it out and say, "Your sister is here".
Once, when it was a lesser coin, Trainer asked, "Is this someone you know?" Lol.
Seeing all these coins pop out of the washing machine, as I opened the door, one could assume the previous user had coins in the pocket of something they washed, missed seeing the coins when they removed the wet wash, so I didn’t give it much thought. However, when I later opened a dryer and a quarter popped out, I figured sister was letting me know she was visiting and had brought various ancestors with her — maybe my brothers, but who knows.
At any rate, I didn’t know who the others were so, when done in the Laundry Room, I took sister with me, left the others.
Arrest Day is also Pizza Tuesday, and the Activity Calendar shows Activity Director hosting another event, or attempting to host — dependent on management giving her the money budgeted for supplies this time ... "Start Your Own Healthy Garden! Learn about healthy herbs and start your own garden! Seeds and planters will be provided."
That’s something that really interests me so, come rain or shine, I’ll go down to the Community Room, see if it's two times in a row not happening, or a class attached, or a complete bait and switch.
That's very interesting about your sister and the quarters! And let's hope that Tuesday does indeed bring a Perp Walk and a Mugshot!ReplyDelete
Wish sis could find a way to communicate which lottery numbers are set to win, rather than quarters. "Perp Walk and Mugshot" ... you worded it much better than I, LOL.Delete
If arrested does it mean he can't run for office again? I just want that orange Fer to be behind bars. Not in a soft jail. A jail where he will be bubba's bitch!ReplyDelete
There is a theory being floated that an arrest would prohibit him from running and may be the main motivation for an arrest, should it happen. As for Bubba, he can drop the soap all he wants in trying to tempt Bubba, but Bubba wouldn't want to touch that any more than Melania does.Delete
I'm curious to see what happens Tuesday. I have so little faith that justice will be served. I wish my sister had promised to leave quarters around for me. I would love that magic. I hope Activity Director comes through this time. The even actually sounds like fun.ReplyDelete
I hear you about having little faith in justice. I'm doubting it will happen, but it's fun to think it might. As for the magic ... leaving the pain cave once, there was a bright shiny new quarter right by my driver side door that was not there when I first got out of the car. The cave seems to be sister's favorite place to communicate with me these days.Delete
I'm not sure the arrest will happen; I think Thing 45 is sung the news, which, remember, he spilled, to raise money and attention. His crowds are dwindling and he needs a draw.ReplyDelete
But I AM hoping that an arrest is in his future.
It's tough to believe that, with all the criminality he's done, the thing that might possibly put him behind bars is where he got the money to pay Stormy Daniels. It's also tough to believe that he still has crowds, dwindling though they may be.Delete
I also have little faith 45 will be held accountable for anything. Yet, I can hope. I think the idea of your sister letting you know she's with you by leaving quarters is wonderful!ReplyDelete
I've heard of others being visited in the form of butterflies, birds, rainbows. I got quarters. Go figure.Delete
Quarters being left sounds like a casino angel! I'm hoping they arrest the orange blob on another day just to prove him wrong and mess up his potential protest plans. I'm sick of him though. Hope things improve after your long drive to help relatives. Linda in KansasReplyDelete
I don't think sister has ever seen the inside of a casino or gone to Vegas. If his base is stupid enough to protest, I hope this time they're treated with the same ferocity met by Black Lives Matter protestors.Delete
Well, it's almost 5pm Eastern time and nothing happened today. Maybe tomorrow.ReplyDelete
I like the quarter idea. I think I'll tell my granddaughter about quarters I'm going to leave for her. 😊
ROFLMAO. It's a good thing I didn't hold my breath for the perp walk. Make a grand gesture for your granddaughter, make it a Kennedy Silver Dollar.Delete
