The technician called us back and said he couldn’t come until Monday because he was too busy. What? Monday! This will never do and was quickly becoming a frustrating situation. He gave us the name of another repairman he knew, so we called him.
As it turned out the second guy never showed up, claiming he tried to call us, but our phone never rang. We were here all day waiting for him too, so Tootie missed her vet appointment to get her eye checked today. This is a whole other story about what has been going on here for the last month or so. I’ll fill you in on the next post.
We are giving the repairman the benefit of a doubt, thinking maybe he wrote down the wrong number, but this is quite typical behavior for where I live. We’ve had to wait on people all day only to have them not show up or bother to call us. I won’t miss this when we move.
Now Tootie won’t make her vet appointment tomorrow either because we’ll be waiting for this man again. We have no time as to when he’ll be here. I probably won’t take her in now until next week. I think her eye is on the mend anyway. It would just be nice to have the vet confirm it.
I hope that this will be a simple fix and we won’t need a new fridge.
On another note, today is my mother’s birthday, Mayday. Everyone’s going out for Mexican food. That’s no surprise. Mexican is the one thing they can all agree on to eat. I wish I were there too, but maybe next year. I hope one of my sisters will take pictures to send to me, and to my little sister in
Raven’s now six months old and getting to be quite a handsome boy. We had company today, our Aussie friends, and he was all over them, purring and playing and being a social butterfly. This is my handsome little man.

The resident lizard is still making herself at home in the fireplace. She must have been out on the town last night because she wasn’t in there. Hee-hee. I don’t know if she had a hot date or not. I determined this was a female lizard because she doesn’t have the colorful underbelly the males do. The cats enjoy watching her through the screen.

It’s windy here in the desert again today. This makes day number three of wind gusts up to 40 mph. Big earth movers are stirring up the dust preparing the ground for the new house going in two lots down from us. I kept the windows closed, which I hate to do, being there are so few days in the year we can open them. The building crew is keeping long hours over there having run into the underground stream we told them was there. They’ve had to change their plans so the house doesn’t start to sink and crack later. A guy has owned that lot for twenty years and finally decided to move down here and build a house on it. I guess we’ll hear the noise from all the construction soon. The cats love all the action that’s taking place.
