Hello Everyone. Well is 2019, I did not make one single New Year resolution, why bother, I just fail miserable to keep them. So instead I will continue on trying to be a better person, in health, in society, to my neighbors, to my family and just keep, keeping on!
I am happy that the sun is staying up longer in the days. Sunsets are already past 5:38pm here for us. Seems like it was getting dark before 5p just yesterday. The sun is giving us warmth. That’s all good!
I am doing well on my weight journey. I am getting back into a good rhythm since the holidays snuck in and teased me with all the wonderful food goodies they bring. Some I ate, some I passed on. So all in all just pretty much stayed right around the same area, gain 5#’s, loose the same 5#’s, gain them again, loose them again. But seems the scale has started to drop, yay. Glad the holidays are behind us and on to the next season please! Spring, just around the corner !
Yesterday I had a scare, we were playing cards when 5 full grown bull dogs, I think they were part pit, but anyway, I went out on the deck and yelled for them to get out of the yard and to go home, well 2 took off away from the house, the other 3 made a mad dash up on the steps to the deck and were growling and biting at the metal gate trying to get it. If I had some kind of weapon I would of shot them! I was scared, I won’t lie, I backed up and into the house stood there for a minute and then got mad, how dare those dogs chase me on my property. I went out and grabbed a small4′ ladder and started slamming in on the deck, 2 off them turned around to come back, but thought better of it. I would of beat them to death over the fence. Well to make a long story short, the Sheriffs would do nothing, police the same, I kept getting redirected to the county humane. So I left word with them, I followed up today and they still hadn’t dispatched my call to anyone, nice! So we went driving around the neighborhood to find these animals, we not only found them, we found a man that had just had 2 of them on his deck today and he got pictures. He went to the human society to turn in a report and they would have to call him when they have time to take it. In the meantime he pointed out the house with the animals, so we just got back from going down to try to talk to him, a young man, in his 20’s with an attitude !! Couldn’t have been his dogs no way no how, I was wrong and why wouldn’t I try to pet them and make nice, his “children” would never bite anyone. I told him I was sorry I didn’t have my phone with me at that moment, I never thought in a million years they would charge me, nor did I have time to run get it, duh! Since I had no proof we needed to get off his property, otherwise he could shoot me since I was threating his children! I told Peter lets go so here we are. I will not get a gun, but I will carry a bat around outside with me. I know for certain that they would of ripped me to shreds. Well that felt good to get it out, and now its on paper so I just have to cut, copy and paste so I can give it to the humane society. I am so sorry that this young man couldn’t see reason, all we wanted was him to agree to check his fence line. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. LOL Man I hate to fight with anyone over anything. But the motion camera is on and looking at the yard ready to catch any creature large or small that comes onto our property. UPDATE The mans home we went to, well his wife came to find out just what happened. We explained everything to her and told her that we only were curious about the dogs, but he got so defensive and wouldn’t really speak with us, well to come find out, they have mad multiple complaints about there dogs. She showed me pictures of her 4 dogs and it couldn’t be them. 2 of them were the wrong color and the markings on the one of the white ones was totally wrong. We told her that’s all we wanted to know but his demeanor was not helping. So she did give us some great advise on what to do with aggressive pit/bull dogs so we will go get some maze and a baseball bat and have them with us outside. She thinks she knows where the dogs live that we were dealing with and advised us not to go knocking on there door! I am not going to anyone’s house ever again. There is something to be said about being “loners” !! At least I can sleep tonight and feel bad about trying to do the right thing!!
