It’s a Mistake……It’s A Mistake.


Well, my Bobcat guy has not made his presence known today—yet. I actually flagged down a worker on a huge D9 dozer, and he said he would get back to me. I guess that is not going to play out. My next move is to rent a Bobcat next Monday, and move the piles to my yard.

So, what I basically thought was a deal, has now turned into a nightmare. I have to spend more money than what is is worth just to move it into piles on my property. Live and learn. The weekend is definitely starting out to be very nice indeed. Hopefully, my guy shows up later today, but I am not holding my breath. We will see what happens in the next few hours. Good luck to all.

So, I get 8 loads of clay delivered today to various houses. The guy tells me he is done, and I pass by the first house to check it out. Low and behold, the clay is not in my yard, but in a neighbor’s freshly manicured lot.


Within a few minutes of me arriving, I was inundated with a ton of questions about when is it going to be moved, why is it in their lot, and etc. etc. Well, as I am trying to placate this situation by telling her that I am going to move it and get things right for her, it started to downpour. Needless to say, the clay turned into a mess when my brother in-law tried to move it and just pile it up on my side. The ruts were, and are, intense. We just decided to give it another go tomorrow, but now, I will probably have to grade her lot and lay sand to clean it up a bit.

It seems that this house is whipping me to no end. First, the tenants did not pay and would not leave. Then, I have to rebuild the whole thing because they were total rags, and now, my dump truck driver has delivered the loads to the wrong address and is causing me to have to work and pay more than I anticipated and cause grief with the neighbors.

I actually told this guy not to go past the concrete and expected the loads to be on the concrete and the drive of my house, but in his infinite wisdom, he decided that dumping it on a lot with no address was the best solution. Hopefully, it gets better, but this house may just be the end of me. I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

    the grass looks so nice, he wasn’t thinking at all to ruin the grass like that. The worst part, he turns around and think you’re not smart telling him to dump on the grass. This type of stuff happen ALL -THE-TIME at my work.

    Just take a step back, take a deep breath. I appreciate having family around. They are a big help a lot of time. Your brother-in-law is awesome, trying to help you out even in the pouring rain. 10 years from now, it might even funny when you guys are talking about it.

    The neighborhood seems to be a great one. Hopefully all the saga will end soon, so I get to read more of your stock analysis.


    • Thanks for the encouragement. My Bobcat guy says he is coming tomorrow, but that may or may not prove true. So, I made my way home, and I am just hanging out trying to let the issues of the last few days melt away. A little J&B is helping also. Anyhow, stocks have been on the back burner lately because the house’s have to be fixed and rented in order to keep money coming in. However, money is constantly going out because the taxes, insurance, flood, liability, repairs and labor keep playing out. Those expenses never stop, but the rent payments are never guaranteed. So, I have to keep moving on the projects to get the house rented in a few months.
      Thanks for stopping by.
