Saturday 4/2/2011

Did anyone play an April Fool's Day joke on anyone yesterday?  I  was going to but got distracted by things going on around my home and property.

I am still attempting to find what I did with that tax documentation.  I have no clue.  I may be having to go around and get all that stuff all over again.  Actually, I could get by with just stopping by the processing center that took my house payments that year and getting them to get that stuff available.   I am going to search every where I can think of to search before I do that, but my places to look are running down to nothing.  I couldn't find that stuff in the closet and though there are a few piles of paperwork left to look through, I don't think it's in there.

As for the cat situation, I have found a couple of products that might do the job of keeping them away from their preferred crapping area on my property.  One is a motion activated noise maker - at ultra high frequency that apparently they can hear and don't like but that humans allegedly cannot hear.  I don't give much credence to such things, though.  The other is a motion activated sprinkler.  You set the thing up aimed at the area you want to "protect".  A cat walks into that area and kabaam, a sprinkler turns on and I would guess a cat isn't going to much care for water being sprayed onto them and will disappear.

I don't see, however, why I should have to foot the bill for a problem created by someone else's animal.  I'll be giving that some thought and on Monday I will also be calling animal control about the legalities of certain actions (which no, does NOT include killing cats, I wouldn't do that, though I have had it suggested by several individuals).  I mean, if I catch a cat on my walled property, can I not deal with it by getting rid of it, without killing it or even putting it into a position to die?

It also hardly excuses a "man" threatening my tenants and telling them that my life is going to end if a single cat disappears.

The old computer needs a new monitor.  The one I have with it now is down to showing almost nothing, the screen has faded to the point it's almost completely dark.  I just found one on Craigslist and I will be getting it later on after the guy gets home from his errands.

Done with this one, later!

I'm finally home. Uneventful trip, besides the huge line at security checkpoint to get to the airport's gates.  That was utterly rid...
