Yes, it happens.  It happens when you don’t want it to happen.  It has its way of just popping up at the most inopportune times.

Is there something in the air?

I won’t get in to everything that is going on, but most of it has to do with flakey people.  My parents taught me to be responsible.  The earliest lesson I learned in this regard was when I was about 12.


I was playing in the orchard at the end of the street.  I found a slot car chassis, and brought it home. There it sat for several days.  Nothing was done to it.

Toad, a boy who lived a few doors down came asking about it.  I told him I found it, and I gave it to him.  You’d think that would have been the end of it, and that I would have been thanked for returning it to its rightful owner.

Nope.  It happens that didn’t work, or so he said.  As a result, I ended up buying him a new slot car.

Ever since that day I am careful to take responsibility.  I’m also careful that I don’t put myself in a situation like I did with the slot car.

Unpaid Judgements

You’d think having an unpaid judgement hanging over your head would be a high priority to resolve.  I have one former tenant in that situation, and several others who SHOULD be in that situation.

My comment to Elizabethe was that someday they’ll go to buy a car or a home and the judgement stop them from getting credit.  She replied that they probably will never get to that point in life.

Sad, but true.

Needed Break

The temple is a needed break tonight.  If I weren’t going to the temple tonight I’d probably withdraw myself from the world.
