Thursday, May 26, 2022 – Got Paint, Mostly Quiet Day

Hi Darlin’,
Got a pretty good night sleep, got up early, did my chores, and just finished breakfast when James showed up. We chatted awhile about recent events, then went over to the campsite of the folks I had to remove the other night. He had told me to leave it because he wanted law enforcement to issue a littering citation, evidently the minimum to do that is 15 lbs. of trash, which was WAY exceeded with all the junk they left behind. We packed it in garbage bags and stored it in the locked storage room in case it goes to court. Evidently they tried to get into Hickory Hammock but Steve had been warned they might try that, and he turned them away. It turns out that maybe that wasn’t the best idea, if they had stayed the night on one of the properties they could have been cited for fraudulent permitting or some such statute. I was just glad they were gone from here! Once we finished that, we drove over to the maintenance shed and retrieved a whole bunch of paint cans, some of which hadn’t even been opened yet, so I’m pretty sure I’ll have enough to mark most, if not all, of the trails. By the time we got done, though, I felt it was too late in the day to start on a job like that, so I took the afternoon off and mostly binge-watched TV. Had some day riders come in, then later had some equestrian campers come in and park over by the barn, I checked them in while I was feeding the horses. Had a final non-equestrian camper on a motorcycle showed up around 8:30, just when the mosquitoes were at their worst, and he didn’t stop, so I had to walk to him to check him in, a foreigner, sounded German. Now I’m ready for shower and bed, starting to get in the habit of doing that earlier and earlier, since I know I’ll soon only be able to work in the mornings. So off I go! Good night, babe! Love you!
