Sunday, June 26, 2022 – Good Start, But The End, Not So Much

Hi Honey,
Woke up even earlier at first this morning, 5:30, but I read and fell back to sleep and it was after 7:30 by the time I woke the next time. After chores, starting some laundry, and some more research on the tractor, I decided to take the plunge, so I drained the hydraulic fluid and found the strainer just above the drain plug, managed to get that out and clean it. Not as dirty as I thought it was going to be, so it remains to be seen if that’s the actual problem with my 3PH. I don’t have hydraulic fluid yet, so I just let it drain, cleaned the strainer as best I could and put it back in, just need to fill it back up, then I can check it. I did find a good website that gives me a step-by-step diagnostic procedure to determine the problem, so if cleaning the strainer doesn’t work, I have a process for narrowing down the problem. A thunderstorm came in just as I finished the job, and it rained on and off all afternoon, so I spent the rainy Sunday binge-watching Supernatural, all quiet for awhile. Then that woman with the dogs, who didn’t come back yesterday, finally arrived here late in the afternoon. After I fed my horses I went to do rounds, chatting with everyone, but when I passed her, I simply tried to let her know another big storm was coming, but she immediately started picking a fight with me, and had her tablet up recording the whole thing. Ridiculous. She started ranting about how she was going to demand reimbursement for her gas because she had to take her dogs to a sitter, and show she was going to sue, and get me fired, and all sorts of crazy threats and lies. I almost laughed out loud when she accused Lola of “taunting” her dogs, while Lola was on her cable in the screen room and her seven dogs were running around free in a paddock! She was crazy rabid! She ignored the fact that I let her stay overnight the first night even when she had all those dogs that weren’t allowed, and the fact that it clearly stated on the website that only two dogs are allowed, and that all I was doing was enforcing the rules. I don’t understand people that get that miserable, and try to make everyone around them as miserable as they are. Sigh… So another tense week here, evidently, since their permit goes until Thursday. I’ve already told James to expect a complaint, I’m sure I’m not hearing the last of this. It’s too bad they allow regular campers here, if it was exclusively a horse camp like it used to be, I’d be on my own, which suits me just fine! Well, after that whole mess, I’m just about ready for another shower and bed! Good night, babe! Love you!
