Problems and People

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Well for those who do not know i had to buy a used fridge last week, the one we got from Sears stopped working. Two years and it is no good anymore. We had trouble with it for a long time though and they refused to do anything. They blamed it on the wiring and i even forked out the money for the coverage. Then the second time around they said the preexisting condiotions bit. It was not worth the money I put down on it. The new one runs like a dream and no computerized thing in this one at all.

The water heater problems was fixed after we figured out that the flame had to relit in it. At first we thought we had to drain it and replace the other thing. It has been a learning experience for us. Of course once I told my sister-in-law about our troubles she said her bit about moving into an apartment again and selling the place. She does not even know how bad it is. No one is going to want to buy it the way it is. And no way I am going to allow her to move my stuff when she was so careless before and shoved boxes around and stuff ended up cracked or broken.
Right now she has enough to handle with my brother. He had 2 seizures a week ago or more and now he cannot drive for 3 months.

I have some very strange people on the van. One has not been on in a few weeks but that one wanted marijuana legalized. One that is still on now talked about legalizing prostitution! For heavne's sake what is wrong with these people?! Anytime you are under the control of a substance you do not have all your faculties. Meaning accidents can happen whether you are drunk or on drugs. As far as prostitution, do we not have enough problems with pornography and Aids and STD's now? Let alone families being ripped apart because spouses are unfaithful to each other. Legalizing prostitution would only make it 10 times worse. We should not be promoting anything that turns women into sex objects. I did not say anything but later I thought is she another one who is trying to get me going because she knows I am a Christian?

Outside of that I had a nice time at the park on Sunday listening to an artist our church was promoting, Jack Gafford. he was originally in country music and worked alongside Kenny Chesney.

    Glad your appliance issues have been resolved. For years we bought only refurbished or used appliances because the price was so much better. I think our first stove cost us $50. The seller had just bought themselves something newer and fancier. Personally, I prefer basic. The more bells and whistles, the more can go wrong. It could be interesting to ask people in a non-confrontational way why they're in favor of something.

    Glad they're both fixed now Laura.

    If we were all the same and thought the same there would be little point in conversations.
    The only part of legalizing marijuana I'd agree with is for medical reasons, it's been proved to help those in chronic pain for for epileptic seizures where no other medicines help. And I'm talking of the one that hasn't the paranoia inducing substance.

    As for the other, well, guess it is the oldest profession and if it WERE to be legalized it could mean they and their "customers" would be safer and health checks could be mandatory.

    And Laura I PROMISE you I'm not saying this to annoy you, it's just another point of view. I hope I haven't offended you.

    Laura, I am so happy for you that the refrigerator and the hot water heater both have a solution. Rejoice!
    For years, appliances have not been made in the USA. Refurbished ones without all the bells and whistles seem to be a reasonable alternative. Thank God for people who know how to refurbish appliances. Not everyone can afford the new ones...

    Strange thing sometimes the conversation you have with strangers. Just a slice of Americana.
