Cloudy......

It rained yesterday. A soft , steady rain that was good for the gardens. It didn't start raining before I pruned one of the apple trees and mowed a side yard. I hauled two wheel barrels of spoiled apples and debris to the compost bin. The apples will draw bees and I don't want anyone to get stung while picking an apple. I accomplished quite a bit so far this week, so I took advantage of the rain and had a lazy day. I took several reservations and put in a couple of rigs before closing for the night. One of the phone calls had said they would come in after 9 and I told him to use the night reservation and drop box. I was still up at 9:30 and saw the lights when they pulled in. I confess that I did not check the box before I went to bed.............







The sun shining in my window greeted me as I woke this morning. I stretched lazily and made my way to the kitchen to make coffee and lets the dogs out. Still clad in my sleeping attire, I heard a rig coming round the corner to the exit and decided to check the box. Fully expecting to find a registration and payment, I stuck my hand in and found .......... nothing. The man got out of the truck pulling his 5th wheel and made use of our dumpster while I grabbed some clothes. I was coming out my door as he saw me and turned out the entrance drive and left as quickly as he could. I heard something scrape against the big rocks guarding my flower bed and I sincerely hope that he sustained some damage. I did not have my glasses on and could not see his plate number. I am thinking that we should keep binoculars at hand for occasions such as this. The registrations were all gone from the clipboard, so they had covered all the bases, probably had it on board all filled out in case I caught them on the site.







A cloud has partially blocked the sun and my mood is cloudy, too.

I couldn't imagine doing that. Why are people like that? Go park in a Walmart if you don't want to pay. Bah.

Here's hoping that it was a company truck! That should be fun to explain to the higher ups ;o)

That is really terrible...I don't know how people like that can look in the mirror and live with themselves.

Wow. That's sad. Sounds like he was prepared. I'll bet he does this often.

People at your park just never cease to amaze me.

What is wrong with people? I will hope tomorrow dawns a bit brighter. Good for you for taking some lazy time for yourself.

Well, now that I hear you're letting people camp for free after 9:30, I might tell HH to hitch up the 5th-wheel. ;)

Lorenza said...

Yes!
My grandma says that if you do something bad... you will pay for it... sooner or later!
I hope tomorrow will be a not so cloudy day for you!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

I detest those sneaky 'runners'! We used to get them too, occasionally.
I too hope Karma exists!

Here's hoping your dogs went out and pissed all over his tires before he had a chance to pull out. Dirty rat bastard!
