Granny getting ready

Hello All.

Yes, I am preparing for a committee meeting this evening.
Actually, I SHOULD be preparing.
But, I am talking to you.

On the agenda.
A back up battery for our electric fence.
Will have to be bought.

An extra feature that will dial three people if the alarm goes off.
Also expensive.
And, I think unnecessary.
Our security company will be notified.
I don’t really want to know.
I am certainly not going out in the middle of the night.
The security company are paid to do that.

Street names.
I lived here for a couple of years before I realized we HAD street names.
And, the numbering system in the complex is crazy.
Definitely designed by a man.
They have quoted us for 21 signs.
We do not have 21 streets.
The reason given by the complex manager is we have quite a few circles.
If people drive around a circle and miss their number they won’t know where they are.
I say they must be dumb.
Go around the circle again.
Could be my first disagreement with the manager.
The signs are also VERY expensive.

Our power is off from four to six.
The meeting is at five thirty.
We are having it at one of the member’s houses.
He has a generator.
And, a big house.
We could never have it in our house.
We have neither.

The complex manager’s wife is going to pop in for coffee on her way home from work.
Only, the power will be off.
We might have to have a glass of wine.
Life is hard.

  1. Laughing hard here, Granny: “the numbering system in the complex is crazy. Definitely designed by a man.” Cheers to you and I hope that the meeting goes well. : )

  2. Your complex sounds very much like my street. The way the houses are numbered make it nigh on impossible to find anybody. If anyone is coming to me and they haven’t been here before, I have to make sure I remember to give them my phone number in case they get lost. However, I’ve got absolutely no sense of direction! A bit of a pointless exercise then, really. I’ve been known to lose my bearings in my hometown, and I’ve only been here for 42 years!! Hopeless!

    I hope your meeting goes/went well and that some worthwhile topics are dealt with in a way to suit everyone. Doing that isn’t easy at the best of times. As the saying goes, “you can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” (John Lydgate).

    I haven’t forgotten you, Granny. I just haven’t had a chance to get back to you today. I didn’t get your email yesterday – no idea where it went – I’ve checked my spam and deleted folders, but it’s nowhere to be seen. I’ll reply later or in the morning. Take care. Xx 🌞💖🌼

      • Don’t worry, Granny. You haven’t lost the plot at all. It’s me who has! I did get your missing email attached to your last one yesterday (that’s probably as clear as mud). I didn’t get the original one. I’ll email you this morning. Xx

  3. Alarm systems are a great idea, but by the time someone gets there, culprits are usually gone. A silent alarm is way more effective

  4. “Just keep going around in a circle!” LOL!
    will be interested to hear how the meeting turned out and how many glasses of wine you had to drink. 🙂
