Camping in your own back yard just does not have the same fill as when your at the lake or way back in the woods at a State park. I am thankful we had the camper though, it made a great refuge from the sweltering heat from the no AC in the house. It took all the money and then some we had set aside for the Fredericksburg Green Living Roundup this weekend but I guess I could always go next year.
Now on to bigger things. I am being charged with a class A misdemeanor over a misunderstanding. I have to go before a Judge on Monday to be charged. Here's the story.
When we moved into this place I had a plumber come by and check out our Aerobic sewer system. He replaced the burnt out pump and then told me the system was not properly installed. I called the installer to come out and take a look and found that it was actually installed right. The plumber did not believe me and called to complain to the state. The state called the county and the county man came out to find everything was fine. While he was here the neighbors septic system to the South of me turned on and the smell was horrific. The county man ended up writing them up and that was that. About a week later I received a letter in the mail that I was not compliant and had 30 days to get that way or else. I called the county man and he said it was a big mistake and he would take care of it. Three weeks later another letter came in the mail with a summons to court with these charges pending and if I did not show a warrant would be issued for my arrest. Dowg Gone man!
So calling the county man again and him giving the same story of not to worry about it. A day later he called me back and said with all this added attention to me, he decided to pull my file and found I did not have a maintenance contract with a licensed plumber and the charges would stand.
So this weekend I have to go to a training class to get certified to handle my own poo because I refuse to pay a plumber $200 to show up twice a year. So this little misunderstanding will cost me a day of work and another $150.00 and that's if the courts do not fine me for something else.
I tell you what, it's a dag gum racket if you ask me.
Monday this all should be cleared up, I hope.
I just want to be left alone. I am having more problems way out here in the country than I ever did while living in the city.
