Orchids and Onions: Saturday, February 9, 2019

February 9, 2019

Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Orchids to my awesome family. After seeing the creepiness of, odd art by seniors, its proof of what you have dealt with. Stay strong, the fact someone of that age makes a sign like that is proof of what you deal with. It’s so very creepy. I love your attitude, and I’m not sure I could be as loving as you. Mom

Onions to the city for lack of “No Dogs” signage in Rotary Park. Two small signs at the drive in entrances are not enough. Painting more of the sidewalk symbols throughout the park, every 50 feet or so, will go a long way to getting people’s attention. Many offenders just aren’t aware.

Orchids to the store director at Smith’s, Troy Pace, for taking the time to find a particular pair of sandals for me. He went out of his way to find what I was looking for and had it brought to the store for me. I thank him very much.

Onions to the Canadian Air Force and the noise pollution they cause by flying over our town everyday all day.

Orchids to Derek at Aune Brothers Construction. Derek and his subs did an amazing job putting in our French doors and moving our eight foot windows to our hallway. Awesome company.

Onions to the police in this town. Running red lights. Wow! I was driving on the highway; I stopped, and the officer next to me ran the light. Also I see a lot of people speed on Oro Grande before and after school and an officer sits at the church or on Vaquero and doesn’t pull anyone over. Shame!

Orchids to Jarod, assistant manager of a local automotive parts store for refusing to sell me a special ordered part which arrived in poor condition and outdated. He reordered three times, same results. Jarod was more upset than I, and suggested he refund my money. Jarod is a definite asset to his company.

Onions to my wife for putting my dirty laundry out for all to see. People are talking and laughing. You destroyed my squeaky clean image in a day. I did wrong. What guy doesn’t have the problem? Had you bought me navy blue instead of white no one would’ve noticed. Why didn’t you use bleach like other wives do?
