Lingonberries and Hilary

  Hilary got here Christmas Eve. 
Darlene made turkey.  We all had turkey and dressing and the extras.  Hilary came with Lingonberries.  She knows I like them.  Lingonberries are wild natural berries.  It is a Swedish delicacy.  Next time you make a turkey replace the cranberry with Lingonberries.  (Now Darlene does not care about cranberries and so she did not care for the Lingonberries. ) 

Update:  I just talked to Darlene on the telephone and she said that she liked the Lingoberries and said it was very good.

 

Christmas Dinner 2016

  You can get Lingonberries at Walmart by the way.  You can get 14.3 oz for $4.51 and you can get 11 pounds of it from Amazon for $78.00 or you can get a smaller amount from Amazon. 

    Hilary showed up just as I was making the food for the two cats.  So I had the patio door open and the cats were in the living room.  Hilary was so happy to see that I was letting them in and feeding them. 

    Hilary’s husband had her laptop repaired in Sweden and sent it here for her. So she was happy to get it back and working.  She had a lot of images on it.  I been trying to talk Hilary into using the cloud but she is a hard sell.

  Hilary came with gifts for us all.
  She stayed the night and then headed back to Russell’s apartment to spend Christmas day with her son.  She is going to be staying there until she goes back to Sweden. 

  We had a nice visit with Hilary.  

Seismic event here

 Russell, my grandson, and I moved here in 02/2011 and share this apartment.  Russ is 27 years of age and works in retail sales.  He just pays for the Internet service here.
  He works full time and he just got a big promotion and a pay increase of $9.00 an hour.  But they want him right away at the new store and it is not even in Fort Worth or Dallas.  He is going to have to get his own apartment.  

  I will be OK. I just need to come up with an extra $60.00 or so a month to pay for the Internet.  
  But he is going to have to come up with a ton of money to get his own apartment.  Hilary, his mother, is here and she is going to help with the money … But it is going to be hard on Russ and Hilary.  
  I can not help.  I just live Social Security payment to Social Security payment.  

  The next few days and weeks are going to be hard and stressful.  
   I am going to be living alone in a two bedroom and two bathroom apartment.

   Rusty, the cat, loves Russ and he loves the cat.
   Rusty will be moving with Russell.  He will have to get an apartment and pay the pet fee but Rusty is going to be moving.  I am going to be alone.

The spinning cat

Rusty is a sweet cat and she loves attention and love.  But she is a pain the butt.  She is under my feet all the time.  She wants to jump up and get on my desk.  In the mornings most of all.
Now she likes to get on the back of my chair.  The first time she did it I decided to go around and around to get her off my chair.  She dug her claws into the chair and even bit the chair to stay on.  But she loves to go around and around.
When Hilary goes back to Sweden I am going to have to feed her and clean the cat litter.  With my  arthritis that hurts.  Rusty is not just a pain in the ass She is a pain in the neck, shoulders and back now.

 

Life in Texas…

 Some of you must be wondering what is going on here..  I do not want to say very much about Hilary and what has been going on with her.  I guess you can read between lines…  You may have a little bit of an idea.
  Hilary got three lots of land here in Texas.  Not the best part of Texas.  Hilary is a very trusting person and she paid a couple of guys to help her. They took her money and did nothing or almost nothing and asked for more money.
Hilary went down to her land with her boat and tent .. She heard gun shots all the time …
A couple of stray dogs came over to her lot and watched Hilary clearing brush and stuff from her lot.  The dog then followed Hilary as she went to use a rest room and get some water.  One of the dogs ran into a yard and killed a chicken. The owner came out and demanded that Hilary pay for the chicken …  Hilary told him that the dogs did not belong to her… He said he was going to get his gun and kill the dogs and made a made a verbal threat towards Hilary.
Hilary called me and was on the phone with me.. she was scared for herself and the dogs.

Long story.. police were called .. said that the people there shoot everything that comes into their yard and that they had shot a boy in the neck in the past.
Hilary called a guy that ran a cab in the area.. He took her to a motel …
Hilary does not want me to mention the motel .. because they fed a couple of stray cats.
Hilary went to do her laundry at the motel and someone went into her room and stole a brand new $600.00 cell phone.  She has it less than a week plus some cameras and other stuff.
The motel people told her that they could review the tapes … a day later or something.  Hilary stayed to see the review of the tape.  In the tape a guy comes across the parking lot with a hoodie on .. the motel people said.. Oh yes.. we see him doing this all the time.. But we never see his face!  He pushed all the doors on the motel.  The doors do not close good.. You have to make sure you pull the door closed and hear it click.  Hilary door opened.
So the guy went into her room stole the stuff came outside her door and made a phone call and then tossed her cell phone down in front of her door and left.  In just as very few minutes a different guy came and picked up the phone and took it to the office. He turned it in ..said he found it.  He left.  Then in a couple of minutes a couple came and went to the office and said they lost there phone and the clerk gave them Hilary’s cell phone.

There is a lot more to the story..  All of it very upsetting to HIlary.
I think Hilary will be gong back to Sweden very soon.  She came to visit and stayed to help out Darlene, James and me.  She also stayed to take care of cats and kittens here.
She may stay a bit longer .. we got family going to visit …  But I think Hilary will be heading back to Sweden soon.

      When she is out of the United States I may tell some of the story … But right now..
I do not want to do anything that is going to put any stress on her ..
Hilary has been here about a year.  She has lost one cell phone. She had one cell phone stolen in FL. She has had one cell phone stolen in Texas.

Three lots of land in rural Texas for sale cheap

Hilary got got three lots of land in a very rural part of Texas. She wanted to be on her own and away from people.  The land is in a flood area and is filled with water moccasins and all sorts of critters.  Hilary loves all sorts of non human critters.
Hilary also spent a lot of money to get a sail boat and have it hauled down to her land. But because her lots were deep mud she could not get the boat on her land.  A neighbor let her park her boat on his land.
Hilary is a trusting soul .. I am not even going to tell you how many hundreds of dollars she gave to a couple of men to do work for her.  They did nothing except take her money and ask for more. Long story.
I can not go into much detail here.  I may post more when Hilary is back here safe.  Tomorrow  she is going to try and get her boat across the road on her lot.  She paid a guy $200.00 to do it tomorrow.  Hilary should be home from the area Wednesday at 0800.  I may try and tell the story here ..but I want to make sure that she is safe before I go into any details.

 

 Anyone want to buy three lots of land in Texas?  There will be a boat on the land and I suspect it will have bullet holes in it.  Looking to make a fast sale and will make you a good price.

Anyone ever see the movie deliverance?
