    She was hired as a sub teacher, but... thats hit and miss. She's only gotten called twice and worked once. Clint is working at a call center and HATES it since he keeps getting written up for stupid stuff like going to the bathroom without permission. And he's only getting $10 an hour. One of my cousin's (by marriage)relatives has hired him to do home health care, since that is similar to what he did in Eureka, but right now she doesn't have any clients full time for him. He had one, but he was 90 and Clint only worked with him twice and.... he died.

    Most of the mines up there are laying off... so there are not a lot of jobs. I think they just went there for the free rent, to get away from their roommate, and to get out of California.

    We'll see what happens. If we end up having to buy passes, we may do that. It's all a little up in the air. Getting a hotel for our trip next week was a debacle enough. The place we always stay had a deal for $79.99 a night if you pay ahead of time, went to book it, it went up to $116 a night. So now we're at the Days Inn half a mile away.
    I hate when motels do that......

    Well Clint is a city slicker too... so they are both experiencing a sharp learning curve. Today she said they had no water again for a bit... and that the pump on the toilet went out and they would have to get a new one tomorrow.

    A pump on the toilet??? Uh.... toilets don't have pumps.... if you aren't getting water into the tank you have froze pipes somewhere.



    Yeah, I sheltered her to much growing up me thinks... just glad I set her straight before they went to the hardware store to buy a pump for the toilet....

    Who'd have thunk she would ever have moved to the prairie though? Unless she had lots of practice fixing things around the house, no way she'd have been prepared to live is such a small town close to nowhere. Not me anyway.

    Absolutely. And I don't mind paying the rent or heating or cable bills. In fact I'm always grateful to pay them.

    Time for me to get some sleep. My husband wants to head to the grocery store tomorrow, so I'm going to actually have to set my alarm. I haven't been doing that at all lately. It's been nice to be able to wake up without an alarm, no matter what time that turns out to be.

    Do you get to fully download? No error messages? And you just can't get it to open? Or what is the problem?

    She knew it was a small town but.. I don't think she realized how small or how much more stuff is like... food... because you are in the middle of nowhere. But next spring she is going to put in a garden and grow some of her own food. That will help out. And some of the neighbors have brought them sandwiches, french onion elk soup, fresh fish... cookies... they never had neighbors do that before!

    I dunno... I think 4 indoor cats is a bit much. If they had a 4000 sq ft home maybe. But in a 720 sq foot trailer?

    Re: RCMC #123:Chit-Chat, Blab and Spiel.. No matter how you put it we like to talk!

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes, I appreciate it. I've only driven to the store about 5 mins from my house. Other than that other people have driven me around. I'm the type when you wrong me I'm going after you. I only wanted the license plate but being that he spun out and gave up at that point just made it easier for me.

    I had dinner with my family this evening. Their all playing catch phrase, it's pretty funny watching them. My oldest niece goes back to ASU this Thursday. She graduates May 10th.

    I thought I had fully downloaded it, but when I try to open the game I get error messages. Just now I think I haven't loaded it all. . . I registered and accepted the email. . . then downloaded. . . Hmmm, I'm going to reinstall and pay attention this time, lol.

    Nice neighbors! I have a crazy neighbor who likes to shout at me from in front of my patio.

    I have two cats in a 640 sq. ft apartment. . . that's quite enough. I couldn't imagine double the cats in only 80 more sq ft.

    I lived in a pretty small town growing up in the desert but we had running water and the grocery store was only 5 miles away. If that really. Kudos to your daughter and son-in-law!

    Re: RCMC #123:Chit-Chat, Blab and Spiel.. No matter how you put it we like to talk!

    I'm opposite of most of you.

    When I moved to Reno (Sparks actually, the two towns border each other), I went from my closest neighbor about 1/2 mile away to a subdivision with houses 20' from each other.

    It was kinda ok at first, but got real old real fast. All kinds of noise, barking dogs, traffic, loud music, I just couldn't stand it.

    If I didn't move to Fernley when I did, I'd very likely be in prison for being some sort of mass- murderer......

    Lol.
