Yesterday I had another egg customer stop by in the afternoon. Jennifer is her name. I like her pretty good. She is one of those real folks, what you see is what you get. No nonsense kind of lady.
I asked her how she liked my new sign and pointed at the NO TRESPASSING sign I have posted next to the gate entrance off of th patio.
Then I told her why I had it put up. She was like y'all, couldnt believe someone would be so bold, and stupid as to assume it was alright to go traipsing around someones property.
(By the way, before I forget, I wanted to let y'all know Ret92free, the man that left that message, he is just messing with me, we talk almost every morning over coffee, have been now for over ten years, he is just teasing me...lol. )
Then I tell her about the woman with the kids from hell. She says,
" I think I know who you are talking about."
I said, "Green truck?"
"Uh huh, thats her." she says to me.
How did she know? Well, turns out, she is the one that brought Jennifer over here for eggs in the first place. I told her I have a terrible memory and didnt realize that was her that she was with.
She says that boy is a terror. She has babysat him on several occasions (you couldnt PAY me enough to do THAT) and by now the boy minds her better than he minds his own mama.
She has tried to tell the woman, who is by the way, her neighbor, that that boy needs some boundaries.
Her reply is that he is still just a baby.
She proceeded to tell him no he isnt, he is old enough to be disciplined and given boundaries.
In one ear and out the other I guess. Good advice lost on deaf ears.
She told me the lady used to have a cockateil. The boy somehow managed to 'accidently' kill it. He banged on that cage all the time. She said he was kicking her dog at her house one time and she warned him he better stop that or her dog was going to bite him. The dog didnt bite him, so that was lucky on his part.
We both agreed that the woman is a bit loopy. She asks me if I knew that the woman had seven kids. NO! I asked if the woman knew what causes that??? We had a laugh. The woman looks younger than me, and has seven kids!
So Jennifer had her two boys with her. Two very well behaved boys, one was 11, one was about 8. I did allow them to go back and look around. I did tell them, even though it seemed they would do fine, not to be running, screaming and grabbing. They were fine, very well behaved.
I still havent really decided exactly what I am going to do. I think I will pretty much cut off any kids going to the back. If I think the kids are alright, like Jennifers kids, then I will let it slide.
I think Magran is right, I bet my insurance man would indeed tell me it was not a wise decision to let people back there. Most people anyway.
Like this sign? I found it on Ebay...only nine dollars...maybe I will buy one. ;)
Suns up, oh I have something so cool to show y'all. I have made a new breed of my own. It is going to be so exciting to see how they turn out when they are grown. I have five baby chicks so far that are a white silkie/Golden Phoenix cross. The babies are absolutely precious. Pictures to follow in a little while.
Everyone have a great Thursday, be back later. :)
