We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

The House Leveling Team

Well this is a little of what we seen watching the contractors work on our house leveling.  I left all our chickens in their coops yesterday and they were unhappy about that!  Can you imagine 40 chickens caught under our house? BAKKK  The ladies ran out of the coops like well bats out of Hades this morning.  It was funny, chicken stampede into the open air . SOUND THE TRUMPETS for my FEATHERED STRUMPETS. hee heee

The only problem we are having now, is the bank this company uses puts a ten day hold on our payment by check because we use a credit union in Mississippi.  I guess this area has not caught up with the modern world and Paypal money transfers. LOL Go figure....now I will have to figure out how to get the monies transferred electonically to them; thing is they still have our check.

Second great thing, we recieved our tax refund electronically. It's a nice thing to wake up to on such a beautiful but, chilly day.

I can picture the chickens squawking while shut in the coop.... every time a door opens or someone enters the immediate vicinity! Hahahaha.

Oh, those poor biddies, I'm sure they were happy to be let out! I can imagine the mayhem when you let them out! :)

Sigh... if it's not one thing it's two. I don't understand why all the banks don't use instant transfer by now. It is 2010, after all! Or is it your credit union holding up the game?

Is the floor level? Pipes ok? Everything check out under there? I only ask, because we had so many problems. BTW, the floor "bounces" again!

Jill, The company, bank and I worked it out. Because 5 men depending on getting paid not counting the company. So far, so good on the leveling, they will come back in 28 days to check and adjust plus we have a three year guarantee.

ROFL Huggable John, Do you mean 'Sharon' as in Osborne? I think, I would be honored. She is a ballsy woman and tough character with a mushy soft center much like myself. ~;>

Thanks Jennifer, The real test will be in the settling the next month or so. The hens have recovered from their imprisonment as well. LOL
