My part time gig is delivering notices to folks behind on their mortgages. These are not legal papers but are a notice that the lender wants their attention. There is often an offer for refinancing. The company, and the manager for my area have treated me well over the years and I don’t mind going out on these trips to help them. It doesn’t hurt I’m paid well for these out of area assignments. Then, there is a saving by the late Jackie Cooper, car sales trainer; I took to heart many years ago.
“Winners do what losers won’t”.
There were other assignments along the way. One was at a new subdivision way off from anywhere. For affordable housing, people working in Metro Denver are now driving 50+ miles. Common sights in rural Colorado are take home cars.
All along the route you see Trump signs. One was a lighted sign on a tall pole. This is definitely Red State country.
When traveling this route this is always a place I visit. First, the bladder, and second to reflect on the nature of man and the value of government promises.
A favorite sight on any back haul.
The COVID scam allowed many folks to stop paying on their mortgages. How many doing so were for legitimate reasons I can’t say. What I can say is many of the people I visit are $28,000+ delinquent. My sympathy is muted when I see full dress motorcycles, ski boats, ATVs and $80,000 trucks on the property.
Banner spent the day at my sister's house. He does well on road trips but he can be a distraction. Home, this morning, he seems to have recovered from the ordeal.
Why bother making the bed?
Yesterday was my late son’s 13th wedding anniversary. I called his widow. She and my granddaughter were enroute to Charlestown, S.C. to visit granddaughter’s boyfriend who is attending Navy A school (whatever that is). I offered to come to S.C. and shoot him but was told that isn’t needed. My daughter-in-law approves of the boyfriend so grandfather needs to just shut up.
Granddaughter and DIL live near Spartanburg, SC. Am I proud of granddaughter?
DIL tells me all the tailoring and pressing was done by my granddaughter. I do believe she can pass any inspection.

As always, YMMV
