Inlaw's butt and St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day. The parade was totally crazy this year. It was so nice out and packed with a million drunk people. For buffaloI find St. Patrick's Day to be an annomoly, because for some reason there were only like 10 black people at it. This is odd compared to any other festival in a city where half the population is black. I guess the black and the irish people just don't get along?

Hiking at 18 mile creek

We went hiking today at 18 mile creek with (e:jim) and (e:james). It was so nice out.

We climbed on some cliffs and saw a waterfall with a rainbow in it.

image

At least my winter didn't suck this bad.
image

Afterwards, we went to Thirsty Buffalo. This was my seconds time there and I was really not impressed with the food. Its okay. The entrees are defiantely not worth the price. The last time I got the ribs and they were cold. $17 for ribs that were cold. (e:jim) ordered us the poutine fries apettizer. They were pretty yum.

Is this a gay guide to Europe

I saw this on the PBS member drive this morning. Who chose that name?
image

This is actually a gay magazine but it got so much gayer when (e:libertad) accidentally dipped it in the grease and blue cheese drippings from (e:terry)'s chicken hoagie at Jim's Steakout last night.

Ponderosa lemons

I think my favorite smell on dart is ponderosa lemon blossoms. These ones at the botanical gardens smell do good. A ponderosa lemon is a cross between a lemon and a citron. They are as big as grapefruits.
I searched for candies made out of them but came up empty handed ;
( Someday when I have a greenhouse I would really like this plant.

Event the cacti were flowering
image

The orchids are always so pretty

image

(e:matthew) made me talk a picture of these walking irises so that he could remember there name.
image

This plant looks like someone alien's nuts

Shrimpstravaganza

So, at Wegman's, the wild caught 5lb bag of jumbo shrimp comes to $9.00 per lb which is a great deal. They are beyond tasty.

And now the other one

Her "check" was "stolen" so she has like half the money. We didn't have a lease for her until she paid the first month's rent. Now she is saying its not really convenient for her to have a lease. I think its time for her to go which brings us back to no tenants. Serioulsy, that house is making me bankrupt.

The Tenant Calls

So after more than a month of missing in action and being evicted, the tenant calls while I was leaving the botanical gardens today to say she is "so sorry about the inconvenience but her baby was sick and someone stole her phone." Serioulsy, think about it, you disappear and stop payng rent and never contact you landlord for over a month. The last time we heard from her was the beginning of February.

She says she will need a couple week to get the stuff out, something about her SSI stopping and having to switch to welfare. What does it take to get one responsible tenant.

The rental Property Saga Continues

So many things were happenng on friday. The nice part was getting new furniture. The upstairs looks a lot different now. Best of all, the den is comfortable ;)

While we were at the tenants, cleaning up in the attic we discovered just how much exra junk the last couple tenants left. I never thought to check th eback of the basement. I just assumed that no one had gone down there. Then I found they used it to store old broken appliances. Something I really don't get considering both appartment came with appliances that were of good quality, if not new.

So now in the basement I have so many scrap metal appliances. I hate it. I am sure all the metal is worth money but not enough to have to haul all the shit out. I knew about the old furnace, and two hand crank washing machine from another but not there is a broken refrigerator, a broken stove and a broken washing machine, argh. I also found like 4 probably broken small televisions

image

There is just an overwhelming amount of junk with that. I seriously need another two ton day at the dump. Next time all of our stuff is pretty much out so it will be easy to see if anything is left by tenants.

There was also some sort of garbage dump going on in the backyard, which is especially weird considering there were two empty ultra large size garbage totes.

It was filled with bags of diapers and stuff which cats or rats decided to pull apart. Fun. People are such scumbags.

image

Next step, now that we won the eviction proceding: we get to go pay the City Of Buffalo $105 to have them officially tell the missing tenant who abandoned the property, that she is out by pinning anotice on her door. Why that costs $105 is a mystery, considering she is no longer there. If we don't pay its not yet official.

After she is offically evicted, we get the pleasure of changing locks and cleaning up her ton of shit.

The best part of the whole thing was my aquisition of baby jesus in a coffin. If animatronic, old school style with a wind up key.
