Go With Your Hunches!!!

October 20, 2015

Man going on a hunch…sure works Right!!

Several months ago my dear friends Gil and John recommended this contractor Manuel…to do work on my new (to me) house…they also recommended someone else who was less expensive….(I know I have written about Manuel before…it is Just that everything I felt, the first time I met him, has come true…)

his wife’s brother is this Fabulous cabinet maker…who has built bookcases for me and is now building a bar…and is going to redo my kitchen cabinets which sorely need it…his name is Jose…

Jose has a sister… whom he said was a Wonderful house cleaner…so I called her

she bolted in last Friday and gave the place a once over…her hair tied back…she was attractive…and is, very well endowed….she admitted her English is not that good….she said it would be $40.00 a week (every other week)..but to start with it would be $200 and she would come on Monday at 1….I hesitated but said OK…

….. I thought HOW can she do anything between 1 and the end of the day…and ALSO charge $200…

I just bit my tongue….

she arrived yesterday…with two other sisters…and man are they all attractive…I left for 2 hours…to pick up a new toilet at Home Depot..(and man Toilets are HEAVY….I had to get two men help me load it)….

but when I came home…I was TOTALLY flabbergasted…as those girls worked their asses off…the place was Spotless…for the first time…..Ever

and then I asked Manuel to recommend a plumber…as I had got a quote from the Highest recommended plumber on Yelp….a white man (sorry white men just don’t cut it with me as much as men of color do)…who said well for the installation of your toilet..it will cost $150.00 and for the installation of your kitchen faucet will be another $150.00 and we can’t come over for 3 days….

well Raul…is one of the sweetest men I have ever met…is from Medford Oregon….he worked for over 2 hours…and charged $175.00….

I texted Jose…thanking him for recommending his sister….and telling him how wonderful his sisters are….and what a wonderful mother he must have…he texted me back with a smiley face…saying he would tell his sisters and his mother…

I Really would like to meet his mother….there are the three sisters I met and then Manuel’s wife…and I think Antonia said she had one brother who worked for Manuel….and another one besides Jose….so the poor lady produced at least 7 children…which makes me think of my dear friend Nacho who is the youngest of something like 13…Mexican are Truly amazing…and have contributed soo much to this country…..

it is funny ..but since I was young..and knew I was gay…I Always envisioned myself with a Mexican/Hispanic/Latin Lover…well my last one WAS second generation American…tho he said his family was from Spain….puff …puff…

I was not At All knowledgeable about people on drugs back then…as now I recognize all the signs of a drug addict…their constant look over the shoulder….the bursts of enthusiasm….

I took Gil to London…and Man he treated me like shit…I could NOT wait to get him home….it was pure Hell….

when I was in college…all that was available were uppers and downers ….grass was just being introduced…NOTHING like the mind altering meth etc that exists now…I am Very thankful …as being an insecure young guy …with questions about homosexuality which was a “disease” back then …I know I would have tried what is available now….which would have changed and ruined my life forever…..

I would Never have met Manuel, nor this bungalow….nor this absolutely wonderful environment….of weather, animals and people…

I have to get Manuel to help me prepare for El Nino….I have already one gas powered pump…but need at least two more…

and since I cut the cable bill…I was so relieved to see it was just $77.00 now for the top limit internet ..I get live stream of CNN from Sling, Hulu provides the shows that aired the night before…and then with Netflix …and Amazon Prime

..I mean HOW many shows can a serious book reader watch…..

the plump lesbian couple across the pond from me….were just served barbecue by one of their’s very TALL son…almost 7 feet….

binoculars are truly wonderful…I took them out to watch the geese….which have not been around this week…there always are a few Mallards for some reason….and ALWAYS a lone white Egret…(Sumner don’t they travel in pairs?)

Michelle would be saying to me now…”Focus!!”

which would take me back to my hands and sewing the tulle for my Halloween costume….

gosh so much to sew in just over a week …..

but Seriously…Michelle is so RIGHT…

in Everything one does in Life…one must stay focused on what you are doing….love…relationships…work…

and if you get burned out….and things don’t feel right….it just means

Time To Move On

as you must go with your Hunches!!!
