So my neighbor was in town the other day, in from Huntington Beach Ca where she lives. She comes in about 3 times a year to check on her place . She has 2 houses on it and she got it in the divorce settlement so she went back home and rented out the two houses.
She calls me up and want to meet over at the fence line where she has a rental house. I go over and this is what she said:
I want you to put in a gate here where I am standing or you can put in a set of walk over stairs.
Yea you have nicer property than I do and along this fence line would be a good place for a garden, of course I will take care of it, but I need a gate to come in! When do you think you could have it done?
- HUH, I am not understanding, you want me to put in a gate so you can put in a garden???
Yes, I need it about 40’ x 80’ and since my house here is close I can run my own water!
- Your own water, well that real generous of you.
Oh and I need for you to put in a small animal fence in so the animals won’t get in an d eat the veggies and if you want you can take out your fence and that way you can save on putting in a gate.
- Well this piece of land is overgrown, has a lot of brush and saplings, not sure it suits your purposes.
Oh yea, I know it needs to be cleared and if you get to real soon I can help, but I need to get it going as I want the garden ready for planting around February or so for some of the stuff and besides you can have some of the veggies and fruits, I will share.
- Your too generous, let me work on this I will get with you later, I got to run, need to get into town to pick up some diesel for my John Deere.
OK, do you have plow or anything like for your tractor we are gonna need one.
- Gotta run, let know when you are in town again…
YES, she wants to put her garden on my property, she wants me to plow it, build a fence around it and put in a gate so she can come and go…maybe she was dropping acid or smoking dope, but my wife and I were dumbfounded…
You can’t make this up…This is a true story, I am not kidding, my wife was standing there with her jaw open, we just shook our head. I don’t answer when she calls. She is about 60 or so, maybe late 50’s even, got HildaBeast sticker on her car she keeps here.
