She is having terrible neck pain and she is going to the chiropractor to get help. She's been in this pain for 5 days now so lets send some prayers her way in hopes that she can be relieved of all her pain. It hurts too much when she tries to sit at the computer so until she feels better she prolly won't be posting.

Keep praying guys. Either it isn't working or the chiropractor didn't help. Well he really did but by evening, the pain comes back. The spasms have let up a lot though in my arm. Turns out though that the anti spasm stuff gives me dry mouth.

I had to go over to the duplex to yell at a tenant and her friends. It was 1:00 and the music could be heard a block away. Have you ever tried to yell when your tongue was stuck to the roof of your mouth?

Turns out it is the antispasm meds. So tonight I just took the pain pill, seeing the spasms have pretty much stopped.

Wow Esther, they probably though "she was stoned and came and fussed at us?" I drove straight in from Dallas once and was leaned on the center armrest most of the way home. The next day I could barely move my back was so stoved up, it hurt for days. Hopefully this will pass soon as we miss you here.

Esther let the police handle noise complaints. People are crazy. If they get mad at you they might decide to do something to ruin the property. Also, if they were that loud there was probably a lot of drinking going on and sometimes that's how people/landlords get shot. Pick up the phone next time and stay home and safe. ex[cop]

Gosh I was hoping you would be better by now and I will keep on with the prayers until you are pain free. Maybe it will take awhile for the Chiropractor to be able to get you aligned up right or the drugs to help ex[medic]. Not good to be running around trying to deal w/ misbehaving tenants either ex[getwell]

Yes, bit by bit it is getting better but sitting at the computer my neck doesn't like, AT ALL. Went to back cracker again this morning.

Tenants were outside around a fire pit Saturday night. Their neighbor across the street, called so Pete went over, about 10:30. Then somebody must have called the police on them. The police can't do anything because this duplex is in the country and there is no "ordinance" there. Then I got another call about midnight. So I got dressed and went over. I went passed the house and up the hill and turned around and parked part way down the hill. I got out of the car and the music was so loud it sounded like it was RIGHT there. I drove on down and into their yard. I walked up and yelled for them to "turn it down". Eventually Julie came out and we had a little yelling match, she swearing and me not. She said, "It's Saturday night." As if you have to be quiet during the week but not on Saturday. Evidently they left it turned down after that as I didn't get another call. They have been served an eviction notice and are supposed to be out by the 17th. We'll see.

Well bit by bit is better than nothing right? I have trouble with my neck sometimes. It gets stiff and doesn't want to turn sometimes, mostly when its cold I think anyway. If I try to turn it, it hurts. It also cracks a lot........I can hear it going, grit, grit, grit. It's not too good not to be able to turn your neck while driving but I manage. Then it will start to get better. Maybe I just overwork it out there digging holes and toting wood and all that hard labor stuff.

I know what you mean about the tenant thing. We have one rental house and we've had some real winners in there at times. Fighting, drugging, drinking,tossing garbage everywhere but inside the cans. We are getting better at picking out the bad apples but sometimes they can fool ya. If we could sell this house I would but the market is so bad it just isn't worth it. Hopefully things will pick up in the not so distant future....at least maybe before we are dead, otherwise the kids will have to deal w/ it all ex[nod]

Just realized I hadn't said much about this for a while and needed to thank those who have prayed for me. I now have had 10 appointments with my new best friend, Dr. Kline. LOL. My neck is 100% better but the problem has kind of moved down my back to the groin on my left leg. It kind of comes and goes but is very painful to walk on at times. At least I don't have a problem when I sit or lay.

As for the tenants, they are 99% moved out. They recently did some shingling to work off their rent and said they'd lay any carpet we needed for the rest of the rent they owe. Can't beat that.

Glad you are feeling so much better Esther and maybe the doc is slowly scooting it down your legs and right out your big toe ex[giggle]

So now you need to search for new tenants? Are they gonna be hard to find during this time of year? So the old tenants are coming back to do work for you..............that's good and I hope they show up ex[nod]

Out my big toe. LOL.

I don't know if we'll have trouble finding tenants or not in this weather. We have had changes at all different times of the year but never in the deep snow.

These idiot people had promised to do the shingling clear last early fall and put it off so now they get to do it in freezing weather. Luckily it is just a little entrance into the walk out basement in the back about 6' x 4' with a peak roof. Somehow when the house was reroofed, they didn't do that little thing. I can't help but wonder how the shingles act when they are bent to put on the very top. I would think they would break. We'll see.

Esther, you use a razor knife and cut the shingles where the tab slots are and then fold them over the ridge overlapping like the scales on a fish. Unless the pitch is very severe, they won't break.

I just thought in the cold they might tend to be more brittle. Most roofers tend to shy away from roof work in this weather. Imagine going up and down an aluminum ladder after tramping through snow and working on a roof in 20 degree weather...!! Fortunately this roof is not very big but still-------

Cutting the ridge caps should be done inside if it is that cold. Spread them out and let them warm up. As you cut them you can lay them out as if they were on the ridge so you will know when you have enough. Just cover the colored part and overlap a little where the shingle turns black and the tacky spots are.
