Like sands through boards of the deck out back, so are the utility woes of our lives. To update everything done thus far in our ongoing utility woes.
- The electricity was knocked out by a bad storm and the line had to be replaced.
- The water line was incorrectly marked and was hit by the electric company and had to be replaced.
- The Internet cable was pulled down by the plumbing company and had to be replaced.
- The Andress offices upstairs are hotter than a cat on a tin roof.
The electric company brought out a portable meter, and when they could get back in, they replaced the damaged electrical line underground. In doing so, they hit our water line and the plumber got our water running again. When they left, the arm of the backhoe pulled down the internet line. The Internet company came out Monday evening and replaced that cable and raised it up some so it is not in such danger of being hit. I saw Larry bring in a window unit yesterday for one of the upstairs offices. The Plumber asked Lee to let him know how much the cost of repairing the internet is, so that is a really nice gesture of him, and we certainly appreciate having a contact of such quality and integrity in our files of people we need.
So as of Tuesday, June 20th 2017, The electricity is fixed, the water line is fixed, the Internet is fixed, there is at least some cool air blowing upstairs, and we have a new yard guy who made some good progress on our lawns here at the office and the surrounding three properties attached to it. He should be able to finish this evening. As I type, my oldest son is working on some outside projects here at the office that will make our deck out back nicer, the shed will hold the extra stuff that it should hold, and by the end of the week, we should have a couple – few flower beds to go to work in. Yay, progress!
I also spoke to Lee this morning about coordinating a ribbon cutting with the Chamber of Commerce here in Cameron, so watch for those details to come! We would sure love for everyone to make it out. Who knows what all goodies we will have available! Also don’t forget we will have a bake sale coming up to benefit the Feeders of the Lambs program here in Cameron sometime over the summer as well. If you would like to help out in some way, or make a much needed and appreciated donation, please let us know by using the “Contact Us” tab and we would be happy to fill you in on the particulars.
Yes, we’ve got lots and lots to stay plenty busy with! New projects to continue the growth of this wonderful business, and more opportunities to do the most good that we can and also to have fun everyday!
