Family Can Be Trouble but They Are Still Family

My uncle gets into trouble. Not bad trouble where he goes to jail for years. He does petty stuff that gets him fines, and he has had a couple of jail sentences for three months. He was in for about two weeks total. He does not do drugs, but he does have a problem with … Continue reading “Family Can Be Trouble but They Are Still Family”

My uncle gets into trouble. Not bad trouble where he goes to jail for years. He does petty stuff that gets him fines, and he has had a couple of jail sentences for three months. He was in for about two weeks total. He does not do drugs, but he does have a problem with alcohol. My dad and his brother are like night and day. I love my uncle, but I will not soon forget the time we needed a Sacramento criminal attorney to keep him from going to jail for years.

There are things you can get into with other people and just be in proximity and be in serious trouble. Being a passenger in a getaway vehicle is an example. If you are hanging out with friends who decide to commit a crime with you present, then you get in trouble too. I believe that they did not tell my uncle at all about the robbery they were going to commit. Continue reading “Family Can Be Trouble but They Are Still Family”

My New Apartment is Going to Be Nice

I knew I had to start looking at Santa Fe apartment rentals sooner rather than later. I just did not want to do it because I wasn’t feeling too optimistic about my chances of getting a nice apartment at a rate that I can afford. However, I did not have the ability to stop time, so it was something I had to do since I was not going to have a home at the end of the month. I only had a one year lease where I was, and my landlord was not going to renew it because his son needed a place to live.

That left me out in the dark, so to speak. I just went online and started looking at different apartment complexes, knowing I needed to do something rather than sit there and feel sorry for myself. When I came across the Las Palomas Apartments, I suddenly got optimistic again. The apartments there are really nice, and there are even amenities that are included for the community.

A Dangerous Neighbor Wrecked My Roof

Sometimes my neighbor can be quite an idiot. He gets into all kinds of stupid situations, and sometimes they involve me. Recently he rented a vehicle to help him cut down some trees in his yard. He didn’t have any kind of experience using the vehicle, but he was sure that he could use it properly. He swung the top arm of the vehicle around and it scraped across the top of my roof, tearing off some of the shingles. I was furious with my neighbor, but he agreed to pay for Queens NY roof repair since the whole thing was his fault.

I was this close to suing my neighbor for the incident with my roof. He always does these kinds of absent minded things without thinking about the possible consequences. He was lucky that it was just my roof that was damaged. If something had gone really wrong with the vehicle, he could have collapsed the roof on me and I might have died. He could have also thrown himself from the vehicle and died of his own stupidity. Continue reading “A Dangerous Neighbor Wrecked My Roof”

Our Garage Roof Shingles Were Done Before Noon in One Day

I looked out the bathroom window upstairs a few mornings ago when I heard our dog barking at something from our fenced in yard. I did not see what the dog was barking at, but I did see missing shingles and plenty of weathering on our garage roof. We had the house roof done a year and a half ago, and now it was definitely time to get the garage roof shingles replaced. We called the same company that does roof installation in Brooklyn NY to come out and do our garage. They work very fast, and I was impressed to not find a single roofing nail or piece of old shingle laying around anywhere after they were done. I even got up on a ladder and took a look to see what they may have left in our gutters. They were clean as a whistle. Continue reading “Our Garage Roof Shingles Were Done Before Noon in One Day”
