well, there's an update on the " welcome to saxonburg- trash house"
i went to her house today and crawled (and i mean that literally) to her front door.
when i found it (the door) i knocked and she yelled "just a minute"- she had to make her way thru the path that i could see inside- "stuff"piled almost to the ceiling! i introduced myself to her and told her i had talked to the women's club pres. and they were willing to come help with the "project". she teared up and i hugged her and told her it would be all right. here are some of our conversation points:
she is trying to get a lawyer so she can get an extension on the 10 days for a cleanup. (apparently 3 years wasn't enough time) .
she doesn't think she needs a dumpster (she needs the large, construction type).
she is diabetic and has an open toe. (what the ...)
she was told that she will be fined $1000.00 if this isn't done in 10 days.
she has gone through alot of the stuff, but needs to go thru it all. she doesn't want people to just throw everything away- willy-nilly.
the boxes are not empty- i felt one it was heavy.
she wants to burn the boxes etc-(major fire with smouldering wet boxes - smoke and angry(er) neighbors). that's why she doesn't think she needs a dumpster.
she hasn't called about the dumpster yet because that takes a lot of time and that's time that she could be going thru her stuff (but isn't).
she had shoulder surgery recently... ???????(and your point is?)
i gave her my number and told her to call me as soon as she got the dumpster committed- told her next tues or thurs. would be good for me. now we'll see if that happens - i may have to take another trip over there in a few days. keep your fingers crossed.
