Now, for the good part. Our neighbors.....come to find out, it was a dog barking device, not a camera. Didn't know until everything came to blows and we confronted them about why in the world they would do such a childish thing. They claimed Patsy's barking was driving them crazy...especially when they tried to have a party at the pond. After about 2 hours of hashing this back and forth, I finally just said "you know what kids, do what you have to do. We've been here 20-something years. You knew we had dogs when you looked at the house. If it was an issue, then you never should have bought the house. Do what you have to do, but we're not going anywhere, and we're not changing a thing". Then they said, "Ms. Vickie, maybe we over-reacted". Apologized, and all seems to be well. Praise God. That simple. I'm beginning to think this "growing old" thing might have an advantage after all ;)
I was contacted by a gentleman who is filing a lawsuit against the agency I used to work at, and he wanted me to join in. After hours spent in prayer and discussion with Jackie, I don't think this is what God wants me to do. Just looking over all the evidence I collected the years I was there brought back so much pain. I hadn't looked at all this "stuff" since I left almost a year ago to the day. The documents I had collected were all internal financially related, and really not relevant to his case anyway. I did give him some names to contact and ethic agencies to get in touch with and "wished him luck". He said he was on blood pressure medicine now, and it had only been a couple of months dealing with this situation. Imagine what kinda shape I was in after dealing with 'em for years!! And I truly appreciate the peace God has given me after I finally threw in the towel. I have to admit, tho, after allowing God to be my vindicator, it will be satisfying to see all the negative press take place....and who knows, maybe this man will actually expose all the wrong doings and make a difference. He has the money to carry this thing out. Anyway, that "season" is over for me. Praise God.
Well, hope all ya'll have been good. Supposed to be 100 degrees here today....oh brother. Let me scoot.
Love all ya'll
