Heart Assaults and Snorkeling
Sara identified as me at all over 5 AM this early morning from perform to notify me that their manager experienced endured a heart assault and they had been all in the medical center. I guess it took place proper in the workplace, and they ended up capable to transport him to the healthcare facility in a single of the employee’s cars and trucks. It is about 1 PM now, and I guess he is Ok – just currently being kept there for observation. It’s crazy how rapidly items can go south in lifetime, and the manager was blessed to have people close to him when the assault transpired. Otherwise, the complete circumstance could have ended very terribly.
Because I was up, I made a decision to blast down to Dauin and do some snorkeling. I had been there this past weekend and experienced been continuously charged by a titan triggerfish. I experienced my camera and was filming it, but got home to find out that my digicam had failed me. ? It’s possessing challenges, so I switched to my backup. Hoping to recreate the assault, I snorkeled a little bit and was equipped to uncover him. Oddly adequate, he didn’t attack me this time, and I ended up just following him about. Sigh….. On the flip side, I was ready to get some additional turtle footage. Acquiring subjected you to an countless stream of all matters turtle, I am Sure you are all thrilled with that announcement. ?
Challenging Neighbors, Part Two – the Lumberjack
Soon after the songs/sound concerns, I came property on working day from city to obtain a bunch of major palm fronds lying all around the lawn of our household. Although my memory is finding worse, not far better, I could not for the like of me keep in mind having slice down nearly anything in our property. Our neighbor was carrying out a thing upcoming doorway, and I figured I knew what was up, but I went in and questioned Sara in any case. She hadn’t found or listened to nearly anything, as she had been sleeping (bear in mind, she operates incredibly odd hours). I went back outside the house and found that “Tom” was carrying around 1 of individuals extensive poles with a chopping/pruning device at the conclusion. Not currently being the sharpest knife in the drawer, I was even so able to place 2 and 2 jointly and notice that it was he who experienced minimize down the fronds on the palm trees in OUR property. At this stage, I also recalled a prior dialogue I experienced experienced with him in which he had confided his deep-rooted hatred of palm trees – I consider it was the same discussion in which he informed me he experienced PTSD, bipolar condition and was an alcoholic. In any case, I kinda coughed to get his interest and experienced a small chat with him. It went anything like this.
“Hey, could you do me a favor and not chop down the palm fronds in our yard? We really don’t have a ton of shade on the residence as it is, and we really do not want to shed any additional.”
“Well, Ned, the fronds are only going to die anyhow.”
(Deep breath) “Tom, could you please not slash down the fronds from our palm trees?”
“They transform brown and then die, ya know….”
(Deeper breath) “Tom, remember to do not lower down the palm fronds in our yard…”
He grumbled a ultimate reply and then moved off.
The following working day, I was having a nap. I listened to a scraping sounds and assumed that it was his spouse hand washing their clothing. Quickly, I read a crash and recognized that our bed room obtained a lot brighter. Stumbliing exterior, I was met with the sight of Tom reducing down 3 palm trees in his lawn that had been offering the previous vestiges of shade to our dwelling.
Effectively, I guess he showed me…….
I could not seriously say just about anything, as they were his trees, so I just moseyed back inside of, laid down, and wished that we experienced darker curtains.
Oh, yeah – with complicated neighbors, it is definitely more enjoyable in the Philippines!!!
