When I called Mark this evening, he was in Forsyth, GA. I asked him to tell me stories I could pass along. He had a really funny one from today…
A while back, Mark did some work on his motorcycle. He had to take the gas tank off to do the work, so first he drained the gas into a gas can. There was rust floating around in the gas and everything. So where do you dispose of bad gas? He didn’t have time to try to figure that out, so he’s been hanging onto it.
He said that last night while he stayed in the Walmart parking lot in Florida, there were a couple kind of beat up cars parked on either side of his motorcycle trailer and there was a guy sleeping in each of the cars. Mark didn’t happen to notice anything unusual this morning, but when he stopped at a rest stop and did a walk around of the RV and trailer, he noticed that the gas can that had been holding the bad gas was missing from the trailer. He thinks one of the guys that spent the night next to him stole it to fuel up their car. Be sure your sins will find you out!
Other than that, he said he cheered when he crossed into Georgia. He disliked Florida last year when we were there, and his stay there this year didn’t endear it any more to him than before.
He thinks the temperatures got up into the 90’s today.
I asked him if he’s taken any pictures I can share. He has taken a few of wildlife:
For my part, I had set myself a project when I transferred to the downtown H&R Block office of making their connect calls for them. These are calls to past clients to see if they are ready to have their taxes done yet, and I had completed all the connect calls at the Tigard office about a month ago. The downtown office had had no one to do it for them, so I’ve been working on it and I finally finished today!
The next project that I started today is fixing their files. This office hasn’t really had anyone to tell them how things are supposed to be done to be in compliance with the rest of the district. I told them when I first transferred over, but by then, there were a whole lot of files done wrong. I got through B today on fixing their files.
These projects are my way of staying busy. I didn’t have to work so hard to stay busy at the Tigard office because there the phones were always ringing and people were always walking in. The downtown office is in a great location, but it’s a lot quieter than where I was before. I’m actually enjoying the peace, but I do like to stay busy and help out where I can. I don’t know what I’ll do with myself when I finish this filing project. I keep hearing that this office gets really busy toward the end of the season. Maybe that will happen soon!
