This is Roxy,
I’m upset, my backyard (my play area) in our spot in the RV park is a real mess ! You recall the video Gary sent you the other day showing all the hard work he did in sprucing up our RV spot and that of out neighbors. He and I were so happy that we had such a wonderful (natural mature garden) in the rear of our RV spot giving us a really nice view and affording us some privacy from other RV’s.
Well today, this is no more ! While Gary was at the gym yesterday some government contractors came in right during a down-pouring rain and decided to take out half of that garden to eventually put in a concrete pad in the RV spot to our rear. When Gary cam home and saw what they were doing he was really furious with the workers who did this. Not only did the mess up the garden but they torn up my back lawn !
Gary asked the workers why they just didn’t pour the concrete into the existing mud hole to the opposite side of the garden where one previously stood, rather to destroy half of the garden space? The said their template for laying the concrete would not entirely fit in that area. Interestingly though, when Gary saw them lay down the template today in the area where they will eventually be pouring the concrete, he realized that it would have fit in the original area and even where they currently placed it, it was upsetting to see that they really didn’t need to have removed any of the natural vegetation at all as that area was far enough away from the concrete pad mold ! This was pure stupidity on their part and it makes absolutely no sense that they did this. Stupid government contractors !!!
Also, naturally instead of carefully digging up the vegetation so that it could be transplanted to the rear of the new pad to give that area some character and appeal, they without any thought just plowed into the area and destroyed all the vegetation and took it to the dump. Government fraud, waste and abuse !!
Supposedly, the supervisor on the base that oversees these contractors from what we here is a bit of a “B…..”.. But Gary does plan to tactfully talk with her in the next few days and ask her if it is the contractors responsibility to replace the vegetation the destroyed and to fix the grass. I know….we don’t technically own any of the property here, however, as tax payers we all to some degree own a piece of government land and it should be properly protected and we should not let stupid contractors get away with leaving things in despair when they do things in such a destructive manner. It is Gary’s persistent nature to bring this to some ones attention. Naturally, the workers can go home each day and enjoy their home, but now Gary and I must look at this eyesore from our back window. It the government would supply the new vegetation or provide us some funds to fix this area, Gary would happily purchase the plants and do the labor to redo the garden. After all, he wants to keep me his cherished pet happy so my tail will continue to wag.
So as I said…Gary and I right now are not “Happy Campers”. On a brighter side we have an awesome view when looking to the front of our RV thru our dining room window. I am including a photo at the very top of this blog that I just had Gary take of the late sunset for you. Isn’t it gorgeous! So, there is always a brighter side to this story. In this case the front view of our RV.
For now I will need to be eating a lot of treat to keep my stress level down !
Have a great rest of your evenings! Ruff, Ruff !
