It’s A Gun, Another Possible Job and Cops Hanging Up On Me.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Since the Break-In happened this past weekend things have gotten crazier at work. There was a different Padlock on the Compound Gate so I headed to the Office. Strangely the Lights were not on in Paul’s Office. I took a few Keys to try but no luck. When I returned to the Office Paul was just getting dressed. He has a Futon Bed in his Office and will occasionally spend the night. When I mentioned the New Lock he knew exactly which Key I needed. As I opened the Compound I thought it strange that he had slept so late. As I hung the Key back in the Office I noticed the Butt of a Long-Gun sticking out from under the covers where he had been sleeping. He had been on Guard Duty most of the night.

After my Morning Walk Around the plant checking the Pumps, Motors and Rollers I returned to the Compound. Even though the Image of what I had seen kept haunting me I managed to finish the Carrier Modification that Kharen had wanted so badly yesterday.

Just as I was finishing up Kharen the Supervisor started looking through the Company Toolbox looking for a Ratchet Wrench. Since I remembered him taking the last one weeks ago I mentioned it and exactly where I remembered him using it at.

Then he remembered me using a Ratchet on the 30 Horse Power Electric Motor that burnt out. “Where are those Toolshe asked.

I simply answered, “They were My Tools that got stolen on the Weekend and I can’t afford to replace them”. He walked out and never came back for the Carrier.

When I spoke to Kathy during my 1:00 lunch she mentioned that Mary from Healthy Heals had just left and her feet felt wonderful.

I returned to attaching the Aluminium Panels to the Steel Frames using Pop-Rivets for the remainder of the day. As I moved those around in the Compound I realized they had hidden the big Commercial Grade Battery Charger that’s on wheels. Otherwise that also might have been stolen.

When I arrived at the Apartment I immediately told Kathy about my observation. I then called John who had been leaving messages for me to call. He did not remember Interviewing me in the beginning of May before I started where I am. When I mentioned the name of his Supervisor and the plant layout he started remembering me and the Truck. (Everybody remembers the Truck.)

Because we were expecting other calls and Kathy had an upset tummy we had Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup along with Cheese on Crackers for supper. We topped it off with a Chocolate Pudding Cup for dessert.

Bell Wireless finally called around 5:15. I’ve mentioned that we have not able to retrieve any Voice Messages to our Home Number since the beginning of the year. Because it is a Hub it uses a Wireless Connection and the Thousands of Bell Customers using that system were all having the same problem. Unfortunately the fix was not the same for everyone but as of this evening it is now working.

Our 6 o’clock Local News announced 5 New Coronavirus Cases in the Windsor/Essex Region bringing our Active Cases to 23. How can they have 0 one day then 23 the next. The Math does not add up.

Our temperature today felt like 95 F (35 C).

Having discussed this with Kathy once the News was over I tried reporting the Long-Gun sighting to the Windsor Police Department without them using my name. I don’t want an Officer responding to a Break-In and getting shot by Paul the Owner. Sitting in the Bedroom so as not to disturb Kathy my Cell Phone kept losing its connection. In the Livingroom it worked just fine. They switched me from one department to another only for me to be disconnected for a 911 Call. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment unless it personally attacks someone for their opinion or is Spam.

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


My hairdresser is never late for an appointment.

She knows all the shortcuts.


  1. This might be one of those occasions when it is best to mind your own business.

  2. Don't go to work early or on the weekend until the gun issue is resolved
