I don’t want to spend more than I really need.
It was much warmer, or should I say less cold today. We even got some sunshine but a nasty wind destroyed any kind of nice winter weather feeling. I had planned to take a long walk on the bog today but the wind made it shorter. It was fine as long as the trees took most of the wind though. I think we need one more week of cold weather until I can say it’s perfectly safe to walk there. Well I walk the same path every time I’m out there so I know where to walk without stepping down in to deep holes. They might not be so deep that risk drowning, but it’s pretty nasty cold in those holes now and it isn’t nice to walk wet in cold weather 🙂 🙂 🙂
A neighbor came yesterday and told me that there had been a meeting about us getting municipal water and sewer to the village. I have perfect water so I don’t feel that I need it but many in the village have not too good water so I can understand that they want it. But then I realized that it would cost somewhere between 150 000 Swedish kronor (21500 US dollars) to 300 000 ( 43 000) so I feel I don’t need it at all and really don’t care about those neighbors that wants it. Well they need a new meeting with all us villagers when they know the actual cost and then most of us has to agree to get it before I need to worry. Some have more than one property in the village and their cost would be astronomical.
I guess You wonder about that woman and the stolen commuter rail? It turns out that she most likely didn’t steel it at all, in fact it was most likely an accident due to carelessness. The woman had cleaned the train and was going out through the drivers space. What she didn’t know was that the key to the engine still was placed in the console and that the gear was set to driving too. She had to push the seat towards what they call dead mans grip, the accelerator that goes back if the driver doesn’t push it forward. Unfortunately for her she then pushed that grip with the drivers chair’s back support to full speed when she tried to get out and the train started to move.
I can imagine the panic she had when the train started to move without a driver in it. I’m not sure if I would have thought of the emergency brakes then. I do hope she will recover fully, she got badly injured when the train hit that house. It’s time to make some supper and then I’ll watch Ink Master on channel six.
Have a great day!
