I’m from Microsoft, NOT

Again, we got another call from this same Asian guy. He called this time and said “Hello, I am from Microsoft, and your Windows computer is sending our error messages and is infected with Malware.” He insisted that I go to my computer and connect to a website (which I did not do). He claimed they would lock…

Rain, go away

I’m sitting here in the shop today, and it won’t quit raining. The rain isn’t necessarily so bad, it is the fact that it is so cold that the rain will turn to ice and make my drive home a bad deal. This dude just called and was an Asian dude. It sounded like some kind…

…And now the gate is up

I was working today, and got a text from Dale Boyer. He asked me if I knew why there was a fence around the Rodeway Inn. I honestly have no idea why it is there, and that’s what I told him. At this point, I really do not care about the place; as I am ready…

New Job?

Today was the start of a new job. I work at American Fire Protection in Nampa, Idaho, doing the bookkeeping and payroll as well as other office tasks. Originally, I went in for the interview yesterday and was offered the job right away, without really an official interview. I was going to turn it down,…

Hotel Cleanup Day 4

A very somber day today. As I pulled in today, even more was gone.  The wagon out front of the hotel. The shed in the alleyway was gone. The only purpose in my visit today was for Chris to come and pickup the walk-in freezer which he purchased at the auction.

Hotel Cleanup Day 3

The auction is over with. I had to go down to the Hotel today from 9am, until who knows how late so that this Industrial Hygiene guy can finish his inspection. In the back of my mind, I really don’t care because I am wanting to be done with this whole Hotel thing.

Auction Day 2

Another very interesting day today. The live auction happened yesterday, and today is the 2nd and final day for people to pick up their purchases. Today, Dale and I are here until 6pm. In addition to that, Chris Peters, from AMRESCO Commercial Finance wanted us to drain the remainder of the pool today. I showed…

Auction Day 1

Today was day one of the Auction at the Rodeway Inn. The auction is being put on by Corbett Auctions from Kuna. There are a lot of mixed emotions today. There were a lot of items that went for cheaper than I expected, and other items that went for more than I expected. I bought…

Auction Preview

Today was the preview for the Auction to be held at the Rodeway Inn. A very interesting day, to say the least. A very large number of people coming through the Rodeway to preview things and check out what is available for the Auction tomorrow. Some people had no clue and were not really very bright…
