Apartment Life #284


This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that have gone on in and around my apartment complex and in my neighborhood in the past 25 years that I've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 25 years here in a weekly blog post.  

There have been so many military helicopters flying around lately but this one in particular was flying in circles about 2 streets from me for a while one morning. 

I think it's a Blackhawk helicopter but I'm not completely sure. I'm used to seeing them fly by but when this one started flying in circles a couple of streets over, I took a picture.

The cars were in the way when the police showed up and arrested a methhead who was yelling at someone down the street. But you can see the flashing lights from the police car. 

And I got a picture of the police car as it was leaving with the woman who was arrested.


I heard my neighbors dog having a complete meltdown. I was getting ready to call the police because I thought she might be hitting her dog again. Then I saw 2 Animal Control officers dragging the dog *Chop* out with 2 catch poles. And yes, you might remember that this same neighbor called animal control to come get this same dog a few months ago because the dog growled at her. *eyeroll*

So she called them again! I have no idea what for this time. Hopefully Animal Control has better sense than to let the husband come get the dog two days later like he did the last time and bring him home again. Maybe the dog will find a better home. These people should be barred from having any animals. 
One of my other neighbors was outside yelling at the owner to at least come walk the dog to the truck so it wasn't having a meltdown but she didn't. Oh man, my other neighbor was mad that they called and had their dog taken away again.  She was outside telling anyone outside that the dogs owner is a piece of crap, on drugs and a b*tch. Oh she was mad. Not that I blame her, that was a messed up thing to do once, let alone twice.


On Sunday I was busy trying to find an Emergency Veterinarian Hospital open but the one I found charged $350 just to be seen. So I waited until Monday to call Falcor's regular Vet but they didn't have an opening for 2 weeks. They referred me to a different veterinary animal hospital and they were able to get me in on Tuesday morning at 8AM. Turns out Falcor had an infected anal gland and they cleaned him up, flushed the wound and sent me home with antibiotics, pain meds, anti inflammatory meds and some cream.  He should be good and all healed in 2 weeks. 

The Veterinarian room. 

But that's why I didn't have time to put together Happy Raturday or My Favorite Song this week. I've been getting very little sleep because Falcor wakes up and needs cuddles or is just not comfortable. Sometimes he wakes up and and walks around bumping into things with the cone. 

Poor Falcor has to wear a cone for two weeks. 

I bought a footless pajama for Falcor so he could have some relief from the cone for a while. Well, he outsmarted me by finding a way to stick his head up through the leg hole and get at his wound. He outsmarted me. lol He's cute though.

The high this week was 98F/36C
The low this week was 73F/22C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.
