A little surprise...

So, as I said yesterday, I had spent several wonderful days in Alaska last week... Someplace I'm definitely going back to soon. Beautiful scenery, even more beautiful tourguide... I really didn't want to leave, but it's always those little pesky things in life that get in the way of fun like food, shelter and other things like that.
So after a wonderful time I had an extremely long flight back to Florida and by the time I got back to town after spending over twelve hours in aircraft and airport terminals across the entire North American continent all I wanted to do was take a long hot shower and crawl into bed but I had a little surprise waiting for me upon my arrival home...

This is what my condo should look like outside. A really nice screened-in patio that keeps the mosquitoes at bay... nice roof to keep the afternoon rains out, a really nice place where I can drink my morning coffee and have a smoke before work... A place where I can BBQ without fear of being eaten alive by massive swarms of carnivorous mossies... But as I parked my truck in the carport and walked around the corner of my building I had a little present waiting for me.
Lovely, isn't it? Apparently, the condo association decided that since one of the screens in another unit in my building were destroyed by hurricane Wilma last year, they were having all of the units' screens and roofs replaced to bring it up to Florida code... Without any notice at all. What pisses me off more than the no notice is that the workmen who apparently did the demolition on my unit left a total mess and didn't even bother cleaning any of their shit up.
Not only did they leave their shit laying around, apparently they didn't bring all the materials they'll need to complete the job so will be back to finish later next week... After I start work on the midnight shift... So they'll be banging and drilling away when I'll be in bed.

Ranger Tom is not happy about this clusterfuck one little bit.

Can you say "What the fuck?"

Anyway, to see more pictures of my trip to Alaska scroll down to yesterday's post. I'll be posting more later on in the week. Seems the pictures of the moose I took down the street from my beautiful tourguide's house are too dark... They came out on her camera though and she's going to be emailing them to me later this week so I'll post them then.

Sucks about the porch!!!! What a crappy way to end an otherwise great trip.

But I have to say that I am amazed that the picture through the windshield turned out as well as they did.

The pictures of your trip are fabulous. Makes a person want to go. Too bad about the porch though. My fixed income mom-in-law lives in Deltona, and after the hurricane they raised the condo dues by a couple hundred bucks - can you believe it?

I'll sing along with the chorus too - what a bunch of fuckers! Assholes.

Maybe you can install an air horn on your rig, find out where they live, go by their house when they're trying to sleep practice your intersection horn-blowing technique.

Dickheads.

Was anything stolen? That would've been my concern. Damn, I can't believe they didn't give yall any notice whatsoever.
