The great James Tower, located at 1 Lake Front Drive, in Homosassa Florida, is  a 4-story, mixed-use Skyscraper that just came on the market.  James  Tower served as the headquarters for the James Gang. Additionally, it housed the penthouse  condominium residence of the building’s namesake and developer, Rusty James, who was a real estate businessman and part time thief when the tower was developed. Several members of the James family also live, or have resided, in the building. The tower stands on a plot where the Crab Shack  was formerly located.

Daily Prompt: Intense

Describe the last time you were surprised by the intensity of a feeling you had about something, or were surprised at how strongly you reacted to something you thought wouldn’t be a big deal.

Lawn Care Service

Lawn Care Service

On our last relocation, in the midst of unpacking moving boxes, I realized the lawn needed to be cut. I needed to establish a relationship with a lawn care company because I never mow my own grass. And this home had over an acre of yard to mow. So first call went like this:

Day 1:   Called number of lawn care company. Got answering machine. “Hi, you have reached Jon’s Lawn Care. Your call is very important to us so please leave your number at the beep and we will return your call as soon as possible.”

Day 2:    “Hi, you have reached Jon’s Lawn Care. Your call is very important to us so please leave your number at the beep and we will return your call as soon as possible.”

Day 3:     “Hi, you have reached Jon’s Lawn Care. Your call is very important to us so please leave your number at the beep and we will return your call as soon as possible.”

Day 4:    “Hi, you have reached Jon’s Lawn Care. Your call is very important to us so please leave your number at the beep and we will return your call as soon as possible.”

Me:        “WELL IF MY CALL IS SO DAMN IMPORTANT TO YOU WHY HAVEN’T YOU HAD THE DECENTLY TO RETURN MY FRIGGIN CALL.”

p.s. They did call back two weeks later. My wife talked to them. Lucky for them.
