First thing this morning I had to talk to Steve and let him know what was coming down upon him. I thought I will get him in my car and talk to him while I go out before work and feed my friends goats. I went banging on the door of the airstream at a quarter to 7 and no answer. He was already out walking the streets or in Safeway getting his morning coffee. I crused over to the Safeway parking lot where I was sure he was in a safe place (joke) and found him there.
I rolled my window down and told him to get in the car, I had to talk to him about important matters.
He actually got in which surprised the bajibas out of me. I have offered him rides before and he always turned them down. He new something was wrong by the tone of my voice, I am sure.
So driving out on a cold autumn grey morning I told him what was going on. Oh he was so apologetic it hurt me. It wasn't his fault!
We offered him to stay in our house in what we call the office for a place to sleep. I told him that we didn't want him out side in the cold.
He said he would seek around to see what he could do.
To make along story short:
He loved the goats and had a good time getting out of town.
He cleared his stuff out of the airstream and put it all in our greenhouse and we put his sleeping bag in the office.
I took off for work and told him our door was open and I got off work a 5:30.
I got home to an empty house.
I don't know where he is at but he promised to be at our house on Thanksgiving.
I hope so.

My heart hurts for this man. I'm so pissed off at the city for making this into something out of nothing. What do they care that he's sleeping in a trailer, on YOUR property. I hope he does show up for Thanksgiving.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this for him. I wish there were more people like you out there. (Hugs)Indigo
