Orchids and Onions: Monday, January 7, 2019

January 7, 2019 GMT

Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Onions to the snowbirds who think it is OK to use the hospital emergency room for their primary doctor’s office, making the rest of us really sick people wait for hours.

Orchids to all the unhappy and frustrated complainers that continue to offer up onions regarding...Words to an old song about “cold outside” and small kids, safety improvements on Lake Havasu Avenue, and of course the post office.

Onions to “Baby it’s cold outside.” I realize you heard the story through the media and went along like the rest of the sheep. I remember the song from the Esther Williams movie and I was a preteen and did not have bad thoughts. Next on your agenda will be “Bullying Rudolph” -- media again!


Orchids to Michael Alan Furnishings. My disabled, handicapped husband depends on his lift recliner, even sleeping there. The devise that operates movement broke. Even though the chair wasn’t purchased there, Marty and his excellent crew went to work and repaired/replaced parts. All done so quickly! Such friendly, helpful business! Thank you so much.

Orchids to check out at Safeway. Always careful with my groceries and fruit is handled with care. Best in Havasu.

Onions to the new Mexican restaurant next to the gas station that gives you Happy Hour discount prices and then charges you extra for condiments so you end up paying more than regular dinner prices.

Orchids to the onion about barking dogs. If your experience is anything like ours, you will be terribly disappointed. Our south side home was terrorized by a home flipper for two years. A complaint led to a false court order because the shyster liar had some law enforcement experience. Call your Mayor.

Onions to those people who complain about boats and trailers in driveways. Most chose this beautiful city because of its recreational activities and it offers freedom from HOAs, allowing us to park our recreational vehicles conveniently on our own property.

Orchids to the VFW for a wonderful Sunday morning breakfast. A special thanks to our favorite bartender Deena and to Hank, Fred, and the volunteer kitchen workers and servers.
