Ok, to clarify on the street name thing: It was officially named after my father when they first did the 911 system. That was before our neighbor owned land out here. He was best friends with the chief of police who introduced us. The neighbor wanted to raise cattle and the land he bought wasn't large enough. He asked if he could graze his cattle on our land in return for helping to repair fences. Chief vouched for him so we agreed.
When we got notified we were being transferred overseas we didn't want to sell the farm so we had our lawyer draft a lease for the neighbors (who had bought a parcel of land 1/4mile from our property). Deal was that they would maintain the house & property, take care of our livestock, etc while they built their own house on their property. They built a house for the older son but at some point they stopped paying rent and seemed to think they could get squatter's rights to our house. They went to a police juror who did not have jurisdiction over our area and had him print a street sign with the neighbor's name on it. They took down our sign and put up theirs. The change was never official or legal. When we came back, we contacted the correct police juror who was unaware of the change and said it was illegal so he had it changed back. They immediately shot the sign full of holes so it had to be replaced. They stole it when my father died so we had to get it replaced again. Then they shot that one up so it had to be replaced. Right after their old man died, our sign disappeared again. Pretty sure it was them. I think they are trying to have Scotty (the police juror who helped them before & who does not have jurisdiction) change the sign to their old man's name again.
Their family and my family are the only ones who live down this road.
I called my police juror this morning but he didn't pick up. Not sure if he knew who was calling or if he was just busy. Other than him, I'm not sure who to contact about my missing road sign that makes it difficult to get packages. Back when we got the place we could not get any deliveries of any sort out here. But if they change the road name it will screw things up for google earth, gps, postal service, ups, fedex, etc. Plus I don't think they can legally change it without our consent. So, they may be trying to get the sign changed illegally.
After the futile calls I went into town and painted the cabinet at my friend's house. Stayed long enough to do a 2nd coat. I didn't paint the underside because he'd already mounted an LED light there and my back stopped cooperating. Went to the grocery store. Forgot to go to the post office (which caused mom to have a temper tantrum) and then came home.
