Barn Stress and a Scam
As winter moves in
my body being one.
I saw this on fb the
other day and thought
I would share.
Keep in mind that if you
with a chronic illness,
chronic pain this
is their life.
Now....keep in mind that
stress plays with
And I have been dealing
with stress this
At the barn where
Misfire stays there
are other folks that rent
stalls there also.
Jeanna - she manages the barn
even though it is owned by
my friend Chris. She.
has one horse there -
(one with diamond on
Tim - Him and Jeanna
used to stall at another
barn together. He has
one horse - Lily.
And Mr. Eddie, he has
two horses there.
and Fed Ex
(the other black horse
in the pick with Black).
Brenda - she has Stormy
And Roxy that I don't have
a pic of.
And of course
Anyway...they have been
at the barn for a yr now. We
share feeding days and
a friend of Jeanna's keeps
the stalls cleaned.
Tim and Brenda
split morning feedings
and letting the horses out
to the pasture.
Jeanna and I split evening
feeds and bringing
the babes in.
Well last week, I get a
text from Jeanna stating
that her, Tim and Mr. Eddie
were leaving the barn.
The place they used to
stall has been bought by
someone and they asked
Jeanna to manage. She
brought all the others
over with her so they
are all going back except
for Brenda. Her and Jeanna
rub each other the wrong way.
So now...I worry and stress
on Chris getting more
folks in the barn and
will they be willing to
split feedings like we have
Until that point, starting
Nov. 1 I will be going over
and letting Misfire out
each morning and putting her
back come evening.
Feed, water and hay her.
This will add more stress
to my body.
Chris keeps telling me it will
all work out but the thing here
is he don't have to worry about
it other than getting someone in
there. He don't mess with the
horses, he don't have to feed.
If that was not enough to deal
So I am walking into the funeral home today,
hour before the funeral and I get a call from my
mom. She is very serious and says that there is
an emergency and she needs me to come help.
No other clue. I get over there and she begins to
explain to me that she got a call from my grandson,
he took off to a funeral of a friend that OD in TX.
He borrowed his gf's car and wrecked it, hitting a
pregnant woman and he has been arrested. Bail 90
thousand and to get him out it will cost 9000 bucks
. I freak so we head to my daughters work to find out what
is going on. Amber is straight faced and tells me Caleb
is at home. I can tell by the look on her face that this
is true. Then it hits me...I have heard about this on .
the news, its a scam. Well, mom did not give any info,
no credit card # or anything. Said the kid was crying
so hard that she thought it was Caleb. She did
however get the Public Defenders (so he said)
name and number. David Miller 321-754-4695.
I called him and it comes up as Orlando Fl. It
goes to voice mail so I left a message explaining
who I was and that I knew this was a scam and I.
was headed to the police. I called right back
and told him I was after his ass. I planned
on calling every so mins to wear him out only
the 3rd time I find my number has been blocked.
Mom however has not so she called to tell him
that she has his money and where should she
send it. She is waiting his call. She plans on
telling him that the police is holding his money
and he needs to call them! This is called the
grandparent scam. When mom got the call .
from "Caleb", it came from one number and
mom had to call this David Miller. So she
had two numbers...the one from the boy came
out of Mexico, she called it back and a woman
answered telling mom that no one called her
from there. And of course like I said, Miller's
says Oralando. Beware everyone.....after
going to Amber Howells (daughter)
work, then to the
police department to file a report I still
made it back in time for the funeral.
