You see Imperfections; I see a life lived

You don’t just stumble upon a perfect relationship.

You meet someone you can’t help but adore, whether mutually felt; they will teach you who you are based on their reflection of who they are with you.

Together, you’ll grow,

Together you wil continue to perfect something that can not be perfected.

An that’s is the beauty of two becoming us for a day or infinity;

Whether the relationship is undefined, defined or just in kind

What is large, Java Black naturally aspirated and weighed 5,512 lbs ….

it’s actually my 2007 Range Rover sport

my sweet “Jennifer Tilley” is sitting idly by as it is awaiting a new set of key transmitters

Short scenario (mind you the vehicle was brought into the dealership because Progressive chose to schedule my insurance adjuster appointment at that dealership because of Covid they were not doing house visits our location visit Surf or I had to meet at an assigned location),

I took my 2007 LR Sport HSE, into a dealership to have the insurance adjuster do a adjustment on a little fender bender or in this case the active suspension, Driver side rear wheel and rear lower fender area had damage along with rear bumper. Claims adjuster would only count for the real one shock a bumper and a repainting of the driver side rear lower fender panel.

Adjuster stated that they could not include any of this suspension items because the service department warranted that my vehicle needed these items due to the age of the vehicle not due to the accident.

Dealership quoted me $12,000 for the suspension and that it would be out of my own pocket

I stayed up until the accident my vehicle is working just fine went to go pick up a pizza and an Uber driver backed into my vehicle while it was parked deeming my vehicle stuck in the low access mode

Due to the suspension being stuck in Acess mode I had it towed into the dealership for this process and then towed home.

When the dealership was done with the vehicle they brought it up to the portico vehicle was running I took the vehicle parked it up front left it running called the tow truck company, I pulled a vehicle around to the side where the tow truck company could then load the vehicle.

The Tow truck operator place the vehicle neutral placed it up on the flatbed. Tow truck driver turn the vehicle off. Flatbed truck arrived at my driveway, check operator place vehicle in neutral rolled off my vehicle into my carport. A bit off centered but hey what it was back home safe.

When I retrieve the keys out of my vehicle I noticed that the fob is in two pieces and the reason why it was together was because it was hooked on the key ring. Attractive circuit board was not in the (KFT), key Fob transmitter; as to the reason why the driver was unable to turn on the vehicle and parked straightaway in my driveway.

Contacted dealership they had no idea what to place did not own up to the fact that the key fob was taken apart by one of their employees. After several visits several go rounds in several tow truck drop offs to their dealership and back four to be exact which means eight tow truck trips in total I am still in the same position of not having a set of keys for this vehicle is basically a giant paperweight at this point.

Does shorten the go around on this I’ve gone through all kinds of different message to figure out how in the world I’m gonna get a set of keys for this vehicle the most obvious of course was going through the dealership dealership would not get me a set of fobs finally when they did they gave me a used fob that had been assigned to another VIN number.

The GM of the store and unknowing how to spell his last name I will just call him by his first name Bruce; he stated that the fob was just fine, it had not been synced to any-one vehicle; at this point that I was to remove the existing blade from the fob, which belong to the other vehicle.

Which leads me to this post. Needless to say the fob did not sync with my vehicle causing my vehicle to go in total lockdown and now I am unable to have a set of keys for my vehicle now the dealership says I need a new CJB along with two new fobs and I am responsible for paying for this really should I have to pay for this mistake?

I stated to the general manager that this mistake was on them.

I live in Sarasota Florida

I realize there are other Land Rover dealerships that I may be able to deal with but I also know that dealerships tend to stick together when it comes to service and not wanting to work on somebody else’s mess up any input please

2020 today 1976 yesterday

This song reminded me of how I felt 1976 without even trying

I pretty much lived in every city or state that had some connection to civil rights movement.

From the South shores of Texas, the hollers of West Virginia all the way through to the bay area Mobile Alabama and all the little places in between and some not, the fine line allows very little variance between right and wrong black and white.

Sadly I do not see much difference between the first day of school in 1976 at Cherokee junior high to the day I wake up and watch the news on my cable networks we’ve got one station gaslighting while the other one is trying to put out the fire and vice a versa we need to do is just stop standstill listen to each other breathe and realize that’s why were here we all breathe the same.

May our lives move forward with a heaviest heart,

that the steps we make in our future will weigh

us down in our conscience, an that belief that

all are created equal and that we all own

Please departments need to get their S%#t together

https://bit.ly/2X4u4Ot

Years ago the police departments were made up I have a large amount of men and women who had come out of the arm services after World War II and Vietnam to serve in the civilian capacities as a police officer etc.

We have police departments that are sending people to private academy is where they’re learning deadly force is the first choice to settle It issue; meanwhile when we do use Vocabulary filled with forceful violent words to describe something harsh that we’re going through instead of using the words to step up to rise above we use words a fight and weapons in the words war come to mine often even during our COVID-19 pandemic we were fighting a war we were using weapons you know the thing is a ventilator is an a weapon ventilator is Amena later

I saw you today

I saw you today

I saw you today
It took me a monument
to realize it was you

Fresh as
If it was my first hello
Smooth
As water on a slip’n slide

I was back there
The days of
Simplicity and quiet gazes

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I’m enamored
by your ability to hold me
Without ever reaching out

Yet;
Saddened by your ability
to set fire to a room
You never intended
To be in

You never owned your
Dysfunction,
you collected glitter
and wore it as
your charmed life,
rolled though me
Like a hurricane party
on nitro

You know
One day
You would be
Standing
In the place, that space
Only you would fill
Only you could fill

That day came
It was here
Before us
Playing out
Like it did
In my mind

No disappointment
No resentment
Oddly
It was joy

I saw you today,

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I saw you, today.

Minding my own Life

Good link

Humans depend on positive thinking

Just add glue (heart not included)

holidays they’ve come and gone
And the winter months keep you on my mind

Your not on my speed dial
Your not even in my contacts
Yet you’ve been in my recent calls for days
As They turn into weeks

Would I ever know you
The way she knew you
Could spring turn to summer
Without the mention of my name

Hard to know what’s to become of me
When all you see is the me
She could never be
As you became
The one she met
And the one I know

Can you tell me
Why you can not see
Change in you
Is because of me

Comfort
Intimacy
Choices
As It’s Hard to know what’ll become of me
When all you see is the me
She could never be
As you became
The one she met
And the one I know

Would I ever know you
The way she knew you
Could spring turn to summer
Without the mention of your name

You’re not on my speed dial
You’re not even in my contacts
Yet you’ve been in my recent calls for days
As They turn into weeks

Situational empathy

How do say I understand?,

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown woman

Raised Another, of Jewish Faith

and a passive Protestant  father

Given much

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss is prevalent

and knowing that lived

on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think

I can not understand

As I am not you

I am me

Endlessly

mis-understood

Most of all

Human

How do say I understand

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown mother

Raised by a Jewish Mother

Abandoned by a passive-emotion void father

Replace by excess

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss prevalent

and knowing that

living on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think
