Chilli The Chinchilla

Adventures In Maid Service

One of the things that is really fun about doing maid service is getting to see many different pets and I have a load of cats and dogs in my life as well as many other kinds of pets.

This is the tale of Chili the chinchilla.

This is Chili.



He belongs to one of our newer customers and is very friendly.

He also enjoys rolling around in his little ball.


Sadly, a couple of weeks after filming this little video, when we got to our customers home we discovered Chilli had past away. And by discovered I mean that our team was the first ones to see that Chilli had passed.


RIP Chilli

When we told the lady of the house what we had discovered she informed us that Chilli had been their daughters pet and that she was at camp and would not be home until the following day.

The daughter is between 11 and 12 years old, her brother is between 8 and 9 years old. When the son heard about Chilli he started to put together a little box with all of his sisters favorite treats. He also made her a condolence card to giver her when she got home from camp and found out about Chilli.

It makes me feel good to see this kind of caring between siblings it is so rare.

The Morning After



 Write Now Prompt: July 8, 2014


Aaron woke with a start, thinking that he had over slept and had that panic adrenaline going through his veins. He immediately looked at his alarm clock, it was only 5:15am but he felt like he was already hours behind schedule.


He started to get dressed and wondered about Roger and whether he had found his keys and got back to his hotel. “I should go over to the construction site and find out” Aaron thought.

He looked out the window to see if the storm had passed and whether or not if there was any damage to his property. As he was looking he remembered about setting up the room to try meditating and gave it a thought that maybe he should give it another try.

Aaron picked up his copy of Spirits Among Us to read the chapter on meditating as he was heading to the room he decided to use for meditating and realized that he had not heard from Roger. He checked his voice mail to see if he had called and found he had not.

He decided to take a ride out to the construction site and see if he had found his lost keys and if not to give him an extra set of eyes to look for the keys.

After breakfast Aaron headed out the door and took a walk around his yard to access the damage from the nights storm. Other than some broken branches on a tree or two and his yard furniture blown around there seemed to be no apparent damage.

Feeling satisfied all was well he headed for his car. That was when he saw something a bit unexpected. There was a knife sticking out from one of the tires of the car. “Damn” Aaron thought, “that must have been some crazy wind out here last night”.



Thinking how lucky he was to have driven the site truck home the night before he hopped into the drivers seat of that truck and drove off to the site to see how Roger had faired the night before.



Remember to check out more from Aaron and all the gang over at the Adult Pool with CeeLee.

Winnipesaukee Weekend


In my continuing weekend adventures this summer I spent a weekend on Lake Winnipesaukee in the lakes region of New Hampshire. I stayed at the Tilton Inn in the Sanborn Room which was rumored to be haunted by a young, mischievous girl.

While at the lake I took a ride on the Mt Washington, the main reason I took this little weekend.


The day was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, the sky was clear and the temperature was at a comfortable level. Some great views while out on the lake.


While out on the lake we passed a bunch of different islands but this one caught my attention when I saw a for sale sign on it. Unfortunately I did not get my camera up quick enough to get the sign itself.



So anyone interested in getting their own island check out Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.

All in all it was a good way to spend an afternoon.

Adventures In Maid Service


Adventures In Maid Service

This is an introduction to a feature I will be doing here on Random Thoughts. It may also be considered a little about me page as well.

For a living I work in my family’s maid service company, by company I mean there are five of us who are part of the company.  Mom does the books, dad is the head of operations, I am second banana which basically means that I am operations and one of my cousins and her husband round out the full crew.

Cleaning houses is our main function but with it are also some other cleaning type functions. New constructions, janitorial jobs, spring and fall cleans and just “we are having a party could we get out house cleaned” cleanings.

In my work I get to meet many people, see many different homes and also come across some interesting stories. My intent with Adventures in Maid Service is to give some of these stories a place to be seen.

I will be telling stories that may be funny, crazy or just really heart felt stories as they come to me,
