Tana finally moving to Puyallup (and buying a house) this month

09 June 2017 - 09:52 PM

I finally found a house not far from downtown Puyallup, just off River Rd, going towards Tacoma.  A bit of a fixer inside but super nice neighborhood and it has a 3 CAR GARAGE!  Got to have our priorities!

Lots of issues trying to get this darn place to close and now possibly issues with the sellers maybe NOTmoving their stuff out which includes a dead truck inside a garage, boat & trailer and other junk.  I sure don't want to deal with vehicles with no titles.  Sellers had moved out but just MOVED BACK IN, which has me worried. 

So possibly this place could close between the 16th to the 20th of this month.  I am currently just off Green Valley Road near Flaming Geyser state park.  I cannot move into the new house at closing as I  am hiring a contractor/painter to do some clean up and painting and possibly get some carpets replaced.  My landlord decided to put this place up for sale at a ridiculous price for a home with many serious problems so I have to be out of here by the end of this month too.

I may be looking for some help as soon as this home closes.  I have most everything packed up (still working on the parts and garage stuff) and there are no more large car parts, (except a few bumpers and one nice dash) just all small parts in boxes.  I have sold most of my outside things too.  Trying to simplify.

My health is better but this rare auto immune illness will never go away and I just had another CHEMO  treatment a few days ago.  I still have lots of fatigue, pain and other issues but want to keep doing the things I love to do and hanging out with friends and family.

I would so appreciate any moving help at all as soon as the house closes!  It is not a very long drive but must NOT been done during afternoon rush hour traffic...found out that is just a mess on any road going that way at that time of day. 

We will be moving as much stuff as possible into the large garage and storage shed in the backyard.  Cannot put anything in the actual house so the contractors can get their work done asap.  I cannot be exposed to fumes, dust or paint or I could get very ill again. 

If anyone has even a few hours to spare to help out, please let me know.  I still could use help packing small car parts boxes into bigger crates and boxes.  It is painful for me to lift much.  Please email me at:  vindats@yahoo.com or contact me on here.  Landline:  360 469 4187,  thanks Datsun buddies,  Tana 

Tana busy for a bit, drug addict burned house down next door

17 February 2017 - 02:10 PM

hi folks, so if I don't get back to you immediately it is because I am busy trying to help rehome the animals that belonged to the drug addict.  Police hinted that it was a meth cooking accident.

I saw a huge fireball shoot out the back of the house and blow out all of the windows and then when I was rushing around to get my dogs and me out to my car another huge fireball blew out the front and blew out all of the windows.  

Now I have issues with my lungs due to the smoke I inhaled, so on my way to an urgent care office to get treatment. 

Plus so many people have been coming over and trying to talk to me, that I am just getting worn out.  I really do not care that the druggies burnt down their house.  Police said to watch out for the druggies coming back and looters and I don't care either if that place gets looted.  Busy enough trying to care for the poor animals that were left behind and animal control will not do anything...usual for them.  

Talk to you all soon. Tana

old guy in Seattle needs possible heater help on his Datsun( from Tana)

05 January 2017 - 09:25 PM

hi folks, many years ago I drove to Wallingford, just north of downtown Seattle and repaired (by myself) this older guy's split fuel filler hose on his Datsun, either a 710 or 810 wagon.  He was the nicest guy, retired, not much money at all however.  Now he says his heater is not working and the mechanic wants loads of money to fix it, not actually knowing the situation.  Possibly stuck valve?   Or heater core needs taken out and rebuilt?  He can pay a bit but not alot.  I can give his name and number if anyone might be willing to put on Datsun angel wings and go and give him a call and a visit.  His mechanic told him to give up the Datsun but he "really loves" his Datsun wagon and I would hope he could keep it at least a few more years to bring him some happiness. 

Please write me at:  vindats@yahoo.com   if you might be able to help him out.  I would, but my health as most of you have heard is not so good these days.  I still love to play with car parts and sell some parts and take care of my pets, but can't do what I used to be able to do.  Feel free to send me an email and just say hello too!  Thanks, Tana Bryan    home phone:  360 469 4187, living south of Auburn, Wa.
