General Grant did not stay in my house
July 22, 2021
To The Eagle:
Enough is enough. I am a 100% service-connected permanent and totally disabled Army Veteran (you're welcome). I moved to Cathlamet because I thought, way out here, people would leave me well enough alone, and mind their own business. Boy-Howe-D, did I get that wrong! Where to start? Although many of you are old as mud and will be soon pushing up daisies, that does not make you history buffs.
General Grant did not stay in my house, before or during the Civil War. I know this, because my house was not built until after the Civil War, 10 years after the Civil War. In fact Washington State did not play any role in the Civil War. One battle was fought in Washington Territories in what is now Idaho.
You know what else is not?
My house is not on the historic register.
Not eligible to be. As it has new electric, indoor plumbing, drywall, new fixtures, and get this, modern appliances.
Not a Doumit house.
They are a huge local family, chances are your house was owned or occupied by one of them at one time also.
My easement is not a public walkway or city road, nor a place for you to take your dog to go to the bathroom. My side yard is not the place to stream pornography on the library’s free wifi.
The property behind my easement is not the city’s. It's, get this, my backyard.
I was going to paint my house a normal color, however because many of you could not keep your opinions to yourselves, I simply will not!
