Have We Been Duped?

By
Home Inspector with JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC HOI 394

If you have been a member of Active Rain for a while you've probably run across Nutsy S. Wallenda, Steven Smith's certifried home inspection assistant. Nutsy's a self proclaimed adventurer, entrepreneur and all around mans man. He's without question quite an interesting character...at least in his mind. Recently the nutty one has been, according to him, taming bare in Alaska.

I'm here to say to you Nutsy, poppycock! Rounding up bare indeed.

CarRecently as I was driving down the Wilbur Cross Parkway here in Connecticut on my way to an inspection (when Nutsy was purported to be in Alaska) I was startled by a car whipping past me at break neck speed. The vehicle was moving around the road like a pinball swerving into my lane nearly clipping my bumper. This crazy fools maneuvering resulted in me stringing together some colorful descriptions of his ancestry while simultaneously flying the one finger salute.

Suddenly the license plate caught my eye. It wasn't really that hard to miss since it was filling up a good part of my view since this idiot's rear end was in my face.

I did a double take, no it couldn't be.

Let me stop here for a moment and rewind. Nutsy and I have had what may be best termed a love hate relationship. I love barbequed squirrel Nutsy hates being cooked. We have exchanged verbal barbs for some time now. I assumed it was all bluff and no bite...until earlier this summer when I became aware I was being watched. My belief is Nutsy's animosity may have begun when I was in Seattle in June.

Seeing the plate I immediately fumbled around on the passenger seat for my camera. Finding it I extracted the camera from its case while keeping one hand on the wheel. The car was now gaining distance so I had to work fast. I flipped the camera on and popped it on the dash board in front of me to steady it. I fingered the zoom control to zero in on the plate and pressed the shuttered button.

vanity plateThis picture of the vanity plate tells the story. As I said before, I believe I have been targeted and this is further proof.

My suspicion is the Alaska story was a ruse to set up an alibi for Nutsy while he tried to expunge me from existence. Fortunately his plans are big on ambition and small on planning. How dumb do you have to be to buy a car, register it with a vanity plate while on a covert mission to terminate your target with extreme prejudice?

Nutsy, you better watch your back my furry little fiend.

Mr James,

I believe that I must clarify. I understand your confusion. My cousin Nutsy was taming bars in the great white north. However, I had a major concert performance in your area that very day and I was running late. When one commands the fees that I command -- being able to fill a hall with my voice even with no amplification -- it is important to get to a venue on time. I had been out late the night before, for health reasons.

I sincerely appologize if I nearly clipped you, however Nutsy had nothing to do with it other than he allowed me to borrow his auto while he was in the tundra. I had not realized that it took so long to get from the west coast to your neck of the woods.

If you give me your address, and visa card number (for shipping charges only) with the expiration date and that little number off the back of the card, I will be glad to send you a free CD of mine to more than make up for your fright.

James,

As usual, Charlie is talking through his hat based on having about 20% of the facts. I am sure that Nutsy was not involved and, at the fees Wheat is paid for a gig, you would certainly understand his need to get there on time.

Mr James,

You can take my word for it, I have much more important things to do than scaring you half to death.

Nutsy,

Ralph, You're right, I might be ticketed for distracted driving.

Michael, What kind of critters are we talkin' here?

Debbie, Near as I could tell. He blew by my so fast I didn't get a good look. Of course the plate is a give away.

Charlie, You and I have been onto him from the start. And I prefer skewer than to foil.

Wheatmouth, Your loyalty, unlike your singing, is to be admired. I'm not buying your story. You two are in cahoots.

Nutsy, You are a bear faced fibber.

That car is leaning to the left, due to a heavy load.  I wonder if Nutsy brought a bear back from Alaska, trained to drive a car?

I assure you, Mr Jay, that these others are out of line and out on a limb. I am not responsible for Mr James constant whining or in the past.

James, how can you accuse my godson of such a thing as driving crazy.  He would never do anything to hurt another person.  He is gentle, kind and honest.  If he says he didn't do it, he didn't.  Now that Wheatloaf, on the other hand, is a hell-raiser supreme.  He confessed to doing it.  But he's a liar in addition to many other things.  So if he said he did, he probably didn't.  I think it was a Nutsy fan who has a Nutsy vanity plate.  I under stand they've been selling rapidly because of his famousity.  You and Mr C need to quit being jealous of my godson.

Godmother,

There are a few home inspectors on here, Mr James being one of them, who are very jealous of other superior beings in the field who also are here and who out perform and outsmart them on a daily basis. And I am one of the superior beings who is being picked on. Thank you for your support. They are green with envy.

Jim, No offense, but I may have to delete your comment. I don't want to give Captain mush-for-brains any ideas. :)

Jay, That is certainly possible, unless Steve bound and tied in the trunk.

Wheatmouth, I lost my card.

Barbara, Your loyalty is like a mother bears. There is nothing I can say that would convince you of your godsons' dastardly deeds, but be assured I speak the truth.

Nutsy, I'm green all right. Green from retching.

James, thank you for that compliment.  Protecting Nutsy from jealous home inspectors who can't possibly check attics and crawl spaces as well as he can is my pleasure.  He can also do the inspection faster and clean cobwebs with his tail as he zips around.  Can you and Mr C top that?

Oh Mr James,

You are probably itching because you brought bed bugs home after sleeping in a house you were supposed to be inspecting. Has Nutsy got that figured right or what?

Nutsy, the sleuth

Nutsy, Your powers of deduction are as fine as your reading ability.
