The garage is going up tomorrow. The cement slab was laid yesterday. I have
met some of the workers and they are nice, hard-working guys. The construction
just began last week. There is some flak from some neighbors. They sort of
like to jibe in odd ways. One came over and said, What the hell is Rick doing
now but that the noise didn't wake her up. Her construction project, adding a
kitchen addition to the back of her house took 9 months and we never
complained. Then, she put some sort of 30-foot trailer in her backyard to
store forever. She told my husband that she'd shoot anyone who complained
about it. The one next door is keeping her eye on us, I know. She had three
large dogs and a dog run on the south side of my house where I can smell the
poop. Recenty, a woman came over who'd rescued these dogs when they got loose
and peeked in the dog run and said Wheow!! She had mentioned before that she
could hear our tiny bird sing from her house. Then, the neighbor on the north
side of our house had issues with moving one dumpster over to his side during
just this construction (like, this will be done this week, it's not forever).
We had two dumpsters behind our house for years and that's just how it goes.
They can smell but no big deal.
Then you ask me why I don't live here,
Honey, how come you don't move.
