Our new driveway is too good to drive on. I just hope the workers will feel the same way, observe the orange posts and tape, and get their stuff off the next-door lot in the very near future.
Things still look messy, but we are quite honestly thrilled right now. Once they’ve poured the concrete on the sidewalk and we’ve fixed the lawn, everything should look quite good.
I watched The Smartest Guys in the Room yesterday. If any of the jurors at the trial starting today have seen it, Mr. Lay and Mr. Skilling are in trouble.
My verdict (yes, I’ve been completely brainwashed): GUILTY! 20 years for Skilling and 15 for Lay.
EEK! What nasty weather!
I hope none of these
pelted the Stables Habs.
Wow! We really are getting a new driveway. I’m watching the progress from work on the PantherCam. Currently they’re grading it with sand.
The foreman wasted no time grumbling to John this morning that we were getting a $10,000-driveway for nothing.
I suppose this wouldn’t be a good time to ask if they’re going to fix our lawn, too.
Guess what, Habershons! Houston has a brand new shiny football team. It’s been named the Houston 1836. Very strange name. Apparently 1836 was the year that Houston was founded.
So, do we have any good players? Does anyone recognize any of the names on the roster?
Who wants a tee shirt?
Don’t all shout at once.
Here is Alfred’s final letter to his mother.
I feel sad that this is all we’ll know about his
holiday. I wish we could see the photographs
he took, and I wish we could read the letters his
mother wrote to him.
So many unanswered questions . . .
They’re still here, damnit! January 15th has come and gone. Our driveway is now so bad that Wendy is having to sleep in the street. Click on the picture of Maggie for an ugly sight.
Actually I feel a bit sorry for the contractor. He’s obviously behind schedule and I’m sure he’s spending half his time dealing with the bitching and moaning of all the homeowners in Montrose. John and I are keeping as quiet as we can. I wave and smile at the workers every morning and just hope that they will eventually keep their promise.
Clare left on her seven-month round-the-world trip on January 15th (poor RSPB). If I get her permission, you can read all about it on Habershons.com.
. . . a very Happy New Year to everyone!
I’m here, family and faithful readers. Had the website blahs for a while and have also been on a reading binge. Thank you for not abandoning Habershons.com.
