I LOVE storms--but became a little concerned when the heavy rocker flew off the porch and landed 30 feet away. A friend asked if I got in the cellar and I laughed and told her by the time I realized how bad it was I would have blown away had I dared walk out to the cellar and for sure drowned! Thankful--it all ended well here--no power for 5 hours and a messy yard were all the ill effects suffered in the bungalow. Some parts of the city---very close to me did not fair quite so well.
Meanwhile---the neighbors in the hood are once again up in arms---I decided you should see some of the emails that have been flying-
A couple of months ago, someone left their pets' poo on the right of way in front of our house. We live near the corner of Edwin & Jerome. Bc we have a single driveway, my husband moves my car out of the way every morning and parks it in the street. As we are rushing out the door for school, my kids stepped in it and then got in the car. They tracked it EVERYWHERE. It was so gross. Needless to say, I chalked it up to just my luck, put a sign in my yard, and moved on. Then, it happened to my neighbor yesterday!!!!! They spent 30 minutes cleaning shoes, their car's floor, and the kids' costumes they were supposed to wear yesterday. I felt so bad for her!!! They were late on top of that.

Put a camera on the situation. My neighbor did that and it worked!The other day I observed a man just letting his dog linger in that same area you are talking about in front of my house.. True it is public property but AS A COURTEOUS NEIGHBOR the dog owner is to cliean up their dog's mess.

And then there is Halloween coming just around the corner---I got the creative bug and this was the result-
TALKING ABOUT A BAD HAIR DAY!
