He is like sleeping with an alligator!
It was decided a little excavation work needed to be done in my backyard while he was here.
Followed by a wild game safari, as he searched for the lizard who lives under the potting shelf.
During the late afternoon, we took a stroll to the neighborhood park and discovered the Mother's Mafia was meeting. While they were circled up plotting their next caper, their children were all in the drainage ditch by the railroad tracks playing--completely out of eyesight.
-AND--these neighbors--they are still gone-but still sneak by occasionally and at times meet various workers at their house. I have now come to the conclusion they work with the FBI and are making renovations on their house to establish a safe house for someone who is now in the witness protection program.
And this neighbor--the house sitter has disappeared also. All is dark and quiet on the corner leading me to believe two different people have now been kidnapped. Since they have no local family or ties, the alarm has not been sounded. Perhaps aliens are the culprits and they have been zapped away for the study of the inhabitants of planet Earth. Aliens always know who they can zap without raising a fuss.
There is a house for sale in the middle of the block. Please come be my neighbor and invite me to swim in the pool in the backyard of your new house.
After the "garage caper" during the week, I am happy to report, after a little brain storming, I was able to trip the lock and open the garage door once again. So except for the hole in the wall from the apartment foyer into the garage, which still has not been finished, all is well. I think the cardboard over the hole adds a little shabby chic to the entire thing--well shabby for sure.
AND THE BLUEBONNETS ARE BLOOMING!
