2:45 pm – Now updated with more kvetching!
I have a lot of work today but I can’t concentrate until I get this off my chest.
Truth: my subtext of internal dialog goes like this: buh buh buh buh buh
In other kvetching, it looks like the dopey creek project will have a suitably matching dopey fence around it soon. In the world of fencing, can there be a fence more inefficient at keeping things out than the classic split rail style?
There’s so much tangential goings-on around the creek project. Remind me to tell you about how they put in new sidewalks because of the new catch basin and had to conform to current ADA standards by making all driveway aprons meet flush with the road pavement and they did that by chopping out half of my concrete driveway and re-angling that part, changing the slope significantly. In the 16 feet of driveway that they replaced, the drop is 21 inches. Ironic that their efforts to meet ADA standards made it a real physical challenge to walk up the drive. We protested and they offered to solve the issue (that they created) by building a wooden ramp from my front steps down through the middle of the lawn and through the heart of my magnificent rhododendrons.
These people are insane.

UPDATE: Wait. One more thing.
