So this morning I got up at 9:30. Oh my! I hoped that my car was still there! Come to find out, they actually WILL tow your car away if it’s in the way when they get to it – I watched as they towed the neighbor’s car a couple of days ago. That was too bad. I felt sorry that there wasn’t anything I could do. Sadly, I don’t think that the neighbor was even home at the time – they DO make an honest effort to make people aware that they need the cars moved before they take it to that extreme (I’ve watched while on my morning walk as they’ve gone from house to house knocking on doors to get people to come out and move their cars). Well, good news!! My car was still there!! Yay!! I exchanged a brief conversation with one of my neighbors who had come out to check on his own car and was wondering when the county might be done with its “mess”. I told him I didn’t know exactly, that after they laid this “wedge layer”, as the workers refer to it, they still have to go through and put a “cap” layer on. That will bring the pavement up to the level of the new gutters they put in a couple of years ago and provide proper drainage… I mentioned to him that I thought the sidewalks in the area really needed fixing worse than the road did. He agreed with me. I suppose though that since the road budget had already been voted on and approved the year before, it’s the roads they’re gonna fix while they have the money. Which interestingly, according to one of the workers I talked to who was putting up no-parking signs a couple of weeks ago, is already running out in East county, and East county is having to borrow money from North county to finish the job… I wonder what will happen when they run out of money altogether and the roads haven’t even got the wedge layer put on yet … now THAT would be a mess! Even now it’s like driving to my grandmother’s house way back when I was little and she lived on a gravel road… we always knew when we were almost there because suddenly the ride would get really rough!! Hahaha! THOSE were the days!
Birds singing in the trees
Grass growin’ and breezes blowin’ and
You makin’ Love to me…
I wanna be where vi-bration’s high
I wanna be with my favorite fellow
Way up high in the blue sky…
