Velcro has been in rare form for the last three weeks. She has been checking on the bulldozer, the dirt piles and the workers. As the dirt piles get larger and larger next to the house, she climbs up on the wall to look down and see how much farther until she will be able to just step off the wall onto the top of the pile.
Here's a photo of her sitting at the gate watching me taking photos of the demise of the formerly beautiful vines and plants on the front of the house.
The neighbors, Velcro and I are all contemplating how many more weeks of this it will take to re cobble the street. Get the rocks off of our houses and life will return to normalcy. Wanna bet?
Yesterday one of the parents got too close to the rubble and a boulder was wedged under the front tire. The guys couldn't get the boulder out so four of them lifted up the front end of the car and someone else got the boulder out. An extraordinary sight!
Enough already with all the drama! Hopefully it won't be long and the tranquility will return.
But to add to all this, my tinaco (water tank) on top of my house burst yesterday. No, I don't have any photos. I was too busy trying to get someone here to turn the water off on the tank. It looked like Niagara Falls was on top of my roof. Water running off in torrents into the dirt pile. It's a good thing I had just returned home from lunch. New tinaco installation on Thursday. Another adventure. I can hardly wait.....
