The talented and knowledgeable computer man came and hopefully the blogpost
will not be messed up with little bits of sentences everywhere and some places
single spaced and others double spaced. We'll see - hopefully it is fixed.
As the title above says, this post is about two sides of "The Wall". The one
here at my house, not the infamous one in Texas............
In November, November 22nd to be exact the big ditch diggers, jackhammers
and whatever else is necessary to dig a hole down the entire length of our street
arrived to begin work. None of us had any idea how long this would take or if
we would be able to access the "outside" world on foot or by car. It didn't take long
to realize that neither was going to be possible as seen by the photos below.
This was prior to Thanksgiving which was the first week. The sidewalk was still usable. It went
downhill from there and by the third week, some of us needed groceries. etc and those who delivered
did so on foot, very carefully as there were big holes everywhere.
No it was not possible to leave by vehicle and if I had wanted to "walk out" I would have had to
somehow make it to the corner..........not possible. So, I was home non-stop for three weeks!
One learns, living in Mexico, to go with the flow. My hope was that it would be over prior to
Christmas. And, actually my hope was realized when ALL was completed by December 9th.
Everyone on this block was astonished and relieved.
We are so used to the quiet and of not even hearing cars on the street that the noise was probably
the most uncomfortable part of it all.
On this side of the wall, I could still enjoy the garden during their lunch breaks or when they left to go
home late in the day. Here are a few photos of the gardens. Enjoy, I sure do!
all the snafus have been taken care of and I can start writing more posts now!
That would be wonderful................let's see what happens when I hit "Publish"!
I look forward to seeing that garden before too long.
Lovely Garden setting!
Thank goodness the photos come through perfectly although the sentences in the post or having margin issues
Love the flower gardens in SMA, and yours was a refuge for you...noise of new construction has been with us here in Oxnard, California, also since before Thanksgiving...more houses...ugg = more traffic, more cars, harder to get around.
Wow, Glad neither you nor your neighbors had an emergency while the construction was going on! It looked rather formidable! Latest from here: you should be getting a delivery of Reese’s in May-June. Here’s hoping you have a VERY Merry Christmas, and a Happy and Healthy New Year! All the Best!
Steve, I'll believe it when I see the "whites of your eyes", ha.
it has been WAY TOO LONG. Almost 5 years!
Thanks Mr. Bill - Hope you have a lovely Christmas in Tennessee.
Yes, Unknown, need to work on that issue a bit more.
Joan - At least our construction is for the purpose of a new sewage system and not more houses! Thanks for taking time to post.......
Ha Anonymous - I KNOW you are "Dan" I did get out for Thanksgiving Day by hanging on to my son's arm for dear life! But, had there been an emergency it would have been a disaster. Looking forward to seeing you and Wishing you and yours Feliz Navidad!!!!!
Looks like your neighborhood had a period there where it was all ready for trench warfare!
I'm glad to see you are well.

Where I'm getting more settled in than ever.
Great to see a comment from you Kim!
I didn't know if you were still in the Northeast or where.
Is your Mom still in Ajijic?
Stay in touch.
Glad to know you're happy in CDMX
