Thump! Thump! Thump!!!

That’s the sound I woke up to at 6:45 AM.  So I threw on my robe and walked outside.  Here is what I saw…

My cool neighbor Mike is having a new deck installed and these guys were removing the old slab…. at 6:45 AM???  This poor guy moved all of this concrete in a wheelbarrow by himself!  Three other guys were breaking up the slab with sledgehammers.  It took them 3 hours!

Then another guy showed up with this…

And did this!

As he was working, this strange fog moved in… Strange because it was 10:00 AM by now.

Here is the sun!

As I was snapping pictures these two nice old Vietnamese women walked by.  They do everyday.  And of course they agreed to pose for me!!  HAHA!!  Then they thanked me!!

Later in the day the workers began adding a drain from under the soon-to-be new deck to the street.

It seems to be going well

They had to cut out a hole in the curb, which always amazes me

Also as I was snapping, my neighbor friend Luke pulled up on his bicycle.  Not only did he pose for me but he asked me for a copy!!  LOL!  But he wanted to remove his glasses first!!  HAHA!!

People pose for me all the time!  Neighbors, workers, strangers, firemen, police….!  I don’t remember ever being turned down.  So I just keep going!


Thank you all for your kind comments on my last post.  I was a little worried!  So I guess I’ll just keep doing what I do.

Classic ‘Alabama’ tonight!!

    Definitely keep doing what you do. It’s why we keep coming back!! Sorry I have been MIA lately on my own blog lately. I should be posting soon. It’s been crazy here between my trip, the holidays, work, my cat got sick (which ended up costing almost $800!) and now I’m getting over strep throat. So as you can see…lots to blog about, just have to get the energy to do it! Take care…
