Hi! How’ve you been? Are you as glad as I am that spring is finally here?
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for a few things:
I love clematis and dianthus (I think that’s what those are), and this color combo caught my eye from the corner. I hadn’t really intended to walk up the hill to your house, but the pink & purple pretties pulled me over.
Thank you, also, for surrounding it with hazard tape so that oblivious walkers don’t end up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I’ve selfishly never considered watering either the street or the sidewalk, but as this photo clearly shows, they were both completely dry (as was I) until you thoughtfully turned on your sprinkler. (Perhaps you hadn’t seen the weather reports calling for major rain tonight?)
I probably burned an extra 100 calories just sidestepping these pointy hazards. (May I suggest you check your homeowner’s insurance to ensure you have the proper amount of liability coverage? Just a thought.)
You were very kind to wave as you zoomed across the sidewalk, paused at the street, and continued on your way. Here I thought you weren’t paying any attention to the walker on the sidewalk. You know, the one with the right of way. I’d be even more grateful if you would stop before you reached the sidewalk. I might even wave back with all my fingers rather than the one I used in this case.
I love living with you guys (admittedly some more than others), and I think with a tweak here and there we can avoid any nasty (and painful) accidents or litigation and have our own little corner of Paradise here.
In case you don’t recognize my name, I’m the slightly squishy-bellied walker who zips down the sidewalk (when it’s not being sprinkled, that is) singing along (badly) with her itunes.
Side note to non-neighboring readers: are your sidewalks walker-friendly?
