OK here's a big smile from me for today. Since they finished the sidewalks and resurfaced the street one block away that dead ends into my street, it's been sitting there with no markings (crosswalks, etc.) So today, there was a nice STOP painted on the pavement, AND here's the smile (actually laughing out loud) part: The guy who consistently parks his cement mixer and a huge truck with a cement pumper thingy on a trailer on that street, right at the corner will be growling for the rest of his life.
Because: The new markings included RED CURBS on every corner, and his 'private parking spot' is now shrunken to only enough for one small car. Ha. I'm so thrilled. He's been breaking the rules for over 3 years now and finally they 'get' him. Can't wait to see where his cement mixer and truck end up. Probably in front of one of his neighbor's houses.
