spooky old house

Alley Work

Well, it looks like the city decide to spring a surprise on me. They started work on repaving the alley adjacent to my house and in the process they cracked the old contractor stamp in the sidewalk by the house. I'm not a happy camper.

I complained to them and they're going to be careful with it, but I'll have to see just how bad it looks once they're done.

On the plus side they are replacing one of the small retaining walls and I might get them to do some concrete work on my parkway while they're there (I'll have to pay for it, but it should be cheaper than normal since they're already working in the area and their machinery is there etc...)

Hopefully I'll have more photos once the work progresses a bit more.
