New Neighbors

It's really something how the initial thrill of buying a new house makes you immune to the nuisence you may be causing your neighbors.

Such is the case this early morning with my backyard neighbor to the right (not the PIG neighbor to the left), who moved in a couple of days ago. He has taken a real shine to hammering any number of deck and fence boards in the wee hours of the morning.

I understand. I remember moving in here and blaring the radio in empty rooms as we painted over bright Polish heritige colors with six layers of primer.

I guess I should bake some cookies and drop them by.

And while I'm there, steal his hammer.
