Our unseasonably warm weather has faded and rain has returned and with it the latest jigsaw puzzle was brought out. 
This one although not that large (500) pieces was a real labor intensive pain in the arse.
For the last year there has been so much construction going on around us that it dosen't take much more than a light sprinkle of rain added to the construction noise to make this old gardener quit doing what he loves doing more than anything else and join MeMa in a quite session of puzzle making hopla.
The storage facility at the end of our street is still in full swing, dozens of workers making all sort of noise.
The ten large homes now behind our once very private back property are almost all sold and filled with families.
Our next door neighbor's upper addition and rear add on is turning out to be a a bigger project than we thought.
Today the city engineer team has informed us that very soon they will be returning with heavy machinery to "jackhammer" the street, sidewalk and curbing in front of our home and adding a large ADA approved curb cut with wheelchair ramp. 
 I think we will be spending more time at the cabin were it is so quiet one can hear a deer fart.
It happens.


  1. Oh, I can understand the cabin beckoning. I hate noise.

  2. Might be time to retire to your cabin permanently, Doc. I think I would.

    Almost looks like a tornado hit your lovely neighborhood.

    That puzzle definitely looks like a bear, so to speak. 🙂

  3. I look at all the new building here, on former fields and farm yards, and remind myself everyone has to live somewhere. And now the houses have grown so expensive, they are on forty foot lots.
