These are the houses across the street from our house. See those cars? Those belong to me and to Bill who lives with us. We have lived in our house for 34 years and for all of those 34 years we have parked our cars out in front. We would park them in front of our house but that is a fire lane so that is impossible. And we can only park one car in the barn so that is where Mr. Snowbird parks his car. When the kids lived at home, we actually had 3 cars that needed to be parked on the street. All has been well for 34 years. The house where the cars are parked has passed through many owners since we have live here. As I said, all has been well for 34 years.
This spring a new owner bought the house. During my first garage sale in June, she came over and introduced herself. She seemed very nice. She is a single mom who does a lot of babysitting. I haven't seen a lot of her all summer since we never seem to be outside at the same time.
I have to admit that we have had all three cars parked out front most of the summer due to the barn being full of my garage sale stuff and because the contractors needed to get into the back yard much of the summer. And I will also admit that there is a city ordinance that you can't leave a car parked in one spot for longer that 2 or 3 days without moving it and I did tend to forget that. But, as I said, all has been well for 34 years. No complaints from any of the previous owners in any of the 3 houses that we park in front of. Until last Friday!!
Bill came home from work and found a note on my windshield. When he brought it in to me, I was astonished to say the least. I'm afraid a few choice words escaped my lips.
Just curious, what would you think if you found the following note on your car???
