Right now I have no complaints. But, 5 years ago someone new moved onto the street. They were odd in that they spent every minute of their free time sitting in their driveway! They would read, drink their beer, play music--everytime I would leave my house there they were watching. Hardly blinking, asking where ya going, whats that in the bag? By the end of the first summer they had the BBQ parked on the driveway and a small table to eat at! They had a nice backyard with a patio, but for some reason wanted to stay in the front. By their second year, they had several other neighbors joining the cult of the drivway worshippers. The adjoining neighbour would move his car so they could spread out, and put another table and BBQ out there. Then came the tv so they could watch sports! And the crowd watching me and my family coming and going was getting larger. I would smile say hello and get inside my house and go into my peaceful backyard because the noise was out front!
I was so happy when they moved 2 years later and everything went back to what I call normal. Funny thing is my sister in another town is having to deal with this living in the driveway all summer, people on her street!
