Lock your doors and keep your eyes open...

One of the nice things about our neighborhood is that it's a nice, out-of-the-way place that's generally pretty quiet.

But we do need to remember to lock our doors and keep our eyes open. There are lots of contractors in-and-out all week; you probably recognize most of them. But other people slip in too, and may not have our best interests in mind. If you have a question about anybody you see, drop us a note and we'll see if anybody else has an issue with them .

And speaking of quiet, remember that there are city laws about noisy dogs and other animals. I really have no interest in making a fuss about anybody's animals, but some of our neighbors like quiet.
