There are some things I did not consider when I leaned on Sherry to buy this house we are parked behind. It is a very mixed neighborhood as far as houses go. At the end of the street are two high dollar houses Next to them is a trailer. The rest of the houses vary in value, we are about in the middle of the spectrum. One guy up the street has a Shetland Pony. He is about 10 feet outside the city limits, so he can have the pony.
The rich guys fly by, always in a hurry. But then I think everyone flies-by (in their cars) even my grand kids.
None of that really bothers me. What I did not consider is the elementary school just above our house. It is near impossible to maneuver in the traffic early morning and 2:10-2:45.
The parents line up for the 2:30 kids pickup starting at 2:00, by 2:10 the cars are out of the school parking lot and block the incoming lane. then by 2:30 they are backed up about a half mile onto a 4 lane road, blocking the inside lane there. If we make the mistake of starting home at 2:15, we have a 30 minute wait to drive the four blocks to our house. Actually our street is closed for 30-45 minutes every afternoon. (Once we got caught in the line in the motor home. I guess folks thought we were picking up our great grand kids, LOL)
I have passed the line a couple times and luckily did not meet anyone coming out our street. Sherry attempted it once and met someone and took to the sidewalk to pass.
It is not an impossible problem, just one we are learning to deal with and schedule around.
That is my small gripe for the evening. It is not INTOLERABLE, We can still smile and we do have very good neighbors. That means a lot. They all act like they are glad to have us in the neighborhood when we return.
Thanks for coming by the log.
If things cannot be changed, it is time to leave or live with it. Funny thing, we can do both with our little problem.
