Living in the suburbs, we are subject to street sweeping twice a month. It is a good thing, it is a bad thing. Good thing is nice clean streets, bad thing is having to rearrange your vehicles. Huntington Beach has scheduled my area so that there is absolutely no parking on the streets within our 8 square-block tract.
Today's dance went something like this: Take the SUV down the street to the parking lot of a local park; pick up Dod from his usual place on the street in front of the park and park him in the driveway; take the old Lincoln around the corner to a liquor store parking lot and walk home. All must be accomplished by 8:00 a.m.! Luckily, our tract is the first one serviced so I can usually do the dance in reverse by 8:30 a.m.
Jesse helped me today. About 8:15 a.m. we set off for our morning 1 mile walk. As we returned home the sweeper was just passing my place so Jesse and I continued on to the liquor store to retrieve the Lincoln and Jesse had his first ride with me. He was very well behaved so car rides must have been a regular occurrence in his former life.
Please no jealousy, not all of my days are this exciting!
