New Sidewalks!

Thanks to the Old Munichburg Association’s CID (Community Improvement District), the 500 and 600 blocks of Broadway are getting new sidewalks, curbs, and gutters this year!

It’s all happening very quickly, and it’s just grand.

They tore out the busted-up old sidewalks on our part of Broadway on Monday; built the frame for the new sidewalk Tuesday, and Wednesday they poured the concrete.

When they left that day, the new sidewalks were set enough we could walk on them!

While the contractor’s in the area, we’ve had our front sidewalk (which is not part of the CID) and our driveway replaced, too!

They put in our new driveway this morning!

It’s been hard to work this week, with all the commotion out the windows!

We’ve owned this house for more than a decade, now, and although I had spent a lot of time at first picking weeds out of the cracks or spraying Roundup, I finally gave up on that. Instead, whenever I finished cutting the grass, I’d set the mower on its lowest setting and mow the sidewalks.

Yes, I’d mow the sidewalks. The driveway, too!

But I can scratch that off my list now! We will always remember 2012!

To celebrate, I want to share with you the song I’ve had stuck in my head all week.

Hi! I just discovered your blog! I am a Missourian. I Love Missouri! I think it's such a gorgeous state and has so much to offer. Now that I've found you, I'll be peaking in and hope to take a look through your archives to see what I've missed. Have a nice week! Twyla

Thanks for the kind comment--I'm sorry to be so late in replying--but you don't want to hear my excuses! I hope you've enjoyed looking at my former posts. It's funny how my readership has grown, yet some of my best posts (I think) were written before many people had discovered my blog. Ah well.

I do agree that Missouri has a lot going for it--I wish more Missourians felt the same way, but it seems most Missourians have an inferiority complex about the Show-Me State. Let's try to change that!

Thanks again,
