Anybody wanna buy a condo,,,,?

Once again the Kendall Bridge is ‘temporarily’ open.
Anyone seen the donated Bailey bridge in their travels anywhere? Anyone?

Remember the controversial project I mentioned was under the GOB’s hot lights?
Well for the last week there has been a complete absence of activity going on there. The fleet of dredgers are all huddled up near the road like they have been sent to ‘time-out’. If they dig any deeper, we will be getting Chinese take out from there!
After weeks of constant, non-stop dump truck activity, there has been none! Squat, zip, zilch, nada! And I couldn’t be happier!
The area rep, Melvin Hulse spoke at the lobsterfest opening ceremony. I missed it but heard he told the folks present that if they wanted to control the direction their village was going, they needed to FIGHT!
I hear it was met with applause.
I bet a few of the ‘mover’s and shaker’s’ in the crowd would be groaning at that comment.
Then I also hear that the M.O.W. stated that the road contract has been signed and work will start in 2 weeks. Ho Hum, yawn, never heard that before.
This photo doesn’t do the paved section any justice, but believe me, the holes can be up to 1 ft deep and this is a good section of the ‘Baghdad Airstrip’! And there are miles of this!

Aw crap! I was just informed that I did not win the scooter raffle. Shrimp farm Linda won it. This is the first time I have been without a motorcycle since 1976! Beginning to feel a bit,,, weird.
Congrats Linda! Let me take it for a spin some day.

glad the trucks have been halted!! What is MOW? If they actually start paving the road you'll have to make a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT and take lots of pics so I can forward them to other folks!!!
