It is snowing very lightly as I write this blog. We have had a very mild winter – sure it has been cold but there has been little snow. I will not be too sorry to see winter end because there is much to do outside and it is a bit difficult to do anything outside when it is below zero. Although the guys laying bricks over the road seem to cope – and even lay bricks in the snow.
The council people in Indianapolis have obviously heard my complaints about potholes. A few weeks ago two workmen arrived and dug a very large hole in the road outside our house. It is about 4 feet by 6 feet by 3 inches deep. They then covered with it a large sheet of metal and left.
We wondered what would happen next - and about a week or so ago the metal was removed – we did not see it go. So now we just have a very large uncovered hole.
As cars go over it they make a very loud noise as the wheels try to tear themselves off – loose articles in the car hit the roof - their glasses break – and those with false teeth watch them clatter onto the dashboard.
I am collecting the hubcaps – the ones that don’t hurtle down the road and smash thru the neighbors fences – and may make some sort of sculpture out of them.
Our Green Cards have arrived. I look very much like a grave robber in my photo. I have also received a brochure entitled ‘A Guide for New Immigrants’ . I am studying this carefully because there are lots of rules here and I do not wish to transgress.
