One of the things that has been happening while I have been away from the Forum has not been very pleasant for us. This was our view from our front porch...and now this is our view... Our Landlord is building some duplexes on the big lot open lot we loved so much. I understand that as a Landlord he is in the business of building rental properties which he makes his living on. When he bought the big lot I figured one day he would build himself a house on it or do exactly what he is doing now...build more rental units. My Honey and I are sad are beautiful view is gone, but we are thankful the oak trees didn't have to be cut down (although some of the limbs had to be cut) and praying for some good neighbors that might just become new friends too. I didn't know if I should put this under Home Improvement but decided it is a home improvement around our home that we just wish wasn't happening but are trying to think positive about.
