All Quiet on the Western Front

The weekend's conflict has resolved itself, thanks to a persistent and somewhat hungry mediator. The natives are woefully behind, however, and are storing up their potassium for the long work days ahead. This morning we heard a loud rumbling in the alley. The border collie took a minute from listening to RTE One documentaries on his iPod to check things out. "Guess they're more worried than I thought," he said.

We're not all that crazy about these ramped up construction plans. Too much racket, for one thing. But the border collie says he's got things under control. Seems that he made a call to city hall to report, um, a concern. There's more rumbling, this time from the street. City vehicles have pulled up. It appears our friends have overlooked one very important step in the process.

  1. Uh-oh, there's going to be more trouble when the Hard Way Construction Co finds out it won't be ready for the new model home show in May because of this small legal glitch. I'm sure the border collie has already anticipated this and plans to be at the casino when all hell breaks lose.
