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.
