Dear Nearby Residents…
You’ve probably wondered if we were ever going to move into The Compound or if we were just continue to haul stuff out. If you lost count, that was 3 dumpsters of stuff that had to go bye-bye. They were 30ft long if you didn’t get a chance to measure them. We were are surprised as you were.
It would appear that we will move in over the next few days, so the traffic and noise will only ramp up from here. Some of you have taken notice of the running sword fight and little boys’ attempt to build a fort in the tree in the front of the yard. We will do our best to move that around to the side yard, although I offer no guarantees.
I’d like to ask forgiveness in advance for some of what is bound to happen.
Yes, at some point, a child will come to your door and try and sell you something. Feel no obligation to buy anything. In some cases, what they’re selling doesn’t even belong to them. They’re industrious – what can I say.
Please do not judge us by what the kids decide to run up the flagpole. We’ve never had a flagpole before and this one stretches close to sixty feet high, so it’s an almost irresistible opportunity for a little boy.
Know that when the wave of boys passes, there is a second, larger wave of girls. It might quiet down then, but don’t count on it.
Thanks so much – it’s good to be your neighbor. I hope it’s good to be ours.
The Bohlender Tribe
