The house next door

I am not posting any new pictures of the house next door (the one I used to call the monstrosity).  Somehow, now that somebody is there who cares about the place, it seems like that would be an invasion of their privacy.  But I thought I should give my readers an update.
Those people have been spending all day, every day, working on the house, seven days a week.  They fixed many cosmetic problems with the outside of the house first... siding that had never been finished or had been blown away and so forth.  Since they got electricity turned on, they have been working inside.  They took ALL the sheet rock out (black mold, I assume).  They have had plumbers and electricians in.  Honestly, it looks to me like they could have built a whole new house more easily than what they are doing, but I really have no expertise in such matters.  

I see that they are hard-working folks who want a decent place to live.  I think we are going to love our new neighbors.

On another note, it just occurred to me a while ago that our two youngest calves are named Jenny and Penny.

Sounds like the new neighbors will be a nice addition to the street.

Jenny and Penny---perfect names. Doesn't it do your heart good to see the new neighbors fixing up their house?

Yeah, I thought the same thing about our new neighbors at first...

Jenny and Penny--that is very cute! I love hard-working people and think that the new neighbors sound great. However, you'll need some time to truly figure it out. :)

I hope all their work is worth it and that they are good neighbors for you. There is a lot to be said for a good neighbor.
