Playing marbles on 164 at the intersection of Arcadian isn't recommended. Bad enough it was 7:30 at night and dark. Could've been worse had it been a busy time of day.
The much-anticipated garbage carts arrived this week. Even though we returned the cart size preference card, I was beginning to wonder if, indeed, we were on the list to get them. Those with alley pick up aren't getting the new carts and we live on an alley that's not really an alley. A little uncertainty. Plus, during one of the last really big windstorms we lost another plastic garbage can, so we were kinda counting on these replacements.
Heard Waukesha mentioned on national radio last night. NPR's Marketplace is doing a month-long topic on water. Reporter Sarah Gardner grew up in Waukesha. It felt so good to hear someone from here broadcasting correct pronunciations nationwide on this hot topic. Not only did she nail "Waukesha," but correctly pronounced Duchniak, Vrakas, even Schoenknecht!
