Trying not to think about it

There's a certified letter waiting for me at the post office. Aren't these things usually legal? Uh-oh. What have I done?


While I wish The Bumbles were correct in guessing the contents, the certified letter didn't fill me with delight. Nor with dread. It was just an, "eh!"

The developer who was going to tear down the shops around the block and across the street from my building went bankrupt. So now those store fronts and empty and there are no plans for them. Until September 1. My village recently passed an ordinance that states that, since I live within 500 feet of the property, I have the right to question the new developer who just bought the parcel of land.

Since I can't see that property from my condo, I don't much care. But it's nice to know that the developer is following all the rules and touching all the bases and dotting his i's and crossing his t's.
