Curbside Caper

When driving up our street to the very end, this wall is what greets you as you turn right, onto the next street. Well... on Monday morning I was heading the opposite way, to zip home for my lunch break. As I neared this wall, I noticed that it was completely COVERED with graffiti(in red and blue) from top to bottom, side to side! :( I also saw that one of my neighbors was out there with a spray bottle of some sort, and a rag, which looked pretty pitiful for tackling such a big problem! I stopped and talked to him and then continued on home to take care of my dog for a bit, grab a bite to eat and then head back to work...Bill was still there plugging away! When I drove home about three hours later I was pleasantly surprised to see the wall graffiti-less!!! Bill had used his sand-blaster and power-washer to do the dirty work, and work it did! It took him 4 hours!!! The photo above is the end result:) I stopped and gave him a double thumbs-up! This was the first graffiti I had ever noticed in this neighborhood, and I hope the last! Good job, Bill!!!
Later in the evening Jim and I took these cookies to Bill as a small token of our great appreciation for all his hours of work to clean up our neighborhood! He seemed to be very happy to get the cookies and the THANKS!!!
