Garage FloorA big “thank you” is in order for the curious neighbor who just had to sneak into our house sometime after dark last night. Putting holes across the gorgeous and smooth new concrete that had been poured and finished in the double garage was, I'm sure, worth avoiding the trouble of walking to the back door before you trespassed in our home.

I'm sure you'll be sending a check to cover your vandalism. I'll be on the lookout!

I love new homes as much as the next guy (or more!). But I don't sneak into other people's homes, finished or not. It's illegal, it's harmful (obviously!), and it's just downright rude.

I learned that lesson when I was seven. Some neighbor boys told me they could get into a house under construction, so we went for an adventure. I fell through the attic to the first floor. My parents paid for all the damage we caused — to the house as well as to my foot. I wonder if our (much older by the size of the print) vandal will be mature enough to take responsibility.

On the bright side, the crew did an amazing job in the garage. I got a picture before above mentioned jerk did his walk through. It was a work of art. Good work, gentlemen.
