We are loving the repaved driveway. However, the ugly, cracked, rust stained patch of concrete just outside the garage doors was a complete eyesore. I decided to stain it black to match the asphalt. You can see it here:
I bought the stain and started to work on the project early this morning before it got too hot. I cleaned the concrete, scraped dirt and rocks up, and used the leaf blower to get it ready for the stain. I was staining away when I heard a ruckus that I thought was coming from a bird’s nest in the mulberry tree. As I worked I would occasionally hear loud bird sounds coming from the tree. At one point the noise stopped but I had an eerie feeling that I was being watched. I hate that feeling. I looked around and finally found the source of the noise and the stalking.
There it is, in the bracket on the back of the satellite dish! A squatter!
Here is a close-up of the noisy new neighbor.
I can’t even evict this noisy tenant because I do not own said satellite dish. It is leased to us by HughesNet. They are going to hear from my lawyers!
As I finished staining the driveway, my little friend would fuss and holler and suddenly Mom and Dad would appear with food. I suppose I’ll let him stay, but they better clean that mess out when they leave!
The ugly patch of concrete looks much better!
