Extra, extra! Read all about it

Yesterday I walked out to the street to check if the mail had come and pick up the newspaper.  I really don't read it much, but I like getting an actual newspaper.  To my surprise I saw a very familiar sight when I unfolded the rolled up newspaper:

That is MY house.  On the front page of our local paper.  Under it is just a short paragraph saying who we are, where we are, and to like us on Facebook for more info.

Just wow WOW wow.  Front page news!!!!

I guess our 15 minutes of fame has been extended!  Traffic was steady and a little worse than usual last night.  There were seven cars parked on the street at most, and we had TWO big limo buses come by.  Because of the way people parked on both sides of the street, the street was completely blocked so no one could pass.  A few times I could hear the music inside, so people are still cranking up their radios much too loud.  There's plenty of cigarette buts on the street.  We may have to shorten the show a bit because the longer it is, the longer people stay parked.  I know there will always be a few bad apples, but it looks like next year we'll have to set forth some rules so we don't piss off the neighbors.
