Last month the curb was replaced in front of my house. (Let me be clear..it is really more like an apartment and we rent it, but technically it is half of a very tiny house.)
I must say, having no curb is inconvenient.
No parking and no driveway access.
There were perks though.
We got to stare into the rocky depths of what used to be the curb. We got to enjoy winning the contest for most flashing barricades in front of our house. But the best part was, we got to walk the plank. It was our sole method of crossing the rocky depths. Too bad we didn't have a pirate party while construction was going on.
