Slow *crossing



Slow Down?






I recently had a real time, 2011, conversation about the "Speed Bumps" Jesse, Lenny's son had installed on the common drive. As I mentioned that Lenny's was obsessed about everything we did. We believe he was seriously hurt by our rejection. Under the circumstance, we believe that he was too unstable  and too dangerous to engage in any way. Life was good without him.
One of the things he did was install Speed Limit signs on the common road. Remember, for a period of 10 years, Scott was in NYC for the whole week and I was alone at the house. I would walk up the common drive to get our mail but there were days that I never drove out of the property and occasionally Scott's Parents would stop by , maybe once a month. I have a Van that is 25 years old and it only has 89,00 miles on it. Yes I wrote a Van that is a Babe Magnet.  It appeared that we could never do anything right. We had regular visits from the Lower Saucon Township Manager  who was responding to Lenny's calls. I bit my lip when the manager asked what "our neighbor had against us".  What started to happen is that on sundays people would show up at our house unannounced. They thought that the Official Pen-dot signs meant that it was a real road and not a  private drive. There was a sing as you entered and one as you left. We decided to put a saw horse at the property line on the drive which had a sign saying "KEEP OUT" which in some degree was tongue in cheek. If anyone removed the barrier and proceeded onto our property they could be charged.  Lenny once stopped a female friend and screamed at her that she was going too fast and that she could hit a child. What child? So we simply could do nothing right. It appears with Jesse, his son  who moved into the house, that fruit doesn't fall too far from the tree.
