Artist's Description

I LIVE ON A VERY BUSY ROAD IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA, THAT IS TWO LANES AND PASSES THROUGH SEVERAL NEIGHBORHOODS AND HAS FOUR SCHOOLS ON IT. WHEN OUR HOUSE WAS BOUGHT IN 1966, THERE WASN’T A SCHOOL ACROSS THE STREET, NOT TO MENTION FURTHER UP OR DOWN THE ROAD. BACK THEN, THERE WASN’T AN UP OR DOWN THE ROAD, JUST ONE SECTION THAT WAS TWO BLOCKS LONG. MY ADDRESS STARTED OUT BEING 360 AND IT SOON WENT TO 1360, I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THEN THAT IT WOULD GET CROWDED AROUND HERE. ANYWAY, THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ACROSS THE STREET, THAT WAS BUILT 2 YEARS AFTER WE BOUGHT THIS HOUSE, IS BEING REBUILT. IT WAS BUILT IN 1968. THE ONLY BUILDING THAT WON’T BE TORN DOWN IS THE KINDERGARTEN CLASSROOM STRAIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE. IT IS BECOMING A DAY CARE CENTER, OH JOY OH JOY! SO, THE PHONE COMPANY HAD TO COME IN AND DIG A TRENCH FOR SOME NEW PIPING TO RUN THEIR WIRES THROUGH. IN THIS PHOTO, THEY ARE FINISHING UP THE JOB OF COVERING UP THE PIPE AND PACKING THE SOIL BACK DOWN. I WOULDN’T MIND HAVING THE TRACTOR DRIVERS JOB, BUT THE PACKING JACK LOOKED LIKE IT WOULD CAUSE TRIMMERS AFTER A DAY OF UP AND DOWN MOTION WHILE PACKING THE DIRT. BUT, THE DIRT PACKER IS IN A DIFFERENT PHOTO. AS FAR AS THE TRACTOR GOES, “I WISH THAT WAS MY TOY”. IT WOULD HAVE COME IN VERY HANDY WHEN I REDID MY FRONT AND BACK YARDS. I COULD HAVE SAVED A LOT OF HAND SHOVELING AND TILLING. THE NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS GOING TO BE A TWO STORY BUILDING THAT IS SET BACK FROM THE STREET, SO THAT THEY CAN ADD OFF THE STREET PARKING. WHICH, RIGHT NOW IS A PAIN IN THE TUCKUS. IT’S HARD TO GET OUT OF MY OWN DRIVEWAY AT TWO DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY.
