By the end of the season on Rocky Neck, I look forward to returning to the peace and solitude of Annisquam for the winter. This year’s return has not been quite as peaceful as in the past, with water main work being done on Leonard Street in front of my house, starting promptly at 7:30 every morning, with jackhammers, backhoes and other noisy equipment. The guys are punctual, friendly, work hard, and are doing necessary work so we have a clean and dependable water supply, so I can’t complain, but will be happy to bid them farewell when they are finished. Some of the hard working guys are shown here. The one in the yellow vest refused to show his face because he said he was an illegal alien. You should check into that Carolyn.
