2/29/2016: Dumpster at 350 Waltham

Hey you guys its me – the dumpster at 350 Waltham St. Got dropped off here last week when they started demo’ing the house. 

  
When I first came down from the roll-off truck I thought very funny gang – I’m not even close to the house. At least put me on the property. Or get me off the sidewalk. 

But then they left. Now it’s been a week. I’m worried I’m gonna get hit by a car. People are giving me the worst looks. Even the raccoons – and they love dumpsters. 

Just wanna be a little closer to the house. That’s all. 

2/25/2016: Man arrested for lewd behavior on Adella Ave

A Waltham man was arrested Tuesday for lewd behavior on Adella Ave. A woman was walking to her house on Adella when she passed a man sitting in his car. The man noticed her, then drove around the block to catch up with her as she was entering her house. He then honked to get her attention, then did some lewd stuff you guys.

The woman told him to F off, then called police with his license number. Police caught him a few minutes later. Turns out he was on probation for 4 previous arrests and is now headed to prison.

I know we live in our little Newton bubble, but be careful you guys. If you see someone suspicious, immediately tell them to F off and call the police. We gotta keep our neighborhood safe.

PS – Adella Ave is really growing on me. Think we need like a Randlett/Adella mixer this spring.

2/24/2016: What’s up with the Nathaniel Allen house?

The Newton Cultural Alliance, which owns the Nathaniel Allen House, cut down some trees the past few weeks around the property. So I called them to see what’s up.

Here’s the deal you guys. They’re hosting the Junior League of Boston this summer as part of their show house series. Basically they have 15-20 designers that will each design a room in the house, then be open for public viewing. They’re cutting down the trees to clean the property up a bit. The house itself is protected under historical restrictions and can’t be changed. So no like development or anything happening here.

Also, did you guys know there is a bowling alley in the barn? I think we need to take some Coors Lights down there a bowl a few frames.

2/23/2016: Terrence got his fence fixed

You guys may remember several weeks ago a car crashed into Terrence’s fence and smashed the holy hell out it.

Well Terrence got it fixed and highly recommends his fence guy — Anchor Fence LLC. Here’s the finished product and what Terrence had to say about it:  

 

“The selection process to get this guy was very extensive and done in line with a tough corporate finance and procurement mindset (I did an RFP). He is about 20% cheaper than anyone around here. Better quality material and lower cost = productivity.”

Love the mindset here. Just no BS. Using words like RFP, procurement — like we’re in a boardroom or something you guys. Well done Terrence.
