On Sundays, my wife hits the swap meets and because they are early, she's back by 10am with a car load of things. Lately, we've been having problems parking in front of our house so that we don't ahve to walk too far with the new treasures. We're lucky that our garage isn't too far from the curb, and until recently, we've been able to park about 15 feet from it, which has made it really easy to move our latest acquisitions from the trunk to the garage.
Honestly, I'm not sure what we're going to do soon, as the place is packed to the gills with our weekly booty. The storage shed we've put in the driveway is also filling up.
But I digress, the trouble is, my neighbors now think they can park one of their cars in front of my house and that Alameda Police Department will do nothing to stop them. With all the talk about bus stops and crosswalks happening around town, I'm really nervous that we might lose our parking space once and for all. And then what will we do? Walk 50 feet from the car to the garage with our stuff? We'll have to stop shopping. This city's going down the drain quick.
