Hi, guys. Just wanted to tell about a job being done on my house by the city. It's a program for low income people. They have been replacing bad wood, repairing, completely re painting outside, and, mowing both back, and, front yards. I started taking pictures today. Here is the first batch....
Enjoy.......

What program is that?  Does it work in other places?  I know a lady who could benefit from a program like that.  Your house looks nice.  Love those palm trees.  I would rather see programs who help our citizens than for this country to give money to someone who does not like us.

Regards

The group that does this in St. Petersburg is called "The N Team".

Is that a local program or is it a nationwide program? Wonder if something similar is available elsewhere.

It's local. Best thing would be to contact your city government, and, ask if they have a property spruce up program for home owndrs on a very limited income....

Thank you, Tony. I love the colors.. And, the white blocks really pop out at you... I'm excited that it is nearly finnished. They had to do some cheap patches, unfortunately. But, as a whole, an excellent job, in my opinion.... I'll still have troubles with overgrowth in both yards, though. They whacked, and, mowed, but, trees, vines, and, weeds keep returning. I also need to find someone who will clean off roof at least once, or, twice a year.. Plants keep trying to grow on it.. There are tree limbs above the roof... Oh, well. The good news is we had torential rains last Saturday, and, not one single leak....

Thanks. We didn't have many color choices, but, it came out well. There's only one dicenting vote. A friend of mine hates the circles on the door. I think they add to it, myself...
I just put the Welcome matt back down, and, a folding chair on porch so I may sit on it when I want to...
It's official.. I've tracked new dirt on porch. Looks well used, already..

They're done, and, won't be back....
Ah... Now to get laundry done today.......
