Eviction Countdown: Day 10

The back patio always had potential that was never realized. Back in the day I tried to sunbathe down there but it was too walled in. Sunshine was limited. Then one day I saw a dead rat in the flower beds and it kind of lost its charm for me.

Some sunny mornings I would have coffee and read back there while I was doing my laundry. And sometimes my neighbors would go down and barbecue but I don’t know if they hung out after the grilling.

I was a guest once in the in-law unit one door down, a building whose layout is exactly like ours. They had finished the back wall with french doors and had a lovely garden area to look out on. I’m not sure how they handled the rodents.

The Madonna Residence Inn for elderly women is now, like all old institutional buildings in the City, owned by the Academy of Art. Back in Madonna days residents would meander the sidewalks in their dusters and ask us to help find their  lost cats. Pets were not allowed there.
