With all that glass in the living room, I hope you have a good view toward the SW. What does it look like? Rural, urban, water feature, parking lot?

I have a view of an Astro Burger across the alley. The alley is not always unoccupied at night.

What can be said? Just exactly how it should be... Your collections and decor are spot on.

I had no idea that you had that pond! Did you add that, or was it always there?

peterm,
The pond belongs to my neighbor to the south of me.
It is occupied by black swans and ducks and the the real bonus is I do not have to take care of it.
(note his driveway at the bottom of the pic.)

Roderick,
Thought the pics would answer your question.

hypnoraygun,
Thanks for posting your pics.

Oh, you did post that it was your neighbor's. The pics are so intoxicating that I forgot to read the descriptions...

Note the black band-aid of tar acting as flashing & counter-flashing.

These pics give an idea where we began."
