New development in officialdom

Yesterday I got a voicemail from the lovely Arnold Joe from Caltrans. He told me he had spoken to Sandra at DPW and they are going to take out an encroachment permit for the garden! Seems like this will absolve Caltrans of liability for the shockingly dangerous things I am doing there involving malicious twig weaving, flagrant flower planting and the wanton encouragement of wildlife ;)

So I dutifully called Sandra and left her a message, and with a bit of luck we’ll have a meeting together around the 14th to talk about… stuff.

Then I got a call from Alice at Sophie Maxwell’s office who asked if I had received a call from Joe yet. Why yes I did! Seems like Alice has been pulling strings (or yanking chains) on my behalf.

Three cheers for the slightly oxidized cogs of local government finally trundling in the right direction! And for the metaphorical WD-40 of our petition, and the people who supported the garden at key points so far. It seems to be working.

Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!
