If any of my neighbours are watching this, I’d like to point out that there was no way David Giacalone could have known this was a sensitive topic, and that I intend to have cleaned them all by 31 December 2005.

  1. Who can account for haiku serendipity? Sometimes, even the unaimed arrow hits its mark. [I just got a big smile thinking about the dirty-windows-cross-examination scene in the movie “Cousin Vinnie.” You don’t live next door to the Sack-O-Suds do you, Margaret?]

  2. Serendipity? The next thing I know, you’ll be thinking this is funny!
    No, I don’t know that film. I’m dealing with six pairs of 1906 double windows, i.e. four surfaces when you open them, 2 metres high and glued to with paint in places – to say nothing of six larger modern windows and one balcony door, all facing to the back.
