Looking for information… please add info

It’s 6:20 P.M. Friday night and my baked potato is bouncing up and down on the table. I know for a fact that it’s Friday because Sam down the hall plays his death metal music at an ear splitting volume for 1.5 hours every week.  He will eventually wander off to his local punk club and then “Mr. Reggae” will crank up his tunes on the other side of the hall.
Nothing bothers me anymore except when the neighbour on the left starts some sort of band practice with amplifiers at 11 pm. What I do not like is having to spend most of my day to do laundry. People kind of adopt the casual laid back dressing here and some of them look, well, a tad dusty.


Carole Flint–The last name of Onna is Archdeacon.  The store were the vacuum shop is now was Odelle’s and that was who was in the store before Mr Flint.
