Council: 10020 - No. WINDHAM

Project Description:

OUR NEXTDOOR NEIGHBOR IS A 92 YEAR OLD WIDOW WHO HAS NOT RECOVERED FROM A STROKE SUFFERED A FEW YEARS AGO. OVER THE PAST 40+ YEARS SHE HAD PLANTED EXTENSIVE GARDENS ON HER WATERFRONT PROPERTY. WE (MY WIFE & I) HAVE ENDEAVORED TO UPKEEP HER LANDSCAPING WHILE AT THE SAME TIME TRYING TO DOWNSIZE THE GARDENS SOMEWHAT DUE TO HER DECLINING HEALTH. UPKEEP INCLUDES WEEKLY LAWN MOWING, GARDEN WEEDING, TREE TRIMMING, RAKING, BEACH CLEANING, NEAR DAILY DELIVERY OF MAIL TO HER FRONT DOOR, OUTGOING MAIL TO HER MAILBOX, COPYING DOCUMENTS AS NEEDED, DELIVERING FRESH FOOD ON OCCASSION, AND OTHER DEEDS AS REQUESTED. SHE WAS VERY INSTRUMENTAL IN HELPING MY MOTHER DURING THE MANY YEARS SHE (MY MOTHER) WAS A WIDOW LONG BEFORE MY WIFE AND I RETIRED AND MOVED TO MAINE. THE ACTUAL HOURS INVOLVED ARE TO SAY THE LEAST DIFFICULT TO CALCULATE BUT THE 87 HOURS OVER SIX MONTHS INCLUDE AT LEAST 27 HOURS OF LAWN WORK, 50 HOURS OF GARDEN MAINTENANCE &10 HOURS OF OTHER MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVITIES.
