Fixed August 2009- I called Anthony, the guy who takes care of my community and he sent a handyman over who replaced the melted siding with new siding in a slightly different shade.  I am going to assume the color difference is owed to the sun and will even out.. eventually.

    Hi, Donna

    I have been looking for that Capt Zoom thing for years. It was so cool to be able to send that link to my brother today for his 45th birthday.
    Love your clips. You must have grown up in the Phila area. 🙂

    Thanks again for some good stuff!
