Interruption temporaire

The hang tag left on my door says that the main sewers on my street will be rehabilitated from 8 am until 9 pm today. Odours resulting from the resin used to line the sewer may be noticeable during the work. Special instructions include this: Do not use showers, bath tubs, sinks, dishwashers or laundry washers, and keep toilet flushing to a minimum. I guess there’s nothing left to do but draw the activity on the street.

    That is a really nice sketch. If I were the City, I would want to purchase it for a brochure or newsletter.


  7. When life gives you lemons…go ahead and sketch them. lol What else can you do? Do you notice there are always two workers standing and just watching? Great sketch.

    This is delightful–odd word to use for people working on sewers but it is. Wish I would get a notice not to do laundry or wash dishes, etc. for just a few hours.
