Prior to moving to San Antonio my sister, Jenn, sent me a very informative and detailed fact sheet on the town house and the city. She also left me a goodie basket, but she didn’t have time to purchase a basket. So it's a goodie assortment in the armoire.... just as good. My assortment contained a wide range of to-go menus, cute napkins, a bottle of my favorite wine, brownie mix, and "What to do in San Antonio" cards. It was very thoughtful. Thanks, sis.
Here are some of the highlights from the fact sheet...
~I’ll clean out the small mammal that’s in my bath tub drain before we leave.
~I think the upstairs toilet clogs more often than the downstairs one. Not sure exactly… maybe it’s me.
Winter / Fall Yard:
~LEAVES! Too bad Mawmaw can’t rake anymore. She used to love it. I’ll most likely deal with the leaves when I come back. Last year we raked about 3 times. Probably had 6 – 12 bags of leaves each time. It’s obnoxious. They fall from about mid-October and then bloom in March.
~The only thing to remember is turn it off when you’re not using it. It’s the red button on the bottom in the front.
~Don’t fall off. That would really hurt.
~If you do fall off, aim for the bed.
~Stray cats are a pain, so kick them out if you see them lounging or sun bathing on the back porch. Don’t be soft with them. They have a decently sized posse & are multiplying so you don’t want to be known as the softie.
~You may encounter a possum or coon. Don’t be alarmed, just scare them away. Sometimes coons run on our roof. Not sure why they do that but it’s a weird sound.
Other HOA rules:
~I left the binder of HOA rules in the cabinet above stove in case you’re interested in some dull reading.
~I’m leaving a bunch of to-go menus for you. I think you will be delighted with the range of excellent choices.
~ Some of our favorites are:
Pasha meditterean (only downside is they don’t serve wine)
Mama Margies (margaritas for $3.50)
It’s Greek to Me (only get carry-out)
Rome’s Pizza (love the bistro bread)
Lee’s Chinese Food
Samurai Sushi – think you’ve been there
Aldos is nice Italian. Go there on a date.
Hooters @ Wurzbach… just kidding
Shogun (just as good as Benihanas)
La Fagata (beware of strong margaritas)
