Elizabeth writes around 7am:

“Giant fire at the apartment building behind LAMB school. There were probably 30 engines and you could see and smell the smoke from North Capital street. It was insane.”

“Dear PoPville,

I received a summons for Federal grand jury duty and will know in a few weeks if I’m on a panel. I’ve been trying to find online anything about people’s experiences being on a Federal grand jury in DC, and there isn’t much other than the government’s FAQ page and the like. The summons says this service would “generally” be one day a week for twelve months, then elsewhere says it’s twice a week for eighteen months. Either way, this is kind of a big commitment!

Would you be willing to ask your readers if any have been on a Federal grand jury in DC or at least was summoned for consideration, and if so what their experiences were like, please? I searched the archives and saw a few posts about being summoned a few years ago but not much on outcomes and experiences.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood.

Buffy is a seven year old beauty who was tired of infected ears and subsequent complications, so she decided she didn’t need ’em anymore! She’s almost perfectly healed back up, just needs to grow some fluff back, but she’s not too worried. She’s a big explorer and such a social butterfly! She loves giving face to face rubs and having zoomies around the house. She does well with other cats and is quite adventurous! To learn more about her, check out her instagram account (@teddybear__and_friends) or email her foster: [email protected] (Humane Rescue Alliance).”

My name is Cocoa and I’m a sweet senior that just wants you to be my person forever! While I sleep a lot, don’t let that fill you- I love to go on adventures and wag my tail the entire time. My favorite pastime is laying in a ball with my tongue out. I’m crate-trained, leash-trained, and I don’t get up on furniture- but I love a big, soft pile of laundry and baskets. As an added bonus, my adoption fee was already paid for by a generous donor! If you’d like to meet me, email my foster dad: [email protected] (Humane Rescue Alliance)”

What? Why are you looking at me like that? You’ve never ssssseen a ssssnake before? Come a little closssser. Look into my eyesssss. And now….Adopt me! To learn more, call the Humane Rescue Alliance: 202-723-5730.”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in a two-unit condo and have had a very difficult relationship with our one and only neighbor. I tried to keep it as civil as possible and avoid conversation unless absolutely necessary, but there are times when I am extremely frustrated or disappointed ( I am sure my neighbor too is). Any advice how to manage a small HOA and if there comes a point where the two parties cannot agree on important issues, what should one consider doing?”

Anyone know of professional mediation services in D.C.?

“Dear PoPville,

My husband and I need to move from our 9th Street rental as it is being sold and are looking for a new rental that allows rabbits. We have four house rabbits and while I have found quite a few “pet friendly” places, they are really only friendly for dogs and cats. In order to find something in a reasonable time frame, we would like to use a realtor to reduce the stress of this already stressful situation. I am looking for suggestions of real estate agents or realtors or whatever they are called who knows the Petworth, Takoma, Takoma Park, Silver Spring areas who will deal with the tenant side of renting.”
