We're building on Schmidt and Aubry street...

Was that the name of the farmer who was trying to plant corn in our subdivision when the pavement crew came through? :)

Poor Mr. Schmidt and Miss Aubry, we're going to miss them...

In my neck of the woods, subdivisions are named for what was destroyed to build it. Examples: Deer Meadows, Twin Oaks, Whispering Hills, Pine Forest. etc. I actually worked on the land survey crew for Whispering Hills. We had a guy on the crew named Stan that on a good day said "Good morning" and "Good night" for his total conversation. As a joke, when we drew up the subdivision, we named the roads after Stan. Silent way, Whispering Run are the 2 I still remember. He was a heck of a nice guy, just didn't say much.
