I still don't get the timing, but my neighbors did some very nice things today.
The noise stopped after my last post, and I think has been quiet the rest of the day.
They kept the panels intact. They propped them up against my house (brick), and over lapped them to the back fence, creating a barrier. I've been going out with the dogs to make sure they don't knock it over, but Abby and Andi have been staying in the yard. Though they have been going nuts barking at the strangers, Ernie (the neighbor's dog), and the relatives dogs. So no long stays in the back yard.
It looks like they got the new posts up in concrete. I suspect the actual building will start early.
I must have been sicker and crankier than I thought. About 12 I decided to go to this hole in the wall BBQ place that is great. I went to check the dogs food and water before I left - the next thing I know it is 6 pm and I've missed a family get together that started at 3.
I checked my phone - my sister had called at 3:17 - and apparently I answered. We had enough of a conversation that she knew I was alive but sleeping. There was a text also to call her when I was coherent. They are still down at the farm, but I don't feel up to driving to Fulshear in the dark and negotiation dirt road and a dirt tract to get to the property.
I was starving. The BBQ place isn't open for dinner. So I went to a local burger joint. Had a great meal. When I asked for the bill, the waitress said that someone had paid for me. I know what the meal usually costs so I left her a good sized tip, just to be sure that was covered.
I'm guessing that the neighbors will start up early, actually building the fence. I have a nearly morning hike scheduled so that will work out.
