Never a dull moment

Last night the woman I carpool with walked down the street to show her kids my house. They were just standing there, looking at the house. I got nervous that they were going to knock on the door, but they didn't. A man with a dog walked down the sidewalk as they were standing there and the dog next door that is never leashed ran out and the two dogs got in a small tussle. The man who was walking his dog started to freak out a little. Carpool woman was there shielding her two kids from an impending dog fight. The 7th grader next door pulled the unleashed dog off the leashed dog.

Later, a fire engine with sirens parked outside our house. The fire SUV came and another fire engine came. I had no idea what was going on. They go to the house next door with the unleashed dog. They look in the back yard. Our neighbors have a chiminea in which they feed huge logs that are too large for it. They burn stuff in there constantly and in fact leave the house with things still burning in it. I guess that fire got out of control because they unrolled the hose and sprayed the neighbors back yard.

Those people are insane. They always have been. One of her kids has been in and out of jail and was dealing drugs out of the house. I can't believe they burned their back yard. That house is for sale and I'm sure the owner is not going to be happy. These people just floor me. It's unbelievable. I just don't understand people.

I'm guess I'm just glad the fire didn't get out of control?

And these people are able to reproduce while T and I cannot. How can it be a better idea to propagate those genes?

Believe me, any insane next-door neighbour stories you have, I can top! :) But if I were you, I'd check that the batteries in your smoke detectors are all in working order...

I keep reminding myself that you can pick your friends but you can't pick your family or neighbours.

My DH became quite upset tonight when we were watching the news and they said that the population of the earth is increasing by 73 million a year. Why can't we increase it by just 1? So unfair. Big hug to you.
