MEANWHILE HERE IN THE HOOD

Once again Friday night rolls around and I have my weekly sleep over pal here with me.



He is like sleeping with an alligator!

It was decided a little excavation work needed to be done in my backyard while he was here.



Followed by a wild game safari, as he searched for the lizard who lives under the potting shelf.



During the late afternoon, we took a stroll to the neighborhood park and discovered the Mother's Mafia was meeting.  While they were circled up plotting their next caper, their children were all in the drainage ditch by the railroad tracks playing--completely out of eyesight.  



OKAY---perhaps it was a Girl Scout meeting--BUT from a distance it could have been the Mother's Mafia!



-AND--these neighbors--they are still gone-but still sneak by occasionally and at times meet various workers at their house.  I have now come to the conclusion they work with the FBI and are making renovations on their house to establish a safe house for someone who is now in the witness protection program.



And this neighbor--the house sitter has disappeared also.  All is dark and quiet on the corner leading me to believe two different people have now been kidnapped.  Since they have no local family or ties, the alarm has not been sounded.  Perhaps aliens are the culprits and they have been zapped away for the study of the inhabitants of planet Earth.  Aliens always know who they can zap without raising a fuss.

There is a house for sale in the middle of the block.  Please come be my neighbor and invite me to swim in the pool in the backyard of your new house.




After the "garage caper" during the week, I am happy to report, after a little brain storming, I was able to trip the lock and open the garage door once again.  So except for the hole in the wall from the apartment foyer into the garage, which still has not been finished, all is well.  I think the cardboard over the hole adds a little shabby chic to the entire thing--well shabby for sure.

AND THE BLUEBONNETS ARE BLOOMING!

  2. I'm laughing too! And not just because of the labels put on The Neighbors, which are hilarious, but because Hubby and I said / did the same thing with some of our neighbors in Jax (Jacksonville, FL). We had the Raccoons next door because they rattled their trash cans when disposing of trash, the White Family across the road because everything they had was white: house, car, clothes, etc. etc. and so-forth and so-on.
    I would love to live in Texas but not the Fort Worth area. Too many people for this country mouse. We're kinda fond of the area around Jasper or so on US Hwy 190. Lovely area and not too dissimilar to where we live now in SE Georgia. I hope you get friendly neighbors and they do offer pool invites. Have a blessed day! ~:)

  4. Hey Lulu---another thought.....my hubby says he wants to live in Waco and have Chip and Joanna (Fixer Upper on HGTV) design a house for us. Ugh...I am so not moving back south/where the heat and humidity messes with my hair, LOLOLOLOL. I love your posts, thanks for the smiles. I am pretty sure I can think of a story to tell about city life, wink...Blessings to you, friend.

    1. My daughter & son in law lived there 5 years while at Baylor--they LOVE Waco. I am with you-too far south--3 hours from FW. Daughter knows a friend who knows Chip & Joanna and have known several of the couples on there. Refreshing perspective and I like hearing some of the background from those who know!
      Blessings!

  5. Oh my! Are you writing a mystery novel? You could!

    Is that little fellow a grandson? I found sleeping with mine, when he was about that age, was like sleeping with a blender. An alligator could be worse!

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
