I know I have posted this picture before,
it is right next door to us,
a couple is renovating it and we have become quite good friends,
They don't live in the house, but the fellow comes by checks on things.
He has a little metal smith shop outback, and an older camper in his yard!
So this is how the story goes
Once D and M bought the house the next door,
the previous tenants showed up, I did not know the parents well,
but I knew there 3 lovely children,
So the Mom comes to the door with the kids and says they are just stopping to say hi,
that they are there to pick up their lawn mower that they left behind in the move.
No problem, had about ten minutes with the children,
and off they all went!
A few days later my next door neighbor comes over and says,
Cindy, did you happen to see anyone in the yard, because his lawnmower was gone.
I thought to myself Shite, Shite, double Shite, and I say well yes I did the old tenants came and said they were there to pick up their lawnmower, I told them what date, I said I don't even know their last name,
but you should be able to get that from the previous owner.
Anyway that was really the introduction to meeting the neighbor,not really the best start.
So about two weeks ago, I see a truck pulled up to his camper out back in his yard.
It was a cold day, I thought the man was my neighbor,
Anyway I give it no further thought. I saw my neighbor today,
and I said hey D, Why did you move out your camper,
He says I did not move it, it was stolen!
I say you got to be kidding me!
No he figures it was last Tuesday,
I say I think your right, I saw a man in the yard dressed in a skidoo suit shoveling the snow from
around it, I said D I thought it was you!
My husband and he were laughing, my husband said, oh yeah Cindy said D was over and took his camper, that maybe he had to use it for work!
Well then both Mr. Smartarses went to town.
Neighbor D said if I continue to keep such a good eye on the place, that the house should be gone by the end of the year, my husband said oh yeah you better get better insurance, blah, blah, blah.
Then my husband said maybe our house would be gone too,
I jokingly said keep it up and you will both be gone.
Then they started on about my pink hyundai parked out back,
that you notice how nobody takes that because it is pink, etc.
Anyway I let them have there fun, they dished it out,and well
sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do,
and I dished it right back at them.
I thought to myself I will get you boys back,
summer is coming soon, so I know I will have plenty of opportunity.
Anyway when D left I told him to not worry, I would keep a closer eye on the place,
And my husband says, we just had our eyes tested and she needs new glasses!
We all had a good laugh!
My next post I will tell you what happened to the neighbors on the other side when we were watching thier house,
I will give you one hint,
The neighbor on the other side of the house we were watching phoned the police in the middle of the night,
because people were trying to break in. the police caught them.
And what were we doing!
Sleeping peacefully in our beds,
And we knew nothing until later on the next day.!
Trust me they all had a good laugh too.
And you know what so did we.
so next time your neighbors do anything to upset you,
just be thankful I am not living next door..
Think of me and they may appear a much better choice.
Have a great day and love thy neighbor!
If we have laughter amongst friends
we truly do have everything!
