Neighbors: A Sad Story and a Happy One

Last Update: February 02, 2021

I've been very distracted by a situation a family of our near neighbors are in. I'll just say that their arguments have escalated to really bad, and we can't help but be aware of a lot of it. We see police cars and ambulances sometimes.

On the other hand, today my husband was outside chatting with a couple who were on the street above our backyard. I couldn't see them so I went out to see who it was. They immediately said hello, very warmly, but the light was behind them and I had no idea who they were until they told me their names. They live a few blocks away and we have had several potlucks with them. Due to the coronavirus, I don't walk that way so it has been a long time since we had the pleasure of connecting. So we had a nice catching up visit today.

The difficult situation has cut down on my work, but now I'm determined to get back into a lot more blogging. Happily, our home office doesn't get the sounds I want to avoid.

Ah, life!

Neighbors CAN be distracting. I have to tell Eugene to quiet down all the time!!!! LOL!!!! <just kidding of course> I have one that loves what I call "head bangin'" music. It DOES make my head bang with a headache. Fortunately it's not that often. Neighbors ARE important and they're the luck of the draw.

Hi Rosans,
It is not easy to work when you are aware of the unhappiness and strife around you. Try to block out the negativity.
This is a difficult time for families who are not happy to begin with.
It's so good to hear you will be blogging more.
All the best

Good neighbors really make like pleasant. My wife and I have been very fortunate over the years. The very worst neighbors we had basically ignored us most of the time.

Our neighborhood has difficulties also, Candace is a cancer, so when the time is right, we go out and howl at the Moon, I can howl much louder than her, but I like to make a spectacle of myself.
