    Default New neighbors

    I have new neighbors, town folk, kids in their 20s, about to have their first baby.

    It took me two years to break the last new neighbors in, things went well for another 3 years and the husband died of cancer back in November. Wife sold out to move closer to Walmart.

    I hope this pair learns fast but I do not hold out much hope. Both of them squealed like little girls and ran when I showed them the 6' snakeskin I found while mowing. I also had to explain that the "dogs" they heard howling at night were not dogs, but coyotes.

    They also did not like finding out that their house has been occupied by four owners and three of them died!

    Only time will tell.
    We came here to have family fun so shut up and make a freekin' smore!

    Be nice. They likely feel they have found their forever paradise in the country. Sounds like some hard lessons are ahead.

    1st baby born in the country eats dirt. Mom takes him to the doctor.
    2nd baby born in the country eats dirt. Mom hoses his mouth out.
    3rd baby born in the country eats dirt. Mom counts it as lunch.

    People don't know what they don't know.

    It's not your responsibility to wipe their...noses for them, but maybe you can help 'em to learn to appreciate the wildness of the country.

    Of course, they could be "Trees are people, too!" type people. Burned hand teaches best there.

    Well, Uncle Leon...Sounds like you have something to keep you busy......LOL.

    New neighbors are always a crap shoot......got good quite neighbors again on both side in the city house....
    Cut grass, blow snow....pretty quite.....Maybe too quite...LOL.

    The Place has new people in the cabin to the east....kinda local...from about 30 miles away...Lady with teenager and a local boyfriend.
    She is a guard at a nearby prison.....
    Big plans to live there year around...Not a bad idea.....but lots of work needed.

    To the west is still my old neighbor...about 25 years....we have about the same level of azz-whole-ness....so we get along fine....

    The only thing that stays the same....is change...

    They will be glad they have you as a neighbor.
    Good luck....

    Okay, first, she is not pregnant. I know it looks that way but it's a thyroid condition or slow metabolism or something. She refers to herself as "stocky". They didn't run off screaming because of the snake skin. Your fly was open and you had beans last night. They just posted on that Problems with the Neighbors web site about an old guy that lives next door that has killed three people. Sooooo.........

    at your age maybe those 20 year olds are really in their early 40s lol
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Well Kyrat if you decide that they aren't good neighbors, let me know. We will have a sight in all of our guns party in your back yard! They will probably move very quickly!

    He's already hung a bulls eye on one neighbors house. I'm surprised he didn't point that out to them.

    They think it is a decorative quilt square.

    35 yards from the back porch it makes a perfect bore sighting target for the AR rifles.

    They Seem to be good kids and they are not immigrants from the city, they are transferres from further out in the woods. They think they have moved to town now that the McDonalds is only 3 miles away.

    They are very quiet, I do not even realize they are home most of the time.

    Kyratshooter didn't shoot me at the last Jamboree so I think I'm safe. In fact as soon as he saw Max he said, "Heeler? Best dog I ever had." Technically he met Max before me.
