Some neighbors (I’ll call them the M’s) watched Michael’s fish while we went to Hays in May. When we went over to get it back, the guy told us about a big fight his ex-wife had in his front yard with his son while we were gone.

He said one of our other neighbors (Mommy B) yelled over the fence at them something like, “Do you mind? We’re trying to have a nice family dinner here.” Daddy M said his wife told him, “We may as well start packing to move right now.”

I told Daddy M, “Are you kidding me? No way! This is good stuff. I’m sorry I missed it. I would’ve been yelling at you to SPEAK UP!” Aron said I would’ve been in the yard with a Coke and binoculars.

I love that crap because, really, who doesn’t fight? I worry about you if you can’t have a passionate disagreement with someone you love. So instead of getting all High and Mighty next time you see something going down, just pull up a chair and turn up your hearing aid. You might learn something.


  1. The problem with having so many kids (and you know this) is they do the same thing. Then they jump into the argument and almost keep score.

    "That's right, Dad!"

    "But that didn't happen last week. It was TWO weeks ago..."

    Now we just tell the kids to go away. Mom and Dad are fighting. :]

  2. Yesterday I was wondering if my neighbors left their car trunk open to just bother me! My Grandma used to use a Portuguese word that meant someone who sits by the window watching the neighbors...we didn't have TV!

  3. We had neighbors on our farm. A half mile away and on a clear morning you could hear them screaming at each other all the way at our place!! My parents never argued, at least in front of me. And we know how well that turned out, lol!

  4. haha! I love nosy neighbors.


Talk to me!
