Let's face it, some folks just don't get it. Whoever it is moving in obviously has some citified paranoia issues thay haven't resolved. I'd also keep an eye on 'em during town meeting. You just know they're going to want to have the town provide some unnecessary service that no one else cares about but that they had 'back where they come from'....


Yes, we all differ in our trust of our fellow persons and our paranoia. HH and I differ in this area, as you well know. He's of the mold where one battens down all hatches while I like windows and doors open. (It's a good thing that I like open doors since I'm too absent minded to close them, let alone lock!) When I traveled so much while living in Albuquerque, I once came home from 2 or 3 weeks away to find that I'd left one of the back patio doors open (not unlocked--open!) The only time anyone ever broke and entered was a car that I had (somewhat inexplicably) locked while attending an event one night in downtown Wichita KS. This I ascribed to kids because they were too incompetent to hot wire the car and merely bummed up the ignition switch so badly that I couldn't drive the car until the switch had been replaced. That was one night that I was thankful to have Sis and Wichi Dude on call!

Wichi Dude

I think I'll do a post on this as I could get windy.


..for our sins we have a couple of 'talking books' in the car (books on tape) - one of these is bill bryson's "notes from a big country"...in it he describes his moving back to new hampshire...how on the day of their arrival their furniture hadn't arrived from england..when the neighbo(u)rs heard this they immediately supplied him with furniture from their houses - even down to a microwave...he describes how doors are unlocked; how, when it rains, the cinema ushers go out and roll up every car window that is parked near the cinema (note - windows open); how when they get back from trips often they find food in the fridge...this sounded "idealistic" to carolyn and I - it also sounded ideal :^)...now you are telling me that it is real - fantastic!!!...when can we move in???...


I volunteer the new neighbor's house as a place for you to stay at Billy!
