Course he was lucky to get in, and good thing the recruiter waved the rules and the judge agreed to reduce the charges from battery down to "disturbing the peace" so they could take 'im, after that brawl down at the bowling alley, in which Jack punched Earl (Sue Ellen's big brother) and threatened him with a broken PBR bottle. Heck, Earl only asked if Jack was gonna run out on his lil sister or be a man!

Sure, little towns are boring. You know Mabel will always bring the same potato salad to the potluck, and she puts in too much yellow mustard, but her ambrosia is as good as anyone's. And rumor has it her big quilt, the one she took to the state fair and got a second place for, wasn't even her design. She was over at Helen Shoemaker's house and saw the pattern there. Helen had been planning on making that quilt for years, but with her sciatica and the trouble with Harry, she hadn't gotten around to it yet.
So true. Thanks for a great laugh.

Update;

I saw the new neighbor over at the property today so I went over to chat for a minute. I didn't even have to ask about the driveway; he told me where it was going and it was favorable to me.

He's a really laid back nice guy. Since he is from out of state I mentioned not walking around barefoot due to the velvet ants and that the best way to prevent chiggers while there is no lawn is to spread sulfur.

It seems to me that he is going to be a great neighbor although it will be an adjustment since I haven't had a neighbor in the past 15 years within a half a mile of me.

What about the neighbor that you said uses this guy's easement?

He lives on a property behind me and his house is about a half mile from mine. This is a rural area.

Heck even the new house next door is going to be probably 1500 to 1750 feet from my property line.

LOL. I'm sure that we all pictured something much closer.

Glad to hear that things are working out favorably for you.

Can we get a Hear! Hear! Rah! Rah! Rah! for actually talking to your neighbors?! Not everyone is on a hair trigger if you want to make a suggestion in the interests of long term peace and happiness. Sometimes the worst ~doesn't~ happen.

And maybe you'll get to hear some of the better gossip while you're at it.
