I have three immediate neighbors and three "outskirt neighbors". In other words my house is in between two other houses and I have a house across the street and the outskirt neighbors are the houses that are next to those houses...make sense? Yeah I just confused the shit out of me too....but it doesn't matter because I want to tell you about our immediate neighbors.
I actually couldn't ask for better neighbors, they are quiet, friendly and very helpful. The neighbor to left of me (looking out my front door) is a retired Army Ranger who builds custom furniture and his wife who works at the town library. Both of them are very nice people always helping out and letting the kids play in their yard but he is VERY conservative and outspoken. I came home one day from work last year to find this handmade sign in his yard.

Now the real reason for this post is the neighbor across the street. We have a pair of retired school janitors who keep completely to themselves.
|Fuck you flamingos!|
They are up there in age so they figure a nice elderly housing unit would be best for them, which makes sense and I wish them the best...but what about me? Who is going to buy their house? What are our new neighbors going to be like? I've never had to worry about this before now. When we got married we moved one town over to a rental house where the only neighbors were the pothead caretaker that lived in the trailer next to our other neighbors, who were all dead. Then we moved in with my parents to save money, lived in a couple of apartments and then we are where we are now.
Now I am faced with the anxiety of wondering who the new neighbors will be...

|Well I suppose it could be worse....|
|...like this. Brother and sister?|
By the way, I want to point out that there is a difference between redneck and white trash...
|Like I've always said...we solve problems.|
