Every morning is a challenge. It was nice to hear from Chatty Crone, real name Sandie. I found a blog I could comment on so I was able to wish her a speedy recovery. Seems to be doing quite well. I am glad it is nearly over with. I commented on my last blog I didn’t like fireworks and hated the 4 th. The reason I feel that way was a really bad incident with my alcoholic neighbor when their mother was still alive and drunk, which was an every day thing with her. They had all raised cane all night and the next day more joined them. The kids didn’t have to be drunk but just went along with their drunk mom. Their border o their driveway ran right past our kitchen window. I would not have anything to do with them and they were trying to make life miserable for us. They were throwing strings of fireworks under our kitchen window and another kid was burning rubber driving up their real steep driveway. The air reeked of rubber. A police officer came and told them to knock it off. Finally I had enough of the fireworks under our window, so I quietly had Joe bring the water hose around and then perched my self on the railing of the porch with hose and the daughter came around with a whole string of fireworks already lit and got by our window and then saw me and she ran back with the fireworks still lit to her yard. That was one of the many things but that sticks out in my mind. She died and her husband had already passed away so the youngest boy got the house. We tried to get along with him but it is impossible to get along with an out and out alcoholic.
