Happy July! Let the heatwaves begin!
 In my last post, I mentioned having new neighbors upstairs, next door and a few doors down.
Well, suddenly we have an issue. An issue we didn’t have with our old neighbors..
First up. I keep my blinds open all day because I choose not to live like a vampire. The day the new neighbors moved in was no different. I’m sitting there crocheting and watching my British shows and out of the corner of my eye, I see this empty cardboard box go flying thru the air from the new neighbor’s direction.

In my mind I’m thinking, I know they’re not just gonna’ let that shit go flyin’ around and not pick it up.  – They didn’t.
A kid I’d never seen before went running after it and started kicking it around.
Cool. Whatever. Moving is boring for kids. I get it.

Then I look up and this same kid is walking back and forth in my part of the backyard looking in my windows! What the hell?? Can I just tell you? It’s a little more than annoying to have some weirdo kid staring at you all day. I so wish I had been naked. That lit’l peeping Tom would’ve needed eye bleach for a year!

Fortunately, when I got up to go outside he scattered and I haven’t seen – key word being seen – him since. Clearly, he’s doing his thievery at night or when we’re not home. And honestly, it’s not so much that he’s taking shit off of my patio as much as it is that he’s coming onto my patio.
Where I come from that’s a good way to get shot.

I would mention this to his parents but they don’t speak English. They’re refugees from I don’t know where but they’re very colorfully wrapped from head to toe.
Did I mention that they don’t speak English?

To date, their klepto kid has a total of 4 lighters and one ink pen left there on purpose to see if he’d take that too. He did.
Can’t wait to see what he does with them and when.
On the plus side, they don’t have a dog.
That would be the other neighbors that moved in..
In other news – I’d just like to be like everyone else and whine about the heat.
It’s flippin’ hot!
Again, this weekend. Let’s be kind to our animals and veterans alike.

I hope all of you have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend.
Happy July and stay cool my friends!

    1. Really? Cold days?? I’ll trade you. Some of ours for some of yours?? 😀 I hope he quits too it’s a real pain having to gather up everything we take outside that we would normally leave out. – And thank you for the 4th of July wishes. It’s going to be so stinkin’ hot. We have one bbq to go to and I’m hoping we don’t have to stay too long.


  1. I think you are being very patient considering the kid is doing this repeatedly .If the neighbours don’t speak English may be you can talk about thus with your neighbourhood watch! t’s very hot here in India too and I wish one done I van step out of a helicopter with a diet coke in hand !That aspiration.

    1. Thank you so much. Unfortunately we do not have a neighborhood watch. We don’t have a lot of crime here and this boy is more of an annoyance than anything. I haven’t seen him out and about but I’m certain he speaks English and when I do see him he’ll get an earful! 🙂


  2. There’s got to be some kind of trap you can lay for that little shit. God I hate people. As for your temps, ‘at least it’s a dry heat’. hahaha It’s 84 here but with high humidity. Happy 4th of July!

    1. Oh, trust me. I will get that little shithead. And yeah.. “at least it’s a dry heat..” Holy hell. I’m inside with the AC full blast reading, crafting and watching British TV. – I FINALLY got caught up on all of your posts! What the heck?? I added Facebook Purity to my Facebook so now I can see ALL of my friends’ posts first. 🙂


  3. Closes place to me now is empty and I know in our neighborhood there people who has a lot better stuff.
    The good thing I can sun bath nude on the deck, depend who we get for new neighbors if I will change my habits or not.
    Coffee is on

  4. Wow, Karen, I cannot believe that new neighbor’s kid just coming on your patio, stealing your stuff, and looking in your windows staring at you. WTF?! Super annoying, borderline creepy. It makes it really difficult that you can’t even talk to his parents because they don’t speak English.

    Wishing you a Happy 4th of July! Oh, I just love the quote about Frank, he was the coolest!
