I found out today that our next door neighbors are moving out tomorrow. Sad. A couple with a young, bright, engaging young son who Zoe (our dog) and I will miss. The son was always shy, loved Zoe but never petted her, and liked to tell me about his day at school and show me a new toy.
Two years ago we had a major league baseball player in the same place. His son shrieked for a month, then started hitting his head against my desk in our living room, then began hurling his entire body against their/our wall. I was glad when they didn’t make the Series. If they move back we’ll have to leave because by now that kid can probably pummel through and literally get into our living room and that is unacceptable.
We’ll see who is next and where we’ll be. Dee
