Whew! Just spent 24+ hours in the midst of a trio of 15 year-old boys who were supposed to go to an airsoft game that got rained-out. So of course they spent a good part of the day between rain showers out in the yard shooting at assorted targets fetched from the recycle bin until my nieghbor, who I have not laid eyes on in the 7 months I have lived here came over to express concern that her dogs might catch a stray plactic BB. While she was at it, she introduced herself.

Legitimate concern, though I was watching the boys and they were being careful.

While she was at it, she also asked if the dogs caused me any problems.

With a big, friendly grin to match her own, I told her how extremely annoying it is to live next door to a large barking dog who is bored and tethered outside 24-7, a small Jack Russell that is turned outside to run loose every night and will come and stand about 6 feet in front of me and bark non-stop if I try to sit out in my front yard at night, and a black cat that thinks I have bird feeders up for it's dining pleasure and that I finally got my porch furniture set up so that he would have somewhere soft to sleep at night where he can leave his fur and flea nits.

We both allowed as it was nice to finally meet, she headed back across the property to her house, and I went back to fixing grilled cheese sandwiches for the kids.

I need a drink!
