Today is January 5th. My neighbors just removed the Halloween pumpkins from their front porch.

My neighborʼs in-ground pool seems to be leaking.

Weʼre on a hill, and their house is about five feet higher than mine, with a cement block wall dividing their elevated yard from my lower yard.

Thereʼs a slow trickle of water coming through the block wall.

Itʼs kind of nice, like a free tranquil burbling water feature. Iʼm sure Charlie Dimmock would approve.

In the street this afternoon:

Neighbor: Hi, Wayne!

Me: Hey, Peter. Been quiet around your place lately.

Peter: Yeah, we were visiting my mom.

Me: Yeah, Annie told me.

Peter: Isnʼt Annie your cat?

Me: Yeah.

Peter: You talk to your cat?

Me: No, that would be crazy. She talks to me.

Peter: …long pause… Well, I gotta go check on the kidsʼ homework now. See you later!

Darcie says things like this are why his family doesnʼt come to our door for trick-or-treat.

Incognito children

New neighbors are moving in across the street. Last night the parents arrived. This morning a big Bekins truck arrived. This afternoon, the kids arrived. I guess every day is Halloween in that house now.

My neighbors tempting fate

I donʼt think Iʼve ever mentioned that my neighbors are super smart. This is why.

My neighbor across the street is standing in his driveway putting together a brand new, enormous red scythe! Heʼs from Russia, so he really knows how to hammer that sickle!

In other news, there is no Soviet flag emoji.

In other other news, someplace around here sells seven-foot-long scythes!

Wayward blossoms

I hope my neighbors like flowers, because my flowers sure like the neighbors!
