Did a little baby sittin' the other day and it was a piece of cake. Donavan loves to get in my truck and explore. However, just like the other kids in the neighborhood, he doesn't listen to me. In fact, he does the opposite of what I tell him to do. “Don’t lock the doors, Donavan!” He locks them. “Time to come out, Donavan!” He doesn’t. “Don’t play with the sharp tools, don’t open the paint cans and put that cap back on the container of acetone, Donavan! No, no, it’s not water! PUT THE CORDLESS SAW DOWN, DONAVAN!!!" The great thing about being confined to the truck is that I don’t have to chase him all over the place. “Unlock the door and come out, Donavan.” He looks at me and laughs. When mom came home, I told him to make sure the door was locked and not to come out. Doing the opposite, he unlocked the door, opened it and jumped out. And he thinks he fooled me....Checked to see if he had all his fingers and toes and sent him home.

My neighbors are the best! Besides the gal with the "tongue from heaven," I have another neighbor that can only be considered "first class" when it comes to wine drinking. I've never seen a bottle this big! I'm surprised she's still standing, because she refused to share the wine with anyone else.

A short time later, she came up missing. Went looking for her.........

This is what we found.

Such a tragic loss of life. How difficult it must be for those close to the victims to have to find a way to cope with this sad event. Even more so, for the parents of the wrongdoer. For those directly confronted with this incident, let's hope the mental anguish they suffer, will subside with time.

And once again, Bob arose from the ............bed.

Remember my neighbor from hell??? I need to do something nice for her today. I am going to take a nice picture of her during Bob's annual Easter breakfast and egg hunt. It's time to see the "pretty side" of her.

Looks like a grandma in the making

Now for my nice deed.........A better picture of my not so bright neighbor from hell.

Nothing has changed in three years. Well, at least I tried.
