Another Day Dawns…

Neighborly Bliss…

The amount of traffic to and fro from my former drug dealing neighbor’s house has dropped by about 90%.  It has been uncannily quiet over there these days.  He came over to talk to me late yesterday afternoon.  He wanted to know if the shrubbery between our houses was his or mine.  “It’s yours,” I told him.  He seems like a personable and nice enough guy.  Maybe the economy forced him into selling drugs.  I don’t know, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt.  He started to trim the shrubbery around his house and I didn’t have the heart to tell him he should have done that in the fall and not the spring.  I hope all his shrubbery doesn’t die.

Helen Friday…

Mom quickly queued in on my wanting Helen’s Friday fish fry today.  She has made sure Helen has that special kind of white fish she has to have from the Piggly Wiggly.  “You’ve stirred up a hornet’s nest with regards to your mother and that meal,” dad told me. “Your mother is obsessed now.  She has just been wild about getting that fish for Helen.”  That’s the kind of dogged determination mom is so well known for in the family.

Good Morning Sir Andrew!

Sounds like the neighbor might not be too bad. I don't think you should join his parties or anything, but having finally met him should help ease your paranoia a little.

And congrats on your Friday fish fry. I know how much you love Helen's traditional fixin's. Sure wish I lived lots closer - I'd try to hire her to cook for me a couple of times a week. I never cook "real" meals like that.

Hope you have a wonderful and stress free weekend, my friend.

Love,
Grannie
