Starting next week, I will be starting a new "series of Bible Challenges titled Teachings--Part I, Part II and Part III. Of course I will only do one part per week, as always 10 questions. I feel that these are definitely important to "recall" or to learn, so I will do all three parts, 1 per week.

Men's Monday Meme

Relationships

ME: Do you think people have become too cop-happy these days?
HIM: Yes, they have become too cop-happy.

ME: What happened to working out neighborly disputes between ourselves?
HIM: It's easier to call the cops than deal with the problem yourself.


ME: I know times have changed, but have they changed that much?
HIM: Yes, they have definitely changed that much. You never know if a person is going to pull a gun on you or not.

ME: Am I missing something?
HIM: I don't know, are you?

Gotta love that sarcasm) LOL!
As was the last time, "short and sweet!

In answer to your last question about confrontations with neighbors, yes we have, and we moved. It was right after we moved to Comanche. At the time, we were living in "public housing". We tried to get in the area with the elderly and disabled, because my husband is disabled, and it was the "quieter" section of housing. We are quiet people, we don't party, drink, or even really socialize. We pretty much stay to ourselves. Anyway, the only apartment they had open was naturally in the "rowdy" part of housing. They told us we "probably" wouldn't have to be there long, but there were no openings where we wanted to be. So we ended up being in that section for 14 months. The people next door and across the street were ALWAYS partying. One day when I was volunteering ( I taught Literacy and ESL to adults in an office in town ) my husband came in all red-faced sweaty and out of breath and said he couldn't take it anymore that the friend of the guy across the street came over and threatened him AND my dog. I was afraid he (my hubby, not the dog) was gonna have Another heart-attack, so I called one of the local real estate offices and found a house out in the country AWAY from PEOPLE that same day. We were out the next day.

Good Night to All and May God Bless!
