I'm a Snoop!

I didn't realize what a snoop I am until we moved here where our neighbors are so close.  There has been a fire, several ambulances (remember, we're on "Geezer St."), the coroner's van - that was interesting, since it was right across the road, approx three car widths. 

The elderly couple that lives across and down one have a lot of health problems.  He's nearly blind and deaf, and she's in and out of the hospital.  So, on Thanksgiving, the ambulance picked her up and then yesterday, the family came to town.  Of course, I'm concerned for her well-being, but still wonder what happened.  Tonight, about 6:00, in the rain, a pick-up truck pulled up with signage across the side "Fire - - - ".  It was definitely a beefed-up truck with lots of equipment, but not a regular county fire vehicle.  All of the lights went on in every room and they started hauling in some sort of equipment.  Now, mind you - I can't be hanging out my door watching, so I peeked through the blinds, but you can't see as much.  

The truck stayed until 11:30 - and I still don't know what's up.  Maybe someone left a pan on the stove when they went to the hospital and it smoked up the place.  I kept bugging hubman to go across the street and ask (kidding him) but he wouldn't go, so my snooping didn't do a bit of good.  I came up with all sorts of scenarios but, darn it, no answers.  

All I know is we sure hope they're all alright!!!

My neighbor is our investigator, protector and helper. He doesn't worry a single second if anyone might think he's nosy. He just wants to know all of the neighbors. He is also the first one to help out anyone who needs it.

All of this to say that I feel blessed to have such a good friend in him... and that I don't have to peek out my blinds to know what's happening in the neighborhood.

You've got to get yourself a good pair of night-vision goggles and some binoculars!

Seriously, though, I hope that everything is okay with your neighbors.

You act just like my husband. He's just got to know what's going on in the neighborhood. I thinks it's fun. You'll find out soon I'm sure.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug. :)

It's only natural to be curious. I also hope everything and everyone is alright.

Enjoy your Sunday. Big hugs, honey...
