No, but she DID say, "Cool! I've got myself a shiny new girlfriend" as I moseyed on home.

This was after we ascertained each other's ages. First she said she was the same age as I (43) and I must have looked a little skeptical because she said, "Just kidding! I'm old enough to be your mother." That seemed surprising too ... she didn't seem MUCH older. She laughed & said, "Thirteen years, that's old enough."

Ok, now the Deliverence is no longer funny and I'm now getting flashbacks of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. You know that guy could still be on the loose.

Theresa, you've just got the knack for pulling the best out of folks... and you always seem to meet the NICEST folks...

I'm glad that at least you don't have to post pickets before you hit the rack...

What a relief!! From the description of the area, etc. I was getting worried about you!!

So, I guess there will be no large, unwrapped Airstreams from Illinois in my driveway anytime soon...

OK, also, I have to tell a short story about Neighbor to the North ... Tommy, whose wife is Edna. Shortly after I moved in, I ran out of dry firewood & asked Edna whether I could use some of theirs until I can get a new load in (I admit, bad move to start mooching off the neighbors first thing but hell, it's just wood) ... she said sure & gave me some astoundingly complicated instructions about which end of the stack I could use & not the small stuff, etc. etc. ...

Sure sign that the firewood is a complicated issue so stay away, right?

No, because remember I've been dumb since I was 37. So for about a week, I go over & get an armload every evening until one fateful Sunday. I get some wood & am putting it in the wood stove, door still propped open, and next thing I know, Tom & his daughter have burst INTO MY HOME screaming for me to put back all the firewood I "stole."

I was totally confused & shaken up. Got a truckload of wood, stacked the whole damn thing in their yard & have steered very clear of them since. Noticed, though, that they got a puppy. Dying to go pet the puppy. So, today, emboldened by the hooch & happiness at Chrissy's, I see Tom motoring back from a fishing trip with the pup so I saunter over & say "Hey Tom, new dog, eh" like nothing ever happened between us. And he's obviously pleased that I took that step & even apologizes for being a jerk earlier. So we're talking & neighbor other side of him named Charlene comes by to chat with her dog & then along comes Missy, who lives OTHER side of Charlene (An earlier note about her from Charlene: "Missy lives with Lori and they're 'together' but they're nice") ... so suddenly I remember to tell Tom that one of the guys who sponsored my b'friend to join the local boat club two weeks ago, a nice guy named Larry, turned out to be Tom's daughter's father-in-law. "Oh, he's in a bad way," Charlene said. "Huh?" I said. "Yeah, they had to cut off his leg today," she said.

Clearly I was the only one in the group not up on the river gossip. Turns out Larry, the father-in-law, had a long day last Sunday at the boat club, which mainly exists to dole out alcohol, and somehow dropped a cigarette while driving home AND BLEW UP HIS CAR & THE CAR IN FRONT OF HIM and is in the hospital in a coma with a leg cut off.

Where's Chrissy? I need a drink.
