If anyone has watched TV Land and caught an episode of Bewitched(I watched it when they aired the program on regular television….(you know, on the big behind tv that sat on the floor with KNOBS and no remote…yeah, that thing-a-ma-jig.) Well,if you did then, you should be familiar with their nosey neighbor, Mrs. Kravitz.
Gladys Kravitz was always snooping around Darren and Samantha, peeking inside of the windows and popping up at the house, always trying to find out what the heck was really going on inside of that house. She didn’t miss anything.
I have a confession to make….
I am the Gladys Kravitz of my area.
I don’t go as far as she did, but, I don’t miss anything either.* hanging head in shame, now looking up,head tilted to the side to see what’s going on*
Everyone around here is like that though. That is, the people who were back here before Katrina are.
Where’s what Mrs. Kratvitz(moi) has noticed…..the neighbors behind me have been MIA for about a month now. They purchased the house after the storm(I saw the real estate transaction in the newspaper….always looking to see who is moving around me.) At first, everyone was worried because, since the storm, people have been buying houses and you don’t know who is going to move around you but, they were really cool neighbors.
Except for New Years 2008. They had guests that went across the street from the house, popped firecrackers and SET THE GOLF COURSE ON FIRE. I’m downstairs and I started to smell smoke so, I open the door and look in the front..nothing there, look to the back of the house…FIRE ON THE GOLF COURSE!
You could smell smoke in the house for three damned days.
There has been no activity in the house for over month…no cars, no lights on….nada. They must have moved because, the grill is gone, the outside patio furniture…gone. The three big behind garbage cans the city gave everyone(you’re only suppose to have one..they had three of’em)…gone.
They only lived in the house for a year. That’s an odd blip because they purchased the house gutted out and fixed it up to live in it and now, they’re gone. No “for sale” sign..nothing. I hope nothing has terrible happened to them. We were just getting to know them.
When their daughter graduated, they invited the neighbors over to the party which was nice(my neighbor said, that’s so we couldn’t call the police when they tried to do all of that “boomity-boom” loud music late at night when people are trying to rest…lol.) They seemed to really like the area, it’s really quiet back here and most people dig that. Even the neighbor right next door to them is perplexed. If they moved, it must have been in the middle of the night because, no one saw any time of moving van around there or anything…. it’s all so spooky.
I guess I’ll have to keep my “radar” on and see if anything pops up. I’ll keep you all posted.
