To our right, very nice family of four. Young boy who never shuts up aged around 8, and an 11 year old daughter who is super shy. But they both love our dog and come into our yard and throw sticks for him. I look at it as free walks.
To our left is a gay couple. No clue what their jobs are because they are home at more random times than I am...and I have the most random work schedule of anyone I know. The fact they are gay is not interesting until you meet our across the street neighbors...
...who are extremely by the book religious. Put up giant signs around the holidays and a few times have had banners angled towards our gay neighbors about man and woman and blah blah blah. Anyway, the rest of the neighborhood always kinds of laughs about it, but I guess it got pretty heated a few years ago before we moved in and the cops were called. The signs are now taken down in a timely fashion when holidays end and the banners are only up for 24 hours at a time. Must’ve been some sort of “compromise”.
Also, I know like 3 of the names of the 8 people I just mentioned and certainly none of the rest. My wife though, she knows them all, where they went to college, how long in the neighborhood etc. Without her, I’d probably be the neighbor everyone complains about being grumpy and unfriendly lol.
