The quirky neighbor. Every neighborhood has one, right? Ours lives diagonally across from us.
The couple who used to live across from us.. well the wife worked in the park's office and her husband kept us up on all the gossip. Now that they've moved I guess we're on our own. Anyway..
The quirky guy is married but his wife works out of town. Rumor has it that when she's home they have occasional loud arguments. We haven't seen or heard anything like that yet probably because the wife hasn't been home much (yeah, we watch for her car) and because our windows were closed all winter.
Lately though the guy has been obsessing about his yard. Any kid on a bike that comes near it gets an earful from him. He's gone down the street and had loud discussions with some parents more than once. I swear the guy must need treatment for hemorrhoids or something the way he acts.
Yesterday he had the police in front of his place. Gesturing wildly toward his yard and then at I suppose what would be kids if any had been around.
He doesn't ever bother us.. but he gives us something to watch and roll our eyes at. Maybe we're a bit quirky, too.
Do you have any quirky neighbors?
