private property

I know I complain a lot on here; maybe that's why I don't have a huge following, but I have to let it out somewhere.

So we now live in "base housing" (but not on the actual base)... Our house is on the corner of two streets, thus at the end of a row of connected houses (5, I think). Maybe that's why, but we get a lot of uninvited guests. One Saturday I was in the kitchen, and as I watched out the window 5 separate groups of people walked by, and every one of them cut the corner and walked through our yard. Adults, even. Several would see me and move on to the sidewalk. I guess I'm not supposed to care because it's not really *my* house.
On 3 or 4 occasions, people will drive through our yard to load or unload something to their back door. Now, if they'd asked, we'd say yes. But they didn't ask! And the thing is, we are responsible for having grass in our yard. When we move out we have to make sure all those tire tracks are covered.

Thanks for the vent.

We had a lovely dinner tonight of Meemaw's chicken casserole with salad and cucumber, followed by a "pudding pie cake" with oreo crust, peanut butter in the cream cheese layer, and homemade chocolate pudding. WOW! I cut small pieces. :-)

Oh I hate that too! The number of times we've found complete strangers wandering through our yard because we have a track down the hill to the water & they want to have a look at the *waterfront* that attaches to the next property which is for sale....!!! How difficult is it to knock & ask? At least we could warn them of the hazards & that its both steep & slippery. It's rude, that's what it is.

I'm afraid I'd do more than vent on a Blog... I'd have a reputation as "the mean grump in the house on the end of the block!" :/
