Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

I guess our new neighbors are not as bad as when we lived in Sewer Flats (shudder shudder) — thankfully they are not nudies; however, the new neighbors are really odd.  And I mean O.D.D.

Me and Geoff the Great realized
a few days ago that the little farm house down the road came open for
rent, and then before we knew it, a new family was moving in.  Click here to see who is moving in.  There goes the neighborhood.

In other news, Coie left for California today.  What in the world am I going to do without that girl for a whole week?

    Your sister is moving down the road and mine is pregnant, although I wish my sister was moving down the road (in NC) and pregnant. *sigh* Oh I miss her….

    God Bless,

    HOW EXCITING!!! Plus that means more funny fodder for blogland. 🙂

    *big huge SIGH*

    Now I am doubly-extremely-uber-super-dee-duper jealous of the both of ya!!! Well, for two reasons… One, no sibling o’ mine lives even less than a 4 hour drive away. Two, *I* want to be neighbors with y’all!

    Let me know if anything else in the area becomes available, k?



    PS What are you going to do without that frogiggie girl of yours???

    I know you will your Coie girl. Prayers that the week will go smoothly and she returns safely and has a wonderful time. Surely she will miss you all!

    How exciting for you and Gena. I am sure this new move will be such a blessings to both your families. It’s not like your not together all the time anyway.

    See you soon!

    Aren't they some of those….Homeschoolers?

    Man, those homeschoolers are a whole different kind of scary! You might want to keep your kids away from them, or they might pick up some bad habits: obedience to parents, love of God, curiosity about life, good manners, snake-handling (wait, your kids will teach that to THEM)…

    Okay, now I have to go and give them the same warning.

    Ever closer

    Hey Mrs. Ig,

    I guess this means your “you know what”-in-law will be even closer. I would just be careful that this isn’t the next stage in some bizarre ploy of his to bring your entire family into some form of medieval serfdom. Just a thought….

    Dear Mr. Garrison; i very rarely actually ‘laugh out loud’. Imagine my surprise when your comment made me do exactly that. And I applaud your use of the word serfdom. It’s not too often that one can use serfdom in everyday conversation.

    As for my Loser-in-Law (as opposed to his self proclamation of Lord-in-Law), we both know who’s in charge.

    I read this to Paul aloud and he died laughing. Jen, he says he’s on the way over to teach you a lesson. He said to have the coffee on, heh heh.

    ‘on his way over to teach me a lesson’, eh? While he’s gone you should prepare some bandages, and a needle and thread for stiches, and find the extra strength tylenol so it’ll be ready for him when he limps home.

    How fun for y’all 🙂 I never had a sister but most of my SILs are wonderful. I would love to live closer than 1500 miles away from one of them.

    btw thanks for hankerin’ by my blog and leaving that grand compliment…

    God bless

    Is the L-i-L’s blogging silence an indication of inner strength without words, or just an indication that he’s already given up the fight and knows better than to enter the public arena? (Please go easy on him. He’s a little more elderly than the rest of you guys.)

    BTW, Mrs. Ig, how’s this for a weak attempt at serfdom in a sentence? “With hit after hit throughout the 60s and 70s, for years the Beach Boys reigned over their own little rock n roll surfdom.”

    I am truly honoured that I got a “laugh out loud” response. I probably should have quit while I was ahead. (grin)

    What a blessing

    To have a kindred spirit within walking distance is truly a blessing. Great neighbors, and better let friends, add to a our lives. How nice it would be to have another woman near by during the day.

    You are SO spoiled!

    I can’t imagine anything better! Now, every time you see a home become available in your neighborhood–you’ll have to get someone from HSB to move in. You’ll take over the state before you know it!

    Your new neighbors sound tolerable…

    at the very least! 😉 And as far as nudie neighbors, we had one once so I feel I can share with you in spirit… let us both chant in unison, “ICCKKK! ICCKK! ICCCKK!” Let me say that if I never see that former neighbor again, I will probably still be having nightmares wen I am 95 involving his bright blue sparkly spandex bike shorts or outfits with even less left to the imagination! EWWWW!
