The fit couldn't be any better. THANK YOU Phylly. When we are TOGETHER, we get the fit perfected on both of us. It is a crime that we can't be together more. If it wasn't for Jerry, I think I would sell this place at the lake and move up to the City permanently so I could have friends. I have lots of friends up there. I have none down here. It gets really lonely here. I've even considered going back to work, but I don't want that stress. Hence, I sew -- and sew -- and sew -- It's a good thing I get to go to lunch with my friends in the City so I have someplace to wear what I make! We do have new neighbors moving in next door, so I am hoping and praying that the lady will like me. Everyone likes Jerry, but he is too busy for friends.
I drove by our other "new neighbors" this morning that moved in about a year ago in the big two-story pink house on five acres. It is a dentist, his wife, two kids and two dogs. The neighbors that are moving told me that the dentist and his wife are not friendly at all. They are 30, if that. The kids are very young. I drove by their house, as I said, and I noticed the little girl -- about 3 or 4 -- jumping on one of those giant trampolines that is way up off the ground.
It used to have the protective screens around it, but they blew away in a storm, I think. So she was jumping with NO protection. Jerry just happens to have done an evaluation on a woman last week who is paralyzed from the neck down from falling off a trampoline like that and breaking her neck. I ALMOST -- I came SO CLOSE to it -- stopped and walked around the back to find the Mother. I wanted to warn her how dangerous it was and that the little girl could get hurt seriously without the protective screens on the big trampoline. There was a day when I WOULD have done just that. But now, I know that people consider that butting into their business, and they don't want buttinski neighbors telling them what to do. Ask me HOW I know that????
I have lost many a friend by trying to tell them one thing or another about their kids. I had a neighbor/friend for a very short time once. I went over to her house to talk to her, and her bratty little girl kept interruping us. The mother would tell her to go play, but the little girl just kept talking on top of us. The mother picked the little girl up in her arms. The Mother said something to me, and the little girl pulled her arm back and slung her hand forward and SLAPPED her Mother in the face and said, "I don't WANT you to talk to HER!" I was absolutely blown away! I waited for the Mother to put her down, spank her butt and make her go to her room. Nope. She did nothing. I left. Never saw her again. In the case of my neighbors, I'll just have to pray that God protects the little girl and her even littler brother.
Jerry is home and Dancing With The Stars is on tonight. Our very, very, very favorite show! I LOVE to dance.
