Friday Letters-March 6th Edition

 
I'd love to have you join me in writing Friday Letters. And sign the link below !
 
 
Dear Neighbor Who Walks his Dog:
 
I think walking your dog is pretty cool. I have even often thought I'd stick to my walking schedule better if I had a dog to walk. But what kind of nerve does it take to pause in the street while your dog poops in my yard? I know that my lawn isn't the best on the block, but I still don't want your dog's poop in my yard. Carry a little baggie with you and pick it up!
 
Dear High School Girl Tutor:
 
Yippee! He made a C on his chapter test. Thank you for your dedicated help this past two weeks. Together we might whip this problem with Algebra.
 
Dear Facebook parent:
 
You asked the question: When is it too young to have an account for my daughter on Instagram? The answer to this question is: Instagram's rules are that child must be 13. When you tell everyone that your 12 year old has had an account since she was 8 and then become offended that people are questioning why you would allow your child to lie I question if you are really wanting an answer to your question or if you are looking for people to say that letting your kid break the rules is okay. Just my humble opinion.
 
Dear Mother Nature:
 
I understand how hard it is for you to let winter leave quietly. Really, I do. But you can't have the temperature be 7* one day and 60* the next. It just isn't right. We'll keep the sun and the 60's though. Please? Pretty please.

  1. I cannot believe that guy let his dog poop in your yard. I would have taken him a plastic bag and handed it to him with a smile and a "what a great dog" comment.

    1. LOL! That would be a good thing to do!

  2. I think I would be tempted to open the door and stand outside when the guy walks the dog. I have seen people leaving signs on their grass asking people to pick up the droppings. Sad people can't take the proper precautions to clean up after their pets. Yea for the C!!!!!

    1. I have been standing on the porch. He doesn't look up from his phone. And I am not going to start anything.....too many crazy people out there in this day and age.

  4. I love your Friday letters, but can't join anything right now. I think we may be a little bit responsible for mother nature's problems. We are supposed to have winter and snow here in the mountains, instead, just like last year, we have cold nights and springtime weather during the day. I so agree with the poop issue. Have you talked to this person about it? Finally, thank you so much for your support in this difficult time I'm having. It means the world to me and I know I have found a new friend in you.

    1. I understand Inger. I know what you are going through. I continue to think of you everyday and hoping that soon there will be good news for you to share with us about your husband!!

  5. No doggie bag! Open the door while it is happening and just stare him down. I have even cleaned, followed and deposited on the doorstep. Yup. Lessons....

    Also, I have put my link up on this a couple times? It is working? you had a few before. Now it shows one.

    1. It's better to just vent. Never know what neighbor has a gun stuck in their pants nowadays. I think the link is working. I've clicked through on both of the ones that are there. I wouldn't know how to fix it if it wasn't LOL

  6. Oh I know the dog and the using my yard thing! Most of the time they pick it up - but sometimes they just leave it. And then there was the person who did put it in a baggie, but left it out in the snow in front of my yard.... Not sure who - but it was there! Gross having to pick it up!! And mother nature - arghhh - we had 50 degree weather on Wednesday - and then yesterday, we got 9 inches of snow!

  7. Oh Paula that is so annoying when people just let their dogs do that! You know, I think you should get a lion, one that is friendly with you and your family of course, and let him just lie on your lawn. That out to get the point across! I am very glad Darian did so well on his test, take that algebra!!!! Oh how I loathe algebra! Yes, that Instagram thing. That is so wrong!!!! I think it happens a lot. And your weather is not right at all!! She needs to fix that ASAP!! Have a great weekend! xo

    1. Hi Ellie! I always love what you have to say. Getting a lion would be the perfect solution. I didn't do well in algebra either. Hence the need for a tutor. And I have no idea why people let their kids sign up for social media before they are the proper age. Guess teaching them to lie is okay with people....

  8. Congrats to Darian for that "C"! :)
    My own memory's fading, but I suspect my parents would have been doing a Happy Dance if I'd scored a "C" in Algebra. (Nasty stuff.)
    Tom's daughter allowed 3/4's of her tribe to join Facebook when they were still in grade school. I told Tom he could do what he wanted, but I wasn't going to support their participation by accepting their 'friend' requests. I've got to believe there's a reason behind every rule - made by those lots wiser than me.

    1. LOL! I would have happily had a C in algebra in high school too! It is crazy how many parents have no problem at all with letting their kids break rules, isn't it?

  9. In our city, it's required you pick up after your pets. However, it doesn't mean I don't constantly see leavings right on the sidewalk down main street. *Sighs

    So great to hear about the C on the test! Very respectable, especially for someone struggling so hard. *High Fives*

    1. Thanks Jennifer. It gives me hope for him. Yes, our city has the same law but I don't think it is enforced in neighborhoods!

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
