The One About The Neighbors: What Will Be, What Isn’t Anymore, And What Is

Neighbor’s dead tree with turkey vultures [or turkey buzzards, pick your nomenclature]: I don’t like this.
WHAT WILL BE:

“Come and listen to my story bout a man named Jed, Poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed…”  

Remember The Beverly Hillbillies? And remember their theme song?

Of course you do.

Well, that’s the song that’s been stuck in brain this past weekend.

Why?

I know not for sure other than Thanksgiving is about hospitality– and somehow seeing turkey vultures lounging above our property on the neighbor’s dead tree, that leans precariously in the direction of our screened-in porch, put the tune in my mind.

I don’t know that Jed Clampett shot turkey vultures, but it seems like something he’d have done.  I do know that the dead tree will eventually fall.  Fingers crossed, not on our roof.

So there’s that.

• • •

Neighbor’s empty backyard: I like this.

WHAT ISN’T ANYMORE:

“Well the first thing you know Jed’s a millionaire, Kinfolk said Jed move away from there…”

And speaking of neighbors I’ve taken the liberty of sharing with you, my gentle readers, a photograph of their empty backyard.  A backyard that is free from a huge, formerly well-used, swing set that is no longer there.

While I admit that the kids playing on the swing set were hilarious and the squirrels frolicking on the swing set were total goofballs, I’m happy that it’s gone from my view.

The neighbor kids are old enough to drive now and the swing set has disappeared, presumably to some other backyard where it’ll be loved as much as it was here.

Change happens, eh?

• • •

Neighbor’s wistful cat: I like him.

WHAT IS:

“You’re all invited back again to this locality, To have a heaping helping of their hospitality…”  

And finally while I’m on the topic of neighbors, here is a photo of their black and white kitty cat as seen on a foggy morning.

I don’t know his name, but he occasionally likes to sit under one of our trees.  He’s a natural, knowing how to pose for the camera– and takes a darned good picture.

He’s not destructive, just inquisitive, and not afraid to hang out in our yard when so moved by his need for a little peace and quiet away from kids and dogs.

I can understand.

Questions of the Day

{ answer whichever question OR questions strike your fancy }

  1. So what’s up with your neighbors?  Any of their trees poised to fall on your house? Anything missing from their yards? Any of their pets enjoying a respite in your yard?
  2. Can you sing The Beverly Hillbillies theme song from memory like I can?  How about Gilligan’s Island theme song?  Or The Flintstone’s theme song? 
  3. Do you believe I could get any more rambling and random than I have in this post?  And how does that make you feel?

  1. Well, you still make a lot of sense, so indeed you could be a lot more “”rambling and random” – you should read some of the e-mails I get at work – now THOSE are rambling. The neighbor’s picture makes it look like we live on the side of a mountain. It doesn’t FEEL that sloped but I guess it is. No wonder my ankles hurt after cutting the grass. All cats are invited to visit and take whatever mice, chipmunks or moles they want with them. Loved the post – love to think about our surroundings and interaction with nature . . . even when it is a flock of turkey vultures.

  2. Our neighbor’s large oak tree is capable of taking out his or our house. Hopefully it doesn’t ever fall. It’s home to many squirrels who come begging in our yard. We do feed them, so I understand.

  6. Random is always good Ally Bean, that is one of the hallmarks of my own blog. Many of those songs still are etched in my brain, but if I start thinking about them then they won’t leave so I’m sticking with classic Christmas songs in honor of the season. I really thought that this post was headed in a different direction at first, what with the dead tree, empty lot and huge birds lurking. I expected you to tell us it had been ages since you noticed the neighbors and were on the verge of calling authorities to come investigate.

  7. Rambling randomness is okay, Ally. I do it all the time on my blog. Ha!

    About question # 1: On our former property, a huge oak tree was poised to fall on our upstairs bedroom. Several tons worth! We had to pay to have it removed because the neighbors said they couldn’t afford to. Maybe your and your neighbor could split the removal cost if they don’t take action soon. Just a thought . . .

    Liked by 2 people

    1. marian, I like your idea of sharing the cost. So far we’ve had one tree [our own] fall on our house and one tree [a neighbor’s] fall parallel one foot away beside our house. We paid for one to be removed and used our chainsaw to do in the other one, putting the logs into the forest behind us. Wooded lots are lovely– until they’re not. 😐

  8. 1. No, but I’m sure the new neighbors who just moved in next to me last month eye my everything, including the trees. They are meticulous about cleaning their yard of leaves and….. well, I prefer to let nature do its thing. At least I am helping to keep them busy little bees. As for missing… no. But the neighbors on the other side of me put up their lights with half of one of the strands that runs along the roof laying in a pile on the ground… it cracks me up. Pets…. yes, Gypsy still comes to me door to eat most days.

    2. I don’t know if I’ve ever watched an entire episode of The Beverly Hillbillies before. Despite it being on reruns on almost every channel when I was growing up, it never really crossed my path before. I can still sing the theme to The Patty Duke Show and The Super Mario Brothers Super Show…

    3. Random makes me feel…. well, random. Never knowing what to expect makes me unable to know how I’ll feel. Make sense?

I’m glad that Gypsy is still visiting you. Bet she doesn’t care about the leaves…

      The Beverly Hillbillies seemed to be in constant reruns for a while there. I rarely saw The Patty Duke Show, though. In fact I didn’t know there was a theme song for it.

    I live in rural America – my yard is 5 acres, so although I can see my neighbors (and there is a new house going up next door on the north side) they are all far enough away I catch only glimpses through the trees now and then.

    There’s a black and white cat, a tuxedo gentleman, who wanders around the garden in the back. It’s the nicest prettiest litter box he could find, I’m sure. As for your questions, the only neighbor that comes to mind in this instant is the one who can’t seem to ever put a lid on her trash and recycle cans, hence her trash, etc. flies all over the street with the wind. Also, I never watched the Hillbillies, hence I don’t know the song. And as for the how does that make you feel… I can’t lie down right now, hence I don’t feel comfortable answering that.

  12. I indeed get rambling random pretty often. I find it cleansing when my head’s all jumbled up. And if you’d said “hey, sing this theme song” I’d say I couldn’t but sure enough, I sang along with all your phrases in my head. There’s more tucked away in there than I realize.
    We’ve got a weird neighbor thing, not so much in a good way. Hubbies are good friends, but the wife didn’t care for me speaking my mind about the way she yelled at my kid so we don’t really talk. Like, ever. That sounds like I was all “oh, my precious baby got his feelings hurt” but you’ll just have to trust me — that wasn’t it. Anyway, their kid spends a lot of time gaming at our house; the young one comes by asking to play with the kitty but I don’t like to torture Mia so she doesn’t come in that often. It’s a strange setup.

We both agreed if something is not done, it’s bound to fall on one of our cars one day. And then I come in and read this post of yours.

    The problem with the Beverly Hillbillies theme song for me is that I’m a boy, and when I was a pre-teen my friends and I sang an X-rated version of that we had somehow learned. The boy inside of the now-grown man is probably still lurking in there. And so it goes. – Marty

  16. Random, yes, but it seemed tied together perfectly. I do remember the Beverly Hillbillies song plus several of the others that have been mentioned here. They don’t make TV like that anymore! Our neighbors to the left have moved away and there was quite a commotion going on there for a while as they left the house to their son who was into some possibly illegal activities. He married a similarly unreliable person and long story short, the parents sold the house out from under them. Now it is empty, having been bought by the neighbors across the street who are in the process of cleaning and remodeling. I went inside and it was disgusting! When the couple moved out, they left two of their cats to fend for themselves, one of which is a constant presence by our house. He does not get along well with our cat though so he is not welcome. He does leave us “presents” of mice though.

She’s a nice lady, but a little to the left on the weird chart. And, we have two gigantic dead branches that need to be cut and removed before they take out two fences but we’ve been waiting for months for them to get to us. Service by a tree company is tough to come by up here.

    1. Judy, your neighbor lady in the nightie sounds like a character out of an Agatha Christie mystery. One who Miss Marple will suss out as the intended victim of the crime!

      We have a slow time getting any tree company to come to our house, too. Although where you live they’d be in even more demand. I love me trees, but me not love paying the price to have them maintained in a safe way. 😑
