    So why did they choose to live on a golf course? Well, according to step-mom the elderly material girl, that's where the "good" people live. Bleeeccchhhh....
    Ha, that sounds just like Snottsdale. Love the area, HATE the people.

    Daddy is a depression-era Texas ranch kid...rough edges but smart. Mama polished the edges somewhat, but she died when I was 23. Daddy remarried this woman, and I've had to listen to her blather for over 35 years now. She's a society wannabe and is all about the best, most expensive of everything. I get really bored listening to how much she paid for everything. I tend to tune her out. She is so unlike my mother was...I've always been amazed that Daddy puts up with all of it, but he's VERY old school and does not believe in divorce (even though they have argued and sniped at each other for most of their married life. She spent all of her money and is now working on trying to get more of his. They live in Arizona because the hill country in TX wasn't upscale enough for her tastes...and he has hated it most of the time they've been there. I expect she fits right in, though.

    Like a ninety year old woman. No...she's not a dog, but she was never a "hot bod". I think she was "comfortable" for a lonely widower, and familiar. She and her hubby used to be in a couples bridge club with my parents when her hubby & my mother were still alive. They also sang in the choir together. Of her three boys & his three girls, I'm the youngest. We were all grown & gone. Thank goodness I never had to live with her.

    ^^^THIS^^^ only it's about waking up my wife, not my kids. Both my kids sleep like the dead. When my oldest was about four I ran a fire alarm test in the house. I set it off right outside her room for 3 minutes and she didn't even flinch. No one is going to be able to play music loud enough to wake them up.

    Now my wife is a different story. She gets up during the week at 4:30am for work and is a very light sleeper. And lets just say that she is not a nice person when she has not had enough sleep. If your party at your house goes past midnight and is keeping her awake then I am going to pay a visit. If that doesn't do the trick then the cops are going to keep paying visits until the problem is solved.

    It's like the old Jeff Foxworthy joke: Even in the nursing home, men are STILL saying "I wanna beer & I wanna see something nekkid"...followed swiftly by "Ewwww...not that...NOT THAT!!!"

    Re: How would your neighbors describe you and your family

    We're the crazy people with all the weird hobbies. When we have bee hive pieces and parts staged in front of the garage (NOTE bees are 1.5 miles away, only have empty equipment here in storage) to move out and put to use one neighbor freaks out because she's scared of bees.

    We're also the people that take care of the park. Welcome to a small town where there is no city crew to do such thing.

    We're also the devil-loving heathens because we stopped going to the local church when the crazy minister assumed control.

    We live in an apartment. I suppose we'd be the people with the red dog. Or the people with the Cincinnati Reds doormat.

    Was just watching the news and a car chase ended in Peoria...just south of Vistas golf course and Lakes golf course. I hope it wasn't your pops pulling into his driveway at the same time!

    Maybe you're thought of as a couple of gays.

    Sounds familiar. Does she insist that her last name is pronounced "Bouquet"?

    we only have neighbors on one side of our apartment and I'm pretty sure they've changed every year. So they'd probably say "who?"

    When we bought this house people were stunned about us doing anything ourselves. I was stunned more people didn't do it. It seems no one in Phoenix takes care of their own property. After hearing what the last owner paid to have all of this stuff done, no wonder she couldn't afford the payments on the house.
    Just noticed your "Location" still says Kansas City.
