Fuzzy Neighbor Update #3: No Love From Next Door

I’ve been busy hosting company these last few weeks and I’ve had very little development on the Fuzzy Neighbor front. And that is OK. I have all summer to make myself seen and heard. There’s only been 1 Fuzzy Neighbor happening, and it’s not good. In fact, I feel a strong sense of rejection. 

Our very next door neighbors have erected a “Jacobs Keep Out” rope. 

Jacobs Keep Out Rope


I’ll be honest with you, I was scared to take these shots. I’ve only seen rare glimpses of these neighbors. I’m not sure what they’re about, but I live in a very bustling, busy, kid-friendly neighborhood. My husband and I struggled with the erection of the rope, and simultaneously tried to figure out what we had done to cause it. We can think of a few things: 

1. Our children sometimes walk a path beside their yard to get to another neighbor’s house. 

2. My husband always cuts one mower’s length into their yard as a courtesy to us and them. Their yard is normally an overgrown mess. 

3. We recently increased the traffic in our backyard. It’s our first summer in this home. We added: 

A black and gold seating and fire pit area

And a sand and water play table

As you can see, my baby is now paranoid and constantly looking over his shoulder. But, I’ll tell you what I bet the real reason is, and please know that I risked life and limb to bring you this shot.

These neighbors are just plain weird.
