3173 Annoyance, also so easy.

“Life in itself is neither good nor evil, it is the place of good and evil,
according to what you make it.”
-- Michel de Montaigne --


Just as it takes little to make me feel satisfied, it seems it takes little to annoy me.

The lady in the next house to the north is very nice. I'd say she's maybe 10 years younger than I. I haven't met the husband yet, but that's ok. Anyway, they have parties, and they decorate extravagantly for every holiday.

Since closing on the house in mid-October, I have been startled several times by the black-robed ghouls hanging in the trees, moving in the breeze, next to my driveway. This week, the ghouls were been replaced by this:

The view from my front porch -

The view from Daughter's porch across the street (that's Daughter's fence in the foreground) -

Several of those things move. And twinkle.

That is just over the top. They must be stopped. Do you have a BB gun?

At first glance I thought the house was on fire.

This is the excess I'm talking about in my blog post of the other day. There's nothing anyone can do about people who feel the need, and the RIGHT to waste resources and buy all sorts of unnecessary crap that's most likely made with cheap labor in an un or under-developed country.

These are the people who will not survive the apocalypse, because they are too dependent on their modern conveniences.
