Conversation Over Coffee


  • The Mister: As I was putting the trash out, Mr. Neighbor Man yelled across the yard to me.
  • Me: Yelled what?
  • The Mister: He said, "I see you're feeding the skunks again!"
  • Me:  Feeding the skunks?  What?  What did you say?
  • The Mister:  I didn't say anything!  I just waived and kept walking.
  • Me:  Are you kidding?  Why didn't you ask what he meant by that?
  • The Mister:  Because I didn't care and I didn't want to talk to him!
  • Me:  Oh geesh, I want to know what that was supposed to mean!  I haven't seen any skunks since last fall.  And the last ones I saw were living under his deck!
  • The Mister:  I suppose the only thing he could possibly be referring to is that he has seen a skunk eating spilled seed under our bird feeder.
  • Me:  Well, I haven't seen one...that squirrel is the only thing out there besides the birds.  So do you think he is blaming us for his skunks?
  • The Mister: Probably.  But it's not our fault he has a skunk living under his deck!  We've taken care of all the feral cats in the neighborhood.  He can take care of the skunks.


For anyone who may not know, Mr. Neighbor Man is known
to do irritating things like peek in our window, hang his
underwear on the clothesline right in our view, park his
truck off of his driveway, too close to our house, run his
tractor onto our property, etc, etc.  Not exactly our 
favorite neighbor.  lol....and I admit that we have
become Mr and Mrs Kravitz, watching out the kitchen
window to see what irritating thing his is up to now. haha.

    1. I know! Men! I would have had to have talked to him.
      Our whole village had a skunk problem last year before the winter
      came. Do they hibernate? They must because I haven't seen one since.
      But I can't believe there is much seed on the ground with the juncos
      digging about under the feeder.

    2. If you had skunks...your lawn would be all ripped up...they love grubs!!
      We see evidence of them at the cottage...they can make a real mess...
      And...why are the Juncos still here??? I have them here as well.....hmmmmm...

      Delete
    3. Well, it's cold again here, so I guess the Juncos still feel at home. haha

      instead of giving us heck!

  9. We have one of those too. Does he think you can control the skunks?

    1. I guess he thinks if we didn't have a bird feeder, there wouldn't be any skunks.

  10. Oh my gosh, now this could get really hilarious! First of all, he has the living conditions the skunks like, obviously. Secondly, you can't control the skunks. He sounds like a piece of work. That part about him peeking in your windows kills me. Mama always says, "kill 'em with kindness." Not sure if that would work on someone like him. He sounds like a big old crank. But, you could make him some cookies in the shape of a skunk. HaHa!

    1. LOL!!! Skunk cookies? Should I make them taste wonderful or stinky? hahaha. We are always kind to him, but rarely have contact. Yes, the Peeping Tom was the worst..especially since our eyes met and he scurried away. Craziest thing ever.

  11. It sounds like mr. Neighbor man needs to get a life and an exterminator. Lol
