There is a certain woman on our street that has made it her job to be the eyes and ears of the neighborhood. Every neighborhood has a person like that I think. I’m sure your neighborhood has one too. Matters are made worse by the fact that her daughter is in the same Brownie (girl scouts) troop as my granddaughter Jas. This morning the kids are at the bus stop as Jas and I load up the chariot to drive her to school. So just as we get to the end of the street the bus comes and we are stuck at the bus stop until the school bus leaves. No big deal. But then this woman walks over to my car. “Did Jas spend the night with you? She should ride the bus if she is spending the night with you. You should call the schools transportation department. Is Jas moving in with you? Oh, watching her before and after school while her mother works? Well where does her mother work? What time does her mother have to be at work? What time does she get off?” I felt like I had been through a police interrogation by the time she let me leave. Whew! The hubster says it’s because her husband was in the military for many years. He said she must have honed her “interrogation” skills on base. I’m sure my daughter, who lives on an Army base in Germany, knows many women exactly like my neighbor. Interestingly enough, the neighbor lived on a Military base in Germany for many years.
