This persistent traffic next door is actually making me wish someone would just buy the place so that the dogs and horses and I can get used to one family's routine rather than having to work through the activities of a lot of strangers coming and going. It was nice having the place quiet and still for nearly three years, but ever since the price dropped below the home value, my sleepy neighborhood has been jumping. There have actually been loud trucks doing drive by viewings late at night. I don't know what people expect to see in the dark.
The good news about the heat is that it tends to weed out those nosy people who just like to drive around looking at homes for sale so they can dream about them, but not actually buy them. I'll admit that when our kids were little, we spent our weekends going to open houses for homes we could never afford. It was a way to keep the kids busy and for us to learn about different neighborhoods and home designs so that when we were ready to buy, we'd have done our research. The difference between us and some of these other people, though, is that we went to open houses, while these other people just keep doing surveillance on our neighborhood by cruising past multiple times a day, which makes people nervous. What did they miss the first five times that they have to come back again? I don't get it.
Despite all the Looky Loos, Rock and I got out for a nice trail ride. It was hot enough by the time we left that we had the trails to ourselves. The biggest challenge we had was to keep de face outta da bushes...
