Hmmm...my neighbors...well next door, another middle-class family of 4. My son plays basketball & football with their son on the elementary school teams. They're great neighbors. <br><br>Across the street a 65 yr old wheelchair-bound woman with her 85 yr old mom and her bipolar, schizophrenic, daughter that resembles a zombie from Return of the Living Dead. In the summer when it's really hot she stands on the porch 24/7 , chain smokes and screams "Get outta me you mother bleeping a-hole!" (to imaginary demons that are sexually assaulting her) until we or other neighbors call the police and they just tell her to stop. They are super-creepy! This neighborhood is about 40 years old and they moved into it around '63. I could write a book about them.<br><br>My other next door neighbor is a sweet little old lady that always makes us home-made fudge every Christmas. She works in the yard a lot. <br><br>Behind us is another of my sons friends. They're in the same 3rd grade class. The dad has a mohawk and lots of tattoos, works for the city. He's a rabid soccer buff and a good neighbor too.<br><br>We have several other friends that live in the hood. All of our kids are so close it kinda got us close too.<br><br>So outside of the unfortunate situation across the street it's a pretty good neighborhood. That situation is improving. The mentally ill daughter is spending more time at her dad's which at least keeps her off the front porch screaming obsenities 24/7 in the summer. When she's on her "medicine" she's much better. Why she goes off of it...I dunno.<br><br>I'm currently looking for a bigger house somewhere within the current neighborhood. I want the kids to remain in the same schools.<br><br>
