On the way home we saw some news vans parked at the local Pizza Hut. Not sure if something else happened or what. This town has had strange things going on since Old Drum was shot and killed.

When I was living in Holland I had some friends that, like most Dutch I met, spoke and understood English rather well. I worked with a guy from North Carolina (actually one town over from where I went to high school) and they not only had no idea what he was saying, they swore he wasn't even speaking English. I have no discernible accent but his was a thick North Cackalacky accent.

We went to Holland the summer of '10 and my dad who never spoke English till he was 6 thought he could still speak it. Long story short, bad idea But since everyone there speaks good English it was no big deal.

German is somewhat close as well. If they speak slow enough I can kinda get the gist of what they're saying but nobody ever speaks slow enough so I just stand and nod

Ya German has a completely different flow and feel to it. Takes much longer to make sense of it.

So after putting up with the MIL over Chriatmas she finally went home............to discover that her house was robbed. Just left there after 5 hrs of watching the cops go through an abandon apartment, arrest 3 hoodlums and have their mom call us honkies. I looked at her and said "bless your heart, I haven't been called a honky since Carter was in office". I thought I was being nice but apparently she didn't think so.

Hauled Nana's crap from her apartment yesterday. Windy as hell so I was getting around 11 mpg towing her crap. Luckily it didn't cost her a dime.

Nana lives about 90 miles away and her storage place is owned by her brother and is another 60 miles. I argued that it would be cheaper to rent one in the town she lives in but it was already past noon on Saturday so we couldn't find a storage place with the office still open. I was just ready to mover her **** and be done with it. When we got to the apartment someone had put a note on the door.

Now the mother of the hoodlums that robbed her had spent hours threatening us all the night before. The cops finally took her in but her room mate, boy friend, ex-con bailed her right out along with the kids. Seems they wanted us to know that they were still around. As we started loading stuff up the crew rolled in. Had to put someone on guard duty with the trailer.

Soon cars were coming and going at the neighbors place, each getting loaded with things in bags and covered in sheets or blankets. Since the cops said they couldn't get a warrant to search their apartment I'm guessing they were moving the stolen stuff from all over the surrounding neighborhoods out. The only stolen things the cops found were in the abandon side of their duplex. The kids were taken in for trespassing in the abandon unit but will probably never be charged with the theft.

The gangstas had their own little group stay outside playing some of the most vile rap songs they could find and yelling crap like "rednecks" "white trailer trash" and yes..."honkies" at us the whole time.

The side of the duplex in the picture is the abandon one.

After a while a truck pulled up and a 6'4" coverall clad gentleman stepped out to great us. He owned one of the duplexes that was robbed (the one in the background of the above picture) and his daughter lived in one side. He looked like the one guy at the bar that you knew to stay the hell away from if a fight started 'cause he has no qualms about going to jail. This was the second time his daughters place was broken into but the first time that he knew who did it. I envision some interesting things happening in the near future.

What all didn't get packed up and moved was put in the garage but as I told the M-I-L, they don't want to steal any more of your ****, they will just bust in and destroy the place.

I will say that living with the Inlaws is much worse than I thought.
I have little privacy. I have become their private taxi cab. ( even though they can both drive) My FIL is a real work. He thinks his three years in the Navy way back in the 60's allows him to be a Vet . I guess in his own mind. The whole mental thought pattern just burns my ***. I was in the USAF and don't run around yelling and screaming about my war stories. He thinks that we owe him a good life. Yet this from
the ***** that says" I am a bad father and a bad husband."

I guess if I was so bad his daughter and I would not be married still,. I mean give it a break, we have been together for 14 years and married 8 of them.

I am tired of hearing the same ole friggin stories of when he was young and had good health. Well guess what you idiot? If you would get off you *** and take care of yourself and do as the doctors tell you to do maybe you would not be so miserable.

Then John thinks he can yell at me because his Direct TV box is not working! Well I guess it would work if you helped pay the ***kin bill.(He was to lazy to get out of his chair to secure the HDMI cord) God knows he sits on his *** in the chair most of the day watching the tv, and god forbid anyone to interfere with him!

My Mother in law is just a floating speck of dust in the air. Half the time she has no clue of what the hell goes on.. She got all up in my face the other day because someone had sent her a Scam email. Okay well it happens to all of us. She swore that I had used her email addresses to order something. I was like good lord your senile.

I had to explain to her how the scams worked and to direct her to not open the links because I be dammed if I am spending hours to fix her little laptop. I did have to hear about it for the last three days ..She is still bitchin..

Good thing I have a man-cave away from the house. Which according to her I spend too much time in when they decide to come up out of their cave, my basement. I guess I missed the Wed meeting so had to vent a bit.

Welcome and we are open 24/7 so our afflicted brothers and sisters can vent about the craziness that we married into.

I can't complain about mine too much. They help us out when we need it. Obviously there are times when it sucks. We lived in her parents basement for a while when we house shopping. It wasn't that bad. At that time her youngest brother was the biggest pain. We sold our house and lived in her sisters basement for a few months while our new house was being finished. That was fun with three kids that won't behave running around above you.
Now it's her parents house, her sisters house, her brothers house and ours spread out on 100 acres with a shared driveway. Good thing we all get along 98% of the time
