    The neighbor kids play basketball in our driveway and they were shooting from the grass which wore away some of it and tracked mud (!!!!!!!) onto our driveway.  After obsessing about it for a couple of weeks he finally asked them (nicely) to shoot from the driveway.  Which they have.  : )

      mud in the driveway?
      oh noez!
      and he can't water it down.
      because well.
      that is against his religion.
      you know.
      he is no good.
      does he not know he should not even have a lawn?
      yesh.
      it's called "natural landscaping".
      you are not supposed to have grass.
      only things that grow without water and chemicals and maintenance in your part of the world.
      please remind him of this asap.
      thank you.

        if he thought he could get away w/ it.  he already replaced our basketball hoop w/ a metal one (!!!!) b/c "it will last longer" and it was only like a buck 50 or something.  then he proceeded to take a poll of our neighbors who all raved about it (to his face).  i let it stand.  i figured, why not give him this small victory if it makes him happy.  after I stopped cringing. ; )

          oh man.
          i wished i lived next door to you guys.
          i don't know who would make me laugh more.
          him. or youz.
          I  now have this vision of him in my head of Ed Begley.
          If you've never seen his show, you won't know what I 'm talking about.
          But he is so YOUR husband.
          I almost think they really are the same person.

          heeeeee.
          he took a poll??
          and they raved about his cheap ass metal thing to make him feel better?
          yup.
          still laughing.

          then he proceeded to take a poll of our neighbors who all raved about it (to his face).

            Live next door that is.  I'm considering going door-to-door as it is and administering my own poll to these neighbors of mine.  I've already ruled out anyone on my street for possible friendship opportunities.  I'm in the market for someone that I can walk to their house, consume wine/beer on back porch, let my kid run amok and walk back home.  I have many ideas for multiple choice/yes or no questions in my head that could easily help me weed out non-matches.  You would def. be a match.  You make me lolz, too.  : )
