Suspicious Activity at the Beach House

I got a call from Christine today, who had received a call from our neighbors in Seaside. They'd seen some suspicious activity going on at our house and wanted to let us know!

I phoned and spoke to John and he told me the details. A woman (drunk? crazy?) was there around 5:30 a.m. and appeared to be trying to get in. John watched and she pretended to leave. He pretended not to watch, and she came back. Eventually he phoned the police who came and actually took her away.

Anyway, I phoned Ralph and he offered to go by and check. He called back and said everything was fine, which was good news!

But the really good news??? John and his family are ALWAYS looking out for the house for us! That's pretty amazing.

But Marilyn and I discussed it and we're equally lucky to have wonderful neighbors here in Portland who are always looking out for our house, too!

Bottom line? We're blessed with GOOD NEIGHBORS for both houses!!! You really can't beat that.

Just getting ready to head to Walmart for the first time in AGES. We really need to pick up some things.

Spent a LOT of today just SLEEPING. Or resting. And sleeping again. I think it's exactly what I needed, frankly. I just want to get over this damn bug.

But tomorrow we're going for manicures and pedicures. And we need to do some laundry before heading to the beach house!

Ralph mentioned that they've been talking 80' plus weather down at Seaside for this week -- and he agrees that's TOO HOT. Sure hope it's NOT that hot down there!

Of course, we're having another heat wave here in Portland and expecting 100' weather! Yikes!

Well, off to shop!!!
