then I had better report the good.
A little while ago there was a knock on my door. It was my neighbor. The one of the barking dog and smoke alarm fame. That one.
He said he was truly sorry for the trouble he had caused. He hoped I would accept his apology and his assurance that there would not be a repeat performance.
I accepted his apology. All I want is for him to take responsibility for his actions and to stop doing dumb stuff that threatens me and mine. And aside from the smoke alarm incidents, he is a quiet neighbor who doesn't bother anyone.
I do not know what brought about this change in attitude. And it really doesn't matter. I will give him the benefit of the doubt. After all, he isn't the only one living here who has slipped into stupid at one time or another.
And I would hate to see Cooper have to move. I love that dog. :)
