A neighborly piece of advice?

Five words you do not want to hear from your son while you're out of town whether you're menopausal or not:

Did the neighbors call you?

I've been keeping up with your blog on my feeder, but not been commenting much.

Thought of you friday .. in my PCP's office ..as she Rx'd Pristiq for my Perimenopausal symptoms .. she brought it up when she noticed the hot flash I was having in her presence!!!

(Prestiq and Myasthenia Gravis don't mix, I learned the hard way. I'll be telling her tomorrow)

I can't imagine what I'd do if my son said "did the neighbors call you?" I'd have a heart attack then ask questions!

Oh, no. I remember being asked a few questions like that when my children were in high school and college...

Here's one from today -- 17 year old son. "Mom, you know how you told me you got into an accident once backing out of a parking space?"

Judy....what was the result of that call? You left us dangling here. :)

Fortunately, Dee, the drama dropped off quickly thereafter. Neighbor noted at 4:00 a.m. (what was he doing up then??) that my son and friend in friend's unfamiliar car (what were they doing up and out then??) were entering our darkened house. All's well that end's well, and I'm glad that neighbors take note of neighborly happenings.
