Dang. It's that You-caught-my-eye-and-I-have-to-avert-my-glance-so-it-looks-like-I'm-not-peering   thingy for the both of you, it seems. Hoping for you that the barrier grows like wildfire.

If someone is giving away a large, bulky item you should take it away as soon as possible.  She made no arrangements for 3 months.  If she'd hired movers or had concrete plans that you knew about, then it might be rude.  Given the circumstances, I think you are fine.

It will be a sore subject though, so I'd avoid talk of it in front of her again.

Since we're talking about a couple who are paying for their own wedding, love the fiancÚ typo (finance).  :) :)

:) It's less a typo and more, "I don't have the symbol for the acute accent on this tablet.

When I was leaving my office today, I had a Koffing, Eggxecute, Magikarp and other common monsters spawn. I caught the Koffing and the Magikarp. I found 3+ Slowpokes and 3 Oddish today.

I used a lucky egg and evolved a Dratini, a Eevee into a Vaporeon, various other pokemon and went up 11000 XP.

Bubba, Im sorry that you had a hairball. Im glad that you got it up though. What I dont understand is why you chose my area rug instead of the hardwood or the linoleum.

Love, hork disposer

It's a matter of traction.  It is quite the violent procedure to hork up a hairball.  They use their claws to dig in for traction, which is much easier on carpet.  :)

That makes perfect sense! Thank you!

A coworker who I had many mutual friends with (lots of overlap between my social and work life) passed away recently, at 43.  He had stopped managing his diabetes.

Given the stories in this thread, it might be that the conversation that Cousin - not BeagleMommy - needs to have is "What kind of funeral do you want?"  It is faintly possible that the topic might scare her into managing her condition better.

Guest-Martyrs.  They're frustrating.

Oh, that's a really good one.

Are you able to plant a hedge or trees to block the view from the townhome into your backyard (and from your backyard into the townhome)? That is what I would do. I am all for being friendly, but I don't want to not be able to do what I want in my own space for fear of a neighbor watching me (again, not saying the OP was "watching" the neighbor, but still) or (in my opinion) worse yet trying to make conversation with me.

Given the update, it seem unlikely that the OP and the neighbor will both be outside at the same time so I would just be friendly when and if the time comes. And I would plant a hedge or other block between my backyard and the townhome.

We have trees that normally block the view but because of power lines they were trimmed back which is really why she and I had such an unobstructed view. The townhome development has planted other vegetation to create a uniform barrier but it will be a year or more until it really creates a barrier. And even once it's there, she could feasibly peer through it.

As I'm thinking about this, I've realized it's more my issue than than the new neighbor. I dislike the idea of a complete stranger having such access to viewing my yard. But I'm ok with a known entity.
