I came outside today to find Johnny and some other kids throwing rocks at our next door neighbor’s house. Our next door neighbor (Craig) decided to stay in Texas after his Katrina evacuation. The weeds in his yard are now eight feet tall. I have some issues with Craig, obviously, but I didn’t think Johnny should throw rocks at the house. I exhorted him to stop, and we had a little discussion about Craig, who he is and what’s up with his house. Johnny expressed a desire to blow Craig’s house up. I said that wouldn’t be a good idea because our house would probably catch on fire. I told him not to throw rocks at the house again, got in the car and drove off. In the mirror I could see that the rock-throwing continued.
While I was at the hardware store, apparently, the cops rolled up on the scene. They told Johnny to quit and go home. (Xy reported what happened when I got back.) There’s broken glass all over Craig’s porch.
