Or maybe it's just me.... but some people are just plain weird!

Yesterday mom and I drove over to visit with one of my brothers. Had a nice visit. Lovely weather here and the countryside is simply gorgeous. I'm digressing so anywho, on the way home we go through the small town I grew up in. I decided to take a small detour up a hill to the house we used to live in. Drove down past it, commented on how pretty it looked blah blah blah..... saw several deer cross the road and snapped a few pics of them. Turned around headed back up the road and noticed the owners where standing in the yard. I pull up to the fence/gate thing and waved at them. They walk up to the gate, I get out and say my hello's and tell them we lived there 40 years ago, built that barn, dug that well and used to swing in a tire from that giant oak tree. Harmless right?

Well....when we moved from that place my oldest brother bought the place from my dad. So the people who've lived there 20 + years asked if my brother still lived out the highway, I said yes. Harmless right? So.... mom is out chatting away about the nonsensical stuff she always chats about and I explained several times that she had Alzheimer's and was just remembering things the way she remembers. Harmless right?

The people where nice, I said thank you for allowing us to take a trip down memory lane, shook both their hands and again said how lovely the place looked. Get home, send my brother a text saying they remembered him and the hound dogs he had. Brothers says.... hmmmm, long time ago. Harmless right?

30 minutes later I get another text from my brother saying those people came by his house and asked that we NEVER stop by their house again Wtf? Really?? Seriously? It was 40 years ago.... mom and I were just taking in the scenery and laughing at all the antics that went on wayyyy back then.

This kind of stuff makes me just not want to talk to people if not absolutely necessary.

Well, those two "nuts" talked our nutty a**es off too? Also introduced ourselves...

Animals are not annoying....people are nuts and annoying (most, not all) and machines.... they inevitably rust, run out of gas or technology has left it in the dust.

Give me a dog, a horse, a fishing pole and a bologna sandwich on a beautiful summer day.

HAA!! Loved the side - eye comment blannie!! I'm getting too many wrinkles from so many side eyes... I think perhaps my eyes have permanently stuck that way.

Ok.... so upon further thought about this bizzarro behavior I must say that a meth lab in the old barn may not be far off base. Seriously.... the biggest portion of the front area is immaculately landscaped and the place is tighter than fort knox...big gate, electric fence but no horses or livestock..... the barn my dad built is almost buried in over growth not far from the house though.... hmmmmm

Ha... I need to not stop by again because they are worried about my intentions. To me, that is just laughable?.... what is a senile old lady and a crazed care giver gonna do? My worst crime would be to leave mom on the doorstep with a note and an ice cream bar. JUST KIDDING! ;)

like i was ever gonna stop again.... it just presented itself at that moment

A&A great minds think alike - I immediately thought they're running a meth lab on their property, LOL!! There are so many of them out in the country these days.

And yes, people are WEIRD. Even some in my own family - side eye to my brother. :)

She is trippin balls right now. Personally, I think it has a lot to do with the Seroquel. Yesterday was a nightmare. From 2:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. I was consoling her, she was so scared.

Maybe I've become a bit more tolerant of people not in their right mind. Certainly would never ever dream of complaining like they did. If mom wants to go out and enjoy herself.... pppffftttt on the buzzkills

I would never ask to go inside :0 I thought they were nice... obviously a few of us in that particular group is whacko. I'm voting THEM! Hmmm.... I did mention the barn a few times and it IS very overgrown almost to the point you can't see it.

AHA!

If it wasn't so bizarre it would be funny. But... I've got bigger fish to fry
