A few recent doin's a-transpirin'

In the last couple days, a few things of potential curiosity have occured across the street.

• a couple days ago, a woman wearing what appeared to be a mumu came up Double Wide's walk, waving a piece of paper, and yelling at him to come to the (open) door. The Lab was barking and jumping around her. She didn't seem pleased.
• some new decorations for the front lawn! Joining the big ugly brown pillow mat on the front step shared by Double Wide and the Lab, there is now what appears to be a stereo ot tv stand, which is being used as a chair. A couple nights ago, there was also a lamp on the front step. Plugged in. Turned on. Outside. And there's a director's chair covered in the Canadian flag sitting in the weed bed. I'm telling ya, we're reaching a critical mass where the only result is an old couch on the lawn and beer cans lined up in the window.
• yesterday, Double Wide walked across the street to speak to someone—possibly the new owner of a house on the corner—and returned with a plastic bag. He also proceeded to tie up the Lab at that point. My guess: the Lab went across the street and took a dump on someone's lawn, and Double Wide was called on it. Ah, poor deluded new neighbour, thinking that this will result in Double Wide becoming more responsible.
• a cop car slowly went by Maison de Double Wide yesterday, checking things out. A couple summers ago, this used to be a regular occurence. A return engagement?

At what point does the double wide clue in and realize that he is totally irresponsible and a general nucance to the entire neighbourhood? I bet he makes money on the side making the Kitty! and the lab do dirty things to each other. Just a thought.
