35. Charming!
When will the Freepers and Dittoheads ever stop being suckered by the wolves in sheep's clothing? We have four families like that in our cul-de-sac and I consider them all hopeless. One's husband was the assistant principal of a Christian school that only accepts "believers" until he was caught by the police in the parking lot of a restaurant "stuff" with a teenage hooker.

They all are very sweet but not especially bright people. They always seem to struggle financially, hustling to start small, vendor-like businesses, have multiple generations living under one roof, and are constantly in trouble with the homeowners association for shoddy lawn work, roaming dogs, and crappy, old vehicles.

Last November one told me that things will really take off in this county with Bush and Cheney firmly in charge and that he likes me but he would never vote for a Democrat because they're not compassionate enough. Another tried to get my neighbor to watch some sort of right wing propaganda film. Still, nice folks, just always a little befuddled like the Krishna types I've seen in airports and malls.

I doubt they'll be able to stay in the neighborhood if interest rates continue to and they can't use their houses as ATMs anymore. Sometimes I wonder where they'll go.
