The Continuing Saga of the Cat Hater

We discovered we have aphids on the rose bush beside our common fence with the cat hating hypocrite. I tried to draw her out this evening by spraying the bugy bush with a mixture of dish soap, cooking oil and water. I was sure she would come bustling out and demand to know what I was doing and was it harmful to her dogs or plants at which point I would tell her to mind her own business and not talk to me. In my mind I was sure she would go back in her house positive that I was spraying harmful chemicals all over her back yard but no, she foiled me. She sent her husband out to see what I was doing but he foiled her by not even looking at me as he passed by, walked out of sight for a few seconds, turned around and walked back into the house. I console myself with the thought that she now knows how useless he is at civilian reconnaissance. Funny thing is, they are both retired from the military. From the way she talks to her husband, I expect she was a drill sargent.

When you have a neighbor with such poor impulse control, it is best not to tempt her into aberrant behavior. You could, however, keep a record of her harassment as a backstop should you ever need a legal defense.

Oh my word, I'm enjoying this a little too thoroughly.

This woman must be incredibly miserable inside. Don't let her poison get inside of you!

Speaking of witches, it would be tempting to start doing weird things in my backyard if I knew a horrible neighbor was surveilling me. You could hold meetings where everyone is wearing wizard robes and chanting. Or just play records of whalesong or frogs croaking, every day.

The husband probably has lots of experience with the witch.
