Our log cabin is our vacation home (a.k.a. 2nd home) in northern Michigan. For those of you not familiar with Michigan terms, if you are NOT from northern Michigan and you VISIT northern Michigan - then you are a Fudgie (cuz tourists like to buy fudge on Mackinac Island) or a trunk slammer (cuz when you drive up to the cabin after work on Friday, all the locals can hear you slamming your trunk after you've pulled up into your driveway.)
Anyways I'm a very social person (really!) and I've been trying to get to know my neighbors nearby. Most of them are permanent residents on the lake so I have no "fudgies" to align myself with - ha,ha! I would love to hear some of your NEIGHBOR STORIES
! And how you won some of them over (or maybe not!)
Here's the recap of my encounters:
*The older gentlmen who scowled at my construction crew through the whole process now lets his dog run rampant on our property. Once in a while I get a wave. (Only a wave for letting your dog poop on my grass??)
*The lady down the way decided to check out my cabin with one of her friends by flashing their truck lights into my windows at Midnight! I thought someone was scoping our place and called the cops! She later came down and apologized and now seems embarassed to talk to me.
*Mrs VIP across the lake has been making inquiries around town about us (I know this because the clerks at the local IGA store told me this.) I did call Mrs. VIP to invite her over - but so far no acceptance of my invitation....I don't know what she's heard...ha,ha!
*I have a gentleman across the street that has 2 goats and has told me to "kick in" his door if I need anything. Now that's a neighbor!!
Anyways, fudgie or not - I'm going to win these people over! And maybe I'll try slamming my trunk a little quieter....
