My wife was commenting about the neighbors on either side of us. In both cases, neighbors are always traveling and never home. Also means we pretty much have the street to ourselves.
Wife (with mischievous smile): “You know, we have the BEST neighbors!”
Me: “Huh. Or maybe, they have the WORST.”
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”
