There was a lot of noise coming from a distant corner of the neighbourhood last night. A group of people getting together and partying till the wee small hours. Lots of shouting and chanting and general rowdiness – just a normal, youthful party.
It didn’t bother me too much, but where the noise was coming from is quite a built up area, so I thought the gendarmes might have been called, or at least they would have quietened it down a bit out of respect for their neighbours.
I heard from another neighbour that they were at it till gone 4 a.m. ‘Oh well we were all that young once’ I said to him, before adding ‘They were probably just enjoying deconfinement’ he agreed with me, but rolled his eyes.
I happened to have a stroll past there just now. The music is starting to crank back up.
They were all there, in the garden, a dozen or so of them sat around a table full of bottles, getting warmed up for round two tonight.
Youthful? No. Young at heart? definitely
Not one of them looked under seventy.
I also now know why the neighbours didn’t complain – because they’re all there.
I might nip round later on with a bottle myself…
Oh, that *is* funny!
We have neighbors who would party until the wee-smalls, and it was super annoying. They are truck farmers (vegetables, rather than livestock) so it didn’t make a bit of difference to them what time they went to bed, but some of us have to get up and go to work come dawn.
And then – a sheriff’s deputy bought the house across the street! Come 11 o’clock, silence reigns. Thank you, Jee-sus!

I have fallen out with the neighbours two doors away as they were partying till 4 .a.m as well, however they woke myself and my son up so I was not best pleased. Their response when I said they could take it inside? ‘But it’s better out here’. I got very angry after that and I didn’t have a top on (it was hot) so they got the message and everybody left. Funny thing though – at 4a.m when I am very angry I can speak and understand French perfectly 🙂
I think anger jump=starts your brain. A sort of “all hands on deck” response.
