This bunch is reason # 74857 why I am SO glad that I sold my house out in the country and moved to town! They were our closest neighbors, right down the road from us. They fit every stereotype there ever was ... think about the Bumpus family from the "Christmas Story" movie, the ones with all the "smelly hound dogs"! If you listen closely, you can almost her the banjo music ... No offense to southerners - I consider myself to be one. These folks are in a class by themselves and certainly not typical around here. There's the mother and father - she's the nosiest person on the face of the earth, he weighs about 80 pounds and has been on his death bed for over twenty years but still alive and kicking! He only LOOKS dead! Then there were three sons - the oldest was married to a really goofy woman (who was very in to drugs). They had several children ... then he died. Goofy daughter in law then married the second-oldest son, had several more children by him (and a few more who curiously look just like the youngest son!) then SHE died! By this time the older granddaughters all started having babies too and by now, probably even they can't keep it all straight! So ... Wednesday our little weekly county newspaper came out and I see that the second-oldest granddaughter just made front page news! She's charged with child abuse/neglect and in the county jail under $25,000 bond! She gave birth to (yet another) baby in a birthing center in the next county. She indicated to the staff there that the baby was going up for adoption but refused adoption counseling and left with the 5 pound baby girl. The birthing center staff alerted CPS. They discovered that she had simply handed her baby off to a friend of hers and went home! CPS and a deputy sheriff visited the home of this "friend" who miserably failed an onsite drug test. The baby was taken in to State custody while CPS looked for a reliable family member who was qualified to take the baby - good luck on that one folks! Finding no one in this huge family who was deemed responsible enough to care for a newborn, she is now in a foster home, probably the best thing that could have happened to her. But WTH is wrong with people! Her excuse was that she couldn't afford this baby! Tennessee has the "Safe Haven" law where an unwanted newborn can be left at a hospital, police station, etc., no questions asked. But instead she hands off a fragile 5-pound newborn to a drug-addicted friend and then goes home! And, she's now sitting in the county jail under a $25,000 bond! I can't say I'm really surprised but this was a little much, even for these people!
