Are they staying for good?

Early evening last night when I was watering the plants and the lawn, a heavily-tinted white Hyundai van arrived with a Mitsubishi double-cab following. I saw that the double-cab's back portion was full of huge travel luggage. Our former co-worker and neighbor must have finally arrived with his wife. I'm not sure if their children have come along with them. They were in the U.S. for about, more or less, 20 years already and by this time their children should be past 30. With the big number of luggage they were bringing, are they staying for good? This has come to be my suspicion because my co-worker's nephew and niece and her husband were busy the past two weeks with repair work of the house. In fact, I saw that they have replaced the roofing sheets which, by this time, are already 37 years old. We've (8 co-workers) built our houses here in 1979. Whether they're staying for good or not, I will soon find out as they are settled and rested from their long trip and may be dropping by the neighbors' homes in the following days.

You are one sneaky neighbour hahaha! You always seem to notice everybody around you. The huge luggages could contain pasalubong. Every time my mother-in-law would come home she would have these two huge luggages even though she's here for only a month. Almost everything in the luggage are for us.

I am not sneaky, Ms. Toni. It's just that our house is at a strategic point in the village. It's in the curve and I will surely notice everyone passing especially when I'm outside the house watering the plants and garden. Even when I'm inside the house, my small nook/"office" has a window which allows me to see everyone passing. Hmmmm I could possibly quality as the village guard LOL!

I think they did not have time for rest and want to make use of every minute they're here because I was told by a neighbor that they're here for only 2 weeks. In fact, on the early morning after arrival, I already saw our former co-worker riding on a motorbike pass by our house. Since they arrived we did not have the chance to meet them yet.
