    Wow, I thought I had just a few good friends, but that takes the cake!

    I have 5-7 lifelong friends.

    I'm the same way.
    Have a good Buddy I've known for 30 years and I'm good with that.
    He's as honest as the day is long and I'd trust him no matter the situation.
    If I croak before he does he gets all my tools,tens of thousands,my Polaris General and trailer,and all my firearms.

    There is a Lebanese family I met through my wife 20 some years ago, I liked them. They're in California. Great people, very warm and welcoming... I kind of miss sharing the hookah with them at Christmas... They were a fun bunch...

    Yeah, me and my buddy don't worry about leaving the wallet out around each other. If the women come around, that's a different story.
    :rolleyes:

    I'll never forget the time he held that bully's head down in a foot high red ant hill with his thumbs in his eyes. I had already beaten his little brother's ass.

    All this because they tried to bully 2 little blonde boys out of a fishing raft that I made and said they could use.

    We damn sure whipped their ass, though! :auiqs.jpg:

    Hoo wee! :auiqs.jpg:

    You can’t control smells or neighbors. I had a neighbor who smoked outside and could smell it often. I ever said a word. I barbecue often and I can’t control the smell and where it goes. She is being unreasonable in her request. The woman had her appeal denied and she seems real sensitive. Now, the neighbors are having a huge barbecue with 3000 attending. To me that is wrong. That is just mean spirited.

    Tried to understand this post but I think he has been hitting the bong to much. It just did not click or make sense.

    Having it outside is much more reasonable. The wind can take the smell away.

    I understand her, the smell of beef or pork cooking makes me very violently sick. I have no problem with it being outside. In fact I ask people to cook those meats outside.

    I'm not that woman, maybe even outside is bad for her. I sympathize with her.

    I agree what those people did was very mean and unnecessary.

    If I was that woman I would sell my home and move. It's so not worth all the hassle.

    I agree, it seems to me that maybe both sides are being unreasonable. The neighbors could agree to cook outdoors between certain times and they maybe smoke on the other side of their yard where smoke might be less likely to travel to her. She could have agreed to stay inside at certain times. My neighbor smokes outside and I catch the smell, I go inside for a few minutes then return. I never mention it to him because it is a small price to pay for a good neighbor.
