    i got neighbors....o do i have them....when the house near us came up for sale...i begged my man to buy it...what did he say...no, didnt need two homes blah blah blah...well he is reminded of that....when the coondogs start howling at 2 am..

    so last time i go over to neighbors at like 6 am...after listening to his dogs all night...turns out i pick the morning after his mother has died to go and bitch.. (i didnt know) but what does that have to do with his dogs barking all damned night?

    so i am over there bitching about his dogs when he says my cats are pissing on his atvs.
    well my cats are neutered and dont have that smell like a male cat..also said my cats were getting the garbage etc...of course it turns out it is not my cats but one from up the street.

    they also throw trash in the creek...nice real nice...

    they are a bunch of foul ass coon hunting red necks....

    so tell me about your least favorite neigbhor.....

    As I started the transition from a marginal neighborhood in '91 into something more middle class I used to have a continuous stream of neighbors from hell.

    Bikers, Oxicotin-cowboys, section 8 gypsies tramps and their neglected children, back yard mechanics who thought the ground was their toxic waste dump, pit bull owers who like allowed their dogs to terrorize the cats and the kids .. you know...good down-home white trash.

    But the steady rising prices of houses in this town brought more stable (and more folks from away, too..they have money, you see?) people in, so now my neighbors are pretty stable people.

    I now find that I am the most senior continuous resident in my neighhood.

    Given that from '69 to 91 I must have lived in fifty different places, finding that I am now the most senior resident in this neighborhood is rather shocking.

    A neighbor with a dog or dogs that bark are probably my number one bitch. I always wonder why "THEY" can't hear them. But I have zero tolerance for it. I call the cops. The cops get called enough times and they start getting a fifty dollar ticket for every time the cop gets called on their dogs barking. Hit 'em in the wallet. That usually has a profound effect. Luckily now I have great neighbors, and NO DOGS!

    I like the one on the right side of me and hate the ones on the left.

    The ones on the left are boys and they are loud. They have turned their music down after I addressed that issue but they come in at 4:00 am drunk and giggling. I understand they are young and they just want to have fun but sometimes they're annoying.

    The one on my right is an older man and very nice and quiet. :)

    Old people make excellent neighbors...they bake you cookies, fix your car, give you food from their garden...I miss the couple that used to live next to me. I'm okay will all of my neighbors with the exception of the pit bull next door.

    I love my neighbors..... of course we have alot of space between us....

    the guy next to us has 10 acreas and the guy behind us has 6 acreas so they are far enough away to be good neighbors.

    When i first moved here, i had a little adjusting to do, hearing my next door neighbor and his 2 sons out in their field and woods practicing shooting their guns...target practice....and i wondered if it was legal or not to shoot or practice shooting on their own property....but apparently it is ok?

    Anyway, then i saw a pack of coyotes in the meadow across the way....and so did my neighbor, he drove to our house and asked if we saw them too....then proceeded to say if they come near our house let him know and "he would take care of them"! :eek:

    At that point i got his phone number on speed dial and i feel as if i got my own armed security guard now....since matt and I still haven't gotten a gun yet! I would dial him before 911 if i were being robbed or for anything like that.....!!! And honestly, i am extremely greatful now that he has a houseful of guns!!! And NEVER in ALL MY YEARS of life, would I have thought i would feel this way...never!!!

    Things are so different when you are living among the wild, in rural areas.

    My neighbor also has all kinds of toys, like snow mobiles, 3 wheelers, tractor, and snow plow.....and he comes and clears the snow on our driveway and our private road without charge, in any major snow fall which is a huge plus!!!

    And if we ever got in to a really bad storm, he has the snow mobiles to get around, if necessary....so, YES, I love my neighbor!!!

    care i live in the country too...but damn those barking coonhounds...i dont mind the musket loading practicing....which is a huge boom...every few minutes...they are not that close...i couldnt stand living right on top of people...

    my neighbor is not a cat person and apparently he is getting some real bad stuff back from his previous treatment of cats....he went to one guys house and left his window open to his truck..the guys cat pisssed all over the cab.....as long as he leaves my cats alone we will be fine....

    since the big blow up...we have talked...he knows which cats are mine and admitted it was not them...
    he is not longer trying to "live trap" my cats.. which is a damn good thing...cause i told him i would rain down hell on him if anything happens to either of my cats

    he knows i have never called the police or anything like that..and for that he is very thankful

    He is very nice. He chats a little when I see him but other than that, he likes his privacy. He hasn't made me any cookies yet..

    I asked the landlady to get another older person next door before the boys moved in but one of them is her grandson. When I called her about the music, she said she had warned them before they moved in to be quiet. 2 minutes after I hung up the phone with her, the music was turned off.

    They are nice boys, I guess I don't hate them. I would like it if they moved though.

    Call Cesar Milan about the Pitt, that guy is amazing.

    I have a cat as well, and worried that she might snoop on over to our neighbor's property and get killed somehow by one of them shooting but i no longer fear that....one he is a cat person, not a dog person and 2 my cat hasn't left the immediate area of our house since she got here....she was a city cat before, so all of this "in the wild" stuff scares her and if they are practicing shooting, she is at the back door lickidy split, to go back inside....

    my neighbor that backs up to us, (he has his own private road to his house and doesn't share ours so i hardly ever see him), but he has a dog that he leaves chained outside in the summer and sometimes he goes through some howling fits in the day when his owner leaves for work...and it is slightly annoying....more pitiful than anything, i actually feel sorry for the poor thing....i can't see him because we have alot of woods in between but honestly, his crying when his owner first leaves has tempted me to go on over there and pet the poor thing to calm him down... :(

    But, the dog doesn't bark at night!!! Thank God!!! If he did, it would drive me bonkers!!!

    Care
