Neighbours from Hell
« on: April 08, 2007, 06:51:48 AM »
You know me, Im prety placid, Im a lover not a fighter! Casablanca err Cassanova eat ya heart out!

So yesterday I had a BBQ.

This afternoon I noticed it had started to smoulder and while I was putting it out, this Ahole from next door, the one that keeps mowing my nature strip starts yelling over the fence.

"its illegal to burn rubbish, Im gunna call the fire brigade" etc etc.

I yelled back tactfully and clearly I thought" Its the remains from a BBQ yesterday, I am putting it out".

God strike me, its the first communication I have had with the cretin. I told him to call the firebrigade, hes shouting put it out, Im shouting if you stop interrrupting me itll get dome sooner. Then he yells out "Ill burn you"!!! Can you believe it? I was amazed I said what??? and there was silence. So I continued spreading the ashes and yelled out "Its BBQ season, get used to it, every weekend from now on is a BBQ".

Silence.

I should have called the coppers.

(I swear Ill cook sausages for breakfast lunch and dinner on the BBQ from now on!)

I put up with the idiot tuning its motorbikes all hours, never said boo, just put in the earplugs and tolerate it.

Oh well, revenge is a dish best eaten cold they say. But I should have called the coppers after he yelled out he would burn me. I might after this long weekend is over.

Anyways, I hope that has put an end to his mowing my nature strip. :-D

Now can you believe that actually happened?

Guess what? Tomorrow Im having another BBQ! :evil:

i have one like that too.  at least out here we are separated by some land, but this one is a PIA.  he lets his dogs run loose on my property.  they are cattle dogs and rottwilers.  they run in a pack.  first time i went to talk to him about it, he ran me off his property.  second time i just went to give him fair warning that i'd shoot the dogs.  he has over 300 dollars worth of fines against him, and i still have not gotten a clear shot.

good thing is that when i started carrying the .45 on me, he started locking up the dogs  :evil: 

barbecue on, mick!  make some smoky pork ribs :-)

Well then he would be burning trash.   ;)

i tried to carry the shotgun with me, but couldn't carry it and get anything done.  i have a nice little .45 that i can stick in my back pocket and hook my shirt over so that he can have a clear view of it :-)

Neighbours.  Glad I don't contend with them anymore.  Many years ago (many), I lived in a subdivision for a time and there was this old dude that lived across the street. He would sit out on his veranda at night with no lights on.  I was a stargazer and I could see his shadow and a burning cigarette, I know he was a chain smoker because I could always see the burning stuf. Man, he gave me the willies.  One of the reasons I moved out.  Have a beautiful day, lots of good health.  Cindi

Im thinking of contacting three groups of people to see if they wanna come over for a free BBQ and raise a little hell.

A. The Hells Angels

B. The Banditos

C. The Outlaws.

Id love to see a dozen of those bikes parked in the front yard, with plenty of BBQ smoke drifting about the place!

PS Today we have "controlled burn off" smoke covering the entire city. I feel like knocking on the door and asking if hes complained to the Government!

PPS I have the greek radio station playing in the garage, aimed guess where. Gotta love that greek pop musica!

PPS Im thinkin of boiling up some octopus next weekend if the wind is right!

PPPS Farmers pretty much have a right to blast any stray dog thats on their property over here.

jerrymac, isn't your law like the one in florida? it's a great law!!
 we have had great latitude in our gun use here, but now that so many are spreading out from the city, it is changing.  one town now has a huge fine if you are carrying a FAKE gun that looks real, in public .  i have been ok out here, but i noticed that some of the properties have been subdivided and built on.  more people, more traffic, more dogs running loose.  i used to go days and never see anyone.  not anymore.

I've thought for a while now to start a member recognition award - sort of our version of the Oscars. KathyP would surely get our Outspoken Conservative Award winner and Understudy our Reprint Article Guru!

The idea to recognizing our member for achievements in different categories almost is self evident thing - many members here specialise in a particular type of post, others are extremely helpful in sharing their knowledge and then those who are greeter to new members. I'm sure there are dozens of categories, but the point is we have a great blend of all kinds of people, together we have an eclectic brew which makes this group so special :)

Kathy, ooooh you make me wanna laugh!!! oooooh you make me wanna shout!!!  I like the sprite in you.  That was very nice, and yep, I do hope that my posts bring a little bit of happiness and warmth when people read them.  My intention is to make interesting posts and if it makes people feel good, that is the best thing in the world that I could ever accomplish.  Lovin' life, livin' life.  I can't wait to get outside today, the sun is gonna shine.  We had rains last night like nothing on this earth, but there is blue sky in the southwest and I know that brings on the sun!!!  Besides, I have to mow my jungle grass.  It is now getting really tall and it is gonna be a tough job.

My grandsons pittbulls just came over to see their grandma.  I am sitting here, he has his dog chew, my housecoat is tucked around my legs (I love to keep my legs warm when I type on the computer).  He always sits right beside my housecoat and chews his doggy rawhide chew.  I can feel him tugging on my shoelace, I think that he thought my shoelace was his rawhide.  Go figure that one!!!  I have finally got him to let go and I showed him that his chew was only about 3 inches from his nose.  Oh no!!!!   I wonder if my feet stink!!!!  Doubt it, but maybe in a dog's nose, ya never know.  Have the beautiful, wonderful and sun shiny day.  Oh ya, great health to you all.  Cindi

Here's an idea...why not invite the guy over for a BBQ...break bread with him? 

There is a quote  that I like, it goes like this:

Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other' doesn't make any sense.

Stray dogs, or those let out to roam.  Advise the neighbors that you'll invite them over for a bite of Barby someday.  Feed them their own dog.  Something like "I haven't seen your dog around all day," during desert.
