PS.

Being the nerd (help desk) on the block I started a YouTube page for us. To give you an idea of what we've turned this place into here's a video from last year's 4th of July party.

We may one up it this year.

The point being just hang in there, get to know the good people around you and the crappy ones will leave you alone.

I hoped it would be like The ‘Burbs with a metalhead down the block, a crazy militant dude across the street, and a chubby mischievous neighbor, and we would probably be the Klopeks. 

Sounds a lot like my neighborhood!

Sorry to say but you likely are being harassed. Same thing happened to me when we moved to our current house. Lots of old timers that have been here since the place was built and didn't like the younger generation coming in. We've had animal control called because our dog was barking, city sent a letter because someone reported out of control weeds (sorry I didn't now the grass for two weeks), complaints about the kids playing loudly, blah blah blah. I made it clear we went leaving and so far they are the ones that got too old to stay home and left. Now I have some great neighbors and we cause he'll around here and everyone joins in.

Not a doctor by any means but my understanding is he had a blockage in his femoral artery that caused it to swell up to 10cm wide which was the initial swelling in his leg. This broke up, and the pieces were swept away in his bloodstream but caused blockages as the veins branched off and got smaller which blocked the bloodflow to his foot. He waited two days before going to see a doctor once his foot went blue and then black. Initially they rerouted his artery to try and save the leg, but this failed and the next day they'd to remove it. He has came out of all the heavy medication and looks to have recovered although he will now spend some months in physio. The leg had to be amputated very high up so they can't give him a prostetic limb and he'll be in a wheel chair now.

Part Twenty Of The Ballad Of The Band Of The Hand.

So as the manticore bore its wounded or dead rider off beyond the treetops, beyond the range of the deadly crossbows. Everyone would keep a sharper eye skywards from now on. Injuries were tended to and the group continued on its path through the forest westward for a couple of days, eventually turning north towards the Earthfast Mountains ignoring the ports to the south. As the party had no wish to travel by ship any time soon this was something of a relief to them.

Colesta and Zolis compared their spell books with each other as well as the one Zolis had taken off the wizard they'd killed when first encountering the Dwarfs. Colesta's mastery of both divine and arcane magic was now approaching a new height of mastery and she had learned how to balance such powers equally. Although she couldn't match Zolis's pure arcane might, she would be a lot more versatile.

To be continued.

Freddy - Your wife sounds like someone I need to team up with.  I'm glad she won the fence fight!  Although, I wish our neighbors would leave childish notes for us instead of going directly to the city. 

I just got off the phone with the guy from Animal Control who thanked me for calling and assured me his impression was that the claim was unfounded - but then he also told me there was more to the complaint - that we were not feeding the dogs and abusing them which he said was absurd based on his observations so he didn't even mention it in the notice.

Also, I got the letter from the city today that there was a complaint about tall weeds last week too.  I was kind of expecting that.. we have a couple sticking out of the bushes.  We're being fined for this one.  Awesome.

Well, I guess tomorrow I'll go out barefoot and pregnant and pull some weeds.

How 'bout irrelevant?  It's an absurd leap.  Blame?  Your subject is merely distracting.  Movies may entertain ideas, and titillate, but guns enable violence.  
And so do knives, bats, rocks...
As ER said, a gun only does what a person chooses to do with it. Movies give people ideas...and how many movie scenes come right to our minds when the subject comes up?
Irrelevant? Not really. A story well told can give people ideas...and if a person is unstable to begin with, then it can inspire bad actions.
Who responds that way...well, we only know when they do something.
"He seemed like such a quiet person..."

I feel for ya. Seems like every neighborhood has "that one guy" who's got nothin' better to do then dictate how everyone else should live. I like the pink-flamingo idea. :D

I've lived in my current house since 1999. Our next door neighbors are an older couple who have been weird from the day we moved in. Not un-friendly per se, but more like they refuse to acknowledge we exist. I'm told that the wife was buddy-buddy with the lady who lived in our house before us, so we figure Neighbor Lady never got over us moving into her "friend's" house. The only time she even spoke to us was if one of our kids left something leaning against the chain link fence that separates our yards, like "Please keep your stuff off of OUR fence," as if the thing was made of solid gold.

...I must point out in the interest of foreshadowing that this precious fence is a junky, uneven piece of sh** that's being held together in spots by zip ties, and has been like that since we moved in, whoever she hired to put this thing up years ago definitely ripped her off big time.

Anyway, two summers ago we had to have a tree in our back yard cut down. The tree guys came, did their job, and were done in one day, boom, no problem. A day or two later we got a note in our mailbox (!) from Neighbor Lady, saying "one of the neighbors" told her that our tree guy had damaged "her" fence and demanded to know what we were going to do about it.  She indicated that the top bar at the corner of the fence had been bent and knocked from its post by a falling piece of our tree.

...I must point out at this juncture that Neighbor Lady had picked the WRONG time to f*** with our family, my wife in particular -- because her brother had just died in an auto accident a few weeks before, and she still had a lot of grief-related stress she needed to unload. So needless to say, when my wife read this note she hit the roof, like "Is she f**king KIDDING?  Who the f*** does she think she IS?"... so I just stayed out of the way and watched, like "Heeeere we go."

My wife went digging into our archive of family photos because she KNEW we had pix taken at one of our kids' backyard birthday parties several years prior, which clearly showed the part of the fence that the "tree guy" had supposedly damaged, already bent/separated/banged up.

Anyway, she found a photo from that party which showed the damaged corner of the fence in the background, printed a copy and circled the fence portion in Sharpie, and left it in HER mail box with a note that said something to the effect of "You must be mistaken, because as you can clearly see, the portion of the fence you claim was damaged last week by the tree removers is already damaged in this photo which was taken three years ago (note timestamp). Shame on you for trying to accuse a local businessman of negligence, and for expecting us to pay for something which had nothing to do with us."

...I believe she also suggested that the next time she had a problem with us, that she should "come to our front door and talk to us like an adult, instead of leaving notes in our mail box like a 12 year old." :D

We have not spoken to Neighbor Lady since, in fact if she happens to be outside while I'm out walking the dog, she pretends she doesn't even see me when we pass her. Which is fine. :D

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
