What's mildly amusing you today?

My back yard neighbor has generally been rude to me. Today the lawn service came after 7 days straight rain, and mowed his lawn with a big heavy tractor with big bubble tires on the back.



Haha, if they play football on it they don't have to draw any lines

My lawn is a mess, but it's a marsh out there and I'm waiting until it dries to cut it.

Ouch!

Mine is horribly overgrown, only 10 days from the last mowing (and first of the season). But yeah, nothing doing till it dries out. (I'm hearing thunder outside my window as I type this . . . )

I planted grass seed in several large dead spots on our lawn, and all this rain has been absolutely wonderful. I haven't had to water virtually at all, and the new grass is already thick and lush. It's so freakin' GREEN here.

HA HA! Stupid neighbor!

The woman living next to me is a complete nut job; she spent two SOLID years building and re-vamping her house (question: if she had to do so much to the house, why'd she buy it just couple years ago? would have been easier to find a more suitable house than to do what she's done). Takes a lot of money to look that cheap, ya know?

HA!

(This is the woman who put a camera on my house---that complete NUTTER)

given all that, UT, looks like you live in a pretty swanky neighborhood!

It's nice. But I'm in this weird place now, post-failures, where I can't afford to live here, can't afford to sell, and can't refinance.

Dickwad back there puts in a pool - they use it once per year. Buys a trampoline because the kids two doors down have one - his kids use it once, never again. Removes his perfectly fine deck and replaces it with a permanent concrete patio - they never sit out on it.

Grapes anyone?

Yeah I've got this guy whose back yard lines up with mine. He says he's a philanthropist/art collector/ whatever, but he's too busy to mow his grass. Last year he bought a rider mower which is great only that he cut the grass twice the whole year, driving the thing at 45 mpr-had it up on the back wheels one time. Now he's got these grape vines all over, I mean it's like a horror movie-they're into everything, including my black walnut tree. He's never home, probably out scouting the next crystal ashtray, so anyways I'm out there with anything I can to pull that vine off my trees. Now who's the nut?

How funny Brianna...just not too long ago after our neighbors were annoying us, I thought to myself "at least they don't have a camera on our house like Bri had. I wonder what ever happened with all that?."

What ever happened with all that?

I told my ex husband about it. He said he was going to go over there and ask her why she had a camera on our teen-aged son. She took it down toot-sweet. Dumb cow.

she's rude, a rumor-monger, stirs the pot every chance she gets, accused one neighbor of pulling a gun on her (didn't happen) and another neighbors dog "killed" her cat - again, the dog did nothing. Her cat is fine. She makes shit UP. I have to keep telling myself that she's mentally ill so I don't just go over there and punch her nose in.
