That's it? lol
If it really bothers you that much, consider it your fault for not planting
a hedge there when you bought the place. Plant a hedge now to get a start
on it, unless you like having your house right up against someone else's.
It looks like a 10' hedge should provide the needed screening. If he
moves out eventually, the new owners will probably be worse, since
the neighborhood is obviously in decline; so it would be prudent to
start the screen now.
After reviewing the evidence I find the neighbor NOT guilty on count
one of having to much junk, and for count two, the cook out? Probably
has good cause to not invite you over for the cookout.
Whomp Whomp Whomp.
Case is dismissed. And you are lucky to not be held in contempt for
wasting our precious time with this piddly bunch of nonsense.
You're correct, "That's not bad", if you don't mind rodents. I've seen the
mice, and he's complained of ant problems. Lord knows carpet holds
moisture, which ants love. Maybe in due time he'll be infested and he'll
get chased out. I'll get a picture of the back yard with the snowblowers,
or with the trailer parked in the front yard.
I'll be darned if I ever have to pick up after grown ups, even my 4 yr old
knows enough to pick up after himself.
You can add me to the guys that thinks it is no big deal.
There are neighborhoods around here where every blade of grass must be
in place, but fortunately I don't live in one of them.
If you don't like ants and mice, what are you doing living in the suburbs?
Ants and mice are everywhere, not just the suburbs.
Actually, the mice in the suburbs and rural area are more colorful than
their city cousins. I've caught calico mice of brown, orange and white
coloration here in the rural area.
I though the multi colored mouse might have been just local.
Years ago I had a hot rod Vega wagon. A mouse set up housekeeping on the
motor. I picked up one of the little ones still without fur. Her comes
Mama from around the edge of the driveway. Up onto the motor and plucks
the little one right from my hand.
She was a beautiful chestnut, white and brown with black borders around
the colors. I've never seen a mouse like that before or since.
You can't win.
You're pissed 'cause you didn't get invited to his party???
Turn off the emotion and consider it logically.
Helping him clean up the best you can, at your expense,
is cheaper than the simplest court battle.
People like that are experts at taking advantage
of people and making them miserable to get their way.
Do the best you can and live with the rest.
Life is too short to obsess over this.
More honey...less vinegar.
Be thankful you don't live next door to some of these pigs on Usenet,
especially some of the ones whom responded to you.
It appears you probably live in a well to do area. Some of these pigs think
that is nothing of a mess because they are used to the trailer park life.
Count your blessings!
