These Are The People In Your Neighborhood
« on: July 26, 2021, 07:30:19 PM »
Discussing past and present neighbors

You have them

Even as kid out in the country we had them. And they were nuts.  #banjo #music

A neighbor to my left has started referring to Vera as "V" or "Veer"  He hears us refer to her as V (in short) and of course Vera. She responds to these variations but he has begun talking to her through the fence and even adding a name. "Hey Veer" in what sounds like a Newfie accent. He's being folksy with my dog all the sudden after years of living there. Perhaps it's because we now live here in town full time.. meh
Now, it's a double fence! He has a fence and we have a taller newer fence but there is still some room between planks to see a dogs snout from up close between the planks.  Vera doesn't wear pants so surely he is not trying to get in them.  yuck

..why the sudden interest in my giant puppy

A little yappy dog up at the corner is our worst, because when she yaps it makes our dog jump up and bark. But now the house is for sale. That will be good or bad if it sells.

I could fill this thread with a thousand posts.  I'll wait until the 'roid rage subsides before I tell my honest to God tales of neighbors past and present.

Nope. I might miss them when they are gone.

This state is a bit on the bossy side. You'd have to really think about it.

I can remember only one neighbor, next door, that I'd describe as nuts.  That Bronx neighborhood was crazy for fireworks, especially on July 4, but as a hobby maker of them I might've had a better idea of safety than some of the people around me.  The next door neighbor was loading a 3" gun (looked like it was PVC pipe, not a good idea to use, in a bucket of sand) with a shell with bare match leader, and he was smoking a cigaret.  2 days later he was smoking a cigaret while filling his lawn mower with gasoline.

Our neighbor to out left at the river house is a very..  jolly.. rotund? retired criminal attorney and he knows how to live. When he's not travelling he (every Friday night) at about 6PM rings the bell he has on his front deck. This is the signal to people on our road that all are welcome to come over for great and plentiful BBQ as well as beer and things alike. Not only is he a real bonified grill master but he brings in kegs from micro breweries. He does however get rather offended if anyone shows up with anything other than themselves as he likes to fancy himself as the ultimate host - which he is.  Bob! is a neighbor from God!  Lawyer jokes do not apply to that man.
