The across the street neighbors have brought their ATV out again. I was really hoping they'd broken it because it's (a) damned annoying to listen to them run it for 6-8 hours at a time, (b) talking with them about it has resulted in nothing on their part, and (c) I nearly had a heart attack when I saw their 4-year-old running it.

I guess they'd only put it away since I complained mightily to the landlord (our neighborhood has a sign at its entrance stating motorized recreation vehicles are not allowed; when I asked the landlord about it, he said golf carts were okay and everything else was taboo) about it in April after three days straight where the children amused themselves by zooming around their house, running through the water in the ditch separating their yard from the road, then running down the road, through the water again and into their yard for another circle around the house. All day long.

I used to think my neighbors were ignorant of how annoying some things are (letting their dogs run loose, tuning engines at 0700 on the weekend, burning trash without warning us so we could go away) but now I'm sure they're just stupid.

When I take over, this neighborhood is going to be leveled and salted. In the meanwhile, I'll add taking pictures of their stupidity to add to my collection of Redneck Auto Shop next door. (He's the one I play opera at when his radio's loud enough for me to hear the lyrics on the far side of the house from his yard. I should post a picture of his "garage" sometime, it's wicked funny.)

You'll laugh more when you see the pictures. My dad was stunned when he saw our next door neighbor's auto shop.

years ago someone sent along a chain email pics of a stupid redneck neighbor...perhaps you should do the same.

I'm thinking about it, though I'd probably submit the picture to boners.com or someplace similar. No sense in wasting my free bandwidth (on geek.net), right?

I like to be evil with a little more anonymity. (:

He has a dog with a penchant for knocking small children over and "gnawing" on their extremities, barks all the time, excretes well over its weight in poop daily. It's no threat -- it rarely ventures into my yard since I started using the slingshot, and now that we have a carton of dragon eggs/crackling balls) I don't even have to get one near it to scare it off. Boom! (I wrap them in tape for more explosive fun, but that's another story.)
