My neighbor is pretty neutral. Doesn't really talk to me, mostly cause I live in Baltimore and am a Steelers fan. But eh, as long as he leaves me be, and doesn't complain about me leaving on a motorcycle at 4 in the morning for work.

Last night we got back from SWMBO's parents' place with wedding presents in the car. One of our neighbors, Paul, rents the garage in our house, so technically he is within his rights to get annoyed when we park in the driveway to unload our stuff.

Not only did Paul not get annoyed last night, he helped me carry a beast of a box into the house, and offered to help me get it up the stairs. This thread seemed like just the place to rave about the guy, even if its unlikely that he'd ever read it.

I'll put up with the guy across the street who throws his pants out the window and the cat-piss sexpot downstairs if it means we get to keep Paul.

neighbors? We ain't got no stinkin' neighbors


The skys are great at night, my wolfypoos can howl all they want, I guess the closest thing we can call a neighbor is coyotes and other desert critters...

I wanted to bump this, because guess who is coming for a visit next week?!?! Yep, our friends David and Patti!

They are going to stay a night at our house midweek, and we're going to brew and visit and drink a few beers.

What a funny way to meet people, I guess, just kayaking by their house in Texas. But I'm so glad I did!

Well, the next time I'm in Pittsburgh, I'll stop by if it will make you feel better.

My wife and I are younger for our neighborhood (we're late 20's now but were mid 20's when we moved in). Our neighbors to our left were late 70's and 80's (the gentleman still flew out to Cali to visit his 99 year old mother!). They were great people. Friendly to talk to but never really bugged us. Asked me for a favor hear and there, which I was always happy to help with. They even let us tear down the fence between our properties so we could put up a taller one to prevent our newly adopted dog from jumping over it. They've since moved and a couple in their late 40's / 50's moved in. They're nice and we do they occasional wave and "Hey, how ya doing?" thing, but that's about it.

The neighbors to our right are in their 50's and the wife's husband had a stroke a few years before we moved in. They stay to themselves a good amount, but again, very nice people. I've been mowing for them most of the summer since her lawn mower was broke. They aren't financially well since his stroke and she works when she can, so a mower wasn't in their budget to get a new one. Family ended up getting them a new one, so now I don't see them too much other than the occasional "hey".

I have noticed now a lot more younger people in the neighborhood which is nice Always fun to just walk home after a long night of beverages instead of having to worry about driving.

I forgot about this until just now, but they came over and we brewed an American amber. They left for Texas back in November, but I kegged the beer and I'm bringing it down so they can try it on Sunday.

Looking forward to seeing them again, and hopefully brewing!
