God love 'em. Every time I setup my brewing equipment they have to make comments, including her husband grumbling 'good luck with that once your baby arrives'. Every time my wife and I work on the garden he complains I'm creating more work for him. They always let their dogs crap in my yard. Today stood there talking to me while the dog did it, without a concern in the world.

Sigh.

Many times I've brewed in the kitchen with my daughter watching from her bouncy seat.

When we move, I want a house in the country, but SWMBO wants one in an 'association' so the kids can use the pool, tennis courts etc. Guess who wins that argument?

Was it Mark Twain who said "Good fences make good neighbors"?

Maybe Ben Franklin?

I hate having neighbors.

Last summer I was hanging out in my gagrage w/ a buddy brewing & drinking, just having a great time. Out of nowhere, this jerkoff who lives down the street comes rolling up into my driveway on his J.D. riding mower telling me I need to cut my grass. I mouthed off at him a little, and then he said, "Better watch your mouth boy, I'll come over here and mow a big circle in your yard." (I don't handle being callled "boy" very well.) So I replied, "Well then, why don't you just put a couple of eyes and a smiley ace on it and see if I give a sh-t." He was not amused, and we haven't spoken since.

It was the smartest thing I ever did.

My neighbors like having sex with the windows open. The wife's pretty loud, too. Other than that, I don't hear much from them...

Are they good looking? You could video tape them and post on Youtube!

One of my neighbors stopped by. "Hey! Remember me? I stopped by with my daughter selling Girl Scout cookies a couple years ago" Of course, I din't remember, but "Okay, how's it going?" He asked, "Do you have a chainsaw I could borrow?" I said "No, but I think David across the street has one." He said, "Thanks, but I don't know him that good. See ya later"

Here's hoping they have an adjustable rate mortagage.
I have three little doughball removers.....the boy likes the to taste the "hot beer" (MLT first runnings - nice and sweet). The only time they do not get to help is when I have 7 gallons of boiling wort on the back patio - too dangerous.

As for bad neighbors I told the lady next door she was a crappy mother. This was after their kids were shooting my dog with a sling shot. The dog lost an eye. We moved.

Hmm everyone seems to have at least one bad neighbor. I call our bad neighbors the Kravitz's. You know, like from Bewitched. She knows everything about everyone around. I swear she just sits there with binoculars and watches everything she can. And he does everything better than anyone else- just ask him and he'll tell you.

We've got another lady in the area that's selling her house. I sure hope we get someone good moving into that one.........

Yeah, neighbors. I have to watch the direction I shoot because the bullets are dangerous up to a mile from the .22.

Sheesh.
