I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

The fear of God put into people changes their behaviour, that's for sure.


I'm not a violent person. But this notion of "civilized behavior" has brought us to the point that bullies just utilize whatever ordinances they can to terrorize other citizens. The only ones that win are the bureaucrats and the lawyers.

I fight it here in my town every time they propose a code officer and code enforcement. People need to realize exactly what they're asking for before they hand over that kind of authority to someone who wants it.

I had a neighbor who never said a word to me, but went to a different neighbor complaining about me shooting in my back yard.
The other neighbor soon straightened him out by defending me and not long after he moved back to Filthydelphia where he came from

Sam, my defending neighbor and I still chuckle about him. Guess he didn't want to confront me for some reason?

I know you don't wanna hear this but... Like it or not it's going to be hard on your property value (no matter how nice your yard is), if you're living in a area where the others' yards in the area look like crap. It's because people don't want to live near that. We have a neighbor that's got junk all over, he mows but only a wide path around everything. I'm not the type to turn him in for it but I can certainly see why someone would want to.


Your absolutely right. I know property values and fully understand that I do myself no favors by not keeping my pig's ear looking like a silk purse but I'm not looking to sell or borrow. Besides the better looking it is the more the county will tax it.

Maybe I just hit on the why. Folks are strange when it comes to property values. They want it high as possible for going into debt purposes but complain when that same value gets taxed.

I know I'm not in the clear yet or at least by definition of the code enforcement as it can be interpreted broadly. One item is a currently tagged but busted transmission truck sitting in the yard. As explained to me it has to "appear" to run as code enforcement can not enter the yard. I guess I'll have to go out and move it from time to time. Other issues are the crepe myrtle and privet that I whack down annually about this time every year when the privet is post bloom. I let it bloom for the bees. But the rest of is the grass.

Part of the issue is that the property next to mine is abandoned and overgrown, the main source of my privet issues. I keep that one beat back with my once a year brush clearing as well.

I'm just waiting for code enforcement to try to hang that on me and I'll ask them to show me the survey pins.

I'm not in the same situation but am having a little fun with a neighbor. He's actually a good neighbor but a little nosy. He is retired and he cuts his grass 7 days a week twice a day. I'm letting mine grow just to have some fun with him. I can tell it's driving him nuts but he hasn't said anything. Don't misunderstand, I have a 60" X Mark parked under the shed so I'm gonna have to lament before too long cause it's starting to bug me maybe more than him. I don't think so though.

If you live in a neighborhood with covenants and/or if there is an ordinance requiring it, mow your yard. You'd throw a hissy fit if one your neighbors posted political signs all over his yard that you didn't agree with and that you had to see or painted their house the official colors of the Palestinians. And, we aren't even necessarily comparing apples to apples.

Or move to the country and do whatever you want--we live free out here. Until then, be a good neighbor!

Call it what you want, I would like to see if the neighbor has a legitimate gripe or not.

I would consider how you can make friends with this person, because it's a lose- lose battle.

Or you could just mow your yard and it would all go away.

That's what gets me the most. It's not fancy at all just rural county incorporated into a one mile circle map dot so the complaining neighbor can be mayor. Seriously, he is a mayor without pay or staff the county provides all services.
About half of the community has gone over to rentals and he's heck on them with the landlords on his speed dial. The rest are older homeowners who struggle to keep up their yards or newcomers like myself who took advantage of lower priced older homes, many are hispanic. The nice homes are mostly outside of the map dot on older family larger farm tracts in the county.

His big beef is his legacy as an old family an inability to direct how his community goes. I actually feel sorry for him and to some degree empathize in his desire to have some influence.

Warrior, that sounds like my old neighbor. Cops said it's a civil court issue and since he was nextdoor putting a restraining order on him would be impossible to obey with a minimum of 100 yards. Those are 2 of 5 options. The 3rd is file reports of harassment. 4th is let him try to cash the check his mouth is writing. 5 try to mend your relationship with him.

He called city in me numerous times for everything. City only gave me 1 issue because I didn't drive a truck often enough so I had to put in the backyard. My yard was xeriscaped (meaning drought tolerant plants) except 2 trees and a patch of grass in the backyard. Other than that both yards were gravel. He still called the city about 4 timmy weeds that just sprouted even though I use vegetation killer and weed preventer.
