Some folks are funny about their property. A new to me neighbor ask where he should stop mowing between our yards, where the lot line was exactly, it wasn't marked. I pointed over to the opposite side of my yard and said when you get over there you can stop mowing. My attempt at humor and implied explanation that I didn't give a shit a few feet one way or the other was lost on him. The next week he hired a surveyor to mark the lot line... Hard to believe it worth the cost just to make sure he or I didn't mow an inch too much.

Code calls for 8 inch max grass height here... I'd let it go and call codes on the jerk when it exceeded code height next time. Here, if a complaint is made, the city will send a crew out and mow it, then send the owner a bill.



Deplorable before deplorable was cool!

The anger is now subsiding lol.

If anyone ever needs a mow, let me know. Razz

It will be interesting to see how this ends once your neighbor comes home. Please post an update.

The dude is on some major drugs let alone the trauma to his core.
I was in that shape at one time.
The decisions I made were terrible and cost many friendships.

I mow for our neighbor who is in her mid-60's. She also walks our dogs for us if we're running late. It's a good trade, we help each other with our strengths/abilities and everyone gets along.

The neighbor to the sides of me, they have services come out. Where the line is has never come up, we just mow where we mow.

Do you need directions to my house, or do you have it covered with GPS?


Next in line after V-Tail, please.

Our grass grows quick so twice a week will have to suffice. Big Grin

A couple of weeks ago I waited until my neighbor left and spread weed and feed on his yard because I was sick of his dandelion field. No more dandelions and his yard looks way greener now.

Was that you? I was going to make dandelion wine and some asshole killed my crop when I wasn't home.

I have learned a lot from dogs that have owned me.

1. Everything is a threat.
2. All threats might be your friend.
3. Treat all strange things as a threat.
4. All strange things might scratch your ears, rub yer belly, throw the stick or ball or give you a treat.
5. Trust nothing.
6. Want to trust everything.
7. If all else fails, you have teeth, and you can kill them, or die trying.
8. "SQUIRREL!!!"

and last, but not least...

9. All dogs, go to heaven.

Life is too damned short. Approach your neighbor as a dog.




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

This. Think about it, traumatic injury and then you see someone on your property. Easy to lose perspective. A simple conversation should clear it up. If it doesn't I still commend you for trying to do the neighborly thing.

<Thread drift>. Hmmm. Not cool. Hopefully he doesn’t have cameras up.
Some people make a purposeful/mindful choice not to use chemicals/herbicides on their lawn. I have parrots, for example, and we are near a tributary river that leads into a large lake. I’d be pretty unhappy if someone, without my knowledge or permission, did anything like that to my property.
