Fences make good neighbors.....

I need 1 of these.
The house next door is a rental and it looks like we are going to have another annoying neighbor.  The owner of the the house is a really nice guy. But, the problem is he thinks everyone seems nice. I'm not totally against renting out houses to people, but for the homeowner next door, you never know who your next neighbor will be. Three of the five renters have been an annoyance in the last 11years I have owned my home. My new neighbors seemed okay until last night when they got drunk and one of their guests thought it would be funny to come and shake my screen door after midnight to make it appear that someone was trying to break in. Well, I don't find that amusing. I am not opposed to throwing parties and having fun. Just KEEP it in your house and in your yard and don't let your guests be an annoyance to your neighbors. I throw plenty of outside parties in the summer to where yes we get loud and play music but, if one of my guests were going to be an annoyance to a neighbor I would step in and tell them to stop because I have to live here. One of my annoying neighbors was a complete lunatic, she would make bon fires in the front yard out of furniture in a residential neighborhood. On several occasions, I was afraid the fire would blow hot ashes over my way and catch something on fire. Fires are supposed to be in a fire pit, not a entertainment center in the front yard doused with gasoline. On another occasion, she was arrested for dancing naked around the fire in the FRONT yard. Well, she was evicted for damaging the house and not paying rent. Then we got the old man who used the f-bomb with every sentence he used and abused his handicapped wife. Believe it or not, I live in a nice neighborhood that is quiet most of the time. This proves that fences make good neighbors, but sometimes it's not enough.


  1. Wow! I am going to have to drive through Melvindale one night when I have nothing to do.

    Well, good luck to you.
