    Re: A letter to the neighbors

    I've had neighbors like that. Once, the neighbors had a visitor who drove a trailer onto my lawn (technically it was on the right-of-way, but whatevs). This after a solid week of rain.
    When they drove off, they left 1' gashes on the lawn. I called the neighbors to ask when they were going to repair the damage. They said "That's just the way it goes sometimes." So I got some fill and some grass seed and filled it in while they drank beers on their patio and watched me. Classy folk.

    Re: A letter to the neighbors

    This pretty much is the way it goes now. Neighbors don't talk much anymore. I'm lucky, living in Illinois, my neighbor went to ISU. His kids are the same age as ours. We are outside a lot, but hardly anyone else is. That series of emails was funny as hell, but I wonder if the problem could have been easier solved by just knocking on the door and asking, "Any way you would consider a lower watt bulb or a different angle on the light?

    I make it a point to let my neighbors know what kind of crazy **** I'm going to do and that any damage incurred by them will be fixed by me to their satisfaction. It's amazing how well we get a long, but other friends I have, this seems to not be the case.

    This is from the same guy that did the payment with spider drawing and other hilarious stories: "I cant help it if some of the light goes across the road. Put something up in your window."

    Re: A letter to the neighbors

    I had a neighbor send me a letter through US mail about my dog barking. A simple knock on the door would have been better.

    Re: A letter to the neighbors

    Sadly people these days will hide from confrontation when they have an issue with neighbors. Before calling the cops or filing a complaint with the city, etc. just talk to them and come to a reasonable agreement and then use other methods if they refuse to cooperate. Chances are a lot of these people don't realize what they are doing is causing someone frustration. I have one neighbor who buys wrecked cars for projects sometimes and fixes them up to resell and he says he can't even keep one in the drive for a day before he can get it into the garage without someone calling the city to complain. Says he has no idea who it is but wishes they would not be such a coward and just say something to him because he never intends to leave them in the drive for long, he usually just needs to make space in the garage first.

    Most of my immediate neighbors I talk to whenever I see them out and I would think they would say something to me. I have had the cops come out one time when I had a party going on because someone filed a noise complaint but funny thing was we had the radio on one of the cars parked in the drive while we played bags and lawn games and was not up loud that you could probably barely hear it across the street. Cop even said they thought we had it at an acceptable level but we should probably turn it down more or off out of courtesy so they aren't called back out again. Never knew which neighbor it was that called it in but kind of irked me they didn't have the nerve to come out and politely ask us to turn it down if it was bothering them.

    David Thorne is great. Check his website, tons of great ones.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Naughtius is pretty clever. I am sure he has found a way to get back at them or has already done so.

    Re: A letter to the neighbors

    I can't stand neighbors that have to come talk to you every time you're in the back yard. I want a quick wave or hi and that's it from my neighbors. If I wanted them to be my friends, I would have been friends with them already.

    Re: A letter to the neighbors

    I have a neighbor with the same type of light. Thought about buying a pellet gun and shooting it.
