Crazy neighbor!

So my neighbor is driving me nuts! Let me start out by telling you that he is a very nice guy, but he drinks a lot. (I've seen him with a beer in his hand at 7am... actually he always has one in his hand) and that probably contributes to his craziness. There are many things I could tell you about him, but to keep this moderately short I will just give you just a few examples. First of all he is extremely paranoid and has security cameras on the outside of his house... actually they look like they are pointed at my house, which makes ME paranoid when my curtains are open. He used to have a gazillion work lights outside that he turned on at night... very bright, very very bright lights. They were so bright, they lit up my bedroom and made it difficult for me to sleep. Luckily he changed them over to motion lights that flip off after a while. The most frustrating thing though is that he goes outside at night, usually between midnight and 3am, and blares his music, screams at the neighborhood dogs and shouts Woo Hoo, Woo Hoo! Like he's having a party, but he's usually by himself. This has been going on for as long as I've lived here, but now his Woo Hoo's have started to change... They are now owl sounds (hoo hoo) he actually does a pretty good job, I thought it was a real owl at first! Last night though... for probably a good hour or longer he was doing fire engine noises... I kid you not! Fire engine sounds... what the heck is he doing, is he trying to drive all of the neighbors crazy? What's so funny is that he gets so mad when the neighborhood dogs bark, he screams and yells at them "Shut up you stupid dogs!" and he's the loudest freakin' one of them all! He's spraypainted in the street... Slow down a** holes, twice! The police came out and made him paint over it. I guess you could say watching what goes on over there is good entertainment for me, just not when he's not keeping me awake! There is always something going on. Believe me I could go on, but I said I was going to keep this short... I've got housework to do anyway...

Okay, that is strange. It would be hard for me to put up with that, but I don't know what I could really do about it. Strange stuff.

I feel ya. Our neighbors periodically get drunk and shoot at their $50,000 camper - I know, what?!

Also, about your poopy post - I meant to tell you that one time a kid in my class pooped in his pants and it fell out. Well, guess how I found out? No. He did not tell me. I stepped in it. Yes I did. Worst day ever.

Hey Courtney, sorry to hear you're having difficulty with the neighbor. He sounds like he let's it all hang out when he's had a few too many. Maybe he doesn't like the neighborhood dogs competing with him. That's really funny about the engine sounds. I wonder what's next. Keep us up to date.

Hey cuz, sounds like he has some issues. Find out if he's vet or ever been commited before you do anything. Primary thing is to keep the kids and yourself safe. I have several suggestions, some legal, some not.

Are you in H town city limits? There may be someone here at work that knows local police out that way . . . could really put the scare on him. Or go to Lorna Rd, pick up some migrant "help", give them some ball bats . . . you get the idea.

BTW, I started up a new blog. angrymiddleageman.blogspot.com

Im just sitting here laughing so hard at this!!! At the same time I would hate to live next to someone like that. Our neighbors have a really REALLY loud jeep that used to drive me crazy, but nothing like what your going through! I think it would make me a little nervous having my kids around someone like that! If he's sane and super paranoid, then he probably is hiding something, which is scary. Sounds like he's some sort of addict too. Unpredictable! If he's insane, then he's still unpredictable. I don't know which would scare me more. It's not really a great time to think about moving right now. You think you could make him miserable somehow? Make HIM move! In the meantime, get some blackout curtains and a box fan!

Also, next time we are going to the park I will shoot you an email! It would be fun to get together!! I didn't realize you were so close!
