Here's what the post looks like to me-

But, but, but, you live in Montana, on the border of Canada, the land of the polite, where no one ever locks their doors, and everyone loves Bambi. Are there misplaced New Yorkers living in your apartment complex?

Now there's some professional stereotyping for you.

Truly, I'm sorry you have such inconsiderate neighbors. Life could be so great if everyone would just behave themselves. I hope you can find a solution to your dilemma. Maybe if Shrek hangs out on the patio, eating ear wax, that'll make the miscreants think twice before messing with your yard.

Oh, isn't Montana the state where Wagyu beef is grown? Do you get it for half price purchasing, maybe a half cow from the rancher? You could ship it to Michigan packed with dry ice. Just sayin'...

Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

The Waygu are ranched over by Belgrade, MT. Salt and Pepper (Joey) would have better access. It's on the other side of the Continental Divide from me.

As for keeping Shrek on the patio...thanks for the idea.

Chief, it still says "Canada" to me. LOL I was wondering if I was really not paying attention during Geography class!

Ok. Closed and re-opened and now it says Montana. The magic of the internet!

PF, if I live to be 100 (and I really don't want to) I won't understand what people get out of destroying other people's property. My BIL could never sit outside when he lived in the family homestead because of the inconsiderate neighbors.

The last upstairs neighbors threw cigarettes on to my furniture and burned holes in all the cushions. No apologies, no offers to replace the cushions. I gave the frames away to a friend with a backyard.

That sounds like it's just inconsiderate, not intentionally mean.

I have had neighbours come into my yard when I was on vacation to steal. Someone dug up my fall blooming crocuses and someone stole all my solar garden pathway lamps.

That's why I have a covered chain and padlock on my grill. The chain goes through the handle part of the propane tank.

And that's why I remember oh, so fondly all the years of living on a ranch that was 3 miles away from a paved road.

That and 2 locked farm gates and 2 Dobermans did the trick. Never locked the door to the house (didn't even have a key!) the whole time.

I guess I should consider myself lucky that in the 33 years we've lived here the only vandalism that happened is someone tore my red bows off the mailbox post over the holidays. That was probably just kids. They were gone the day after I put them there. I probably paid $1 each for them.

PF, I hope those neighbors have moved out. They might have been inconsiderate to throw the cigarettes onto your furniture, but when they didn't at least apologize let alone replace them, they became ignorant pigs. If they could afford cigarettes they could afford to replace your cushions.

Anybody else subject to Mailbox Baseball? It's usually playing in rural areas where there are real mailboxes on the road.

https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/i...86bq9YvZ1AMqzg

It usually involves a pick-up truck, a baseball bat and some jerks after a few beers.

No bat involved, but our mailbox has been hit and the post knocked out of the ground twice when our neighbor's party guests have done a couple hit and runs backing out of their driveway, and apparently at very high speed and good distance. Posts were deeply and firmly embedded in concrete, and were thick, solid wood, so their vehicles were also hurting.
