Finally have the phone lines fixed. Not exactly in perfect usage. But better then it has been. Pages are loading here. Able to stay and visit a while. Isn't that always nice?

AT&T had better not charge me for the 5 days we went without usable phone service. The static was so bad I couldn't call out or receive phone calls. Net was unusable after 10 min.They never told me what happened to the main box. It's been a problem for years. Someone ran it over once. Rain drowned it the last time. The Tech did mention if it was an underground line it would never be fixed. AT&T will never put out the trouble or expense to dig up a sidewalk. We'll see about that. If they have the money to shell out for expensive commercials for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Golf. They got the moonies to throw me a rope!

Now I have to get with the whole world. Break down and get a cell phone of my own that I've adamantly refused to own. I hate those gadgets.

No such thing and I am glad you are back online and in communication with the rest of the world.

IF I suddenly disappear from here it's because I bought a gun and shot my neighbor. I wish the dogs would train their owner to let them in when they bark...

CG I feel your pain. We were so grateful when the two yappy little monsters next door moved away. This summer has been blissfully quiet!

My petty vent - wild rose thorns. OW! Had to pull some twigs out of Murray's bloomers and got a couple stuck in me. Those little beasties are hard to get out.

I know the feeling. I get really annoyed when the poor dog starts whining to be let inside. Hate it when the owners are oblivious.

I understand EXACTLY how you feel.

We have a neighbor who started out with zero kids and 1 very well behaved dog.

Over the past 2 years the kids have moved back home and each brought a dog.

So in this house are living 7 people and 6 dogs.

Only 1 dog is well behaved, the others - including the people - are out of control !

I hate that we can't open our windows at times because of the dogs barking. And when they really get to going my 2 begin barking - the big difference is that when I tell my 2 No Barking they know to stop.

I feel your frustration CG.

Maybe calls to your local police will help. It really doesn't matter what time of day or night it is, if it is excessive they will approach it as a noise complaint.

We did that and it did help for a while. You just have to keep complaining.

Oh My MrsL, I'll have to stop complaining about our neighbors! I'll have to stop and think about how badly YOU have it. Trust me, in the Bad Neighbors contest you win. Well in this case, a win is a loss...

We've called the cops, the animal control officer, and given them a copy of the town bylaw that prohibits excessive barking past 20 minutes. So has the even more put-out neighbor on the other side. (I say more put-out since the little yapper tends to hang out on their corner of their house and that is where their bedroom is. The big woof-woof doesn't get as close to our house and we don't have windows facing the side so we aren't as directly in the line of noise. The neighbors (mostly she) don't talk to us unless they have something to yell at us about. Another call to the cops will make our life TOTAL misery here. I'll wait till our moving van is ready to pull away and THEN...

CG?

Could it be you and I have the exact neighbor?
Same thing goes on here. They let the kids scream on end. Dogs yap day & night. How they love to out yell each other. They've been getting the idea lately that when I slam my front window loudly I'm telling them to basically shut up! Rude I know. Mature it isn't. The way I see it if I have to hear you your going to hear me. They've been gradually toning it down some.

Even our sons get annoyed at all the noise from that place. One has been getting even. He idles his big ol' Diesel truck in the driveway a little longer than he normally would. It's parked right next to their bedroom window.

GOOOOOOOD MORNINGGGGGG SUNSHINE'SSSSSS it's 6AM!!

Have a nice day.

Munky.

ROFL !!!

DH and I were talking this morning that we wish there was a way we could remotely ring their doorbell. Those dogs all go nuts when their doorbell rings. We would remotely ring it around ... oh .. say ... 2am, 3 am, 4 am etc. Don't have a big ole diesel to annoy them with ... got to come up with something !!!
