I haven't really been her in a while and not really active when I have been. Apparently someone got my real name and is using it to post. You should all be familiar with my work by now. I only ever insult Edog. I realize they could imitate Mimi Seattle by making the L an upper case I so yeah, whatever. If it sounds out of character for me it probably is. No one get their feelings hurt please. It's not me. Check with me on FB if you're in doubt because I won't likely check here. I only knew about this because NW Moon asked me so I came to look.

Relax, we already knew that. No worries, his post has been deleted. How you been? You still sexy?

It's funny because I have been forced to be "that neighbor". There are some teen boys across the street who have, for some reason, decided my lawn is their park. They play basketball in the street and sit on the curb by my lawn, which is fine, of course. But they leave their empty water bottles and junk on my lawn and a couple of times I have come home to find them PLAYING in my front yard! Like boxing, playing ball, etc. I've told them not to and so has my landlord (who was ticked to find some bottles on the lawn). One time their basketball was in my backyard. I am surprised they didn't jsut go through the gate and get it. Maybe my dogs help with that....

Not an excuse but rather an experience. Boys just don't see their mess and/or don't care. If you tell them if they're going to play around there they need to pick up everything before they go b/c that's why everyone is getting irritated and barring them. Maybe then they'll pick up after themselves.

It would irritate me, too.

Good point. Since I last saw them, I haven't actually caught them in the middle of the lawn, but they still leave bottles and stuff lying on the side of the house by the sidewalk. I figure I'll probably say something one more time, then mention it to the parents if need be.

There are a few houses in that cul-de-sac that are occupied by rude people. Argh!

Mind you, they have a very large front yard.

I bought into a new subdivision. I was the first on my block to move in. No one had fences yet. Behind my house is my yard then a big open field. I was that guy too with the neighbor kids. They would walk thru our back yard right up near the house any time. One time my wife was laying on the couch watching tv when one of them walked past the sliding glass door, close enough to stop and wave at her. Came home from work one day and the ones from next door and a couple girls from the end of the block were running around and playing in my yard. Had to open the door and ask them to move on back to the field and not play in my yard. I waited before I did that, to see if they were just passing thru. But no. They were hanging out in my yard

I wouldn't stop a kid selling lemonade--so unAmerican, lol, but constantly playing and messing about your yard? Yeah, go away. Let them get hurt and see how fast their mommies find something to sue you for. I love tall fences and country land away from neighbors....my dream.

How dare we allow children to play in the yard! But I can understand the liability issue
