Scene of the Crime: Missing Bulbs

Some crazy person methodically took all of the bulbs from our strand of Christmas lights. They also did this to 5 of our neighbors.

No Mercy for Neighbors Who Steal Clothes

Clothes Thief
So, tonight was laundry night and I noticed that somebody had put a polite notice upon the door addressed to somebody else who had “borrowed” his or her clothes from the dryer.

Crazy Ladies And Their Lawn Ornaments

crazy ladies

We lived in the upper half of a duplex and our crazy neighbors piled every piece of tacky crap into our shared lawn as you can imagine. Small wire fences, barrel pots, arches, ceramic deer and even a pink flamingo (not pictured). Not only that, but they were awful to live above. They called the police on us twice for “walking loudly.”

Peruvian Landscaping


As we prepared to sell our house, our Peruvian neighbor assembled this heap of garbage in front of her house. Note the Christmas Lights on the rain gutters, but the picture was taken in August!

The Crazy Neighbor Needs Your Help!

I’m starting to run out of ideas for pictures, so I need you (yes, you) to submit pictures of your crazy neighbor. I’m encouraging your to head out of the house with your camera today and snap a few pictures of that crazy neighbor. Most of us have at least one crazy person in our neighborhood, and we want to see pictures of your crazy neighbor!

The Mound that Ate the Neighborhood

The Mound That Ate the Neighborhood
Existing as long as we’ve been here, in the neighbor’s yard, is a junk heap that is the very definition of eyesore. I mean, you’ve got dirt, rocks, old building materials and, as the crowning glory, a tire.
