Excitement for shut-ins

The next door neighbours were skinny dipping in their hot tub yesterday, which I'm pretty sure is illegal. It was 10:00am, but I'd just woken up because of the time change.  I blindly let the dogs outside, and they immediately started to bark their fool heads off.  They wouldn't be quiet, and I couldn't go down the stairs to stop them. The only thing I could do was stand on the deck (where I had a clear view of the hot tub and its inhabitants) and yell, let them bark or call my other neighbours - the police officer- to come help. 

I let them bark, but I have plans for a new tree in the back yard.  It's going to be big and bushy... doesn't matter how much I like my neighbours, there are some things I don't want to see.


  1. I think that is one of the reasons we moved to the country. I don't want to be able to see what my neighbors are cooking on the grill for dinner or if they are skinny dipping! I just need some space after years in the neighborhoods. It could change some day but for now this works. Trees are very good things!

  2. WOW, your neighborhood is much more exciting than mine!!
