And to think...this post was supposed to be about my nail polish...OR be nice to your neighbors, you never know, one of them might be a blogger

I was going to put up a post about my nail polish.  And how, for some crazy reason, whenever I use this particular color it "bubbles."  According to Google, it could be anything....from the way I shake the bottle (apparently, you should "roll" it and not shake it) to the heat and humidity factor (really??? Who knew that applying polish could get so "technical??"  And really??? That is seriously bad news for those of us that live in the South!) but on the plus side - it WILL stay on and not chip or wear easily (thank you Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear! Other than the occasional bubble, I love this product*).

But then my neighbor pulled his goofy lawnmower out of his "Pod" and my thoughts drifted away from nail polish, as I watched him, in his goofy little outfit that he reserves for mowing (seriously....if I could figure out a way to capture him on camera without him realizing it....), to the fact that he absolutely refuses to mow "this" little patch of grass (which to be fair, so does my Hubby.....do I sense some passive/aggressive behavior between neighbors?).

Can you see it?  Along with the wood piled up that he doesn't need because he's got a gas fireplace....
Because in his mind....that is "our" patch of grass.  Despite the fact, that his raggedy old trampoline (which no one uses) is right next to it.

Which, by the way, is technically on our property (as is his fire pit - which is behind those trees)

All of which, brings me to this point....be nice to those people moving in next door to you....you never know if you might become embroiled in a lawn-mowing stand-off and/or blog fodder.

Which also reminds me.....we really need to get the surveyor out here to straighten out where that property line lies so we can begin to plan to put in a fence.  Because, really?  I'm tired of looking at that patch of grass....and that trampoline.



* Full disclosure.....I was not paid, or in any way compensated, to endorse this product.  It's my own personal opinion.

  1. It could be worse, the beverly hillbillies on crack just moved in next to me. They unloaded several trucks full of stuff, on the front lawn, two weeks ago, and it's still there. I have seen at least 10 adults and a dozen assorted children in and out of there and they have so many vehicles that our entire street is covered. I wish that house was still an empty eyesore.

  2. And I've got two barking dogs in the house across the street, and after talking to the owner, he tells me that he can't do anything about it because they are "outside dogs." Well... we all have our problems, but if I were you, I'd get a lawsuit going against the trampoline!:-)

  3. Get those property lines worked out. I've been through some serious issues with mine, including someone pouring a (very nice) driveway, without getting permission for the right of way.

  4. Oh, and taking down fences and trees! And riding four wheelers, because "what is it hurting?" (Ummm, it isn't your property)

  7. I'm cracking up at the passive-aggressive patch of grass that no one mows. Bwhahahahahaha. To bad you don't have kids young enough to go out and use the trampoline that is on your property.

  8. HA! That's too funny.

    Apparently our neighbors hottub naked all the time. I never look that directions, but my husband has caught an eyefull more than once. IF there were pics (which there aren't) don't think they'll make it onto my blog...

  11. You need a fence STAT! We've had neighbor issues a few times. The last one involved a previous neighbor leaving her dog who was starving outside 24/7 chained to a tree. Needless to say, she never spoke to me again after I called the SPCA!
