My neighbors are a young couple with at least one small child...And a hound dog.  He/she is out there barking at who knows what.  It's kind of strange since when I pulled up yesterday.  I had to go really slow just to keep from running over the dog, he wasn't tied up.  Here I am getting out of my truck, it takes me a little longer with my crutches and I am usually carrying something too.  The silly ass dog was at the back of my truck just looking at me. He was startled when he knew I saw him, he ran off and started barking at me.

Is there a local leash ordinance? 

My suggestion:

If there is, print it out, put in an envelope and mail it to them anonymously.

Suggest that if they don't tie up or fence in their dog, you'll report them to the local authorities.

He's out there barking now, Jimbo.  It really doesn't bother me that much, it's not as bad as the chickens sh*tting on my sidewalk.  I want to be a good neighbor.  According to my brother, the neighbor is a hot looking woman in her early 20s.  She actually said 'good morning' to me the other day. No eye contact...I said "hi".   I'm an introvert.

I've got a nice looking young gal living across the street from me. 

I think she works at a hospital or a doctor's office, because I sometimes see her leaving the house in scrubs.

But she's very sweet and friendly. 

We've chatted a few times.

I wish I was about 20 years younger and about 100 lbs lighter.

I'd be "chatting her up" a good bit more.

Make friends with him by throwing him a cheap dog snack once in a while (preferably when you are not driving up. )  Condition him so that when he barks at you, he gets nothing, if he behaves (like not barking), he gets a treat.  Eventually, you should get him to shut up just by yelling at him. At worst, the neighbor's dog will get so fat he'll keel over...

The dog came over here and stole my trash bag.  He must have smelled the chicken bones.  I see the bag over by their front door.

That's actually pretty funny.

Now the owners have to clean up your trash on their front door step.

You should do that more often. Leave the bag where the dog can get to it easily.

Maybe they'll get tired of picking up your trash off their doorstep and do something to keep him out of your yard.

LOL    I think he is a retriever.
Most of the dogs I know would have just ripped the bag apart right there next to my door.

The lady (I think), once pulled the trash cans back to my house and put them in a place where the wind would not blow them over.

We have been using this firm for our taxes for over 15 years.  I called them and told them.

We have divorced, we will not be filing a joint tax return.  I gave them both of our new addresses.

The paperwork shows that we are still married, filing a joint return.  Dammit! We paid property tax for the first 6 months at the other place.  I'm not sure how they will tax my windfall with the sale of the house plus the purchase of my new place.  Linda just has her retirement annuity but I thought she should get the credit for the property tax from early last year.

My low tire light came on on the way home from the big O. I'm still getting an email from OnStar...Low right rear tire warning.  Yeah, I know!
