Peek A Boo....

I see you!  Now here you see a crouching man.  What do you think he is doing?  I'll tell you what he was doing.  This picture was taken from my kitchen.  The crouching man is my neighbor.  What you don't see, is the dogs on the other side of the fence.  My dogs.  I was in the garage and the dogs started going nuts.  Now when you look out of the garage, you see the fence and the dogs barking.  Couldn't see the crouching man.  Tried shaking the cookie jar for them to get in, they wouldn't.  So that is when I ran upstairs to get my trusty bones.  When I looked out the window to see what they were barking at.  This is what I got.

When I got back downstairs to get the dogs in.  The crouching man comes to my door.  Pounding really hard on the door.  Which, I didn't like.  When I opened the door, there was crouching man, swaying back and forth.  Swaying back and forth due to one too many.  If you know what I mean.  He goes on to say, that my dogs bark all the time and he is tired of it.  Well, lets see....been here 10 years, 4 dogs later your coming knocking.    He told me the dogs were out for 2 hours today constantly barking at him.  Okay, since the kids are in school all day, Mom and Dad worked all day.  Who let the dogs out?  My dogs are house dogs, they don't go out unless we are home and we don't let them bark.  It goes through dh when they do bark.    I told him, he was mistaken that nobody was home to let them out.  Then he started to change the story that it was another day.  I told him, when you tease and stare down a dog.  Of course they will bark behind a fence.  Like they did to you. Like I caught you behind my shed a couple of times doing so.    He told me he didn't do that.  That's when I told him,  my husband will be home tomorrow, take it up with him.

Well, dh came home from work that night.  Grabbed my camera and  went straight over there to clear things up.  Needless to say, we haven't seen crouching man since.  This happened Tuesday night.  I'm one for keeping peace with the neighbors.  But things like this, just spin me for a loop.  The only good thing that came from all of this.  I will be putting some more fence up going down his side like I always wanted too!  I think it's the best way to keep the peace.

Have a wonderful weekend!

The man knew what he was talking about! Amen.

Sorry you're having trouble with your neighbor, extending the fence seems to be the best solution!

wow! at least you had caught him on camera so your husband could confront him. weve always been lucky in the neighbor dept. Weve had the same neighbors since we moved her! In the 26 years that weve been here, we have had two little spats, but everyone forgave and moved on... I would love to put up a nice white picket fence though.. just cause I like them!
I just went back and got caught up a bit on your blog, Somehow I missed a bunch of your postings!!
anyways.. have a great day

I guess he is bored and needed to stir things up only he got caught in the act... its awful to think how far he might have gone just because of what he was doing.
