Re: S/O: Crazy things your neighbours do to their house/yard/possessions

I have the weirdest neighbor He is super sweet and kind to us but some of the things he does I just
Example one
He has a lamp in his carport that is turned on all the time even when it is light out???? I have no idea why but HOA finally made him take it away

Example two of nice weird neighbor
when we were trying to get our son to wear a bike helmet our neighbor said he had one and started wearing it to help encourage our son to wear his but that was three months ago and now he is still wearing it at first I thought was sweet but now is just weird oh and he doesn't have a bike or ride one

Re: S/O: Crazy things your neighbours do to their house/yard/possessions

The lot next to ours has been empty since we moved in almost 3 years ago. Well, not empty... the house burned down a few years before we bought our house, and they just moved to another location in town and kept the land without rebuilding. There is a really nice porch on the property that was undamaged in the fire, and we've asked if we can buy it from them to replace our smaller front porch, but they won't sell it. So this nice big porch sits there. In an empty lot. Useless.

Hhaha, reminds me of Scrubs when JD buys a lot with a porch on it and they all gather around and sit there drinking appletinis !

Re: S/O: Crazy things your neighbours do to their house/yard/possessions

my neighbor below us has a statue of bear that is literally 4 foot tall standing in his front yard. and the one next to him has a large carpet square (living room sized) covering his driveway and old carpet runner going from that to his doorway of his home. i guess he doesn't like stones in his car or his house!!

My neighborhood is very traditional, but one of our neighbors just put in a putting green and astro-turf on his front lauun. (no double u key). There isn't a blade of real grass nouu, just fake, year-long green.

I can't wait to see the pics

My elderly neighbor likes to come chat with me while I'm messing around in the flowerbeds out front. This year, we got nice weather really early, so we out in a few flowers that would survive cooler weather in case it got cold again. Anyway, she would come by almost daily and yell at me for having those flowers out. She said she had nightmares that it got cold again and all those beautiful flowers died... OK. Whatever.

A few days ago she came and told me that she finally that that it was time to put her flowers out, since the danger of frost was over so she wouldn't have to worry about them dying.

Yesterday, she put those flowers out - and they're ALL PLASTIC! Does she really worry about her plastic flowers freezing???

Neighbors sure can be weird!
