What's in your neighborhood that's hideous? Some vulgar thing that gets your goat every time you pass it...it just does NOT belong?
(Not any of our charming stuff, we're eclectic that's different)

Have any of your neighbors...cemented up their lawn? or decided to make their bungalow into a Colonial house? Put bars up on the windows?

How about those flowery scented railroad tie above ground planters by your bedroom winter?

How about cutting huge old trees down so the birds wont poop on their car?

Maybe a motorhome in front of their house (or yours?) with a Shit-happens sticker?

How about do-it-yourself giant expansions that go to your property line?

Patio Swings? Arbors? Gazebos? Hoopas??

As fond as I am of these, and those buzzy quartz lights which I forgot to include...I have a strong dislike for flag poles on suburban houses.

What about you?
Hmmm?

But you gotta admit, your neighbors need 4Wheel Drive...and I'm sure they are muddy all the time too from hard use..

Vent, that's the ticket!

Oh man I've been wanting to vent forEVER!

We have this one rental property on the block, and everyone that lives there seems to be a few lime squirts short of a mai tai if you catch my drift...

Well the last people that were there had this huge dog that would always be sitting on the front lawn. It would come after Gypsy and I every time we walked past! They had this bed frame as a fence...while I appreciate the recycle/artsy fartsy factor, it hardly kept the dog in. On a plus side, right behind the fence they had a freaky bird cage full of doll parts. That was kind of cool.

This family, their dog and dolls are FINALLY gone, but the craptastic bed frame of a fence is still there. Now if I can only convince the trans am owner that illegally repairs vehicles in his driveway to move his white trash mobile away from the front of my house.

Other than that...nice and quiet around here!

The numnut neighbors acroos the street and 2 doors down painted there house yellow. I mean Neon bright yellow. Lemons think this house is too yellow. To make matters worse they painted the trim floresent green. Incredible hulk green.

Neighbors have tried talking to them, called the city, even threatened to repaint it while they weren't home.

Everyone that comes over to my house says "dude, are your neighbors blind?" My 82 year old grandmother said it best and I quote "oh..that just makes me stomach hurt looking at that".

Maybe I'll post a pic if I have time.

i have a 16 year old nieghbor with a new licence to drive and a lead foot. We tried to warn her to slow down as there are lots of kids on the block but she didnt. So i called the cops and then got the 6 other nieghbors to call. What finally did it was when my nieghbor , who is a cop called and complained , she now doesnt drive because her parents cant afford her insurence hike from the tickets she got.

Once a year, Simi Valley sponsors "Cow Chip Bingo" -- signs get plastered everywhere...

Who are these people paying money to see a cow plop and what are they doing in my town???

Laney will like this: The Salty Whore..... a neighbor's beat-up, run down motorhome, the kind that has big globs of caulking around the windows & duct tape holding some of the siding on.... it actually says "The Salty Whore" in peel-n-stick vinyl stickers across the back...

the only road trips it ever sees these days is its move to the other side of the street on street sweeping day......

I do hate flag poles, but must admit one flying these would be okay...or the hide of a Mime.

I dunno. I'd like to be able to paint my house lemon yellow without worrying about neighbours giving me the hairy eyeball for it. I mean, if I buy a house, shouldn't I be able to paint it any damn colour I like?

Does that mean my planned A-Frame frontage for the house or 6 ft Moai will be in bad taste?

Next door neighbors-single mom with (we think) two sons.One is a drug dealer,the other thinks he's Keith Moon,drums away his afternoons.Haven't seen the drug dealer son for a while-my husband saw him get busted when he was out walking.The mom does all the leaves and stuff.They always wave and say hello,so as long as they stay away from our daughter,they're o.k.
