My Neighborhood

I swear, I don’t make this stuff up.

We have a non specified neighbor around here that drive a vehicle without any noise suppression what so ever. He (or she) leaves the neighborhood promptly every morning at 6:40 AM and returns and leaves numerous times during the day. You can hear the White Wrangle Jeep with out a muffler from great distances. Oh, I didn’t mean to get that specific, but I’ll have to live with my words because you can’t take them back. We have considered taking up a love offering among the neighbors so that he (or she) can buy a shinny new muffler for Christmas.

Another neighbor up the street called me last night in the middle of a Walt Disney World first class fire works display just overhead of the neighborhood. It was about 10 PM and I was sound asleep. Gigi was on the phone calling the authorities to find out who was celebrating and who gave the permit for a professional pyrotechnics show in the neighborhood. The authorities had no idea what was going on.

By now I was awake to the rockets red glare and the bombs bursting in air. The dogs were going nuts and the phone was ringing. The neighbor up the street wanted to know what was going on. I guess he though I had gone nuclear with the potato cannon thing. All of the sudden the fireworks show stopped and the conversation drifted to the lack of noise suppression on the other neighbors White Wrangler Jeep.

Duke and Peaches ended up sleeping with us in the bed all night. Boy Duke does snore.
