Well, how lucky could i possibly be?
Here I am, an Airstream millionaire living next to a millionaire still owner (oh wait, no, that's not quite accurate---a friend with a small plane flies her down to Kentucky when she's out of hooch).

You can go to iTunes and hear a clip of it (or buy it for .99) by typing redneck woman...the artist is Gretchen Wilson.

I gotta get in on this................

I recently bought a remodeled farm house on ten acres. The neighbors are a 1/4 mile away. I got spooked when they told me they were Witches. They
bring us wood and meat, and call us everyday to see if we are alright.
They also hit on my girlfriend and pee in front of my daughter.

Did you hear the story about the frog, horse, and eagle.
A frog was freezing on a cold snowy night. The horse picked up the frog
and gently place him on a warm fresh pile of horse droppings. Later an eagle
swooped down and carried the frog away and ate him.

Moral of the story... Someone that dumps on you may mean you no harm.
Someone that pulls you out of a pile of dung might.

Maybe there are good and bad in all walks of life.

Move to NAPLES????

Anyone BEEN to Naples recently? Prices are getting so high, you can see the entire state from your roof top . You can get a nice little spot in a local RV park (pardon me.......RV Resort!!) for a cool $ quarter mill.....(and they go up to $500K in the nicest one.......is that 'on-lake' or 'off-lake'). You can battle the ever increasing traffic, the octegenarians who can't see or hear yet still drive like they think they're 20 somethings until they play crash cars with another 'cu-tip' and the condo commandos who spend their days roaming the turf looking for violators of the condo association rules.

Kid, if you had a large enough RV park in the neighborhood, I'd be there begging for courtesy parking and looking for work .

I wrote a song about my neighbors.....

Well I 'm glad we got good neighbors
Way out here, so far from town
And I'm glad we ain't got fences
If we did, I'd tear them down

Mama said to love thy neighbor.
He don't need to be from your town.
Everybody needs a brother
To lift them up, when their feelin' down

I wrote verses about all the neighbors. One thanked me by giving me bear meat. Anyway, I found a web page with a guide for folks that are moving
to the sticks. Bottom line...always wave, and live and let live.
Question, does Ebay sell fences?

Dave, good fences make good neighbors! I hate them too. Wife wants to fence in our whole 7 acres, we have 2 acres fenced for horse pasture, and a fence along south property line.

Summer, you neighborhood sounds almost like ours, in a way. I could start a similar thread.

Hmmmm, worked for a paper in Chicago. If you weren't a journalist, you certainly have a knack for reporting. I absolutely think you might be able to get this experience published. Jean Shepherd did all right with Midnight Dreams of Wanda Hickey. If you haven't read it, beg borrow or steal a copy, it is wonderful! (I stole mine, but now it's missing.) DO be careful. The wood borrowing experience was a lesson in courtesy.

If the shoe fits....

Great thread. Reminds me of my Wife when I first met her. She was a Doctor's daughter in Chicago and had never lived in the country in her life. I lived way back in the woods of Minnesota and have never lived in a big city. Never would either!

I invited her to a retirement party that was a country pig roast way out in the sticks and at first she seemed to hesitate, so I asked if she was nerveous about the location. She replied that indeed she was, the movie "Deliverance" came to her mind, so I assured her that if she felt uncomfortable, I would take her back to the city immediately.

I noticed while sitting at a picnic table eating that each time she looked my way to say something, my friends would quietly refill her beer cup to the top and by the time we got to the huge bon fire, she was feeling absolutely no pain! She then met a female Vetrenarian who was married to one of my friends, and then I lost contact with her for a while.

When I finally found her I asked where Mary the Vet was, and she said she had to go home. I asked if she was all right and she replied that she was too drunk and just wanted to get the heck out of there. I took her home and figured that I wouldn't be seeing her again.

I took a chance and called her a couple of days later and to my surprise she was friendly. I asked if she wasn't upset about the pig roast and she told me that she had never had so much fun. Figure that!

City girl now lives way back in the woods with me and has for a long time now. We were married two years after the party.

I missed this the first time around.. wow rolling on the floor laughing.
I think a privacy fence and some razor wire may go a long way.
