    For Saltybee, beemandan and I (and anyone else feeling old and cranky any given day)

    Get off my lawn.

    I have issue with a griping neighbor who likes to hop the back fence (dunno, where I was born you came up the driveway, hopping back fences was strong no) and come complain about dogs that she can't even see or hear from her property (had she not been trespassing she wouldnt have known they existed).

    Also had issues with methhead running around the place naked and breaking into a few buildings. Thankfully their little methcamp was foreclosed on. I did get a good 10 hours of video (lots of cameras) of funny looking naked guy running around in cold as heck rain. And yes, I put it up on youtube lol.

    Wow, I can't believe I fell for it again...
    Tried to help out a whippersnapper
    who needs a flashlight worse than I do.
    Wow, you'd think I'd have learned by now.
    I'm crawling back into my cave now.
    G'night and good luck.

    That's the youtube video I want to see.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    The carload of fanatics (I’ll not specify their religious affiliation) drove up my driveway unannounced. My old dog was growling. The driver cracked his window and asked ‘does that dog bite?’. My reply….’not as long as you stay in your car.’
    Me a cranky old man? Naw.

    Around 9 one night a car came up the driveway and shortly after came a knock on the door. I opened the door and the stranger asked….’is it too late to buy a jar of honey?’. I let the stock of my old twelve guage bump the corner of the door jamb. He noticed….and said…..’I’ll come another time.’
    Do you see a theme?

    The local FEDX delivery guy is terrified of my bees. I’m not sure why I’ve never mentioned to him that the hives stacked alongside my driveway are empty.
