Neighbors. . .



It seems that there's a cosmic game that gets played out through neighbors. We usually don't get to pick them and they almost always come pre loaded with just the right idiosyncrasies to drive us totally crazy. The field of neighborly relations is a button pushing land mine of strained smiles and tested patience.

Here's a pic of my neighbor engaged in one of his two most infuriating habits, he's spraying bee killing spray 5 feet from my back garden beds. Ironically he's also on oxygen. Actually this one action has two offenses built into it: killing bees (very likely my honey bees!) and poisoning my food. His other favorite hobby is watering bermuda grass, yes in a desert. Beyond that he is actually a fine neighbor. Sigh, insert a long eye roll here.

Could be worse - my neighbors threatened to kick my ass if I didn't get off their property the other day. I was over there to apologize/ explain about leaving my weeds next to the dumpster. You know, like the city instructs us to do... Good T or C times!

That would infuriate me. My closest neighbors live miles away. Still, because they are modern monocrop farmers they spray all kinds of chemicals right up to my property line.
