Nagh. It’s usually cold, dark and wet under bridges. No food or drink. How would you know when the world ended?
For a balanced global look at things look for other “news” sources. France24, BBC World News, Al Jazeera International, German Deutsche World to name a few.

Did you hear about the massive eartquake?

Yes I saw that. Very sad. They were waiting to see if it triggered a Tsunami and many had moved to higher ground. Worrying times for them.

So I'm making chili cheese dogs for lunch. Decided to cut up some potatoes for fries, and as I'm going about the kitchen, I notice another new neighbor moving in...a woman all alone, moving from a Hertz truck, so I see all her plants and bird cages, ok...maybe. She's really working hard, so I don't know what possessed me, but I found myself out in the freakin rain, inviting her in for chili dogs. Hell. And she came, damn. So I fix 2 plates fries and all, offer Mt Dew, we are eating, and damn, I like a good dog at times. She says hers is good, but I notice she's not as 'friendly' as she was. She studies me strangely. So we eat, and she stands to go and I offer to help her some unload her plants; heck she was just in my house, the jungle. But she says no thanks as she's backing away. Made me feel fairly uncomfortable, but I am hard to like, I know that. And just this morning, my Dr told me I wasn't crazy, just 'different'. Seriously???
So I shrug, and go about cleaning the lunch mess. Went to put some water in the microwave for tea, and...lo and behold...the chili. I fed her chili dogs without the chili, and she was too much of a lady to say anything. Yep

My visit wouldn’t have went that way:))) we’d still be looking for the heartburn meds after I dug through your kitchen to find the chili 😘

Good morning all and Happy Saturday.
We've had some rain but think it's going to be dryish.
I think my neighbour is reaching over and cutting my tree again:(:mad:
Noticed yesterday that quite a few branches that have obviously been cut rather than broken because of weather.
So the wildlife camera is back in position and if I catch the bum on film this time I'll see a solicitor.
It's just relentless with them.
I keep looking for a new home but it's been quiet on that front, Maybe sales will pick up soon.
Have a good day and TTFN

I just fully understood this! You are the sweet addled old neighbor next door!!!!! I had a Bill- he was the 2nd owner of the house behind mine. He drank 2 fingers-ish of Johnny Walker Black everyday and hung his clothes to dry on the line out back. He was retired salesman from Sears. He always paid me for work with gold coins- 1610796182872.png which of course only have a value of $1. I never minded he was an awesome old guy.

Years ago two neighbors had a tiff it went on and on until the Cops were called to arrest the Tree Guy. He was contracted to cut the branches hanging in the neighbors yard so out of respect (real Arborist) he went into the other neighbor's yard and trimmed the branch at the trunk. Luckily the Cops knew a little about city laws and it is perfectly legal in RVA. I have a tree that is growing next to VA Power lines that trim that sucker like a poodle!

When Covid first shut Oregon down we all remember the shopping, hoarding and empty shelves things. Since that time our shelves have stayed full, our hospitals have beds etc. So I go grocery shopping early this am. My list is short, including coffee up $2 from this last year, and NO as in empty shelves...Friskies kitty crack, oven cleaner (really?), and no Gerber's carrots. WTFFFFFFFFF

Same here Maggie, but this isn't overhanging onto their property at all. My tree (large shrub) is at the closest 2 feet away from their fence I keep it cut way back so they have no complaints on that score. But they object to the height which I keep between 8 and 9 feet so are trying to chop it down.
Because they are reaching over the boundary and cutting the height it is classed as trespass and criminal damage here Apart from that it is just plain bullying. Their garden is all concrete and they don't like wildlife, whereas I like my garden to be wildlife friendly. This has been going on for years and is very wearing.:(
