The Big Season Closer

Finally, the Labor Day Festival of noise
... (with the down-stairs neighbors) has begun!

They got here Wednesday, to gain a jump in the activities.

After my very long n physically taxing work-week, today (on my day off) I still only got a couple hours of sleep due to the slamming door downstairs n the barking husky dog tied outside my door. They took a boat-ride to P-town today, n the abandoned dog barked non-stop the entire time they were out.

Then they all park on the narrow road making it impossible to back out without going back n forth 3 times, n driving on part of the lawn, which is now only possible one direction. So, to stop by at my friend's right down the street I had to go all the way around the block. It's pretty annoying!
They have tons of company sleeping over with loud talking, drinkin, n laughing. It's all expected here, n normal for them. The side "R" neighbors will no doubt be here soon, packing the extended family in for the last summer fling also.
The saving grace maintaining my cool about it all, is knowing after this week, the noise will dissappear, n only be very occassional hereafter until next Memorial Day week-end. Orders at work will also slow way down. Whew-
I just need to make it through one more crazily busy holiday week-end full of summer residents n tourist out-of-towners,
n it's back to the way I like it here.
Hope I can hang in here all bruised up n not enough sleep
just a few more days...
Looks like it may get cloudy n rainy for Sun n Mon, due to tropical storm Ernesto leftovers headin this direction, which'll also help folks leave early.
Have a good last of summer fling, everyone! I'll be workin it-

have you talked to D. just to let him know that you work nights? if you mention it to him, maybe it'll help cut down on the noise. i know they own the place, but they can atleast be a little more respectful to the person whose been paying their mortgage for the past 20 years, b/c i'm positive that's where the rent money is going.. hell i bet now it's paying the taxes, which surprisingly arent' that expensive.. (i looked online at public records this morning. i was being nosey) we know for sure that the money your putting towards rent isn't going to building maintenence. heh. i hope the weekend calms down once the rain hits.

Hey snag,

I get to work on Monday, interviewing tourist coming home from tahoe and poits east. fun stuff.

I have some stuff coming up that I wrote this little canned spiel for. Sorry for the form-letterish style, but there's a lot of you guys out there!

Sorry I don't get a chance to comment much anymore, life got exceedingly busy in a short period of time.

I'll be honest in that this is not entirely a social call. I have been selected to compete in a local blogging competition on the isssues facing America. It's sponsored by a business-lifestyle magazine linked to an event put on ny the Sac Chamber of Commerce.

The event is probably geared towards a slightly right-of-center audience (business people), but I'm ok with that. I posted today about it with all the appropriate links. I'd appreciate it if you would take a look - it kicks off on Tuesday.

MB, ya, I told D Jr about nights at the beginning of the summer n mention the long hours all the time. I've told him about Rocky's barking too.
I'm aware the money I pay covers more than the Mortgage/Ins. cost, taxes, n water bill for this place. I go to Town Hall n look it up in the assessors book evey year- so now it's online, too? or just for agents?
Yep, gotta love the week-end rain!

Mike, I think a note to indicate a new post is perfectly acceptable. Contest? Good luck, n hope ya win! I'll have time to read n comment in a little bit-

I don't care what you say, any boat not in the water looks shabby and shipwrecked when dry-docked. On top of that, they are ruining your view, and making it ompossible to drive around. Boo to the neighbors!

Ellen, Wow, I've got a "Boo the neighbors" rally going on! They don't even realize how annoying they are. These folks lack common sense n consideration- but they did grow up in very crowded Dorchester, which may be why...

Ah.... Dorchester.... that does explain a lot! I remember the area well: Boston wanna-be's.
I remember traveling from NH one night to see my lying-cheating skunk of a boyfriend back in the 80's when I got caught in between two cars that were having a shoot-out with one another. Such fun!
