Welcome to the Neighborhood (NOT)

All 4 boys came over to the property line to rev their engines (that's right kids, waste that gas!! Spend more of daddy's money!!), wheelie walk, make obscene gestures, swear and, the lovely child on the left tried to hit my car with gravel but he couldn't get enough power. These kids also go sit at the corner of the property by the road and shoot gravel out in the path of on-coming cars to see if they can make them swerve. Oh, and all of this was done with the approval and encouragement of the 3 "adult" males present.

Currently there is only a pole barn and foundation for a house on the 43 acres. Last spring the owner was bragging that he had sold his house for $400,000+ and would be building a beautiful house here and a "state of the art" dirt bike track. Well, a year later and he and his family are renting a home after being forced to follow thru on the sale of the other home. I hope the legal proceedings cost him a LOT. I also hope he keeps filing for copies of my complaints under the "Freedom of Information Act" so he can keep shelling out money for the copies. The more this costs him the happier I will be. Apparently having stuff stored in the pole barn has already cost him as he reported his portable generator stolen. Gee, could be because you have so many people (mostly teens) in and out of there? Oh, and this morning he was seen leaving the property before daybreak with his ATV in the back of his truck. Wonder if that will be the next thing to come up missing?

Of course, the people who were his neighbors over on Gull Lake Channel, while they are sympathizing with me, can't help but be SO happy he and the rest of his obnoxious family have moved.

    Poor Teri! Who needs obnoxious neighbours along with the rest of life's tribulations?

    Teri, I have bad neighbors too, he calls the police on kids if they talk too loud, seriously!

    Hey did you check out the NHL trades? Marty was traded to Boston.

    I believe throwing stones at a driven car is a criminal offence. I had a beer bottle thrown at my car on the freeway and went and reported it to the police. They came back with me and searched for the bottle - said there had been lots of incidents and they were on the look out for the offenders. The gravel thing seems to me to be much the same sort of thing - intent to cause an accident. What hateful people.

    Oh Maureen- we called the police. It took 45 minutes for them to show up. Amazingly, not a single car stopped nor did anyone besides us call and complain.

    These kids are out of control....with the blessing of their fathers. Sadly, they will all probably end up in trouble with the law. What a waste. My kids are no angels but I would have punished them severely if they had done anything like what these kids do.

    Dirt bikes are the bane of our existence out in the country, too. I really, really sympathize.

    We had a county hearing about noise abatement..thirteen people recounted real disturbances from the dirt bikes, one person was pro the no action was taken, and the aural environment in out valley goes on being polluted.
    Washougal has one of the biggest pro dirt bike meets on the circuit, which of course the county is well aware talks even louder than those $%^&* bikes.
    Good luck with your struggle, Teri.

Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
