The younger couple across the way have two kids. They are quiet and friendly. If I had a complaint, it is that he goes to work at 4:30 AM, and when he takes his Harley, I wake up when he cranks it up. The sound of a Hog starting up always wakes me.
My Neighbors on the West are a couple in their 80's who have some great stories to tell. He used to race Bikes and touring cars. She was a Army Nurse during Korea and Vietnam.
Neighbor to the East, keeps to himself, unless he thinks I am not taking proper care of my yard, and then he has all sorts of advice, which I thank him for, and then ignore.
The neighbors behind, one guy is a retired fire fighter, and the other doesn't talk much about what he does, or did. They wave in passing, but that is about it.
Everyone else pretty much keeps to themselves, but they always have a smile and a wave when I am out walking Pitstop.
I really like my neighbors.

For a little over a year I've been dealing with the just-moved-back
mid 20's neighbor's son and all his noise. His mom had converted
his old bedroom to her use, and so now he has a guest room,
and the window is about ten feet away from mine. For some strange
reason, he likes to put his GF on SPEAKERPHONE for their approx.
hour and a half long chats. WHY? That's if she's not actually visiting,
and then I get to listen to both her giggles and his great Tom Hulce
Amadeus impersonation, you know, the hysterical/maniacal high
pitched laughter. Not funny. Not funny at all. I did talk to the mom
and she agreed to have him keep quiet after 11 p.m. and I put
blackout curtain in my window since he leaves a blazing overhead
light on all night, but it's still not very good sleep conditions to say
the least, and I resent the hell out of it. Wish he'd get a good job
and move back OUT.
Then there's his parents and their trashy ways, I get how things
can get away from people, it does for me quite often but at least
I keep stuff out of sight of others. They had kitchen redone MONTHS
ago, and there is still a piece of cracked and taped up granite just
leaning against the house. I finally got him to agree to a fix up of the
'dirt' area between the driveways, mainly I guess because I offered
to throw muscle and money into it and help. But has grown huge
weeds in it for ELEVEN years we've lived here and it's far past time
to get it fixed up and not such a blight on the neighborhood!
Harumph! Thanks so much Oscar, for the opportunity to get that
off my chest!
