Neighbors! We all have them. Do you like them? Do you hate them? If you don’t know them then you are lucky! Do you wish they would move? According to the bible we are supposed to love our neighbors as we love our selves, but at times our neighbors make that difficult. I have a couple that I might pay good money to help them move.
Last night I was watching the kids play and I noticed how spectacular the sunset was. I thought I should run in the house and get the camera and take a couple of photographs of it. I took my photographs and had my camera pointed above the neighbor to the West’s house. I saw my neighbor to the South out in his yard so I spoke to him and said high. Walked over to talk for a second and showed him my camera and pictures. I then took my camera back in and put it away.
About two minutes passed and there was a knock on my door. Now, I couldn’t figure out why the kids would be knocking on my door. My neighbor to my West was at the door saying his daughter came in and said I was taking pictures of his house. Does anyone viewing this see a house in those pictures? Maybe the top of the roof line in one or two. My eyesight isn’t what it used to be and that viewfinder is really small. I told him I had not taken pictures of his house that I was taking pictures of the sunset and then went and got the camera to show him. My understanding is that he and the neighbor to the South have a feud going on. They have had trouble before. As I told my neighbor to the West as a rule of thumb I don’t photograph people or their property with out their permission. My photographs will be of trains, animals, my family, or nature. I showed him all the pictures I had on the camera even the ones from the day before. I also told him that I didn’t want to cause any trouble for any one. He said "You don’t want to be involved in any one else drama". I said, "I have enough drama of my own". I am friendly with everyone and try to leave people alone. I won’t say I hate my neighbors, because I don’t believe we are supposed to hate, but I don’t want to be involved in the war. I just wish they would move, but I guess I could get worse neighbors yet. Ah well…. Enjoy the pictures.

lol. i guess he thought you were spying for the other neighbor. lol...

i dont really know my neighbors nor do i want to. i know of what i see or what my daughter tells me of them. we (my daughter and i ) dont really speak to them about ourselves at all. no loss to me. the lady to the north of me is ok. but...........i have finally said this after 12 years of living next to her. the neighbor to the south is an empty home and i dont care for it. but, i might not care for anyone that does move there. so i am greatful that the city has done a better job keeping care of the double lot of potential hell. i have an older gentleman and his wife behind me. they are in their 80's or 90's. they are nosey and want to know all my business. therefore i dont speak much. and let me tell you i think the vast majority of my neighbors are pretty ticked at times that i have no business to even gossip about. so they gossip about my lack of

Those neighbors are about as low class trash as it gets and they were probably afraid you were taking the pictures for child welfare or the health department. I wouldn't worry about them if I were you. Karma is a B and it will come back and bite them. Also the Bible says to love your neighbors... .doesn't say anything about having to like them.
