If all dogs go to heaven, I'm holding out for hell

My neighbor's dog barked for OVER AN HOUR last night. It began at 4:00 am and not until I was researching the internet to try and find their phone number did it finally stop. Incidentally, they are not listed. Naturally.

Not to worry, my other neighbor waited until 7:00am before hammering away on their new roof. As for the rest of my day, I will be a slave to the grout gods who, by the way, are getting way too manipulative with my time. I'm starting to feel like Cinderella, minus the singing prince and pretty dress. Not that I need a dude in pants that are too tight to spin me in circles while singing a gay song, but it wouldn't kill a fairy to show up with a new outfit.

And I lived happily ever after.

See, that's why you need to move on your own volcano! We have lots of mid-night noises here in down town Rexburg. There's the apartment trash collection starting about 3am, then the neighbors next door who start their truck (which is right outside our bedroom window!) at about 4am an let it idle for another half hour before finally leaving, then construction at the college which starts around 6am. Uuuug!! I highly recommend sleeping with ear plugs!

Don't you have noise ordinances in CO?

I know, right? Where's Glenda with YOUR new shoes. I'm pretty sure you deserve them after all that griping I mean grouting.

How does somebody not notice their dog barking at 4AM? I'll never understand it.

Personally I don't get the whole dog thing here. That is the one part of the warm weather I am NOT looking forward to. You have my sympathy!

Hot dogs marinated in Prestone work wonders ...

Just watch out for singing mice. As long as you aren't seeing singing mice, you'll be OK.

BTW: I LOVE that my new neighbors all have quiet dogs. Dogs, yes. This is Colorado after all, but quiet dogs.

Shane saw mice in our garage the other day. Rather than getting a cat or setting a trap I will send them your way. Sounds like you could use the help.

I don't get people who let their dogs bark outside (or incessently out the open window). Can't THEY hear it, for crying out loud? Of course, you could have our neighbors who make our walls and windows vibrate with the garbage they call music - rap. Thank goodness the police do come when called....
