I am really not sure when it happened.  I was young and carefree, not a worry in the world.  But then, suddenly out of nowhere, it set in.  The curmudgeon side has started to take over.  At least I think that is what my wife called it.  I was too busy spying out my front window like a feline focused on a squirrel making it's way up a tree.  Waiting to pounce with those infamous words..."get off my lawn!!!".

It might perhaps lead from childhood.  Being an only child I didn't get the luxury of learning to share with siblings.  When something is mine, it's mine.  My home and yard are somewhat the same, I don't like sharing with my area with others.  Especially people I haven't a clue who they are!  However, owning a home on an extremely busy avenue, I have come to grips with trash constantly having to be picked up, the occasional dog surprise left behind and even a parking challenged vehicle once in awhile.  When it becomes a common, everyday thing though, well, yeah, the curmudgeon in me seems to be on the rise.

So, What Has My Blood Boiling Enough To Take To The Web?

Recently, a construction group has been doing remodeling on a house a couple of doors up.  Always great to see improvements to the homes in our neighborhoods!  But do we need to use my boulevard lawn to park on every day?  I mean, I know it doesn't look like a lot, but hey, driving trucks over it every day isn't going to make it look any better!

Maybe They Have Stock In An Alignment Business Too

Not Sure I Should Pick This Fight, But Here It Goes!

With laws in place that make the homeowner responsible for upkeep on wintry walks to help anyone getting from A to B via the shoelace express, it grinds the gears that someone wouldn't use them!  Cutting across my lawn 6 days a week is starting to leave a better trail than some elk and cow paths I have come across over the years.
