Changing of The Guard

Hi Neighbor!

I've been patient with your weird music listening habits for quite a while now. Many of my weekend afternoons of peaceful gardening, while listening only to the birds, have been disrupted by your obnoxiously blaring stereo. At other times, I have been less than gently roused from a much-needed nap by the pumping beat coming from inside of your shed. And lest we forget, Juannie and I have threatened you on several occasions with a visit from the police when you rudely listened to salsa music on 11 at 2AM.

I know that you have problems. I am sensitive to the fact that you are in your late 30s or early 40s, are unemployed, are missing teeth and live with your mother. And your poor mother has shared with me that you went into a tailspin involving drugs and alcohol after your father died. The people we bought the house from said that you finally had the opportunity to go wild after your father died because he was the only one who could keep you under control. No matter what the cause, it is unfortunate that you can't drive while your beloved motorcycle and nurtured Nissan sit under tarps in the backyard. Because I am sympathetic, I have silently endured your odd and lengthy daytime musical interludes while you have worked on the vehicles probably dreaming of the day you can operate them once again.

But now we have reached the end of your musical reign of terror! The days of listening to your strange concoction of music that includes Ronnie James Dio, The Pussycat Dolls, Motley Crue, Air Supply, Queensryche and REO Speedwagon are over. I am letting loose with my own music in the backyard thanks to my birthday present from Juannie: Sharper Image wireless outdoor speakers for my iPod.
