It was a beautiful, peaceful, sunny morning this 29th day of June. I had taken care of the dogs, settled the goats to breakfast in their barn, and the pot belly pigs were quietly munching their chow. I let the chickens out to free-range and sat down to watch them as I waited for the others to finish eating. Then I heard it------"I'M ON THE HIGHWAY TO HELL............" Not again!!!! The neighbor, playing his music so loud his house must be vibrating like it's in a small earthquake----at the least. I'm not against music---of any kind----I just want to enjoy the sounds of nature at 8 a.m., not someone jammin' to ACDC. I moved to the country to avoid all the noise pollution, and I think the neighbor ought to respect that. After all, we each live on 5 acres, I think he could enjoy his down time w/o me hearing it. I know, I know, they can hear my roos crowing at all hours-----but is that even the same? I had to move to the country in order to even HAVE my animals-----he can listen to his music anywhere. I wrestle with the idea of going over there and asking him if he could turn down the volume, as it's causing quite a hub-bub at my place and the hens are too busy gettin' down to bother with laying eggs:cd . Or should I just let it go-----it's been going on every day this week, almost all day yesterday. I do normally like these neighbors----they keep to themselves for the most part, and don't complain about my chickens (not that the roos ever crow any louder than normal)----but I can't stand being forced to listen to someone else's idea of morning meditation. I'll probably do what I always do-----complain to hubby, the kids, fellow BYCers, and the animals, and let it go. Maybe the neighbor moved out to the country to be able to blare his ACDC w/o someone from Neighborhood Code Enforcement coming along and citing the "Noise Ordinance", and I can respect that. But maybe the neighbor could at least invite us over for drinks to watch the sun go down with my roos crowing as the background music.
