Ah, The Sweet Sounds of Morning

Birds chirping outside your window and the sun gently rising to wake you from your slumber on a lazy Saturday morning. Getting to sleep in a little and then sipping your morning coffee and contemplating the day ahead. Lovely weekends when life moves a little slower and there are no shrill sounds of alarm clocks to disturb you.

No, just the sound of a CHAIN SAW in the backyard behind you at 6:30AM!!! That has been going on for almost an hour now! Did your tree really need trimming at 6:30AM!?!

The guy that lived behind us with the big loud black dog that we oh so affectionately called Cujo, the same dog that was so bored he would constantly bark, has moved out. We were so happy that we could now open the bedroom window at night and not hear RUFF WOOF RUFF WOOF BARK BARK all night long, but now it seems that we have the Chain Saw Massacre guy living behind us. Sigh...

We had some yellers coming in to the fuel dock at 7 am. Yelling things like "NO, MORE TO STARBOARD!" and "OH WAIT, I'M GOING TO COME IN AND TRY IT AGAIN!" and "OH WOW LOOK AT THE CURRENT!" etc, etc, etc. So I got up, but I didn't help them with their docklines.

Isn't there some kind of noise law where they can't use a chain saw before a certain time????

Yeah -- this reminds me of our new neighbors, who continually cut wood behind our house. They start at dawn and end at dusk
