You must live in a very small town. Did you say it's called Mayberry?

Thanks for the support folks

Yes, it was a room full of angry old timers

I had a dream last night, it was like a frankenstien movie with an angry horde of town people marching down my road with lit torches in the air, to rid the lake of "the monster"

Next year in South Haven will be tough. They are working on a noise ordinance that is so strick that if you fart load after 11:00 PM you will get a citation. I may have to move for a number of reasons but I think I will just wait for them to throw me out.

Kind of reminds me of working in condo's down here in Florida. The old people have nothing better to do than to mind everyone else's business.

You did the right thing though, kill them with kindness. I try to do the same thing, but sometimes I hit my **** taking threshold and blow up. It usually doesn't do any good.

They may be dead soon , but watch out for their legacy...Noise restriction laws. wonder if they ever complain about Harleys. Most people live closer to the road than boats passing by. I've got a ticket from good ole Lake Winnipesaukee in NH . Hey , where I come from they don't bother you yet(unless someone complains) even though there are laws on the books requiring muffled exhausts and limits. Good luck next week

I hafta' ask ENTICER at what age does the older generation start? 50, 55, 60, 65,70?????? I think we have some "old guys" here also. I don't think it is necessarily a generational thing. More of what people were exposed to as they grew up..... and
maybe this noise thing is a big problem because of over developement of water front areas. I know of no noise limit laws or enforcement of laws in Oklahoma probably because developement is somewhat limited (on the lakes). Most houses are over 100-150 feet from the waters edge and not crammed together. most lots are 1/2 to 3/4 acres or more and LOTS OF TREES to absorb noise. Fewer people, fewer complaints. Ya' just cannot make everybody happy, so make someone else (besides yourself) happy. Be considerate of others first & MAYBE they will be more tolerant, ... stop & talk to them and offer then a ride and maybe they will understand more. If not, then ignore them!! They want piece and quiet, but we want our piece.... in quiet!! No offense to anyone here but population density can be a big problem..... especially at vacation homes.
