Looking Out My Living Room Window

I have a great view of the mountains to the east of me and they are so inviting. Beings that I live on a busy street in this small town I see lots of things going on. There are cars, motorcycles, people walking or riding their bikes. The Post Office is on the corner just up from me and town is less than a block away. I have fun watching people and the things they do. I see a lot of couples, young and old, holding hands while they are walking. People walking their dogs which is a thrill to watch. The guy who lives a cross the street from me has two dogs that barks at every body and everything. He doesn't correct them. That is a shame cause it does get annoying at times. When people walk by with their dogs most of the dogs ignore the two barkers but every once in awhile there will be a dog that wants to have his say also. There is two things that bothers me about living here. A lot of people think they are on the freeway and really do a lot of speeding. What is strange is how fast they go by here cause the stop sign is less than a block from me. The second thing is that I can't wee much around me. There is a tall fence to the left of me that blocks out most of what is going on like on Sunday's at the Farmers Market. To the right part of the building I live in sticks out so that I can't even see the corner at all. Oh well, I will just have to be content with the mountains and the people going by.

Sometimes I will open the door and call out to them. They know me pretty well. I have thought about making up some vinegar and giving it to their owner. I doubt if he would use it though. He will never be able to tell if someone is breaking in cause the dogs bark all the time so he wouldn't think any different.

@velvet53 that's really sad Mine bark but not at everything that moves but they DO bark to let me know something is going on. I've learned how to keen in on their barks & what they barking at. Like the trash man, the water man they have a certain bark I know then there's the bark when there's someone coming in the yard I know THEN there's one when they see the neighbor walking down the road with 3 dogs in 3 different pens next to each other they ALL have a different bark to what's going on (MY alarm system)

hum? well it sounds good where your at but at the same time NOT as good that kinda makes me think you would rather be like in the woods where it's nice & quiet & peaceful OR maybe you'd like living where you are close to things.
