Re: Bamboo shoots?

Sue, I haven't had any as bad as you've described, but my next door
neighbors who had been very nice over the years suddenly started giving me
trouble about my 3 (at that time) cats.  The husband would call and yell
that my cat was in his yard and he was calling the police.  In fact, several
times he called my cats were all in the house, but I'm sure Seamus was over
there a few times.  Still, if any cat was in his yard, he was sure it was
mine.  The rest of the family started getting nasty, wouldn't speak to me. I
finally had to put up a put up a privacy fence on my north border (which
severely limited their southern exposure to their rose garden) so my cats
couldn't go over there.

Several years down the road the man had heart surgery and since then they've
been cordial.  I think his having retired and not feeling well may have
played a part in his mood at the time.
