I Iz Scared

A neighbor that I share about a half dozen fence pickets with has one of these Great Dane dogs. I think it is called a Harlequin, but I call it a small horse. Anyway, those fence pickets have been rotted and gone for almost a year. I gotta tell ya, it scares the crap outta me when I’m in my backyard and this thing’s head pokes through and it starts barking at me to come play. So when hurricane Ike hit just awhile back, I went over and and knocked on the guy’s door. I introduced myself and offered to help him repair the fence and even help out with the cost of materials. He told me not to bother since he was having the whole fence replaced in a week or so. Well that week has come and gone and the dog is still scaring the bejeepers out of me. So last week I went and knocked on the door. No answer. So I left a half dozen brand new fence pickets on his front porch, right in front of the door. Cars have come and gone, the dog barks, the neighbor sits in front of his house and smokes his cigarette and drinks his beer… and the fence pickets are still on the porch. I really would just fix the thing myself, but he has the “good side” of the fence and I am NOT getting in that yard with the dog!
