Is It Full Moon or Something?

Or is it just because Merv Griffin died? Last night was a sleep over for my sister's dog Daisy. They had to return my nephew to school before he was initially scheduled so Daisy was our guest for the night. She was a little nervous and really wasn't sure what to make of things and it was a little warm for sleeping anyway.

What made it even more difficult was that around 2:45 a.m. the new neighbors behind me came home from who knows where. The music was blaring and there was loud talking. OK, I can deal. I fell back to sleep till about 3:30-4:00 a.m. when the neighbors and friends decided it would be a good idea to start setting off firecrackers in the backyard. So, not only can I see the flashing of the firecrackers in my bedroom, but can hear the noise. Daisy isn't a fan of firecrackers so she was up, then Jasmine was up, though she didn't know why since she's pretty deaf, both cats were walking around thinking is someone going to feed them, then Brian and of course, myself were up.

We put up with the fireworks for a little but then quickly became annoyed. We got the phone book out to find the non-emergency phone number for the local police department. Check - called it, the message directed us to call the number for the local dispatch. Called that....the line was busy. Sigh.

You're nicer than me. I would have had zero tolerance for fireworks that butt-early in the morning.

Oh man. Firecrackers at 4 in the morning? Really??

I get peeved if I hear any of my neighbors stirring after 11 PM :)
