I hope her neighbors put all their Christmas lights back up.

I have no idea how someone could care so much about someone else having Christmas lights up year round.  My neighbors have various colored lights up year round all over the front of their place.  Why should I give a shiat?  If she's 84 I might ask if she wants me to help her take them down, but that would be about the most I'd care.

If they install Xmas lights on MY windows or MY porch or MY dog, then I'll care.  Maybe.  Not if they're tasteful I guess, and seasonable.  Probably.

I digress.  The letter was really, really crass, but how was it threatening enough that the police really care?  Maybe the "don't make me tell you again" was the part that was threatening enough they want to investigate?  Maybe he just meant, "don't make me tell you again or I'll start decorating my house with strippers and taco trucks."  To me, strippers and taco trucks all over a neighborhood sounds like a great place to live, but I bet it would drive that woman crazy.

The original reason for "Solstice Lights", before the christians hijacked the holiday from the Pagans, was to brighten the dreary, dark days of winter...all of winter.

I drive home from work shortly after midnight every week night. I like that there are still some lights wired up in some trees on the way home. It's pretty and fun, and non-boring. People that are upset about this need to get a life, or at least a sex life.

HBK: Again, you make no sense.

You take yourself very seriously, don't you?

iheartscotch: Yeaaahh; threatening L.O.Ls ( little old ladies); probably some busy body neighbor threw the hedges.

/ mind they don't shoot you with an armidilla gun

// intentional misspelling; it's a reference to a movie

Which one was intended?

think_balance: LordOfThePings: I'm glad the cops are still investigation.

That whole sentence is gold.

"Police have not named suspect, but said they are still investigation."

Halfway though that last word I retconned the whole article in a Jamaican accent.

Old woman loving life while she still can. Go granny go.

Neighbor two houses over has had at least 1huge tow-behind camper in his driveway since moving in 4 years ago. Sometimes they have 2. Never 0, not once. Looks like hell. Fark 'em. Evidently they are too stupid to just sell the thing they are not using and enjoy the money.

Bill_Wick's_Friend: Having your lights up all year is kinda white trashy

I don't think "white trash" applies in this case.

Having your lights up all year is kinda white trashy, but it's not my house so I don't care what my neighbours do.

Threatening little old ladies in anonymous notes is douchebaggery of the highest order. Doing so over Xmas lights!? Time for anger management classes.

I can't take my lights down until the rest of my jack-o-lantern rots away.

Someone who cars that much that a LOL in the neighborhood likes her Christmas lights too much is a bit deranged if you ask me. When that somewhat deranged tells a LOL "don't make me tell you again", it's time to involve the police. So fingerprint the idiotic note and go have a talk with the sender. Then send them a bill for the cost. Call it the "asshat tax".
