I spent the day up at a neighbor's house who is faced with a lawsuit if he doesn't clean up his mathoms of useful junk from off his property. A bunch of people from our little town got together to get the biggest stuff out before the Local Affluent and Retired Old Women and Men With Too Much Time On Their Hands decided to make good their threat.

My neighbor's a good man, with more than his share of challenges from the world around him. He is one of the smartest men I know, with skills and knowledge spanning diesel mechanics to accounting, but his interests and intensity get in his way some times. Especially with those who think that this world is one of a competition between know-it-alls and property values.

Boy, he has some heavy stuff. My back is toast.
