My neighbor is a meteorologist, hockey player, pole dancer and ballet dancer. His wife is really embarrased when he tells people he is a pole dancer. What do male pole dancers wear when they are dancing? Not sure I want to know.

In my prestigious row of the newest hangars only one (us) house airplanes. ALL others are rented to businesses. I am lucky to have a well connected buddy to share hangar with. I came from a long trip yesterday night and discovered 5 U-Haul truck dropped off by people along the row no way to get plane in Barely could get car out good thing MINIs are small

Vlad, that's sacralidge. Our local airport requires hangars are rented for airplanes. Pease New Hampshire had a similar requirement even for the condo hangars.

At Hampton Airfield, most of the neighbors would be called "interesting" ... all would be called characters

Glen actually our airport is very good and businesses around us have deep respect and cooperation. Yesterday was Sunday and UHaul trucks were dropped off by customers after hours. There was a box with keys on one of hangar doors but it would require a good load of TNT to get keys out

I thought Les Nessman said that. And yes, apparently I AM old enough to remember watching Johnnie and Venus. In fact, the software company I worked for used to have an annual Herb Tarlek golf tournament with prizes for the best "Herb" get up

I don't know if this counts more as frightening than interesting, but my wife just had a conversation with the guy two houses down. His whole clan has been living in that house for three generations, all The-Hills-Have-Eyes style, and he told her a couple of days ago he once caught one of the local thieves stealing his golf clubs out of the back of his truck.

He chased the thief down and gave him a rather severe beating (my neighbor is 5'8 and 110lbs soaking wet), the whole time yelling "don't come back, Crow!" Crow being the thief's nickname. As a result of the thrashing, Crow fell backwards and bashed his head on the concrete sidewalk, and went to the hospital in a coma. He eventually awoke, was released, then five days later, he died. My neighbor was up on manslaughter charges, but they were dropped, since Crow was released from the hospital when he passed on. "All I had to do was pay the lawyer and that was it," was what my neighbor said to my wife.

I don't know what's more disturbing, the fact that my neighbor knows all the local scumbags by nickname, or that he essentially beat one of them to death and got away with it. I take comfort in the fact that it may not be true, since he strikes me as the consummate BS artist, but we won't be having them over for coffee and cookies any time soon.

Maybe he wants an add-on rating? Needs a BFR?

Man, would I have loved to see that golf tournament. One of my all-time favorite shows.

This wandered in, sat down on the couch and never left.

Beer goes right through him.
