Nevertheless, mutual respect of your neighbors goes a long way if some creep tries to break into your house, yes?
Here in Jacksonville, my neighbor is 6" away as his bedroom butts up against my living/dining room (picture with "three" top horns). I've got a little apartment.
My house in Tennnessee, has 5 dogs so they're pretty vocal once someone gets to be around 1/4 mile away and lets us know. (live on end of dead end road by lake, so only 1 way in)
Nearest neighbor in TN that is not family, is about half a mile down road.
It would be fun to have your neighbor come over with some of his toys for some target practice.
