Good Deal, Lynda. We have one neighbor like that. Frankly, he is not in
good health and I am just biding time. We have one fence that is 8 to
10 feet inside our line. I want to make an alleyway and put up another
fence about a foot inside our line or if shared expense, on the line.
Neighbor wants barbed wire, I want field fencing, so nothing's been
done. In the meantime, I sweat every time he shows his property to
someone(it is intermittently for sale). Because our fence is so far
inside the line, he could easily claim that land. He knows everyone and
has already accused us of moving pins, which we would never do. If
anyone has moved a pin, it surely wasn't us. Our property has been
surveyed twice in ten years, but neighbor doesn't believe the survey.
Oh well, there's one in every bunch.

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public
debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered
and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed
lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of
living on public assistance."
--Cicero, 55 BC
