That's funny.

We had the same scenerio with a guy down the street and his neighbor that lasted for years until the old fella died, their antics against each other kept the rest of the neighborhood in stitches the entire time.

What if I need to borrow your lawn-mower? I can't invite people over for a barbecue and expect them to stand in long grass. Someone might be bitten by a snake. It's a safety issue.


Ha!

Personally, I would have installed an X-10 or other remote switching mechanism on his light and shut it off every night when they went to sleep. Let them figure that out for a while.

A parabolic mirror, just on the edge of my own property to refocus a beam back into one of their windows would also be fun.

If I was blessed with one skill in life it's that I tend to not lose at such games.

I witnessed something that for me would spark a similar reaction. It wasn't at my house, so we are good, but...

I was driving to work this morning, and stuck in a residential area due to the city thinking that 7:00 am is a good time to do construction right next to a road that is the main "non-highway" path through town.

Anyway, this lady let her dog outside via her front door. The dog made a full sprint bee-line run to the neighbor's back yard (they houses are on a corner of a block and perpendicular to each other). The dog proceeded to "do its duty" about 2 feet from the bottom steps of their deck and run back home. By the way it played out, it seemed like a normal occurrence, and the lady didn't care that the dog wasn't in her yard.

1) I would want to kill that dog and then the neighbor
or
2) I would love to have that dog from time to time if I could get it to go to select neighbors and provide the same "service" for me
