I certainly take you seriously. I have suffered the same
kind of problems. One morning last summer I was driven
out of my house before sunrise by a neighbor's faulty
home alarm system which was set off by a thunderstorm
and continued for four hours. Barking dogs have also
caused extreme disturbances, and I am currently seriously
considering buying a 10-acre tract of land in the rural area
just to have some peace and quiet. In other words, the
noise-makers are about to drive me out of town. They include
barking dogs, auto stereos, loud mufflers, and boom cars.
Maybe I'll end up a hermit. I'm certainly not anti-social
by nature. I used to have a fairly pleasant social life in
this community. I could walk anywhere in the University
of Oklahoma area and run into friendly familiar people on
the sidewalks. Now I see roller-bladers with earphones.
There were plenty of hang-outs where conversations were
easy to have and making new acquaintances came easy
also. The noise-makers have ruined all that.
