Default Yep, I like my new neighborhood in Florida

I saw the green flourescent sign on Monday morning, placed strategically where you pretty much have to see it leaving our development.

On Tuesday morning, the white one was added.

He needs to add a load of OO buckshot to the sign for a good visual effect

I have a buddy in Houston that uses those as "Curtains" on the inside of his garage windows. Tight patterns; big rounds; no burglaries.

I don't like signs like that in my neighborhood, it scares the crooks away and then I have less of a chance of shooting one.

I tried that once. The local cops started acting weird and looking glinty-eyed at our house during their drive-bys....which increased. Hell, even the foxes started laying low...

Mike, do you live in Rocky Point? If so, I've heard there been a few home burglaries too, so be careful. Usually if you just lock your doors and don't leave valuables visable, you'll be fine.

Please excuse my ignorance on this topic, but what is the purpose the green flourescentyour referring to?

What does it say?

Welcome to the neigborhood. I live up on Robertson
Thanks, nice here, everyone I've met is nice too. I am just off of Robertson, I probably walk Thelma past your house everyother day when we walk the loop.

I didn't think those signs would be there long, I'm sure the sheriffs and the realtors in the area didn't like them.

If you get in my workshop and intend to enter my garage, you need to open this door.......the pattern isn't tight but it does suggest I can hit you.
