He saying "Dude, the neighbor lady came to visit, the least you could have done is run a brush through your hair!!"

These two Alpacas, along with about a dozen more belong to my neighbor.... he's a "bizarre" fellow so we won't talk much about him.... He has his very own "petting" zoo. About a dozen of these Alpacas, 3 llamas, 4 goats, 6 black swans, 2 dozen geese... abunch of chickens, oh, and let's not forget about the 2 donkeys :( I almost forgot to mention the 2 HUGH dogs he has in this pen, then 3 little dogs inside, I've lost count the number of cats... they keep multipling.... sorry, I could go on, but you get the picture.
Lots of times I wish that HE was NOT my neighbor, the "critters" can get pretty loud sometimes and when the wind shifts out of the east..... well, let say I STAY indoors..........

    LOL!!! Geez, I keep remembering things that are over there... I forgot to mention the 2 peacocks, oh, and in the garage he has about 30-10 gallon fish tanks with reptiles in them... I can't tell you what kind because I've NEVER been in there and that's only half of that story :~)

    OMG!! What a real ZOO you're living next to! I get annoyed just listening to the big German Shepherd across the street. This is a great shot.

    OMG, what a (kinda) funny story...., nice shot of your neighbors. I would be afraid of the tanks! Our neighbors probably feel the same about my husbands many, many fowl.

    Gee, you have your own 'The 12 days of Neighbor' song! I can't imagine the cacophony if they all start 'talking' at once - yikes! Hopefully they're not too close!

    LOL @ Susan.... thanks to all for your "kind" comments :) I don't mean to complain.... it does give me LOTS of photo ops!!! And to answer Susan's question.... they are just a little ways across the highway from us.... but, still within "hearing" & "smelling" distance :~(

    Some people get along better with animals than with other people. The alpacas are beautiful. We have a friend with an alpaca farm, and I just love them.
