Donna, I believe that you are not allowed to make a lot of noise like that until 8 AM. That is the law around here. We have a lot of lawn service people and they are not allowed to start until 8 AM. You just might check into that and perhaps the police can give them a friendly reminder of the law.
The hubby won't let me say anything to them. (he can sleep through anything). He is the only person on the block that these obnoxious people will speak to. The man built most of the houses in our neighborhood including ours and the hubby likes to have access to free consulting whenever anything goes wrong...plumbing etc. They have a judge on one side of them and a cop on the other...you would think the cop would say something to them. Hubby is kinder than I am. They are in their late 70's with nothing else to do and just says they like to keep busy so just leave them alone. BTW...they have black topped their driveway THREE times this summer, with the steam rollers and other equipment blasting away early in the morning.
I can hardly wait for winter...he literally snow blows his driveway about three or four times a day. At least my windows are closed.
Just a funny note...there is a huge tall hedge that separates their house from the judges. It is right on the property line. OCD man trims his half and the judge lets his side grow about two feet taller and never trims it...it's all scraggly. OCD man and his wife cannot stand it and sometimes just sit and chairs and stare at it thinking he will get the hint!
Oh...I am not making fun of OCD. I am the one who counts the clothes when they come out of the dryer!
I shall survive!
I have new neighbors that just moved in about three days ago. I gave them the benifit of the dought. OMG! The first day they moved in they had the TV roaring like a jet airplane between 2pm-11pm. I knocked on their door lightly as to not disturb my other neighbors and these 2 black guys couldn't even hear me. I'm thinking....What should I do now? They just moved in....hmmmm Da^! it...... So I went back at 11pm and knocked louder on the door. They finally turned the TV down to answer the door. We have a 10pm quiet time around here. OMG I can not wait to move to a quieter place. I refuse to move into a large appartment complex again and I also refuse to have noisey loud neighbors again.
I got rid of the first noisey neighbors when I moved in here and I will get rid of another set of noisey neighbors. The manager and leasing agents are not friendly at all and the manager is a B----- word. Can you tell I don't like them?......
Now there's an idea, Littleneck. These people go to bed at 8:00 so maybe I'll wait until they are sound asleep and put a big ole boom box at the end of my driveway and play Muskrat Love at full volume for about an hour. Or since it's still light out at that hour, get out the chain saw and trim the limbs off the fir trees that line our property. Yup!
I should be kinder to these folk but they reported three people on our block for using black trash bags. We are supposed to use clear ones but sometimes the garbage men pick up the black ones anyway...so why should THEY care???
PS, this tread kinda reminds me of a movie I just saw called "Lakeview Terrace", which is a very good movie, atleast I thought so lol. (except for the killings of course, atleast I hope none of you are shooting any shooting any of your neighbors lol)

Fans only do so much. They really don't do anything for the low loud jet airplane sounds from my neighbors TV. I really don't know how they cope with not really being able to hear well. My son has tried the earplugs. NOT!
I have two fans in my room that I turn on at night. I have to get another fan for my son but that probably won't happen until next year when they come around again. I told him he could have the one in the livingroom but he won't take it for some reason.
