Before things go any further, I would contact the Sheriff and meet with him in person to discuss the harassment from your neighbor. More than likely he is bullying others. He may have the beginnings of alzheimers and needs someone he respects to talk to him.
Unfortunately, he is your neighbor. Have you thought about inviting him over for dessert or taking him a basket with an opportunity to sit and talk without letting him getting you upset?
Sometimes, that's all it takes. Small gestures. The hardest part is for you to make the first move after his aggressiveness. You have to be real chill and ask him alot about himself, these types love to tell war stores-indulge him. he just might become your best friend-you never know til you try-he wants to be the alpha dog so let him know you'll let him and he may lay off you.

So, my neighbor is an ex marine who insists that everyone call him "Colonel". Ok. A little weird but fine. So he's eccentric. He's in his 70's done his service to his country. Fine.

Take a loaded '45, discharge a shot harmlessly into the air, then aim at his head, holding the gun with both hands.
Then, in a small, barely audible voice, say, "I'm feeling very fragile right now."

Welcome to satire.
I know satire already. I sense it. I'm not autistic or anything. But there is quality satire and bad satire. Nevertheless, thanks for the warm welcome.
