Strange Neighbors!

So, y'all know we live way out in the country. No neighbors within a mile or so. You get to know these folks, we're all we've got.

Our nearest neighbor is a guy named "Steve". He's about one piece of strange work, him and his wife. I don't know what these guys do, but it's strange.

She works some secret job for Lockheed, he's an out of work (most times) plumber. She's always sick, surgeries for everything imaginable. He broke "his back" somehow. We lease some land from them for the cattle. It's always weird. he's geeked about us putting our cows over there, but they're strange. Just don't understand it. Nice enough people, I suppose, they keep to themselves,but...oh boy do they!!

They take in these strays, to live there, many times obvious druggies. No parties, but strange late night stuff. I've had some of these strays knock on my door at 3am and just ask to "come in" (?????) Crazy stuff like this.

Now, ordinarily no one is welcome here, but we make an exception for "known people'. Show up...and get SHOT! Seriously. Neighbors are different, but for my nearby "neighbors". It's strange.

One night this obvious tweeker dude showed up at the house with a bag full of...arrowheads. Seriously!!! Indian arrowheads from the 1830's 40's and 50's!!!!!!

I asked this guy where he got them; he says ...."all around your house and property when you weren't looking! You know this was the Comanche stomping grounds and you have an old stage coach stop on your property, right???"

I knew we were in Comanche country, but I never knew what he told me that night (at 3am). Since then we've found many artifacts of the stage coach stop at the south west side of our property.

I had no idea how many arrows, just no idea!! They were fearsome warriors!

You know, we here on ATS are blessed, don't you know???? We actually have a real Comanche Indian here. I won't say their name, but trust they are way more wise than we are. One of our greatest members!!

"We will live on this land, just like you...and we will take what we need. And we will live in peace...because that is our bond"

P.S. That weird dude left to go back to Oklahoma, and is very likely dead now. Oh well.

Strange neighbors, indeed. But storied history, all of it!!

And...every sunrise and every sunset I think about this.

Doesn't finding so many arrowheads mean they were bad shots and missed a lot?

My wife and I went out with metal detectors and found all sorts of unimaginable stuff.

We found countless wagon wheels, buried wood stoves, pieces of plaques, pieces of furniture.

It seems the road "west" was hard, and what the faciliators back east told people wasn't true, and when they got to the Rockies, it was time to shed weight.

The real "settlers" learned practicality in the extremes!

Note - My best friend, loved him like a brother (no, actually we were brothers!), was a Cherokee. A wise and talented brother.

Just the sheer volume of them must have been terrifying!!

An absolute fusillade of arrows!

Very interesting story. Wish you could share more!

Some of that stuff is worth money to a collector.

You should check into that. You might have an early retirement object just sitting in the dirt on your land.

Wow, how cool to be able to find pieces of history around your property! Try to take some pics for us.

We live in that same rural setting. N. Idaho mountain valley.

We have a neighbor that is completely off of his rocker. We know his family; he had a traumatic brain injury a decade ago. He has spent much of the last 5 years as a wet brained drunk. He no longer drinks... but, the damage has been done. He is a very nice, pleasant person... but, the cheese slid off his cracker some time ago.

He shows up at our house at least twice a month. The last time he was here (a few nights ago...late), he saw a car drive down the road "kinda fast". He thought we may be in danger. The time before that, he thought one of our horses "looked sick". You cannot see our horses from the road in our winter pasture. He has been here at least a dozen times to, "meet the new neighbors".

We have grown to accept this, as part of rural living. His family... nicest people you could ever meet. We have become pretty good friends. When he shows up, we've become adept at talking him through his craziness, and sending him home.

Never a dull moment, even in the middle of nowhere...

Meth dealers for sure or pills. They probably think you're the strange one.

Have you thought about opening a musem with your finds?

Your neighbors sound scarier than mine here in Floriduh. And that's saying something.

You have a strange neighbor out in the country? Do you happen to be living next door to me?

There are likely quite a few Natives on these boards, me included. Always cool to find artifacts on your property, though.

I’d say stay safe if you’ve got hard-used types living nearby. No telling what people on drugs are thinking, if at all.

a reply to: Flyingclaydisk pics?

Your whole OP hyped me up to see some of what you found, c'mon man, you can internet you can post some of those pics!

I think I speak for everyone when I say I'd love to see those finds, and since i can't be there to see it firsthand, I'll take some pics in it's place.

It sounds like you've had some awesome finds, I can't wait to hear what else you find!!

I was lucky enough to happen across a Neolithic arrowhead over here some years back, I had it verified by a local specialist working for the museum. That's sitting in my small 'box of treasures', somewhere.

Please keep us posted!

Sounds like one of those things that make life, life!
It appears you have a healthy "roll with it" attitude, the day I finally understood one of life's greatest truths, i.e "it is what it is", is the day that I stopped looking for hidden meaning and motives and just lived, for right now, in this moment.
Anyway i always enjoy your posts, you come across like someone I'd enjoy a few beers and a good tale or ten with!

An interesting story, and an interesting place you live Flyingclaydisk, it took me a while to get it 'cause you missed the "U" in neighbour, what was this strange word you'd typed!!

posted on Apr, 29 2019 @ 12:11 PM
I know this isnt the idea youd be thrilled to hear, but you could almost turn your property into a museum!

Just picture it... Every Tom, Dick and Harry showing up at Your doorstep and wanting to poke around.

Exactly! NOT!!

I mean there's not THAT much stuff, but enough to be interesting. And it's not only this property but the area in general.

Am I the only one that feels this reads like a Seinfeld episode?? The whole rambling is about nothing! I expected to read about some super strange happenings, but got Rick-Rolled instead.

What do arrowheads have to do with strange neighbors? And really, what is so strange about an out of work plumber and his sick wife anyway? How do you know that any of your visitors have anything to do with neighbors that live a mile away??

It seems to me that YOU are the strange neighbor out there spying on an innocent plumber and his sick wife.

How in the holy hell did this quagmire of nonsense garner 20 flags??
