Letters: Noise or summer fun?

Residents should practice leniency toward summer noise

I really do understand peace and quiet… I am up at 4 a.m. all week for work and I too love quiet, but there is a limit as well.

I feel that people need to be aware and have some tolerence to normal summer fun and back yard use.  We all have the right to enjoy our home/yards without being nagged. Summer means barbecues, friends, horseshoes, summer games and music.  I am appalled at those who have little tolerence for people who have fun and enjoy normal living.

My husband and I are not “really young” but we are also not by any means “old.” This summer we have had one barbecue and perhaps two afternoon visits. It is sad when a person pays taxes and works extremely hard for their own well cared for property.

People —  life is short, enjoy it, and if you can’t enjoy it then please let others enjoy. I agree that there is a limit to noise but seriously, an iPod and a few friends on a Saturday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. does not justify a noise violation, nor does a summer barbecue with games.

Even the children in this neighbourhood have a hard time to play in our block without noise complaints.  Perhaps a seniors-only village or subdivision would be a great choice for those who have no tolerance?  Seriously folks, life is too short. Enjoy your summers and friends for all too soon it will be gone.
