As usual Tom is not quite incorrect but again has presented the situation like a dick. The cure for that is a moat and a wall with snipers. I'd imagine the neighbors would be happy to pony up the expense to keep Tom at home eating rotting bananas. It's FL not Mexico. 

I don't know a nicer way to talk about fruit thieves. I see this:

Had a similar situation where I grew up - a shortcut through an apple orchard cut several hundred yards off the uphill climb walking home when I was a kid.

Naturally a few apples got eaten along the footpath.

The owner spent untold $thousands to install an 8' chain link fence around the orchard to keep people from cutting across.

Being an asshole can be expensive.


And I read, "our persistent trespassing and stealing caused a farmer to have to invest in a fence. What an asshole!"

I think that gets the "who is an asshole" answer exactly backwards.

If you want fruit from an orchard or a yard, ask permission and/or offer to help to produce it, assholes.

There's no way my wife and I are going to eat all of those before they go bad. I tour around the neighborhood giving them away.

Why not donate them to a food bank or some other facility that helps the needy?

Wow,  high standards of self righteousness going on round here.  What a great way to create community and build goodwill among his neighbors.  How do you know some of his neighbors aren't needy in ways you haven't considered?

Maybe there is someone's grandma near by who is usually a consistent volunteer, social worker, food prepper/cook,  etc,  at the local homeless shelter but due to a family death etc. she is too depressed to leave the house.  Then out of the blue Tom shows up with bananas to share, goodwill is reactivated and off she goes back to her volunteer work etc.   

use your imagination on how goodwill can spread or not,

It's not really about the fruit. It's the trespass. Between wives I always move back aboard. I cannot tolerate rudeness. Too bad the Gadsden flag has been co-opted because I sure agree with the sentiment.

In our more rural areas there are a lot of freely accessible groves, most of them with old trees and fruits. These have been outshadowed by modern "industrial" species and those are usually heavily sprayed with insecticides too. Interestingly, in the past few years a lot of people started to feel there was something missing: the taste and texture of naturally grown, "organic" if you will, fruit (and bread and eggs and meat, but that's a different story).

Of course, simply entering even unfenced property to collect some apples is not the right thing to do, we agree on that. At the same time, many owners of those groves were getting too old or couldn't be bothered to invest the time and labour to cultivate and harvest their trees and bushes, partly because the market prices do not justify the work.

Two years or so ago, a simple and elegant solution as was found: Tie some yellow ribbons to the trees that are free for all. And it works! There is little to no waste anymore, people get some of the nicest fruit for free (and are even free to sell them), trees get cut and cultivated by volunteers. Win-win all around.

Please read this as a humble proposal how to handle excess crops without cutting own the trees.

I was thinking it must have been a real slow day for the cops to have that many cars chasing a school bus.  The overabundance of police cars probably created a bigger traffic hazard than the kid in the bus.

Yeah this. We used to have 'free campers' coming and staying a day or 2 on private land outside our back gate and on a line to our access to the waterfront. One day we got a mouthful about going through their camp which was right on the walking track used by all the locals. Stupid and selfish place to camp, which is what they got told. There's always one, we let it go.

A few months later I was away in the Southern Ocean and my GF hears the water pump kick on early one morning - we're on tank water from rainfall. Thinking a pipe had fractured she went out to check and found a person had driven up from the back gate and was filling all his water cans at our tank. When she told him off for it, his reply was that the water fell from the sky, it was free and he didn't plan on stopping. GF is 5'1" tall, slim, not an intimidating figure.

She turned off the circuit breaker, told him the water might be free from the sky but the pump wasn't, nor was the electricity or the storage tank and to get off of the property as he was trespassing, threatened to call the cops if he didn't leave now. In return she got some abuse and threats.

Problem for the campers was, they were on land owned by the local Tasmanian Land Council and we're on very good terms with them. She rang the caretaker and 30 minutes later a 4 door utility turns up with 5 big blokes in it and campers got escorted off of the place. Shortly after a locked gate got installed on the back road. Been 12 years now, no random people camping there.

If they'd come to the house, knocked and asked for water, we would have said yes as we'd done in the past. The actual water wasn't the issue.

Moral - it only takes one or 2 arseholes to cause a pushback. No doubt those people still think that we're the arseholes for what we did. I'm OK with that.

So if you're someone who thinks that it's just fine to take a shortcut without permission through another person's place and help yourself to their fruit as you go, perhaps the person causing the fences and gates is - you.

Here in NZ we live north of Auckland and temp is similar to Florida. Lots of commercial citrus but also large numbers of homes have trees laden with fruit. You can call a group that sends volunteers to pick the fruit and then hand on to shipping companies will carry it free for distribution to folks in the South Island where its to cold for them to grow

Just for size comparison as NZ should be reversed.

Yeah maybe. At what point does it become a PITA though? I can make the distinction just fine - wonder how many of those kids grew up thinking it was OK to cut across someone else's place without asking.

FWIW we give away a shit-ton of fruit every year. Plus surplus eggs etc. GF likes growing stuff and is good at it. We keep on planting more fruit trees. But it's our decision to give it away not some random stranger's decision to take them without permission.

Yeah look, school kids - mostly they get a pass IMO. Not like I never did any of that sort of shit myself at that age...

It's the same old story. One person or a small number is rarely a problem, just like tossing one can into the street or flushing a single turd into the anchorage isn't a problem. It's when it escalates from there that things become a problem.

We're thinking of planting some extra fruit trees for the wildlife - the wallabies clean up all the windfall apples, plums etc now as do the native hens. Could plant trees along the back fence line I suppose. The locals walking by would be welcome to the fruit.

If they wanted 'free' water there was an entire bay of salt water available, or fresh water in the dam. Might have had a few extras in it but hey, it was free rainfall runoff.

Earlier this week, Governor Ron DeSantis lifted attendance restrictions at sporting events in the Sunshine State as part of Phase 3 of Florida’s re-opening amid the COVID-19 crisis.

That means venues in the state, including the stadiums of three NFL teams and many college football teams, can be packed to full capacity.

My wife and I are both children of immigrants who inherited their work ethic. Our kids, despite our best efforts, have not. In grappling with this fact, I've sort of come to realize that it's a feature, not a bug. Or maybe both.

Our parents came here looking for opportunity and a better life and knew they'd have to bust ass to get it. However, they also hoped their kids and grandkids and later generations would be able to build on what they've done to have it easier.

My teenage son may very well become a musician, which would be a recipe for financial insecurity if he didn't have the resources he'll likely inherit from me, assuming no financial catastrophies in the mean time.

His career choice will enrich the county's culture, where mine added incrementally to our country's scientific strength, but both are important.

The key thing in my mind is that the country needs to keep bringing in immigrants. Those new generations are almost by definition the most motivated, hard working people in the world. They are our secret weapon for global leadership. 

Catching up on this thread. I very much agree with your comments. Similar thoughts from John Adams, that John Adams, not from the perspective of Immigrants but people starting a new country.

I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.

Republicans seem to be afraid of many things.  Taxes, minorities, education, intelligence, God, the list goes on and on.

I think the real rational fear and discomfort people live with every day is easier to deal with because it's tangible and recognizable, and for the most part, survivable obviously. 

Now fear of the unknown, that's what produces a bunch of irrational thoughts and behavior.  Ironically, the irrational things that people spend huge amounts of time and energy fretting about rarely happen.  It's the shit you never saw coming or imagined would be possible that sneaks up behind you and whacks you a good one.

It's not really about the fruit. It's the trespass. Between wives I always move back aboard. I cannot tolerate rudeness. Too bad the Gadsden flag has been co-opted because I sure agree with the sentiment.

Saw one of these flying on the Bubba boats last weekend.

r/trump - Finally saw a boat here in Michigan with a Biden flag on it

Maybe this is the Gadsen version...

I saw a crabber with one of those flags flying off the stern cruising down 41.  I asked myself why he supports people that ruin the environs that provide his living.  It has watered down many of the protections for clean water.  I assume that the crabber also supported Red Tide Rick and De Shittus who have further weakened the rules that keep the water clean for growing his harvest.

Because fuck you crybaby-ass libby-rulls, that's why!

There will always be plenty more environment to pollute. God made it that way. Don't let concern for clean air and water dominate your life!

The answer is that they are too dim to make the connection.

They are the ones who ask "what happened" in the old saying.

That flag would look more realistic with some bullet holes in it

It's time once again to move to Florida.  Temps are dropping and now even the humidity is dropping.  Time to put up the new sails.

Florida - A great place to live*

I’ve got a dinghy sail to look forward to tomorrow, with no risk of hurricane,    A bit of canoeing last Saturday after work, on an almost empty lake.   How will I find time to wax the pocket cruiser for winter layup with all this boating going on?   .

I'd groan, but that would probably be misinterpreted.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/captive-black-leopard-mauls-man-florida-zoo/

A 50-year-old man has filed a lawsuit after wildlife officials say he was mauled by a captive black leopard in a backyard animal sanctuary in South Florida. Dwight Turner paid $150 for a "full contact experience" with the black leopard, which allowed him to "play with it, rub its belly and take pictures,"  WPLG reported.

A report by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the incident happened Aug. 31 in Davie, which is near Fort Lauderdale. The agency charged the owner with allowing full contact with an extremely dangerous animal and was cited for maintaining captive wildlife in an unsafe condition.

WPLG reports that Turner is now suing the owners and operators of the animal sanctuary.
