    Anocxu saidROTFL.. Nude weeding at 8:pm..?? On a Wednesday..?? In Albuquerque??
    ..You just became the most popular guy on the block !
    I would love it ..if you were my neighbor..OMG !! icon_biggrin.gif

    .. I'm thinking it was embarrasing enough for both of you that there is a good chance nothing will come of this..Well except a title as..Freaky.. icon_cool.gif

    Actually, I really don't care of someone sees me nude. However, as a matter of courtesy, I'd avoid being seen nude of it could disturb someone and I would not want to be charged with indecent exposure. For some strange reason, some people see the human body as indecent.

    I didn't see him looking at me; he was looking at his evaporative cooler when I noticed him. However, it would have been almost impossible for him not to have seen me.

    MikemikeMike saiddoubtful -did he take your picture???


    No. I wouldn't expect anyone to have a camera with him when working on his evaporative cooler, air conditioning, or whatever when on the roof. If he had wanted to take my picture, he'd have had to climb down from the roof to get his camera.

    Actually, I find it somewhat amusing, but I am still slightly concerned about possible negative repercussions.

    I confess - I would probably be on my roof with binoculars. Are you sure he was doing roof work???

    Edward24 saidNo. But he might think your wacko lol jk icon_lol.gif


    That's possible. However, he's about 68 years old. When he (and I) were young, male nudity was not considered to be a problem or offensive when females were not present. I'd expect a younger person to be more concerned about nudity.

    HndsmKansan saidI wouldn't be unduly concerned. Not sure what kind of relationship you have with your neighbor, but even if he called the police, a case could be made that you were in the privacy of your backyard and your neighbor violated that privacy with the roof work.

    You might get looks from the neighbor, but I'd go on about my business.
    Should the police be called, I'd be prepared to discuss the matter... my guess you'd probably just get a warning.


    We're on cordial and cooperative terms, although we don't see each other very often. He does tend to be a bit unpredictable and moody, but everyone has his eccentricities.

    Either I'm having deja vu or this thread happened some time ago. Can't say it's the same guy or not, but, there seems to be a real fear among at least,er, one guy that he's going to get arrested for being nude in his yard. I wonder if that qualifies as a fetish, or maybe just discussing it. Odd.

    The worst thing you can do is lie to a cop !
    They think if you lie you are hiding not one but many things...
    ..People wonder why they get searched and sniffed out by drug dogs when they get pulled over..Cops think.. one lie..many cover-ups !


    You don't lie to them..you tell them what you want them to hear. icon_wink.gif


    Actually, if the cops were called, I'd take them to my back yard so they could see that it's completely private unless someone is on his roof which obviously occurs only rarely. I'd also offer to show them that my body is completely normal and nothing to become upset about.

    What I'm trying to show is it's not a big deal. Someone would have to call up the police and tell them to come to your house to see if you were naked in your own closed fence backyard with no sufficient evidence.


    And obviously if the cops rang, I'd cover myself before answering the door. It would be somewhat inconvenient for the cops to look into my back yard uninvited.

    FRE0 saidJust a few minutes ago, I was in my back yard nude, doing some weeding. When I heard something, I looked up and saw that my neighbor was on his roof working on his evaporative cooler. Unless people are on their roofs, which is uncommon, no one can see into my back yard.

    Do I have to worry about being arrested?

    Should I call my attorney to be prepared?

    Why...why were you outside totally naked?


    No, I was not totally naked. I was wearing shoes, socks, glasses, and a watch. There is something very pleasant about being able to walk around outside unclothed. Isn't that shocking? I don't suppose that anyone would want to join me.

    NO it's your own property. I do some naked gardening as well. If is in the roof doing his cooler mind his own business. You are not doing any lewd conduct. No worries.


    If I had your body, probably I'd want to show it off!

    Jockbod48 saidMy attorney would strenuously advise you NOT to open your door when / if any cop comes knocking. You have NOTHING to say. (If the cop had a warrant, he would be coming in and you'd still have NOTHING to say. You'd call your attorney to meet you at the station). But there is not going to be any warrant in your case. Seriously: Do not open the door to a cop. Trying to explain your side of a situation to a cop can be a very foolish thing. My attorney said he makes a fortune getting people out of trouble when they've tried to talk their way out of a situation - to a cop or detective.

    My cousin is a judge, and he said it is normal for people to feel that a cop is a nice, neutral, bright guy - who - when he hears the story, will understand, and everything will be alright. This could go badly for you. The cop comes out to hear a complaint, and decides quickly who is the good guy - and who is the bad guy. The complainant is who the cop hears first. You - the defendant are already in second position. If the cop has already decided the complainant is the "good guy" then nothing you say will be of any use. The cop will actually use anything you say to work the case against you. He may even decide to cuff you and arrest you for being belligerent. My cousin warns that the cops are not usually nice, neutral, bright guys. He warns that many cops took that job because they couldn't do anything else. Not all - - just most - - he said.

    The advice from my attorney and my cousin (the judge) is to NOT open your door. Even if the cop knows or thinks you're home - - - stay away from the door and windows. He cannot hurt you without a warrant. He CAN hurt you if he doesn't like your story. You do not want to answer his questions. You have nothing to say. Remembering this will save you a fortune in legal fees, and maybe a night in jail. People do not have to talk to the police.


    My house is equipped with a security system. Presumably I could talk to a cop using the security system without opening the door. With the heavily bared security door, it would not be easy to break in without breaking a window.

    Maybe your neighbor is worried that you may call the cops on him for spying on you and invading your privacy.


    I'm sure he knows that I would never do such a thing. Although we don't often see each other, we do have a cooperative relationship.

    dayumm saidWhat is funny is, if your neighbor started jacking off on the roof to the sight of you naked, YOU would have probable cause to have HIM arrested! icon_lol.gif


    If that happened, which is exceedingly unlikely, I'd just pretend not to notice and go inside. He's about 100 pounds overweight. It's amazing that he can climb a ladder to get onto his roof. He even drives three blocks to the grocery coop to buy a couple items which could easily be carried.

    Most likely.

    I lived in San Diego from 1978 to 1994. In California, people generally seem unconcerned with such things. In San Diego, near La Jolla Shores Beach, I several times saw surfers changing clothes right on the street and they were briefly totally naked; no one seemed to care. On the roof of a changing room at that same beach, I saw a guy doing a nude towel dance with people on the ground cheering. Things like that would be very unlikely to occur here in New Mexico. There is nothing here like Black's Beach, unfortunately.

    Yes; when I noticed him, it was because of the noise that resulted from his removing a panel from his evaporative cooler.

    Perhaps, but I'm not much older than he is and I'm certainly in far better condition.

    You should be more concerned about West Nile Virus than being arrested man. Hope you were wearing DEET.

    There aren't many mosquitoes here. Since I have already survived dengue fever (it was no worse than a mild case of the flu), probably I could survive West Nile.

    Also, wouldn't DEET sting on sensitive parts of the body?
