This morning Slugmama posted about her neighbors' RV blocking her line of vision because it's parked in their driveway all year.
Here's what we've had to look at off our back deck, day in and day out, for the four years that we've lived here. If you click on the photos, you'll have a better idea just how tall their "lawn" is.
The first three years we called codes on them numerous times and they mowed a couple of times each season. This year they mowed it once, despite our calls to our city councilman every few days. Seems the city is trying to get a warrant passed so that they can go on property without notice to mow after one failed attempt to get the homeowner to mow it themselves. That warrant hasn't come through and we don't expect any action to be taken this season. Apparently the homeowner either pays the fines she gets or ignores them.
Some of you may remember that these are the same neighbors whose dog broke its lead and bit Shane severely on the arm a couple of years ago, and who didn't even come over and ask if he was ok or say that they were sorry. They have been nothing but trouble for us since we bought our house.
The sad irony is that the woman's ex-husband runs a lawn service and her sons (who live next door with her) work for him. They bring the pro mowing machines home with them and mow the front yard about once every 10 days, but won't bother to open the gate and mow the back.
