Re: the wild blue yonder

Love it, Just make sure now that you have the proper sign permit. I would go ahead and make sure that you could put a spot light on it at night as well. I think your planters could use some well placed up-lighting for the full effect. Maybe rope light for a sense of continuity..
Tell the "powers that be in everybody elses bidness" that you are trying to start a church for wayword and abused squirrels. Then explain that the bus is the only way to move them all at one time(cause they have lots of relatives). Their meetings are a form of therapy. Then there is the fact that they have such short little arms it's hard for them to steer let alone reach the pedals. Please I beg of you to feel sorry for my little friends.
With that they should feel ashamed for harassing you and maybe want to contribute to your mission. Or think your a little off and leave you the hell alone. I think it's the fact that there is nothing on TV to keep those bitching neighbors entertained. So with that they pry their sorry asses off the couch only to stir up local drama.

Call it "art" and they can't do much!

Re: the wild blue yonder

Since my wife asked me in a polite but forceful way to please remove the "yard art", I went out this morning with every intention of complying with her directive. Just as I walked outside, the code enforcement gentleman pulled up again. Guess my sign jerked the right chain! He is really a nice guy, said I am completely within my rights to have this junk in the yard, but since the jerk called again, he has to come check it out. Well this visit changes everything....
obviously the jerk doesn't get the point. So its off to the tire store for some dead tires and Home Depot for some dayglow spray paint.
I worked furiously on the new planters / yard art and new sign, Suzy gets home at 2pm and not only did I not remove this idiocy as instructed, now its doubled in size and is dayglow. My belief is that her fury is is a small price to pay for setting a bully straight... Yes, I AM that stubborn.
Anyway many people slowed and honked, giving me the thumbs up, some even stopping to take pictures. All but one old man down my street who just this last year gave me a long disertation on private property rights and how the neighbors had faught him when he built his shop ( which he ran his business out of, a big can't do around here) behind his house, a fight which he won (this happened well before my time living here). This man slowly drove by and gave me the finger! I guess private property rights only apply to him.
So here's the latest and hopefully last of the big member contest. I really want to get back to building my bus.

Take a picture of him giving you the bird and add it to your lawn art.

Re: the wild blue yonder

I saw an article where some guy was told he couldn't have a flag pole on his property so he retaliated by painting his house like the American flag. Another family was a bit lax about cutting their grass and the local code enforcement told them to cut it or they would have it done at their expense. They bought a bunch of non-flowering plant seeds and broadcast them over the yard. Now it's a garden and they have the reciepts to prove it.

Let anarchy flow Brother.

Re: the wild blue yonder

I've had issues with code enforcement before. Lots of fun. Neighbors are dicks. One minute they're asking for help, the next they're calling code enforcement. I hate neighbors.

In this case, the code enforcement guy is not really a problem, just a guy doing what hes paid to do, he actually gave me a few pointers on what could or could not be done. Mind you, he did not take sides, but I got the impression he thinks the whole situation is ridiculous.
The neighbor on the other hand, total hairy beanbag. I don't think he was expecting the response given. I get the impression from him that he is the self appointed king of the street, not used to anyone standing up to him in such a public fashion, the signs and art are directly across the street from the entrance of a Kroger strip center, very visible and very public. Nothing like a little public humiliation to recalibrate a moron. Maybe he will move now.

Re: the wild blue yonder

I was a person in the sign business for many years...You without a doubt are so getting even with this idiot. Nothing gets attention like a well placed bright green frown on a toilet seat.
