Neighbor and Daughter of PlateLawn

I'll type the handwritten part out so you don't have to strain your eyes.

"Does not include mailperson-friends or relatives.our-My yard is not contending for a beautification award. this property was purchased to use for betterment of those in need-yes, its messy sometimes when items are being sorted for distributution. If you don't like the way it looks, Look at, or walk on the other side of the street. If you have time to whine to the city about it, Please use that time to help the needy. visit the lonely-or teach a child to read-donate time at a school. If you aren't interested in making peoples lives easier, -and are conceited and self righteous, Remember, your day to stand before God is coming-Hope your excuse will be acceptable! No, I'm not perfect! but I'm not whining about you either"

Can I use their sign to teach my kids to read?

self-right·eous [self-rahy-chuhs] –adjective

Here's an idea. I have been contemplating doing this myself with some of the houses in the neighborhood north of mine where there are houses with no less than 9 cars parked in the yard. I am not exaggerating. Make a "Trashiest House in the Neighborhood" certificate or ribbon and place it on their door.
If that doesn't work, put a pumpkin on the porch with a knife through it and a note that says "You." You'll feel better and hey, no harm done.

This is the exact reason I live far away from people in general out in the middle of nowhere with no neighbors for 900 feet with fields of nothing surrounding..or maybe I'm just antisocial..either way freedom to roam and complain as I wish is just one of the great benifits..tell me again the problem with whining?

Two things. If she has this menagerie to help others then i want to be first in line for the broken plates. I am so in need of a few thousand plates broken plates. second, how did you get close enough to the door to get a picture of the sign? were you charged a fine?

Sugarpants, this is the neighbor and daughter of that previous post. They both hang their signs out on their homemade ....things. I should know the names of those things...that you put on a pathway and are curved. Anyway, they have those things out by the sidewalk, so anyone walking by can take a picture. The $500 fine one, I had stopped in the street and made Maddie, my daughter, get out and snap a pic.

Holy Crap there's two of them???? sugarpants...I like that name. Many people I sent emails to, who don't know my name, won't read the because they think it's porn.
