Landscape drama

WE GOT AN EXTENSION!!!

Yes! It is true. We did indeed get an extension. We have an extra month to finish our yard. Which may be a little more do-able...maybe. The yard has been gutted and the debris has made it to the dump. We still have a long way to go. I just want to put up a sign that says
"I HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY!"

I spoke to the officer who cited us the ticket, she was............um......... lovely!

Her: "You have no reason for your yard to look that way after a year! A month maybe; but not a year"

Me: Well if you think the outside is bad you should of seen the inside.

Her: Well....

Me: I'd like to live inside and sleep here not outside, so all our work is happening on the inside. We were truly going to do it this spring.

Her: When is Spring?

Me: March 20th.

Her: Well, I can work with you as long as you are working on it. But, it shouldn't look like that after a year.

She took some notes of our conversation and our personal timeline. She said she'd be back to verify our progress! Oh I just hope EVERYONE IS HAPPY!!!!

I sure hope they back off. Would you get in trouble if you put up a sign that said "I hope you are happy"?

Ha ha! Love the hair extension pic, clever! I'm glad the old bag gave you an extension, some people have nothing better to do then cause trouble!!! That goes for the cop and neighbor!

WOW! I cannot believe we are paying cops to worry about yards... and I hate the girl ones so much they scare me... You ROCK to tell her off:) Not that I hate cops but please tell me they usually find more productive things to do... Can't Derek get them to cut you some slack HEHE Love the post LOL

I still can't belive that some complained about your yard in the first place. I'm glad you have a little more time to get it done. How nice that your dad is around now to help.
