Hello. Painted and Big Guy? This is Mrs. R, your neighbor three doors down. I couldn't help but notice that your front yard has some er... new items in it. Like 2 coolers. Some odd looking green poles. Washed out cat litter pans. A Christmas tree stand. Several push brooms. Children's toys. FIVE garbage cans. Now you know that our neighborhood association rules clearly state that your garbage cans must be out of sight from the street. I'm fairly sure this statute applies to litter boxes, coolers, brooms, toys and random green poles. And Christmas was over well over 2 months ago. Now, you've always been good neighbors, even if you don't mow quite as often as you should and your garden could stand some weeding. But I'm beginning to worry that you will soon have a car up on blocks under that beautiful oak tree of yours. Don't even think about it. If these items aren't cleaned up immediately I will have to report you to the Neighborhood Association, and I would hate to have to do that. So please.... clean up your yard.
Oh. And by the way. My little girl is selling wrapping paper for school. Would you like to buy some?
