Sign & fence laws…
.(Evelyn, this is Monday's blog---- don't pay attention what blogger has put at the top, they stamp it and wait a day to post it. Now try to be nice or Imma tell Don!) Now for Monday's exciting Blog entry!:
I am a law abiding citizen (for the most part). I actually seldom speed. I try to be courteous on the road and not drive reckless. When I built houses I stayed way within the law. My construction was never questioned by the inspectors.
I have ran rough-shod over some local laws I felt went against my homeowner's-rights. My argument would not hold up in court, but if taken there I would give it a logical try. (I like Rick’s statement about laws in his parts: I am not sure murder is against the law in our county.)
Sign laws seldom bother local folk, because they know where every thing is. i.e.
1…White’s Restaurant?............. East end!
2… Jerri-Lynns? East End close to White’s.
3… McDonalds, Hardees, BoJangles… Cross roads!
No problem, but if you are from out of town, looking for McD’s to use the rest room and get a coke, it is frustrating to hear someone say ‘After YOU PASS IT’, There WAS a McD’s back there. That doesn’t happen in areas with no sign laws.
How do I know this? Experience, as a constant traveler. Many times I have nearly wet myself trying to spot a sign of any kind that would give me some relief. (Most times if I use their bathroom, I will gladly buy something).
I am anti-sign laws especially when towns pass sign laws to limit the height of signs of businesses to 8'.

I’m not crazy about ‘privacy’ fences completely around a residence, but if someone feels it is necessary they should be allowed to do it. Most towns you can have a privacy fence in the back of your home, but NOT PASSED THE CENTER of your home. Even the fence in front is subject to your city council’s opinion of acceptable.

I am the normal man (methinks), what my neighbor does in his yard is his business. That is contrary to the ladies opinions i.e.Evelyn, Sherry and Shirl. Things get too cluttered, messy, trashy, junky etc. They even resent us boys having a couple junk cars in the front-yard to work on or get parts off. You know, common sense type things. LOL.
