But every once in a while my daughter comes over with the grandpuppy and likes to let Rue (aka the puppy) out to run loose in the yard since she does not have anywhere fenced in to do that at home. Besides the fact that if Rue is not let outside every 20 minutes the cats will have heart attacks. Every single one of them.
So it was really annoying when it became obvious that the neighbor who has a much bigger and nicer house, yard, and car than I do, was running a little pipe straight from his house to the fence between our yards. Ahem. Straight to my yard, in other words. And the puddles and lakes in my yard that the ducks would visit after a good rain - were thanks to my neighbor with his nice house and basement with a sump pump.
|Never said I could dance!|
Today I got a letter. Very official and all that, documenting the claim that that neighbor was dumping sump water in this neighbor's yard. It included a conclusion that that neighbor was indeed running his sump pump water directly into this neighbor's yard and a letter would be sent instructing that neighbor to direct his drainage pipe elsewhere.
The best part? They sent pictures! Two 8x10's printed on computer paper, one taken in that neighbor's yard - and the other taken in this neighbor's yard. Wh-h-e-e-e-e-e !!!!!!!!!!!
Another happy dance down - no idea how many more - to go.
