I thought this was America

  I thought this was America, home of the free, land of the brave and yet... this poor woman can't even hang out her dang laundry without someone giving her a raft of crap! In these times when people are doing all they can to hold on to what they've got this woman's neighbors want to tell her she can't hang out her laundry. It's not like she bought a house in a development that has bylaws about this sort of thing. She's living in an old farmhouse where, you can bet your sweet bippy there have been plenty of wash lines throughout the years

     Now I hang out my laundry when the weather permits, it's saves me at least $50 a month, that might be chump change to some, but it's a nice little bonus to our family budget. I also live out in the "country" so I don't have any neighbors on the other side of the street to complain. In fact my neighbors are pretty impressed I hang out my clothes (thanks mom and dad for the vote of confidence). 

     I just have to wonder why these people who choose to live in a cookie cutter house and follow the other lemmings blindly, feel the need to bother this woman who chooses to live a little greener. I'm sure these are the same people who feel the need to act like they're "green" but drive their 2 kids in a huge SUV and run their A/C all summer long without a break so they don't have to even think about what the temperature outside. I wonder if their windows even open?
   So Carin I salute you and your drying laundry. Hang those unmentionables with the rest of you clothing and tell the neighbors to go kiss your Aunt Fanny!
