  1. Karlyne says:

    I know there are HOAs which don’t allow clothes lines at all. Isn’t that terrible?!

  2. Jean Pici says:

    Well, dang, you mean I have to stop building tables? Oh No!! But at least I know my pet Sasquatch is safe. LOL.

  3. Krista Butters Davis says:

    These made me chuckle! The best part is thinking how these laws even came into place. Did someone really take a lion into a cinema or go fishing on a giraffe’s neck? I think the vacuuming one really makes me laugh. Hopefully no one makes a mess that really needs to be vacuumed in the night.
