Don and his thoughts

I figured out how I'm going to get back at the HOA.

I didn't see any mention in the rules(btw, oil changes are a ok) that I couldn't build a medieval war machine

trebuchet anyone?



I did the calculations, If I factor in wind direction I might be able to land a diseased cow on her lawn or near it

Be careful. HOA boards are likely to contain petty dictators more than willing to spend your money on attorneys to get back at you.

You could get a bunch of friends with straight piped Diesels to buzz by their house every 30 seconds. Is there any regulation against driving through the neighborhood?

They would be hard pressed to prove that the dead skunk under their porch didn't crawl under there to die....


Or there's the one that always seems to kill American noses. Cook sardines on the grill





Yum!
