Private Propterty

I live near a well liked public park and have had to deal with people who think our yard is public ground. The dog used to get nasty. At 14, we can only depend on her doing that with the UPS guy. Micro managing from the porch. I was standing up stairs and witnessed about 10 shirtless young men coming into my yard, laying on the grass and drinking out of the creek. I was about to say something when I realized the worst thing you could do was let someone drink untreated water. Hey, guys, things pee and poop in there and fish do it too.

You could start a side business of selling cholera,salmonella, test kits. Better yet, post signs, "contaminated sewer discharge" Then stock up on bottle water and sell them for $4/each. Might as well make some money while in misery.

Ugh, this makes my stomach flip around with the memory of having giardia. Not such a walk in the park...so to speak! That sounds annoying to constantly have people lurking in your yard.

Proof that you don't really need a clue to do some good in the area of gene pool improvement.

Getting a puppy now will also help in a year or so, on several fronts.

You could get one of these motion activated sprinklers.

I have wonder how upset I would be if it was 10 shirtless young women laying around my yard.

Seriously though, it is sad how little respect that some show for others property. The young are the worst it seems, as they do not yet realize the worth of many things.

True, and we're about to see just how little!

If they were causing a problem I guess I would call the authorities. But some guys hanging out taking about girls and cars and what ever young guys talk about these days, I'd cut them some slack. I might even offer them some water. They just might be the next ones called on to protect my rights, property and others Just a thought. Raz

They might also be the next one to destroy and or steal your property.

I just want you to know that I did not walk on your yard when I would hang out in that park. I did, however, find a nice bunch of morel mushrooms up the hill from you in the park.

Yup but I suspect they are less likely to do it if you take the time to get to know them. There is an old saying that it takes a village to raise a child. I have group of kids in the neighborhood who like to use my back yard to build mountain bike jumps over the lane way ditch. My partner actually helped them build a bit safer jump. I have no problem with them doing it even though it doesn't do my back lawn any big favors when its wet out as its nice to see kids outside and having fun. As a child my family owned property beside a public beach and we often had people cut through our front yard. my parents didn't make a fuss about that as they felt it was just a minor downside to being able to live beside a beautiful public beach.

Hmmmm..... Have you checked your insurance to see what happens if one of them - with your knowledge and consent - uses your property for his/her take-off ramp and the flight ends a tad spectacularly? just a thot......
