Yah, we actually got a warning from a by-law officer about the clothes line in our back yard...
We were told to take it down right away or we would get a fine.
Bylaw officers explanation "If a trespasser is running through your yard at night he might accidentally hang himself."
Our reply "If a trespasser is running through our yard at night, he DESERVES accidentally to hang himself" LOL
The officer didn't think it was funny.....
