Earth Day is Coming!
Last year in my little home town there was a major controversy. A woman, Susan Taylor, hung her laundry out to dry. This seemingly benign action sparked a major debate that made it all the way to the Wall Street Journal. You see, a clothesline went against her neighborhood’s covenants. And, as one neighbor put it, “this bombards the senses...it can’t possibly...make people think this is a nice neighborhood.”
Now I happen to live on this same little butte in this same little town, albeit not in the same neighborhood. And, I happen to love clotheslines. They are romantic, energy efficient and, in my humble opinion, aesthetic. So, in honor of Earth Day, my neighbors and I will be displaying our clotheslines with pride, in the FRONT YARD (Oh my, did she say that? A clothesline in the front yard? What is this world coming to? What about the property value?)
I’d like to invite all of you out in bloggerville to join me. Earth Day is April 22, 2008. This happens to be a Tuesday. But, my line will be out starting Saturday April 19th, rain or shine. Let's join together and show the world what Earth Day is really about!
