A Toxic Update
Well crap! She's still next door! Over the years this next door neighbour has killed our plants by spraying brush killer on OUR property, poisoned our wildlife pond, cut our bushes, thrown her yard cuttings over our fence and into our yard, actually cut our chain link fencing in at least 7 places ......
Last year climbed on the top rail of our chain link fence and added 4 additional feet in height to prevent her from tossing her yard clippings into our garden. The fence is four feet high and I added additional protection in the form of vinyl coated garden fencing. I put a good 15-20 ft. of fence along the top of our existing fence. ~SIGH~
Yesterday I went outside and almost went into shock when I saw that the addition I had made last year was GONE! It had not just fallen down ... The fencing and the support poles I attached were gone along with the NO TRESPASSING sign!
When were they removed? I have no idea. I spent almost 3 hours putting up new fencing that is better attached, better reinforced and even higher! There is also a nice new NO TRESPASSING in bold red letters on a black background posted and attached high on the new section of fence.
I have not actually seen the Toxic One for months and months. Again ... no proof / pictures of her taking the fence down ... but who else?!?!? Again, can't bother the police with this because no proof of who did it.
But we remain on the look-out because it is not only spring here, it is Toxic Neighbour Season. And so our encounters continue.
