    Our local Zoning People are prosecuting the use of outdoor clothlines.

    Seems its Declasse now that our formerly rural area has joined exurbia
    and we have aspirations to attract "the better sort".

    What about saving energy? What about global warming? what about energy independence?

    Seems the goverment talks out of both sides of its mouth

    outdoor clothes lines may not be so objectionable if you gave it a cool name- like: solar powered clothes dryers-

    Or mabe even speak to them in their own lingo, governmentese; "Solar activated materials dehumidifier." ( and then package it and sell it to the folks that buy $1000.00 toilets for the gov. A hank of line and a bag of closepins only $$$$$) *LOL*

    This infuriates me. How crazy are people that don't find clothes hanging on the line a thing of beauty and art?

    I agree Symple, we clothes hanger upers take great pride in our arangements of the clothing we carefull wash and dry in the light of life giving sunlight. sure beats the heat of the dryer in the summer months and beats the heck outta the utility bill. :)

    i have such fond memories of the laundry hanging on the clothesline when i was a kid. now hardly anyone does that. i dried mine indoors on a wooden clothes rack until it broke. i gotta find a new one.

    hippies wear underwear?!?.. gee and all this time I thought edible undies were the answer.. besides.. ladies change and wash their udies and hang them in the bathroom, not outside for birds and bugs to poop on. Defeats the purpose of washing them.

    never ceases to amaze me how superficial people have become ......reason i won't live in a city ..by-laws ,by-laws,by-laws ........but to ban outdoor clotheslines is against the very fabric of conservation ..if i had a neighbor who complained about something like that i would paint my car with the craziest colors and park it close to the road just to get their goat.....

    wow, this *is* sad... i have this awesome kynd laundry soap that smells like lavender... and then after hanging clothes on the line?... awesome... nothing better :)

    although the smell of a dryer drying (usually the smell you get outside from the pipe) is a childhood memory kicker for me too! but that was in winter in 2 ft. of snow...
