Daily Rant&Rave: Tame that overgrown yard

RAVE To the Seattle Yacht Club member who rescued me with a tow when my boat engine died in the San Juan Islands, helping keep the spirit of friendly “boater-helping-boater” seamanship alive on Puget Sound.

RANT To all those folks with overgrown yards, tall trees that drop leaves, and ivy — think about how that affects your neighbor’s yard. I’m tired of picking up leaves and pulling overgrown ivy off my fence. One neighbor has an overgrown yard with rats, it’s disgusting. Grow up and accept the responsibility of homeownership!
