But that's why "we" have Homeowners' Associations -- to prohibit such
nefarious activities as changing my car's wiper blades while it is
standing in the driveway, allowing the kids to use sidewalk chalk for
its intended purpose, painting one's house the same color as the
original when all the others have changed color due to fading, or flying
the US flag. I'm not making these up: these are all cases where
Homeowners' Associations have sought to take legal action against
"violators" --- and in some cases costing the "violators" a packet of money.
