"Klassy" neighbors, I got 'em

Tice has talked about her not-so neighborly neighbor Renee on her blog. You know, the ones with the falling tree, who yell at Tice's guests for parking in front of their house, rude children, and my new favorite call the police on her for having nudie babies jumping on her trampoline, in her privacy fenced in yard?
Yea them. 
So anyway, with the whole playing musical houses between the Sirmans'/ Chaffin's, I now have the great honor of becoming neighbors with the lovely neighbor Renee, formally known as Tice's arch rival.
Since our move to Tice's house, Renee has been friendly towards me and the only run in I've had so far has been about Stuart barking too much (5 minutes every 2 hours doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me, but whatev') and him escaping my back yard to her front yard (this happened once and she was not happy about it, something about the possibility of him having bowels in her yard, yada yada yada). 
Stuart has left our family since the semi drama between Renee and I but I don't think she aware of it yet and here's why...

It reads, "If you are reading this... your dog is "pooping" on my yard!! Pick it up!! Or keep walking!!
I blacked out the naughty word for your convenience, you're welcome.
This sign is located on Renee's front lawn for everyone to see and read (my 7 year old daughter thank you very much). 
She is one classy lady, let me tell you.
Now if you knew me, you'd know that I couldn't resist taking a picture of this fine literature.
I like photo opportunities like this one, I have the warped since of humor you know.
So I waited until Renee left to go pick her daughters up from school to go take the picture, I thought I was being real sneaky doing it this way, and my plan almost worked, "almost worked" being the key phrase here.
You see, I have this three year old who likes to talk, a lot ( I'm not complaining, I'm very grateful that he does) and he can be super friendly when he feels like it. 
He picked today to be the day to be feelin' awfully friendly to a certain neighbor of ours.
As soon as Renee came home from picking up her girls from school, Andrew went strait over to her and said...
"My Mama took a picture of your sign in your yard."
Tattle tale, hmpf.
Anywho, she just glared at me, and I responded with a friendly smile. 
There goes the good neighbor act. Ah well, wasn't gonna last forever I suppose.
The lesson I've learned today is the next time (oh and there will be a next time) I take a picture of something that amuses me, make sure that Andrew isn't around to witness.

oh wow...i cant get over the sign! the best part is that you dont even have the dog anymore. If only she knew you got rid of him already she would feel so stupid.

Classic Renee. Hope she finds this blog. If so, hey gurl! Nat's a fun neighbor, too, no?

I'm pretty sure that sign is illegal. I know the town of Manchester wouldn't approve. Perhaps a call to the po-po would cxlear that up?!

Oh, Nat, you do lead one exciting life! I would have loved to be a fly on the fence when Andrew told her. Just to see her face...
