Restrictive Covenants Are A Pain

Sometimes Homeowner Associations don't have the sense God gave a horsefly, as in this case where one is suing a women for trying to make her pool safer. Apparently her neighbor wasn't too happy. (Note to Tom Gauer: It is spelled Leawood, not Leeward. Don't trust your spell checker every time.) Too bad she probably violated the contract she signed. I'm lucky not to have to put up with this. In my old neighborhood the association was more sensible. When they noticed that lots of folks were putting up garden sheds, and thereby breaking the no outbuildings rule, they proposed that we change the rule. It passed unanimously.
