From Pine View Farm

Hung Out To Dry 3

No legal protections for clotheslines in Virginia:

This year Puller tried a different name for the onetime backyard fixtures: “natural drying devices.” Her bill, SB221, was prompted by a constituent whose community association wouldn’t let her put up a clothesline. It passed the Senate 37-3.


Still no dice. The (House of Delegates) panel tabled the measure, effectively killing it. The 5-2 vote broke down along party lines, Democrats for and Republicans against.

Since this proprosal protects an individual freedom (to hang clothes out on the line) and makes environmental sense, but does not involve guns, it is quite logical that Republicans would oppose it.

    1st: I’m glad to see you back.

    2nd: What did you change? Different look is throwing me off.

    3rd:  There is the potential for manual strangulation with a clothesline, they should like that.

    They are beginning to sound like the various covenent controlled areas here. Big blowhards.

    1.  It’s good to be back.

    2.  The theme I have been using since 2005 no longer works with the newest WP.  Someone has reworked it, so I got that and tweaked it:  I changed some of the colors and font sizes, changed out the picture, edited the sidebar, and stuff like that there.  Consider it Pine View Farm 1.1.  I’ll probably tinker with the colors some more, but it was in good enough shape to use.

    3.  Wingnuts on the rampage here.

    If you tinker with the colors, can the red be changed? Kills my headache.
