I don't have pavements or lights either  --but I don't have busy roads with not enough space to walk up the side of never mind a pavement either. My husband walked to the supermarket once when he was there--never again, it just wasn't possible--it's a chicken an egg situation. If you want to walk there you have to drive to a park.

I know exactly what I'd be saying to any 'Commitee' visiting my door with a similar complaint.........................

Mind you, I defy anyone to hang their washing out on a Sunday in the Scottish Islands! They'd have a lynching mob at you! And as for whistling on a fishing boat.............................???

When I was young no one living in our village would have dreamed of either hanging washing out or going to the pictures on a sunday even when some started opening then---how times have changed.

We live far enough out of town that I can still use the clothesline, in town however....it is quite frowned upon. (and we are not a 'big city' area either).

We do have a dryer, but hand wash everything first...another *shocking* event in America! Saves us $$ on our electric bill.

Because of the ice in the winter (if we hung the clothes out....they'd be there until the thaw of springtime!   ) we do use the dryer, but it also doubles at that point as a heater!

I thought our area was the only one being so close minded about clothes lines.

In opinion there is nothing better than bed lining that has been hung out to dry in frost weather. I have taken them down from the washing line, so stiff, I was unable to fold them, had to let them thaw out a little indoors before I could fold them.

They smell so fresh, unless the farmer has been out with his slurry spreader.

I used to love seeing my childrens freshly washed nappies fluttering on the clothes line.

There are places over here with no clothes lines rules but we know of one couple that moved into one and put one up so local gang of three came around and pointed out rule he pointed to gate and offered to get police and trespass order, they left he got letter. They got told to try and inforce it, turns out they would have to go to court as it's just a civil matter now there are more clothes lines up    Helps hes is 6'2 and well built 30 year old
