Country living

To the Editor:

Picture a parade of vehicles with people you don’t know pulling up into your driveway or onto your property.

Then imagine many of them getting out and walking around your yard with cameras and taking pictures.

After all, they’ve never seen bald eagles this close and, certainly, they can be forgiven for walking around in your yard. Certainly, these days you have to trust the idea that strangers never would have anything but your best interests at heart.

So if you want me to allow you to trespass, could you give me your address to pass on to those who came before or after you and extend the same privilege to them? Arlington Club subdivision in Cary is privately owned, and the entire property is maintained (roads and all) by the homeowners. If you weren’t invited in, you’re trespassing, and some do have security cameras to record license plate numbers. But really, the Cary police have better things to do than charging the scores of you who’ve been coming in lately with trespass.

Please, please have the courtesy to let this serve as a notice to not wander around in our yards or park in front of our garages and driveways. Perhaps, while we’re at it, could you keep the snowmobiles on the frozen ice of the river and also not up into our subdivision and yards?
