And now the bad part about the new house ...

I got home last night to find a note in my mailbox from the head of our homeowner's association - yes the new house comes with one of those.

The note was announcing an "emergency meeting" to be held tonight at 7. The subject of the meeting is "an ongoing problem" with how people are handling their dogs or something like that.

If this wasn't described as an "ongoing" problem, I'd think maybe the HOA is not happy that the Big Brown Dog and the Little Black Dog came along with us to the new place. Both dogs enjoy barking at people walking down the street, the dog next door, etc. and the Little Brown Dog just enjoys barking to hear the sound of his own voice.

But considering we've only been in the new house for 11 days, I doubt they qualify as "ongoing." I'd guess the "emergency" has something to do with people not picking up dog shit from their neighbors yards over in the cul-de-sac or somesuch.

In any case, it'll be our first encounter with the HOA and the "cul-de-sac people" (our house is one of four built outside the cul-de-sac on existing roads in East Atlanta). We also owe our annual dues, which we will hand over tonight. And I'll use the opportunity to find out a little more about what the $200 per house dues actually pay for (other than the cost of printing "emergency meeting" notes to put in mailboxes).
