We'd better be careful, or that might come back and bite us in the - OUCH! What was that?

As if "karma cramps" weren't bad enough, we've gotten a taste of just how unhappy our backyard neighbours are: they called the city inspectors on us today.

The city inspector popped by for an unscheduled visit, without warning, and left a note in our mailbox that we have to install a temporary fence around the pool. I called her back to explain that the rest of the fence is going in tomorrow (so far only the posts are there); she said that was fine then, no temporary fence is necessary. She explained that they had received a complaint and had to follow up on it. I can only think of one direction that such a complaint might have come from.

I guess our neighbours are even more impatient to get this project finished than we are. Can't say that I blame them.

But now I'm worried that we're going to receive complaints any time we have a party, anytime we do anything that displeases them ... Guess we really "screwed the pooch" on this one, as Steve's dad likes to say.

P.S. I should note that we've been told that the fence has to be completed before the liner and water go in. We've never been told we needed a temporary fence.
